This is the story of wanderer dreaming about his love. The film is told
in the flash back technique of Paradeshi alias Mohan (Yogish) who is hit
badly in life by the underworld. The swollen face the hunch back is the
receipt of his opposition to underworld. Mohan is madly in love with
Neeli (Radhika Pandit) daughter of a music teacher Sridhar Shastry
(Ramesh Bhat) from an orthodox Brahmin family.
When Neeli proposes her love affair with her father he is shocked and
says he would die on the day of her marriage. Neeli gives prominence to
his father than accepting the love with Mohan. When Neeli father faces a
heart attack and needs Rs.2 lakhs for the open heart surgery, the heart
of Sridhar Shastry opens up and he agrees for the match of his
daughter. It is at this point of time Neeli father realizes the height
of love of Mohan to his daughter.
Now Neeli and Mohan are supposed to meet. The tragedy of underworld
strikes. Mohan brother in law Chandra (Adhi Lokesh) master mind the
attack on Mohan when Nimhans Soori (Rakesh Adiga) wants to take revenge.
Nimhans Soori has helped Chandra in three major deals. Chandra has to
accept the proposal of Soori in evaporating Mohan.
Mohan is hit badly and thrown on the highway. Neeli waiting at home
finally accepts to the proposal of her father. Mohan in pitiable
condition dreams of his love and lives forever. He is traced by Neeli
again in life but she is not able to give life to him. Mohan mother also
passes through her son but never recognizes.
All that does not end well in this ‘Alemari’ cinema! The mother and
lover not meet their fond person. Life moves on like a wanderer – the
actual meaning of ‘Alemari’.
In the very first film director Santhu in ‘Alemari’ has shown high
degree of skill. He has stitched the scenes well, made the story look
interesting, mixed with comedy, tragedy, music, love, revenge and other
elements. The only point that Santhu need to correct is in the length.
In the first half he has consumed too much of time to say a very few
things. In the second half he takes time further more. The film
‘Alemari’ chopped half an hour could be a better cinema.
Look at the title of ‘Alemeri’ – dream chaser in the caption clearly
mention that the wanderer not meet his dream. Director Santhu remained
loyal to the title. The viewers feel depressed when his own mother does
not recognize Mohan. A mother not able to trace that wanderer is her own
son is not acceptable. She offers solace to the dejected stage of the
wanderer but not identifying is not acceptable. Not even once she will
not visualize the guy before her eyes to her son.
Director Santhu might have done a good make up for the face, walking
style and hair style of Yogish. A mother is very sensitive character
in this world is what he should know.
In the dialogue department the film is a winner as Manju Mandavya has
carefully worded. He lives up to the expectations and the real stunner
of this film is cameraman Manjunatha Nayak. In the opening of the film
the camera placed to the moving lorry wheels shows the class in this
cameraman Manjunath Nayak.
One of the songs might be in wrong placement and others are according to
the expectations of discerning audience the music of Arjun Janya is the
high point. Three songs are terrific, melodious and lives long.
What are the news areas the new directors has looked at? There may not
be many but the skill of the director is good asset to the Kannada
In a pure love story the underworld nexus stops the family audience to
come to the theatre is what the director should have judged on the
This is the career best performance of Yogish. He really needs an award
because of his portrayal in the change of his outlook. His mannerisms
especially shaking the head, walking style is the growth of an actor in
Yogi. He has his quota of action, dance and less hair on the head and
slight beard he looks better.
It is a winning performance from Radhika Pandit. She is really the
‘Pandit’ in acting. Her looks, emoting capacity, liveliness would
definitely give the strongest placement for this actress of high
potentiality. Radhika Pandit from this film gives a stiff challenge to
her competitors. After Ramya she is the best today in Kannada cinema.
Nayana as friend Shruthi is very cool and renders good support. Rakesh
is difficult to digest as a underworld don. Adhi Lokesh has nothing
special. Mico Nagaraj as don with delectable dialogues wins the hearts.
Ramesh Bhat as father is superb again. Umasri is flawless in her role.
The cinematography, editing, art direction, music and stunts are top
class in ‘Alemari’. The first half of the film is a real musical treat
and second half the action scenes, rain effect and two more songs gives
good standing to this film.
Manjunath Nayak shows his struggle from every shot he brings it on
silver screen. Arjun Janya has given three best tunes out of five. Two
are for the front benchers. Neeli Neeli….is the best song of this
‘Alemari’, Thundi Bidi Kachikondu….is peppy and Ale Aleyo Alemari….theme
song of this film is haunting.
Last but not the Least – ‘Struggle and hard work’ should not be corrupted! That is ‘Alemari’!
