Story: An alright film, the story begins on a flashback mode and this is about Mohan (yogish) who is a milkman. He falls in love with Neeli (radhika) who comes from a traditional Brahmin family. As expected, Mohan with great difficulty manages to win her heart but Neeli’s father Sridhar Sastry (ramesh bhat) doesn’t agree. However, Mohan goes ahead and gets the heart operation done for Sridhar Sastry without expecting anything which floors the old man. He is ready to get Mohan married to Neeli. But trouble comes in the form of Soori (mico nagaraj) a powerful underworld don who wants to take revenge on Mohan. What happens after that forms the rest of the story.
Presentation: The director has come up with a known storyline and while the presentation was decent, the narrative was good in parts. The dialogues were well written but few were routine. The script was written with some nice moments but screenplay was having few jerks. Background score was excellent and three songs are nice. Cinematography was appealing. Editing was required especially during the first half and few minutes after the interval. Costumes were natural and rustic while the art department suited the moods. Yogish has delivered another good performance and he carries it off with grace. Radhika Pandit was graceful and she looks pretty. Ramesh Bhat was regular. Mico Nagaraj was menacing. Nayana was natural, Rakesh was not upto the mark.
Conclusion: The film comes across with the regular storyline of love followed by a mafia backdrop but there were few peaks in it. While the first half goes about with the regular elements of romance, songs, few comedy scenes etc, it is the second half which has some melodrama and some twists attached to it. The key setback for the film was the length which tested the patience of the audience. At the box office, the film might be a below average to average grosser.
