For the past few months, all sorts of tigers (movies titled after Tiger) have literally threatened to attack the ‘minds’ of the audience who dared to watch them in the first place. However, after watching this wild saga - Tiger Galli, they were far better ones who at least spared the lives in the end. Even the Puttagowri character from the popular Kannada TV soap ‘Puttagowri Maduve’, who has amazing skills of miraculously escaping death including her recent wild trip to the deep jungle and returning alive after encountering the snake and a ferocious tiger may find it hard to survive this wild escapade.

 

Here, everything is wild and loud. There is no escape once one dares to enter this wild corner!  The Tiger Galli’s story, screenplay and dialogue writer seems to have literally churned this wildest tale after seeking the intervention of supreme powers who are in-charge of torture. So, it also automatically qualifies to break into the top ten ‘most torturous full-length feature films’ position in Kannada ever.

The director claims that his ‘tiger tale’ is inspired by an infamous dead-end corner right in the heart of Bengaluru, marred with anti-social elements during the 80s when Bengaluru underworld was in its prime focus. However, the 80s timeline in this film has already imported smartphones, swanky bikes, cars and much more from the present time. Even if these cinematic mistakes amongst tonnes of other elements are to be completely neglected, the wild imagination of the makers portraying a chief minister, police officials, a judge in such illogical and senseless manner is too hard to digest.

 

Though it is a challenging task to describe the gist of this tale after barely surviving all that the attacks, if one can dare to do so then it simply revolves around the protagonist Vishnu and his mother, living a normal happy near the infamous wild corner area, which director says is referred to as Tiger Galli these days. A rubber stamp chief minister controlled by his own son while backing an evil rowdy to run all his scams is the introduction from where the brain starts to crack and what follows till the end is an unexplainable and unbearable pain.

 

Almost every character is greatly influenced by dialogue king Saikumar’s mannerism and none speaks low. Even the latest speakers at the cinemas if were to feel the pain would have had enough emitting sounds at such high decibel. The love interest Vishnu does not speaks but always moans, a mother who always screams her lungs out including all others test the limits of human's ear-drums. This can be a reel fun watch if screened in in countries where the use of marijuana is legal. Strictly not for those whose mental health is their main priority.
