Bad script, poor direction mar ‘Baa Bega Chandamama’ (Kannada Film Review)October 13th, 2008 - 8:52 pm ICT by IANS
Film: “Baa Bega Chandamama”; Cast: Deepak, Suhasini, Avinash, Bullet Prakash and others; Producer: Kumara Swamy; Director: H.G. Murali; Rating: * “Baa Bega Chandamama” is an illogical film which lacks excitement in narration. Director H.G. Murali, who worked as a dubbing artiste in Kannada films, takes up too many responsibilities on his shoulder including composer and lyricist. Perhaps this has not given him ample time to scrutinise the strengths and weaknesses of the script.
The result is that the film suffers from uninspiring narration which spells boredom for the audience from start to finish.
Prince Deepak, usually seen in gangster based action films, plays a romantic role in the film. He has fails to deliver. However, newcomer Suhasini adds some life to her role.
The story lacks freshness and too many loopholes in the screenplay makes it a tedious watch.
Deepu (Deepak) and his friend make a living out of stealing bikes. But Deepu has a heart of gold and is always helpful. Deepu moves into the house of Poonachcha with a fake identity to steal Rs.20 million. But instead he falls for Preeti (Suhasini), the daughter of Poonachcha. And how this love survives under odd circumstances forms the rest of the story.
Barring one twist in the whole story, there is nothing to hold the interest of the audience. Deepak looks too tired in the role. Avinash and Bullet Prakash have done the same roles umpteenth time.
The only solace is that “Baa Bega Chandamama” is free of violence and sex which have become a permanent feature in most of Kannada films.
