No matter what, some always keep searching for shortcuts to become ‘stars’ overnight. However, as long as real talents arise only through hard work with complete honesty, any such attempts results in unbearable shocks.
Bhale Jodi is one such shortcut – first pick the rights of a hit movie, then find a beautiful actress who is fair in her acting, also cast two more pretty actress for that additional publicity, and then manage to get it directed by a versatile maker. Not to forget the most popular villain and also copy the title of an evergreen classic. With the ready-mix ready for an instant hit, something goes awfully wrong. The lead actor, for which the movie is purposefully made, is caught napping when it comes to showcase his acting abilities, forcing the audience to take a power-nap.
For those who only love making remake movies, this can be another best example on how not to make a hit movie a boring venture while remaking it. While searching for the only few things apart from Sumalatha portraying as mother, it is the presence of Shanvi, Hariprriya, and Ravishankar who pulls it back from making it easily one of the worst experiences so far for the year.
Again, for those who have not watched the original - Ala Modalaindi, the protagonist (Sumanth) is kidnapped while he is on his way to prevent a wedding. The audience would only wish the character was shown released at the climax. The curious kidnapper (Ravishankar) asks about his love story and in return he gets it in bonus – three affairs. And now the story moves ahead even as the eyes watching it start closing automatically. However the brave experience to stay awake reveals that the subject revolves around whether the protagonist finally gets his true love.
Unlike similar attempts, the huge lacuna here is the fun with no ‘real’ interests in the twists and turns. It is nothing short of a joke which evokes any laughter. All it does is to provoke to laugh at the jokes itself. Flat narration coupled with extra ‘ordinary’ acting, is another reason to simply skip this one. Better pick the video of Dr Rajkumar starrer Bhale Jodi released in 1970, and enjoy one of the top class acting.
