Basavaraja Kattimani (V Ravichadran) is given doctorate for his services
to the society by a University. On the honor of doctorate day in an
inebriated mood his rival Sadashiva (Srinivasa Prabhu) pooh-pooh him.
Basavaraj Kattimani is asked to obtain at least first year PUC
certificate in his life. As a result of this challenge affluent
Basavaraja Kattimani joins the college he has built. His son Abhay
(Soorya) is studying in higher class in the college but Basu comes for I
year PUC. More than learning for Basu it is teaching the humanity of
life and non academic things to his younger students.
In the process of his attending to classes he falls in love with Sarala
(Daisy Boppana) and this is mistook by his own son Abhay. In fact Abhay
is loved by Chandini (Harshika Poonacha). Post interval is an issue
that Basu joined the college with a fake marks card of SSLC. It is not
the work of Basu but his secretary Harihara (Ninasam Ashwath). Basu is
so innocent and knowing that he is facing the stage of debar from the
college he decides to move out. He in fact loses the challenge but had
done the major repair to the younger generation in the college campus
for a better society.
It is a bad choice of selection of subject from well known director
Kavitha Lankesh. There is no stuff in the subject. For the image of V
Ravichandran and to the title of the film ‘Crazy Loka’ the lack of
craziness is the major fault of this film.
The poor standards of technicality – the dark shots most of the times
and no convincing screenplay and dialogues is not expected from director
like Kavitha. She had given much more intelligent and touching subjects
in her career. This is a major dip in her career. Look at Ravichandran
for accepting this kind of subject. It is a major lapse from him. We
have the classic example of Shahrukh Khan coming to college in ‘My Hoo
Na’. For V Ravichandran the makeup should have been good. The camera
angle for showing him on the screen should have used upgraded lenses.
Kavitha Lankesh being daughter of a teacher, journalist and well known
director P Lankesh approaching for a fake certificate for a silly
reason. Secondly with a fake marks card the film moves for more than two
hours is baseless. A alternative to fake marks card should have been
the thought of Kavitha Lankesh.
There are many uneducated persons in this society without even 10th
standard qualification. They have got honorary doctorates. When that is
the condition the challenge on the protagonist loses its relevance.
V Ravichandran the love master of Kannada cinema has not got the
punching and powerful dialogues or worth remembering situations when he
converses with the younger generation in the college campus. This is
another big area the director should have drawn a good screenplay to get
The father in the college campus knowing that his son has crossed his
limits he encourages it. This is a wrong signal to the youths again in
Avinash as principal and Bharathi Vishnuvardhana as her mother is not
convincing portion. It looks so weak and not lends anything new.
On the whole director Kavitha Lankesh has not used the right brilliance for a careful film to convince the audience.
This role is not fit for V Ravichandran. With tummy, hair style
disturbing him often and of course the poor technical support adds up
one more film in the career of the dream merchant of Kannada cinema. As
Ravichandran often says the director should know how to make use of him
the statement holds good to ‘Crazy Loka’. Director Kavitha Lankesh has
not tapped the talent in V Ravichandran.
Daisy Boppana has an average role in this film. Avinash and Bharathi
Vishnuvardhana are lively. Harshika and Soorya as young pair are
AC Mahendran is a good cameraman and Manikanth Khadri is a tolerable
music director. Then how come very poor results in both the department
works on silver screen. It must be the UFO problem and poor sound
recording system at Abhinay theatre where the media watched the first
show on Friday morning.
Ele Elege Chiguro Thavaka…is the best song in the film ‘Crazy Loka’.
There is not deftness in editing. The grandeur seen in V Ravichandran films is totally missing.
Last but not the Least – Creative heads should not compromise in giving a convincing film.
