Senseless and Baseless
23 January 2018 | by vajramunimSee all my reviews

The film may have been made solely for the purpose of pulling in college grads and nostalgia as its only selling point. Too much liberty is taken with the script, and it comes off more as a childish fantasy of college life. It also relies heavily on music (not soundtrack) to create some effect. Quick cuts between multiple angles create a false impression of pace.

Acting performances are sound and subtle, unlike other mass Kannada films. The lack of substance means the actors don't have any ground on which to deliver any memorable performance. Cinematography is neat, and nothing special in that department either. Art and Production Design is decent.

Its key selling points are nostalgia, soundtrack and peppy music. It is hard for films to break new grounds in this era, after 100 years of cinema. That is understandable, but 'Kirik Party' barely touches upon many key themes prevalent in its chosen premise. Some promising young filmmakers of Sandalwood continue to take the wrong route of mediocre writing. All style and no substance.

But, hey! At least its not made of soul sickening superstar self references.
