BANGALORE: It took a long time to complete this film. It was said that Pooja Gandhi was specially interested in the project.
‘Minugu’ was also to be the platform for the comeback of Sunil Rao, who has been hibernating in a way for two years.
However, director Jayavanth has not succeeded in making this film really praiseworthy. The main drawback of ‘Minugu’ is the weak and incongruous script. Some sequences, especially where a police inspector arrests the hero, have no justification.
Pooja Gandhi has acted well but in vain. Sunil Raoh has tried hard to do justice to his role.
The film revolves round Adithya alias Aadi (Sunil Raoh), who is a great fan of the heroine Sanchitha (Pooja Gandhi). The film tells us us that they were classmates but all we see Aadi do is participate in a bicycle race and paste Sanchitha’s photos wherever he finds space.
Well, then, as fate would have it, he meets Sanchitha at a shooting location. She asks him to meet her at a spot the next day, and, as a romantic film would have it, he falls in love with her.
Meanwhile, Siddartha (Ajith Hande), a prospective hero who acts with Sachitha in a film, enacts a drama and makes Aadi a scapegoat.
As expected, Sanchitha starts hating Aadi. It is for the audience to find out if the lovers meet in the end.
Gajendra G, the producer of this film, acts as a producer in the film also and criticises a director for not including the necessary ingredients to make that film interesting for the audience.
Ironically, he has failed to apply the same yardstick for his own film.
