Truly a Masterpiece.
1 April 2014 | by deepakbloreSee all my reviews

Ulidavaru Kandanthe is a path breaking & landmark cinema in Indian Film industry. Hats off to Director Rakshit Shetty for such a brave attempt. The non linear story telling approach, the way coastal Karnataka life is captured, Actors who perfectly fit the incredible characters, World class Camera work and background score, everything is just perfect.

The film has Brilliant naturally shot Cinematography , Music like Tarantino Movies, truly outstanding Background score, Very intelligent Screen play, Amazing acting by most of the actors.

Its like Quentin Tarantino & Martin Scorsese coming together for a Indian movie.

Ulidavaru Kandanthe is not just a movie, it is a mind bending experience.
