Goofs

Someone has written this as goof "The village Kamarottu is told to be in the Dakshina Kannada (Mangalore) district of Karnataka. However the car that the lead pair take to reach Kamarottu bears the registration number of Kerala (this can be seen towards the end of the song "Dennana Dennana")." But in my opinion it is totally fine to drive Kerala registered vehicle in Karnataka. I have seen many Puducherry registered private vehicles in Dhawarad and Belagavi districts. Moreover Kerala is neighboring state of Dakshina Kannada. So it is not factual error. See more »

Excellent Movie and must Watch
15 July 2015 | by mahantesh-64437See all my reviews

Fantastic movie, gripping storyline and screenplay. Technically the movie is very rich, the camera-work is treat to watch with beauty of Malanadu. Kudos to the director who delivered such an amazing movie in his first attempt. Songs are melodious, catchy and lyrics is fresh and meaningful. Story is so gripping it keeps you guessing you the next scene, but most of the time you will fail with unexpected twists.

All the actors justify their role with ease, no mass scenes for hero more realistic characters, In fact story is the hero in this movie.

Climax is thrilling and any description about it would ruin the suspense. So people do watch this movie in theater

Finally i would say WELL DONE RANGITARANGA TEAM. you seems promising for Kannada film industry.
