‘Ishta’ is the saga of one side love in the beginning, two side love in
the middle and three side love by the end of the film.
Naadha a college student falls to the roughness of Krishna. The director
fails to give strong reason for love. Naadha seeing Krishna and her
mother separation intends to patch the relationship. Why Krishna is
disliked by his mother. When he was young Krishna chops off his father
who was raping a girl in front of his mother and his sister looking in
their home. This is the extent of crudity the first time director
thinks. Hats off to the director!
So Krishna is imprisoned for 14 years for killing his father. When he
returns he wants to live with his mother and sister. Krishna mother now a
flower seller in front of the temple kicks her son straight on the
chest in front of public. Krishna finds it impossible to live with his
mother. This is what the female protagonist Naadha observes.
As if no job to do Nadha goes behind the mechanic Krishna and before
interval it is love from the one side. After interval Krishna also loves
Nadha. There is an intruder to this love Raviteja who is relative of
Nadha. Raviteja knowing that Nadha is in love with Krishna hatches a
plot to kill Krishna. That is not so easy. Krishna faces fresh charges
this time and he is taken to custody.
Even before Krishna returns the crooked Ravi Teja kills the cop and his
wife – parents of Naadha. Applying more emotions on the brain of Naadha,
Raviteja marries her but the end is quite different.
Krishna is freed from charges and he knows the truth. He comes to save
Nadha from her maternal uncle but hell breaks out. When Raviteja
henchmen express the true colors – Nadha finds it difficult to live. She
kills herself and urges Krishna to put a rock on her face so that one
would judge who it is. This is something very crude part of the film.
This director RP Krishna should be sent to a training institute in
direction. The director should know the pulse of the viewers to at least
25 percent. The director miserably fails to meet the present scenario
with many inconsequential scenes quite often in the film.
There are something told in the dialogues comes in the visual
presentation. The very first scene of the film in the pitch dark the
hero lifts a small piece of rock and throws with heroine on ground.
Audiences are under the impression that he has smashed the heroine.
First of all the building of characters is not good. The camera angles
for the Bhumika and dubbing done is the major bottleneck. In the
character building of male protagonist it suddenly picks anger and songs
also appear suddenly for that character. A boy works in the bar is
forcibly made to drink the liquor as a punishment. With girl friend next
to him our hero opens the quarter bottle and gulps it. She watches it
in a serene look. With no proper earning there is enough stock of
quarter bottle in the pocket of our hero.
The other sundry characters do not add up to the film is another lapse
on the part of the director. The extent of telling things in crude style
should have been pleasant with a title like ‘Ishta’. ‘Ishta’ meaning
‘Like’ but there is hardly anything to like in this film. The portion
of mechanic hero and college heroine is nothing but of portions of
The novelty in narration could have saved this film from poor standards.
That has not happened at the pre and post interval. In the days of
advanced age a girl from up to date family (daughter of a cop) is
expected to make a right choice of her counterpart in life.
Director RP Krishna is not convincing even in the songs. One of the
shots in the song shows the hung costume that is obviously the next
costume of the hero.
Had the care taken the film would have been fair. The crude style of
this director is not for the Kannada standards.
Santosh is tolerable in his role but it should have been toned down at
places. Bhumika is short in height and her dubbing has been the major
flaw. Ravi Teja as tormentor is misfit. Srikanth Heblikar as cop is
Ninna Kannalli Nanna Kannittu…..Naa Papi Lokadalli Nayakanu…..and Nee
Ishtane….are OK from music director Indrani Chabria.
Mahadev in his camera work is less than average. There are several
scenes that shake and disturb the vision.
Last but not the Least – There are enough measures to save money!
