Sinnga (Kannada) Movie Review: Loud Roar, Less Might
The film is a routine commercial entertainer, meant for the masses
With the song Shaane Topagavle scored by music director turning out to be a huge hit, there was enough reason for Sinnga to encash on the popularity. And given its ‘mass entertainer’ tag, the film does not disappoint those who love an action-packed storyline with lots of emotions thrown in.
Stopping just short of being melodramatic, Singga works mainly because of the action, and the dignified acting of Tara and Chiranjeevi Sarja.
Inspired by Tamil film Kutti Pulli, the film tells the story of Sinnga (Chiranjeevi Sarja), who does not think twice before ending lives! While his mother (Tara) wants him to marry and settle down, Sinnga knows too well that he is not made for it. Well, at least until he meets Geetha (Aditi Prabhudeva). Enter Ravishankar as Rudraswamy (Ravishankar), the hero finds his villain. The rest of the film is about the violence that is being unleashed.
Cast: Chiranjeevi Sarja, Aditi Prabhudeva, Tara and Ravi Shankar
Director: Vijay Kiran
So, Sinnga is not a smart action movie, but, just a routine commercial entertainer for the masses. Many may find it tiresome with an overdose of unrealistic stunts, inconsistent narration, and unrelated songs.
While Chiranjeevi Sarja's performance stands out, Tara delivers a natural performance as the mother. Ravishankar gets the usual character and he performs in his trademark style.
Overall, Sinnga might work commercially, but it does keep pandering to a section of the audience.
