Shivani – Lacks strength
Posted by harino1 on March 9, 2008
What are the qualities of a good commercial cinema? The director of this film Vishalraj has partially understood. In putting the things in right order he is not careful. He has made his screenplay look confused one on screen. He has taken good acting from artists and technical works too. But disorder in screenplay and missing links bothers the viewers.
The flash back technique he has deployed in the beginning of the cinema is the main disturbance. He does not come back to the original position from where he started.
Vijay is a darling of everyone in the colony. From leaving Shivani to the school he does all the petty work of his people in the colony. He is good at heart and on the insistence of his friends gives a place to Shivani who is very close and affectionate to him. But Shivani parents look for a different match. That happens to be freak and the life of Shivani is in doldrums after engagement. On the other the life of Vijay brother is in danger as he is attacked by the rival gang. Vijay helps his brother at the right time despite of disliking him for his rowdy activities. Around this time Vijay friends alert the elders of the secret love of Vijay to Shivani. That makes the way clear for Vijay who later becomes darling of Shivani.
Suraj is promising in his debut. He has to improve in his emotions and when he comes close to camera should be more alert. Shivani has the right role in her debut Kannada film. In close up shots she does not look beautiful. Avinash, Thulasi, Jogi Nagaraj and Dharma have lent good support.
Matte Matte Ninna nenapene sung by Sonu Nigam for Kaviraj lyrics, Kaddu Nodala… Muddu Madala…sung by Karthik for Harish Shringa lyrics are the melodious tunes of this film from James j Sakleshpur. There has been excellent cinematography especially for the songs that is done by James William.
First attempt of Vishalraj is partly tolerable.
