Masterpiece of cultural Karnataka...
29 November 2011 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Siddalingaiah has given so many wonderful gems to Kannada film industry and true living legend. We may as well know that Dr Rajkumar is an un-disputable legend who ruled the industry for half a decade and he is still ruling in our heart's. Let me just start by saying this the Rajeev's character in the movie is strike on match to rajanna . Story is simple but presented very effectively and with very much essence of our culture. you can see the camera position and the huge budget for songs and the sets they came up with everything is just right on from beginning to end. After watching the movie like zillion times each and every time I watch,i am very much moved by balanna's character, in my opinion the true hero of this movie is balakrishna. You can see in each every frame and in every dialogue his majesties true excellence. He is by far the best in the movie his character has a lot more to offer than the Rajeev's character. I'm not going discuss the story you have to enjoy all by yourself and the songs geezz one of the true classic composition by the master . If you don't know Kannada, if you don't now Rajkumar, watch it you may end up being a die hard fan like the rest of us. THIS MOVIE IS DEDICATED TO THE FORMERS. Im going with 8/10 for siddalingaiah's bangarda manushya , this movie got lot more to offer than you can ever imagine .
