A Must Watch Kannada Movie
18 October 2011 | by (India) – See all my reviews

School Master is classic film starring Uday Kumar, Shivaji Ganeshan. It was the first Kannada film to complete Silver Jubilee Celebration. It's an good example about how good Kannada movies were those time. The story revolves mostly around Producer-cum-Director B.R.Pantulu, who plays the role of School Master and his wife. Uncommon about Balkrishna is that he plays a positive role in the film. Bustling actor Narasimharaju is also there.

Film has some sentimental and emotional moments and laughable moments too. It has some classroom incidents. Film also has some village politics at the start, which continues to influence the school master character throughout the film. The Film teaches life lessons. And the film has lots of reality, unlike compared to other recent movies.

I never cry while watching the movie, but this movie brought tears to me. It's certainly a must watch Kannada movie. You watch this movie with any (high)expectation, you end up liking this film. The film reminds me my Great-Granpa, who was also a school teacher who was similar principles. Shivaji Ganeshan's Character in the film is heart touching.

I watched this movie today, and it's my first review. I thought of giving 9 at the start of movie, but now i know it's worth giving 10 to this movie.
