Movie : Ranna
Rewieved by Madhukar KR
Release Date : 4-6-2015
Ranna is a 2015 Indian Kannada language drama film directed by Nanda Kishore. The principal cast includes Sudeep, Rachita Ram, Haripriya and Madhoo. It is a remake of Pawan Kalyan’s 2013 Telugu blockbuster film, Attarintiki Daredi.
In a way the storyline of Attarintiki Daredi itself has resemble with two other Kannada films Ganesh’s Aramane and Ravichandran’s Preethsod Thappa.
The film falls under the family drama genre. The story revolves around a family where a father(Prakash Rai) and daughter (Madhoo) have split and go their own way when she marries her beloved (Devaraj) against the wishes of her father.
Sudeep who is the son of Madhoo’s brother and grandson of Prakash Rai promises to bring back his aunt to reunite the father and daughter.
How does Sudeep achieve this feat forms the entire storyline.
Sudeep has a lot of scope for showcasing stylyzed performance highlighting his stardom and heroism in the film. There are many such scenes including the intro and the climax portions. The film ends with a full blown emotional scene between Sudeep and Madhoo with mature performances from Sudeep and Madhoo.
Rachita Ram looks pretty in the song sequences but does not have much scope for acting.
The film boasts of a very good ensemble cast including Devaraj, Madhoo, Prakash Raj and comedians Sadhu Kokila and the upcoming Chikkanna. Chikkanna has played a very good character and his mannerisms and funny lines will tickle your funny bones. Sadhu Kokila amuses the audiences in the 300 Hollywood movie spoof.
The camera work and background score is exemplary. Portions of the film has been shot in Zurich, Europe. The title song is extremely hummable with extra ordinarily shot song sequence. seereli and titli song are good.
Some portions of the film like the Swamiji spoof by Sudeep with Sadhu and Chikkanna are over stretched and seem unnecessary for the plot. the overall length of the film could have been a bit shorter.
Overall the film is extremely watchable with entire family. The film has stressed over family values with the title cards showing family photos of the cast and crew. The film’s bloopers are fun to watch towards the end. We give a pick for this Sudeep flick which was one of the most expected film of 2015.
