Title – Panchatantra, Producers – Hariprasad Jayanna and Hemanth Paraadkar, Direction – Yogaraj Bhat, Music – V Harikrishna, Cinematography – Sugnaan, Cast – Vihaan, Sonan Monteri, Rangayana Raghu, Kari Subbu, Akshara, Bala Rajavadi, Deepak Shetty and others.

Yogaraj Bhat is on a race this time. Instead of lengthy narration going on road is the best policy it seems. Here the second half the wheels of two race car talks and in the first half it is vociferous like the sound of wheels and cars in the second half.

With a wafer thin story line, Yogaraj Bhat has tucked the game is not that important but the race of life is very important. ‘Venu (Balarajawadi) passes away in the film just a few yards of reaching the goal. It is time for realization of every character in the film. Life is more important it strikes. ‘Venu Hoda Jagakka Nav Genu ashtu Doora ashte’ says Rangappa alias Rangayana Raghu. So far very strong and bold Karthik pushes the car of Rangappa and friends from his car to reach the goal.

What is life I say? Life is a Game I say, then play it I say – is heard in one of the songs sung by SPB. Yogaraj Bhat has given the hate filled first half between Rangappa and Karthik Team. Youths are making noise and yelling at the oldies Rangappa and team. Rangappa wants the youths to vacate the place but land belongs to Artha (Akshara) one of the gang members of Karthik garage.

So the endless war of words finally reaches a stage. The car race is the challenge between oldies and youths. Once a popular car driver Venu joins oldies team while Karathik himself drives his car to fetch five flags!

The preparations and race takes nearly 30 minutes in the second half. Karthik goes the hilly region to reach the spot to win the race. Finally there is something else. He wins his heart Sahitya in the process of competition coming to an end.

Vihan is very active and lively in his dialogue delivery. Rangayana Raghu is Talkathon. Sonal Monteri in one song Shrungarada honge mara…steals the show from her body language. Kari Subbu, Benne character, socialist in Rangappa team are good. The four boys in Karthik team behind the beautiful Artha have good timing in their roles.

V Harikrishna has given treat for Padde Hudugaru and melody lovers. Sugnan is best in his camera as the second half race is not that easy to capture. Yogaraj Bhat has adopted straight narration and the film is filled with ‘Dialogues’.

Panchatantra is power of life, humanity and existence.
