Power Star Puneeth Rajkumar is here with what all his fans would call a powerful performance. This, a remake of Telugu movie Dookudu. As Bharat Kumar IPS, Puneeth has displayed his acting, dancing and action skills altogether in this movie. He doesn't disappoint. Trisha is like a breath of fresh air onscreen, her costumes and makeup are just right.
The plot, though a little confusing keeps you entertained. The story oscialltes between Mumbai and Bangalore where police officer Bharat Kumar is the ONE man gift to the Police Department who has the power to put a full stop the notorious criminals Guru Talwar, Babloo and the king pin Nayak. Kelly Dorjee has shone as Don Nayak. Wish the movie was a little shorter though because I lost a few threads of the story here and there. In a parallel thread Bharat is doing everything in his control to keep together a well hidden family secret and fabricates a make believe world to keep his father alive. This time around it's the father-son bond that is milked.
Rest of the story revolves around how he takes revenge on the baddies who took on his father, goes on a trip to Spain, manages to fall in love with his superior's daughter and wipes crime and criminals off the city. Phew, that's a lot of work!
Rangayana Raghu and Sadhu Kokila as always tickle the funny bone. Comedy is one thing you should watch the movie for. Action scenes are good and so is Puneeth's dance. He should insure his knees.
Dr. Rajkumar's mentions never die, just reinforcing how important he is to the Sandalwood industry. Prabhu's acting is worth a mention.
Take your family along and enjoy the show!
