    Nan Magale Heroine Movie Review

    Rating: 1.5/5

    An aspiring filmmaker lands his first break. The only problem is that he has to agree to a lot of conditions, and the film that he is making is not what he aspires to tell. How does he overcome all the obstacles?

    There are quite a few films that have been made that deal with the troubles in making a full-length feature film. This film also joins that list. And like most of those films about films, Nan Magale Heroine does not live up to what one expects of an entertaining satire about tinsel town. One of the biggest reasons for this is that the film lacks an engaging screenplay. The film relies on gags and dialogues to do the same, and that takes away the interest of the viewers. While the ensemble comic cast is the best that one could ask for, the comedy offered is below average. At most times, one wonders what the joke was or where the story is progressing. The satire and spoofs fail in that regard. The editing is also jagged and one finds it hard to sit through the entire film.

    Sanchari Vijay is a talented actor and his National Award is testimony to that. One only hopes he gets a better film next time to do justice to what he can offer on screen.

    KEMPRIVE MOVIE REVIEW: A WORN-OUT DRAMA

    Rating: 2/5


    This film seesaws between being classy and lousy. Its core plot is good. It has a couple of memorable characters to which the actors have given outstanding performances. On the other hand, much of the film is made to look like a poor TV serial and there are quite a few deadwood scenes. The first 20 minutes of the film are very poor. Poorly constructed scenes assault you. A bad song drops out of nowhere and stone-faced actors dance to it. If you survive that, the rest of the film has an interesting story.

    The best thing about the film is Laxman Shivashankar’s acting.

    He steals the show and even manages to outdo the veteran Dattanna on most occasions. He is a real find and an actor to look forward to.

    A retired old man is entrapped by land sharks who use him as a front for the nefarious deeds. He finds himself too deeply in the muck. His attempts to extricate himself should have been most of the narrative. Instead, the plot is padded up with some worn-out family scenes and an unwatchable love story. Though there is some meaty stuff in the middle, the climax is again botched up. There are some interesting dialogues, situations and incidents.

    Kemprive could have been presented in a memorable neo-noir manner. There are only flashes of it.

    For the film to be good, the director had to be ruthless like the character of Naidu. But he is more like the safety-seeking character of Venkatesh Murthy-galu.
