‘Breaking News’ is nothing but Arjun (Ajay Rao) youngster in the
television channel ‘Sakala’ to get scoop news to stay ahead with the
rival channels. This is what his boss wants by hook or crook. When the
Loka Ayuktha Somasekhar (Ananthnag) release the copies of his findings
on Du Companies and other details on the de-notification that does not
become news for the channel when everyone is telecasting the same. To
get a scoop or exclusive you have to catch the special interview of Lok
Ayuktha says the boss to Arjun.
Accordingly he does but he falls to the prank of Shraddha (Radhika
Pandit) daughter of Lok Ayuktha Somasekhar. Next it is yelling in the
office for Arjun. He is sent out of the job. In his search for a scoop
he finds a secret of kidnap of Lok Ayuktha daughter Shraddha. He takes
advantage of this and he intervenes in the kidnap and takes Shraddha to
his custody in a room of his friend.
Nowthe scoop starts rolling from Arjun only in Sakala TV. It is only
because of Shraddha a Karate expert and up to date girl interest to stay
away from his parents that further helps Arjun to continue his scoop
story only in his channel. He knows this is a compulsion but inevitable
for him. On the day of award for Arjun for his scoop news about Lok
Ayuktha daughter Shraddha also comes in disguise. By this time it is
Whether Arjun receive the honor? What happens to Shraddha thereafter? That is the end part of the film.
‘Breaking News’ is not engaging or entertaining because all the developments are easily at the guess of the audience.
In the days of OB van and latest gadgets given to journalists of
television channel the sharpness of Arjun is not captured. When Arjun
arrives at the house of Lok Ayuktha chief from the gate itself the
journalists of today will be alert. It was possible for Arjun to be on
toes to get the news somehow from the entrance. He finds a few minutes
of scuffle between a powerful person (Rangayana Radhu) and Lok Ayuktha
chief at his entry. He should have captured this episode. Even that is a
scoop. Director Nagathihalli Chandrasekhar is not aware of such things
For the heck of giving exclusives in the channel the danger that happens
is explained. It also points to planted things via exclusives.
In an effort to give actual meaning of ‘Breaking News’ or to explain so
and so only makes ‘Breaking News’ director Nagathihalli Chandrasekhar
changes his route of kidnap, love and finally the action scene that
looks so below average and not to the standard of Nagathihalli
In an effort to give ‘Breaking News’ the captivating narration was
expected from director Nagathihalli Chandrasekhar but there is nothing
of that sort.
The liveliness of Radhika Pandit and her approach to the role is
tremendous. That is the only lovable aspect in the film. Most of the
things what director has brought in are the reports of newspapers and
television channels. In that case how does it catch the attention? This
is the first question director should have put it to his head.
It is bookish like he used to pick from the text books to teach his
students in the past. Variation and grips is what required to the
present day audience to keep them glued to the seats. This is what
Nagathihalli Chandrasekhar forgets. No one expect such grips and
captivating elements to miss from his head because he has given edge of
the seat thriller like ‘Baa Nalle Madhuchandrake’.
The only appreciable supporting character introduced that has
determination is Lok Ayuktha Somasekhar played by Ananthnag. He is a
versatile actor. Any given role he does so precisely. He resembles the
Lok Ayuktha former chief Santosh Hegde in the film.
When Arjun is caught while buying in the department store he shivers.
This was not required when the police cross examine him. He is a
journalist and confidence portrayal of the scene was required very much.
It is a best suited cinema for talented and beautiful Radhika Pandit.
Her prank, her fooling Ajay Rao in his own custody and liveliness,
performance in songs and dance are very high in standards of this
Ajay Rao has remained loyal to the role. He is a director actor. He has
not used any of his senses it seems. Rangayana Raghu as corrupt
resembles Khatta Subramania Naidu and his son Swayamvara Chandru
resemble junior Khatta.
Ananthnag is the best choice for the Lok Ayuktha chief. It is an apt
role of cook for Sihikahi Chandru because he is well known in ‘Bombat
Bojana’ television programs. A number of supporting artists just come
and go in this film are OK.
AV Krishnakumar is a well known cinematographer. There is no doubt about
it. How come at a few places the shots blur for a few second and later
Stephen Prayog has made ‘Prayog’ of same raga for two songs. Sura
Sundari…a cat walk song and Sambanda Saniha…are almost the same tunes.
Both are melodious is the consolation.
There are a few scenes that could have been chopped and explained in the dialogues.
Last but not the Least – Broke in ideas cannot make ‘Breaking News’!
