Neenasam Sathish, who is basking in the success of psychological thriller Lucia, is back with Anjada Gandu. The actor has kick-started the year with the romantic movie. It is the remake of Tamil hit Manam Kothi Paravai, which had Sivakarthikeyan and Aathmiya in the lead role.

Though the title of the film will reminds us the early movie of Crazy Star Ravichandran and Khushboo's Anjada Gandu, it is totally a different film with a refreshing tale. As his previous movie Kirtataka, director Pradeep Raj has set Anjadu Gandu in rural backdrop (Mandya). It deals with the love story of a village guy Santhu (Neensam Sathish). The film starts with a flashback, which is narrated by Santhu.

Story
Santhu will be assisting his father in the construction work. He falls in love with his neighbour Geetha (Subhiksha), whose father and uncles are the dreaded goons in the village. Though it will not be a two way love story, Santhu will be successful in proving the same to his friends. Situation will get worse, when Geetha's marriage will be arranged with an influential man. Santhu's friends, who believes the story to be true, will kidnap Geetha from the wedding hall. Continue reading the review on slides...

Crux Of The Story

What happens next? Will Geetha's family take revenge on Santhu and the movie ends in a sad note? This forms the crux of the story, which should be enjoyed on silver screen.

Neenasam Sathish

No one can match Sathish's village accent. Neenasam Sathish, who had already caught the attention of the moviegoers as a typical village guy even before Lucia, is mind blowing in his acting.

Subhiksha

Malayali beauty Subhiksha is making her Sandalwood debut with Anjada Gandu. She has performed her role as an innocent village girl beautifully.

Comedy

Comedy can be considered as the main highlight of the movie. It keeps the audience engaged, whenever the story goes in the slow pace. Comedians Chikkanna and Raju Taalikote is rocking in their body language and comedy timing.

Lyrics

Anjada Gandu is simply rocking in its amazing dialogues. As the movie is set in the rural backdrop, it is filled with many Kannada proverbs and other sayings.

Direction

Director Pradeep Raj is successful by making the remake movie to suit the mind set of Kannada audience. He has extensively shot the movie in Madikeri and Mandya districts, which is a feast for your eyes.

Verdict

Neenasam Sathish is the winner. It is a must watch movie for the audience, who had enjoyed Sathish's role as a village guy in Lifeu Ishtene and Drama. Slow pace in the second half and unnecessary duet songs are the minute drawbacks. The movie is one time watchable.
