It is not just attractive but lavish making in the Hollywood style gather good attention. Hats off to trio Rakshit Shetty, Pushkar Mallikarjunaiah and HK Prakash for investing on it!
Avane Sriman Narayana has many folds in it with Rakshit Shetty and 7 Odds team making it a grand film in screenplay to close the year 2019. The KGF effect in production values is also found watching this film.
Sachin Ravi as director and editor has perverted intelligence. What you expect is given in mammoth style and making. Of course the film is lengthy with 186 minutes but the clubbing of a regular treasure hunt subject with ancient tales – especially ‘Samudra Mathana’ – the team of Rakshit Shetty shown lot of responsibilities they have transformed.
The film ASN is funny, serious, action filled, revenge saga etc. The film travels in four parts – from the point of view Tukarama, Jairama, Sriman Narayana and Lakshmi! All are on the look of the huge loot that a drama company had placed.
The cinematic style has come to the use of director Sachin Ravi. There are so many things that you should not look from the point of view of logic. This is cinema!
In the last15 years the throne of Abhira (played by Madhusoodhan) is not occupied. It is the promise from Jairama (Balaji Manohar) that he would sit on the thrown only after finding the treasure. Jairama even dethrone his brother Tukarama (Pramod Shetty). The two gangs are at fierce mood. In such a situation Narayana (Rakshit Shetty) arrives on the scene as a cop. There is Lakshmi (Shanvi Srivatsa) who is behind saving the drama troupe.
All the four hunting for the treasurer is not aware of where it is? How it is traced, whether the revenge of Jairama and Tukarama ends, whether Lakshmi joins Narayana…you have to watch it on silver screen.
Coming to the massive contributions – technical team strikes first from this film! Throughout the film one color is maintained and this is what gives the feel of watching Hollywood films.
Karam Chawla would gather a few awards for his cinematography, Imran Sardariya steps for a few songs is a boon to the film, duo music directors Ajanish Lokanath and Charan Raj have given best outputs. Already two songs are rocking in the music chart.
Rakshit Shetty has maintained different temperament effortlessly for the film. He is not like regular action heroes. The climax fight with Balaji Manohar is chilling. The lively and jolly moment what Rakshit Shetty carried forward from his ‘Kirik Party’ is of course to please his fans.
Shanvi Srivatsa has a different film at the end of year 2019. It is not regular romancing hero. She has understood the role very well and proved her mettle. She gives a shock at the interval point.
At least watching this film let the Kannada cinema industry give opportunity for Balaji Manohar. Instead of Sood’s we have a man with abundant talents like Balaji Manohar, Pramod Shetty to shake the heroes.
There is novelty in presentation. Production values are superb, effort is magnificent. Yet the film needs scissors for the first half of the film.
