  • Buckaasura Review, Chitraloka Rating 3.5/5

    buckaasura movie review

    Buckasura is not the regular kind of film you see. Director Navaneeth who directed the successful horror film Karvva earlier is back with a suspense filled film that introduces a stunning variety of narrative and incidents. The film has suspense, thrills, legal drama, romance and sentiments and to top it all some good performances. 

    The film starts with a lawyer who is trying to make it big. He lives with his mother and does not know who his father is. His luck changes suddenly when his senior advocate dies in a freak accident. Arya is after money and even changes his name to Money. But he begins to make money in a strange manner. 

    After winning a sensational case, he is taken under the wings of a businessman Chakaravrthy (Ravichandran). Everything he touches becomes gold. He is daring, he is talented and he takes necessary risks to get the job done. The dream run of Arya alienates him from his mother. Chakravarthy is however teaching him not only how to make money but also how to lead a good life. But before he realities what is happening another strange twist arrives. 

    All that he believed is turning out to be strangely different. Arya finds himself in the middle of strange happenings. What is really happenning? Who really is Chakravarthy? Does Arya manage to extricate himself from the dangerous grip of a dangerous client? All these are answered in the second half of the film. 

    The film has good performances from the main characters. RJ Rohit succeedes as a young lawyer whose thirst for success takes him on a dangerous terrain. Kavya Gowda shows good presence and has an interesting character which she manages to make use of. Ravichandran as the flamboyant businessman is awesome. Sadhu Kokila adds character to his comic role. 

    The film is rich and entertaining. The film's making is top class and there is good quality behind the camera. There is high standards of film quality which adds to the unique story. Buckasura is one of the better films this year and stands out. 

    Chitraloka Rating 3.5/5

    crazy star back as lawyer

  • Crazy Star In Aa Drushya With No Heroine Or A Song!

    crazy star in aa drishya with no heroine and song

    After the huge success of Drishya, which was a suspense thriller, Aa Drushya has raised a lot of expectations amongst his fans and the audience. Ravichandran plays a retired police officer in it.

    Usually Ravichandran's films are packed with good number of melodious and peppy numbers which are made with utmost care and love, showcasing him along with heroines in a grand set. But, in Aa Drushya, his fans are up for a pleasant surprise to watch him with no songs or a heroine!

  • Dasharatha review: Chitraloka Rating 3.5/5*

    dasharatha review

    As per the epic Ramayana, Dasharatha as the father of Lord Ram is well documented but whereas his bonding with his daughter Shantha, the first born child to him and his wife Kaushalya still remains to be one of the less talked-about episodes in ancient history. Taking cue from it, director M S Ramesh has delivered a modern version of Ramayana with unique twists and women in focus.

    After the tremendous success of Drishya, Crazy Star V Ravichandran, returns to play another subtle character with utmost perfection decorated with skilful portrayal of an advocate in this one. With him, comes the talented bunch of female artists - Sonia Agarwal and Abhirami who return to sandalwood after sometime, and Meghashree as his daughter.

    Dasharatha is high on family sentiments and courtroom drama. Like Seeta in Ramayana faced difficult situations in her life, even Shantha had faced similar sequences. Drawing inferences from it, the character of Meghashree puts the modern tale of Dasharatha in action, proving the guilt of a perpetrator in the eyes of the judiciary.

    As per the tale goes, Dasharatha is a successful lawyer with a happy family. However, things go awry when his daughter fall prey to an evil with the backing of another evil with a history attached to past life of Dasharatha. While in Drishya Ravichandran faced the situation as a commoner with impeccable qualities, but here he is loaded with the experience of an intelligent lawyer.

    The three female artists render justice while it is Ravichandran who shines both inside and outside the courtroom drama tagged with family sentiments. MS Ramesh does justice to his unique version of Ramayana packed with decent entertainment in the end. A must for crazy fans and family audience seeking for a well-balanced two plus hours of entertainment.

  • Hoo Movie Review

    hoo movie image

    Ravichandran returns both as a director and actor in the same film after three years. It is time for his fans to rejoice as no one contests the fact that whatever the fate of the film, it remains a visual treat. And so does Hoo. There is the glamour of Meera Jasmine and oomph of Namitha adding attraction to this film.

    Anand (Ravichandran) and Jasmine (Meera Jasmine) are childhood friends. They are inseparable. Jasmine's father (Rangayana Raghu) is a cake maker and Jasmine becomes a music teacher. Anand however becomes a chess player on the insistence of Jasmine. But this means, he does not have a steady earning and becomes a burden on his family who desist him for this reason. There is more problem with the death of Jasmine's father and she has to move to Anand's house.

    But Jasmine manages to not just win over his family members but also make them understand Anand's potential. In the meantime Anand falls in love with Namitha. The close friendship of Anand and Jasmine is misunderstood by everyone. Anand falls into a unenviable situation of choosing between chess and his friend.

    The story is handled well and there is a clear structure to the screenplay. There are only a few changes made to the original film Vasantam (Telugu) of which Hoo is a remake. The style is markedly Ravichandran. Individually everything in the film is lovely. Together it should have been a perfect fit. Everyone has done their job and gone home.
