Beyond reviews, defies reviews
14 August 2015 | by mrgprxtnSee all my reviews

This is one of the rarest of the rare movies that, in typical Uppi style simply defies any review. The only way to review this would be to watch it yourself. There are only two types of people - those who love Uppi movies and those who don't understand Uppi movies. This guy is like a genetically engineered hybrid of Nolan, Tarantino and Hitchcock.

This movie requires at least 2-3 viewings to even sink in. The climax simply leaves you shell-shocked and if you see the faces of those coming out of the theater, it will be like they saw a ghost or something. While successful movies from all languages are remade in other languages, I've always wondered why Upendra's movies are never remade, but only dubbed. The answer is simple. It is impossible to remake Upendra's content. I don't think there is any director or actor in the world or at least India who has either the guts or the capacity to remake Upendra's movies.

And it is to Kannada film industry's eternal credit that talents like Upendra or Rakshit Shetty, Anup Bhandari or even Puttanna Kanagal and Shankar Nag can emerge without any godfathers or famous, well connected fathers!

Take a bow Uppi! Take a bow Sandalwood!
