This is one of the films that has created a lot of buzz in Sandalwood. It is the film produced by three intelligent producers who are known for making successful films in Sandalwood. Many fun-loving cine-goers had high expectations on this film but it utterly failed to live up to their expectations.
It is about an idiotic and scheming politician Nograj S (Danish Sait) who represents ward no. 199 in the civic body. Nograj indulges in cheap and unconvincing gimmicks to become popular among the voters.
He even overtakes the incumbent MLA and becomes candidate in the Assembly elections.
Meanwhile, Arun Patil (Roger Narayan), a non-resident Indian businessman decides to contest in the election as an Independent candidate. Afraid of Patil’s popularity among the youth, Nograj plays dirty tricks to defame Patil. He wins the election and graduates to MLA from corporator.
As far as the performance of the artistes is concerned, Danish Sait, who earned many fans as a radio jockey, fails to realise the difference between radio and cinema. Though his dialogues have the potential to make you to giggle for a while, his performance is not up to the expectations.
Some of the scenes, especially in the scene where Sait meets Power Star Puneeth Rajkumar and his interaction with him, look absurd. We have to appreciate Puneeth Rajkumar’s generosity to appear in such scenes and cope with such irrelevant and nauseating dialogues. This particular scene, where Nograj (Sait) asks his assistant who Puneeth Rajkumar is? Does Power Star mean the power of Puneeth Rajkumar’s house? will not go well with Puneeth Rajkumar’s fans.
Shruthi Hariharan has no opportunity to prove her acting skills. She has a few dialogues and appears in two to three scenes. Roger Narayan and Vijay Chendoor provided good support.
Sricharan Pakala, Jeet Singh, DJ Jasmeet and Prajwal Pai have worked on the music department and Problem Song has struck a chord with music lovers.
It is worth watching if you want to see Danish Sait on the screen and have the ability to cope with the pre-interval session that really tests your patience.
