Director: Sukesh Nayak
Cast: Sanchari Vijay, Meghashree, Kuri Pratap, Ramesh Bhat, Suchendra Prasad, Padmaja Rao
After previous week's silent experience which failed to make the right noise, Sandalwood witnesses a ‘visually challenged’ saga. One may believe that love is blind, but the visual focus here in the case of Krishna Tulasi is actually about two blinds, who fall in love but in a cinematic fashion.
Sukesh Nayak, who makes his debut as a director, has certainly done a decent job with an effective making of this romantic drama with a handful of characters. However, the negative is picturing of blind characters. They are yet again shown in the typical format when it comes to their physical behaviour on the big screen.
In reality, a person who is visually impaired is never the same as they are usually portrayed in feature films. Such blind acts always give an impression as if the characters are mentally disturbed too. Apart from one such blind spot, the film runs smooth with an intelligent character who is blind - Krishna. A mama’s boy, he lands in Mysuru from his home town Madikeri to pursue his passion as a guide in a public department.
Soon, Krishna meets someone who shares a similar passion and the friendship travels on a daily basis as co-passengers in a city bus. The first half is all about sweet talks, anecdotes, and exchange of gifts. For those who love Mysuru city, this film will bring a big smile on their face. It even has a lovely song about Mysuru.
As the drama unfolds, there is a blind twist just before the interval. Thereafter, everything revolves around the predictable love affair until it hits the climax.
Simple plot and neat performances makes it a good watch. Though not a masterpiece, the audience will definitely not curse the makers or complain about wasting their time watching it in first place.
Insofar as performances are concerned, Sanchari Vijay lives up to his usual expectation, but it is Meghashree who makes a mark with this one. Have some free time? Then Krishna Tulasi can make you fall in ‘blind’ love.
