Even as Sandalwood’s gold (Golden Star Ganesh) started losing his sheen, he makes a comeback with a rib-tickling remake of a Telugu hit, Bhale Bhale Magadivoy. A classic plot of absent mindedness paving way for a laughter riot is the basic essence of Sundaranga Jaana.
Despite the only weakness that it is a remake, the director has turned it into an enjoyable two odd hours for those who just want to forget their worries and are craving for a pure classic comedy, minus vulgarity and excessive double entendres.
For those, who are unaware of the original, it’s a simple story which later gets entangled within the characters and the plot lightens with bundles of comic confusions. Lucky portrayed by Ganesh is unluckily short of memory. He is a ‘Ghajini’ of a different sort with a whole new makeover. He seeks no revenge but love and as he does so, one can only laugh at his memory.
A slight diversion, and Lucky tends to completely forget what he actually goes on to do in the first place. He accidentally meets the pretty girl Nandana played by Shanvi Srivastava, and he loses himself in her love.
Further, Devaraj who portrays the girl’s father makes it very for tough for Lucky to reach his ‘lovely’ destination. While the innocent Nandana is smitten by the absent minded lucky she is unaware of his weakness. With the right proportion of comedy, romance and a pinch of emotion Sundaranga Jaana is a perfect mix for a hilarious journey.
It’s a tailor made character for Ganesh, and Shanvi excels with yet another honest portrayal of an innocent girl and her beautiful smile makes you fall in love and envy Lucky for two hours. Credit goes to Ramesh Arvind for this clean entertainer. Watch Lucky’s unlucky escapades which comes with guaranteed laughs. And yes, Sadhu Kokila, Ravishankar and Rangayana Raghu are the choco chips on a tasty ice cream....
