One small step called Ulidavaru Kandanthe A Gaint Leap for Kannada Film Industry
30 March 2014 | by jayanthbumaiyyaSee all my reviews

Ulidavaru Kandanthe

It is a Bold, intuitive , innovative and extraordinarily simple yet extremely effective machinery which transformed the way a story is told.

It is non linear way of narration , equally justifying each charterer and showing their depth, We all are heroes in our own life and we cannot walk away from our story.... and our story is always the way we want it to be..... often we chose to ignore the facts for the fairy tale, for it comforts us in despair and gives a hope....

This is capitalized in this story telling, where each narrator feels that his perspective is the truth. Even a small material will cause a large shadow when its rightly placed at the right time.A butterfly effect of events which will cause an avalanche of catastrophes...

Plot is very simple, but strongly supported by astonishing script and mesmerizing acting. Last but not the least kudos to the debut directer /writer Rakshit Shetty to pulling an incredible master piece.

That said, this cinema is like summer rain which makes you feel like you are in paradise, the entire movie holds your undivided attention and the music is brilliantly fixed on to the script its very hard to see it as a separate entity.

Movies seems to be inspired by few Hollywood flicks which is not a bad thing when its so elegantly executed.
