This is a popular story told in several languages. In Telugu it was
Allari Naresh who starred in ‘Blade Babji’ in 2008 and now in 2012 May
Srinagara Kitty plays the similar role.
It is about Krishna Manohar (Srinagar Kitty) and three of his friend’s
effort to set the colony they reside free from hassles. Last twenty
years the landlord is planning to evacuate the poor people. Krishna
Manohar and his friends Dilip, Anand and Nivedhitha decide to somehow
make Rs.5 crores and set the colony free.
With a big task to complete in six months they try all out measures and
finally land up with the idea to loot a bank in Mangalore. They
transport the money to Bengaluru but they are forced to hide the money
in one place for some time. The same place turns out to be police
control room when they return. It is hectic time for Krishna Manohar and
his friends. They decide to kidnap a Sub Inspector prepare fake
documents to get inside the police control room. Kiladi Kitty comes as
Krishna Manohar new SI.
In the new mission they succeed and the target of Krishna Manohar Sub
inspector is to search the location where Rs.5 crore is hidden. Krishna
Manohar earns the good name in the department and also gets promotion.
He hatches a plot of fake bomb in the Police Control room that make way
for his friends to make a thorough search the place identified by
Krishna Manohar. It turns out be a bag full of sand. The friends are
lost again. They trace that the building contractor is the right person
to find. Their findings yield results but Rs.5 crore goes missing.
Building contractor has kept Rs.5 crores in his coat and he is not in
the habit of changing it. Once he goes for a bath and his wife sell the
old coat that is stinking to a road side vessel seller. The coat goes
missing and finally the money lands in the suitcase that is identical in
the house of cops who work in Police control room.
When the truth is revealed and money is secured the team of Krishna
Manohar come to the colony to give the money. The police also chase this
gang and several complications lead to a happy ending as land owner
happily gives away the land.
The subject is stale to the Kannada audience firstly. Secondly several
films with this thread have come and gone in the last four years.
Interesting in this ‘Kiladi Kitty’ is the humanity aspect of various
characters. At the climax the land lord giving away the locality to the
poor people and looted money landing at safe hands happens. But what is
the punishment for the youths indulged in bank robbery the director
fails to include in the film. That sets a wrong trend.
There is liveliness in the main characters and dialogues are well
written, the timing of the shots from the artists are also good. The
missing of coat with crores of rupees keeps audience to check out where
it will land. Such hide and seek are new to the audiences.
Robbing the bank with five crores of rupees is firstly not so easy.
Secondly the hunt for robbers of Rs.5 crores does not happen in the
film. The developments that follow relate to the characters, love affair
and police doing some other investigations etc.
Why at one point of the film the serious effort to the looted amount is
not made? Using the situations and stitching it according to the whims
and fancies of the director is not the correct one. Not making hunt by
police is serious lapse.
The first half is lengthy and not much of developments come across. The
second half leads to various implications and complications plus
At least half an hour of the film could have been reduced to make it
crisp and not to bore the audiences. Director Ananthnaraju has got the
good proceedings from the artists and handled a lengthy film but he is
not crisp and sharp.
Is it possible to keep Rs.5 crores of rupees in a coat with Rs.1000
bundles? Those who touch it won’t get a sensation is not agreeable.
‘Kiladi Kitty’ is like giving an expiry date tablet to patients. A
thorough rewriting of the script is required when it is remade. It has
not happened from Sangam Films.
Kitty is quite impressive. He is not able to deliver the dialogue with
openness. Haripriya is the most charming beauty to watch again and again
on silver screen. In two songs she is so beautiful in looks. It is a
wasted effort from Nivedhitha.
Rangayana Raghu in both the releases of this week has piquant situations
to handle. He is effortless in both the films. Anand, Sharan and Dilip
Raj are extremely good in their portions. Sathyajith, Mukyamantri
Chandru are apt choice. So is Kuri Pratap.
Ravikumar Sana in his first commercial film has given good treat to the eyes. In the outdoor shoot he is so good.
The music director Jassie Gift likes more noise. He does not allow the
lyrics to fall to the ears. The balancing is not done. What is the
purpose of writing lyrics for the songs? What he has done in ‘Sanju Weds
Geetha’ is not found here means there is no exercise of control on this
Editing of the film is quick and makes the fast movement of the developments.
Last but not the Least – Morality and humanity is greater than money!
