Behind the Screens:

Young Hero Nikhil in his Second Innings has become a penchant for trying different stories. The audience is gifting him with back to back successes as a result. The actor is now attempting a remake with Kirrak Party which is releasing today. Let us see how the movie has fared with the audience.

Storyline:
Krishna (Nikhil) is a Mechanical Student of Usha Rama Engineering College. Like every ordinary student, Friends and Masti play a central role in his life. He falls in love instantly with Meera (Simran Pareenja). When things are going well, an unexpected twist happens to distance Meera from him. When he is living with Meera’s memories, Satya (Samyuktha Hegde) comes into his life. What happens next in Krishna’s life forms the rest of the story.

Star Shine:
Nikhil has improved a lot in the film. He used to mimic Ravi Teja previously but has brought in the much-needed change. He is good in the roles of Krishna and Krishnanna. The college days part reminded Happy Days. Simran Pareenja’s character is well-written and is fresh. Samyuktha Hegde came up with an energetic performance in the second half. She impressed with her own dubbing in her debut movie. Rakendu Mouli is impressive. So are the other guys in the Friends batch. Brahmaji is okay in whatever he is given.

Technical:
Director Sharan Kopishetty does a decent job in his debut film. The lag in the second half should have been taken care of. Even though there is not much of novelty, Chandoo Mondeti did a fine job with the dialogues. Sudheer Varma’s screenplay is not on expected lines but there is not much one can do with such a story. Loknath’s music is good. So are the songs. Advaith Gurumurthy’s camera work is fine and editing could have been better.

Analysis:
We have seen the story of Kirrak Party in many films in the past. It even reminds us of Premam which released recently. The film worked in Kannada may be they have not seen films like Happy Days, Premam, and Shiva. Simran Pareenja’s track in the first half reminds us of the Sai Pallavi track in Premam. The college track in the first half is okay but are not very appealing. The interval bang is good. The second half however, disappoints big time with too much of lag. Some of the scenes are very boring. The farewell scenes in the climax are good. The movie may appeal to college students.
