Who Is Agasthya?

What role does Agasthya play in between the rival of two families? What is the background of Agashtya, forms the crux of the story.

Perfect Comeback For Both

The movie is the perfect comeback for both Srimurali and Haripriya. The duo has finally got a huge break in Sandalwood after many years.

Backdrop Of The Movie

The first half of Ugramm is mainly set in the backdrop of Kolar and Sira. To narrate Agasthya's background, the story will be taken to Mughor town, which will be the hometown for the rowdism.

Thrilling Background Score

Though the music (songs) is not very much impressive, music-composer Ravi Basrur is successful in scoring the thrilling background score for the film. It is perfectly mixed with the story and increases the movie's pace.

Amazing DOP

The camerawork is the main highlight of the film, which is done by Bollywood cinematographer Ravi Varman. The visualisations in the movie's trailer is the perfect example for his work.

Srimurali

Srimurali is the show stealer in the film with his spectacular performance in acting, actions, dialogue delivery, romance and stunts. He is back to form.

No Less Than Any Hollywood Movie

The backdrop and editing part of the movie will prove that Kannada filmmakers are no less than any Hollywood movie makers.

Haripriya

Haripriya is not a new face to Kannada audience, she is also a show stealer along with Murali as they share an amazing on-screen chemistry. Her role as an innocent girl is impressive.

Atul Kulkarni

Critically acclaimed actor Atul Kulkarni is also seen as an angry young man in the movie. He plays Avinash's son's role in the film. His role as son, who will be desiring to come to his father's place, is impressive.

Supporting Roles

Equal importance has been given to all the supporting characters in the film, which includes Thilak Shekar, Avinash, Jai Jagadeesh, Atul Kulkarni, Padmaja Rao, Manjunath Reddy and others.

Direction

The success of the movie should mainly be credited to director Prashanth Neel. Although he is newbie, he has used brilliant techniques in the film, which shows the creativity of young blood. Sandalwood has got another promising director.

Negative Aspects

Too much of violence in second half of the film may distance the family audience's turnout for the movie. Songs could have been avoided in few parts or it should have been given equal importance with the background score.

Verdict

Ugramm is the movie, which has finally reached the expectation level of the audience this year. No doubt Srimurali will get Stardom with this film. A must watch movie if you love Ram Gopal Varma's movies.
