Film: “Uda”; Cast: Yuvaraj, Sanchitha, Nisha Shetty, Swathi, Padma Vasanthi, Muni, Harish Raj, Sathyajith, Killer Venkatesh and others; Director: Shashank Raj; Producer: Akbar Pasha; Music Director: Bharani Shree; Camera: R. Nageshwara Rao; Rating: *
“Uda” is an absolute disaster from the beginning. None of the new artists has been able to perform. Only Nageshwara Rao and Bharani Sree are the two pillars of the film.

Shashank Raj, who claims to have worked with a brilliant director like Ravichandran in many films, has failed to tune the script.

“Uda” proves that Shashank Raj has not learnt any lessons from the failure of his debut film. There is no justification to the title. There is no logic in any of the sequences including songs. And the so called comedy scenes will make you angry.

It’s a pity that such directors are able to convince producers to invest money in their projects.

The hero of the film is a mad and has been misused by three villains. Though the hero is mad, he is strong enough to defeat his enemies.

The hero lost his mental balance when his beloved dumped him. After a sequence of events, he is united with his girlfriend who also lost her mental balance.

Then there is a flashback that shows the secret behind their “mad avatars”.

All the new artists fail to perform. Seasoned actors like Muni, Harish Rai, Sathyajith and Killer Venkatesh are just passable.

Camera and music departments have done nothing to write home about.
