DK Bose Review: A wasted effort
A focusless film saved by the performances of new faces
Despite borrowing its title from the Hindi lingo, which was popularised by Kya Kool Hai Hum and Delhi Belly, director Sandeep Mahatesh also tries the use of gamification in his script. And the end result is that DK Bose ends up in being a mishmash that loses its track and gives the wrong message.
The film is about two orphans, Bharath and Ram (Prithvi Ambar and Shobharaj Pavoor), who become friends and then con men. The two travel across cities and manage to pull-off major scams. But when in Mangaluru, they run into trouble and find themselves in a chase.
Director: Sandeep Mahatesh
Cast: Prithvi Ambar, Shobharaj Pavoor and Risha Nijagun
Meanwhile, Bharat’s eyes falls on Nisha (Risha Nijagun), which prevents him from escaping. Will they manage to find their way out and how they do so forms the crux of the story. Thanks to a few Tulu actors, Bhorjaraj Vamanjoor, Raghu Pandeshwar, Timappa Kulal, the film is rather entertaining. But otherwise, the cast is not worth mentioning. The film uses typical Mangalurean dialect which lends it some flavour.
With Dolvin Kolalgiri composing the background score, the highlight of the film is the romantic track which is sung by Sanjith Shetty.
Except for some new faces, who bring in whiff of fresh air, the overall product is not convincing and turns out to be a wasted effort.
