New Hope in Kannada Cinema
15 July 2015 | by shreekara-1995See all my reviews

''RangiTaranga'' the Magnum Opus by extremely talented crew proved that Kannada Cinema has that potentiality to go beyond those stereotypical movie formula and win the audience heart, this piece of work never seems to be as the work of the débutante where there is sheer perfectionism and the ensemble artistic elements.

RangiTaranga is one among those movies that elevate the standard of an entire cinema industry and makes its viewers feel proud of their nativity, this movie has very beautiful narrative pattern and brings its audiences into its flow without any strain, mesmerizing cinematography by Lace Kaplin and William David makes every frame as the work of an art, another plus point of this flick is the fantastic BGM by Ajaneesh Loknath that enhances the intensity of the visuals and totally elevate the experience of viewing, technically it's the best among very few movies that made its mark in 'Kannada Cinema Rang', Anup Bhandari as the captain of the team had rendered his work so precisely and had showed all the possible quality of being the tremendous director that one could rely on giving good works, such a fabulous start had also increased the responsibility of giving good movies on Mr. Director, lyrics and typical Kannada songs are truly appreciable.

Nirup Bhandari is the new charm in Sandalwood and also has all those traits of being a good actor, there are slight few things that if he mould himself to the perfection then he moves to be the best, Radhika and Avanthika makes their debut with their good elegant performance, Siddu Moolimani is the person to be appreciated for his awesome on screen presence and comedic appearance, the actual star is Sai Kumar a person endowed with tremendous acting ability had provided full justice to his assigned role, in this phase Mr. Director made the proper selection.

Portrayal of Karavali Karnataka's Bhootha Kola along with syncing music especially 'Dannana' track is the highlight; wonderful locations are other special aspects that add extra beauty to its flow, overall this Kannada thriller stands as the synonyms to the quality and excellence.
