This is a remake of Tamil super hit film ‘Myna’. The trials and
tribulations of pure and perfect lovers is narrated in the tragic end
with hear touching elements throughout the film.
Shyloo (Bhama) and her mother get the care from Manja (Ganesh) for 12
years. Manja does every service for Shyloo and they are very pure at
heart. Manja sacrifice is one of the best parts of the film. It is
because of Manja, Shyloo get good education.
As Shyloo reaches puberty her mother look for a good match and she wants
to discard Manja. When Manja disagree with this attitude of Shyloo
mother on a complaint he is put behind the bars for one month.
One day to clear his term, Manja escape to meet Shyloo. It is the time
of Shyloo engagement and bride are expected to the house of Shyloo.
Manja escape from the prison is a big headache for Jailor Bhasker
(Suchindra Prasad) and constable Ramaiah (Rangayana Raghu).
They go in search of Manja and when they reach the place Shyloo and
Manja run away. After cops find Manja the jailor handcuff Manja with
Ramaiah so that he does not escape. Shyloo looking at this hell decide
to go behind Manja.
Now the biggest problem is the route for the police station. The
foursome surpasses many hurdles on the way to the police station and
from there to prison. The Jail Superintendent fixes a deadline for
Bhasker and on the other hand both Bhasker and Ramaiah supposed to visit
their houses for Deepavali. It is a first Deepavali for jailor Bhasker
and his wife is furious at home.
After a lot of struggle all the four – Manja, Shyloo, Bhasker and
Ramaich reach a bus to travel to the right destination. The bus they are
traveling meets with a deadly accident. At this point of time the
humanity is given high prominence. At the cliffhanger stage Manja saves
both Ramaiah and Bhasker.
The whole scenario changes to humanity now. So far yelling at Manja, he
is regarded high for his service. All is not good when Ramaih takes
Manja to prison and Bhasker takes Shyloo to his house.
It is a hell at the end for the mistaken identity. Bhasker on knowing
the tragedy of Manja and Shyloo for the fury of his wife goes on a
This is an excellent film because of various elements clubbing in one
film. Firstly director S Narayan should be given the full credit for
making right choices of artists, locations and technicians.
Of course the original story writer gets credit but the screenplay
differs to some extent in this Kannada version and it is better in fact.
The exotic locations gives a feast to eyes, the story of the foursome in
the film melts down any stony heart, lively moments in the film gives
double the worth of your money. In the painful journey of foursome the
audience would enjoy a lot for circumstantial complications.
More than Ganesh and Shyloo it is Rangayana Raghu role that gets
attraction. The brilliant part of this film is the humble love – that is
extremely pure. It is a tender love, it is affection to the hilt and
for such a person the steps taken by the hero is very right the audience
As the story moves to the exteriors of jungle and hilly region the
pleasant feel comes before the eyes and after the accident the rule of
the universe that ‘Humanity’ is very important in life achieves a
distinct spot. Suddenly the fury and disturbed minds taking toll makes
you to collect tears in the eyes and removes your handkerchief.
Director S Narayan is specialist in Kannada in handling this type of
subject. Although it is a remake in Kannada bringing out results is very
important. S Narayan has won in every shot of the film.
Of course the screaming at the hut is extreme but again it is the height
of anger of the protagonist. The context that appears makes everyone to
With no makeup in more than fifty percent of the film and shooting in
the Munnar region of Kerala the film ‘Shyloo’ gets a major boost. The
splendid long shots and climbing the places for the foursome in the film
has helped in giving natural performances.
The costly mistake we do in life identifying wrong things and giving
anger to work – the consequences of it is very well explained.
Suchindra Prasad going on killing rampage for saving his life by Manja
and finally settling down in his own prison is the height of situation
For the director of Cheluvina Chittara S Narayan this type of film has
become easy. S Narayan had given almost similar type of role for his son
Golden star Ganesh is excellent. Bhama is brilliant. Rangayana Raghu
overshadows everyone. Suchindra Prasad best performance so far.
Ganesh has rightly understood the value of the film first and done a
career best performance. Ganesh performances when he knows Shyloo is
arranged for a match, when Shyloo leg is struck with a nail, when Shyloo
reaches puberty and when Shyloo is dead before his eyes – the actor in
Golden star Ganesh comes up.
Bhama has given her best in performance. Her showing of affection to
Ganesh is very natural. In the dream song and title song she looks very
Anything said about this gigantic actor Rangayana Raghu is less. He is a
master of his craft. The histrionics, dialogue delivery, caring his
wife over telephone and inconvenient situations Rangayana Raghu has
handled brilliantly. Had this ‘Shyloo’ not a remake he would have got
award at the Karnataka state level.
Suchindra Prasad from stage like Rangayana Raghu looks reserved in his
roles has spread his ability very well. The dialogue delivery is the
best part of this actor.
Sureschandra in his natural performance lives up to the expectations.
Changing his voice and remaining cruel in his role Sureschandra has set a
benchmark for his acting potentiality.
The anger in the wife role of Suchindra Prasad has come out well. The
mother of Shyloo roaring is in excess. The two child actors are also
very apt in this film.
Cinematography by Jagadish Wali is superb. The placement of camera,
capturing the wide hilly regions of Munnar and the shots particularly in
the O Jeevave….the mist filled ones are real treat to the eyes.
Jagadish Wali has romanced with his camera with natural locations.
There are to lilting tunes from Jassie Gift – Shyloo title song is
haunting, O Jeevave is pretty good. Puneeth Rajakumar sung song
featuring Pankaj Narayan inside the bus is not well placed.
Jolly Bastin stunt in the bus accident is chilling. The editing for this ‘Shyloo’ is top class.
This is worth watching. It shakes your hearts and those who are very sentimental – carry handkerchief without fail.
Last but not the Least – Hang your anger! Live in love and affection!
