Director of a quite a few movies in Kannada Preetham Gubbi and his team have definitely put hard work in to this film. The debutant producer Manjunath and debut hero Prithvi have given great support. Grandson of melody king of Kannada cinema GK Venkatesh Prithvi is here to stay in the race of good looking heroes. He has perfect height, weight but should know acting in coming films.

‘Nanu Mathu Varalakshmi’ has the familiar theme of reuniting the elders. This time a stranger does it. Of course his lover is attached to this tale.

Munna (Prithvi) on the way to fix Varalakshmi for his friend (Ashok) a long time lover himself falls in love with her. It is ‘Mithra Droha’ to the eyes but when the friend accepts the defeat the love journey of life.

How to get his lover with affluence of Varalakshmi, brother and mother as barricade is the question now. Varamalakshmi brother throws a challenge to Munna that he would accept him as brother in law only when he wins the toughest Chenagappa trophy of dirt track race. Varalakshmi mother encourage Munna for this win. So the hero Munna goes to Madikeri surroundings to get a mentor for his race of love and profession.

You find Chengappa (Prakash Rai) a tough man to convince. The whole night Munna stands in the rain to prove his determination. To his shock he finds Varalakshmi in the house of Chengappa. It is the broken relationship of Chengappa and his wife Madhubala. Occasionally daughter Varalakshmi comes to stay with her father Chengappa.

After giving nod to train Munna, the secret of love is maintained. Just before the international race begins Munna ask for a promise from Chengappa. At the dirt track race Varalakshmi disclose to her father on her love to Munna. As expected Munna wins international race in first position while Varalakshmi brother gets second position.

It is not ‘Guru Kanike’, it is Shishya getting a grand approval from Guru. What is that? You have to watch it on silver screen.

In dance, action and looks six feet Prithvi is superb. In dialogue delivery and emotions he is very weak. Prakash Rai is grand as usual, Madhubala has lost charisma, Pavithra Lokesh, Achyuthkumar couple support to son is adorable. Sadhu Kokila as trainer is OK.

There are two good songs from V Harikrishna in this film NMV. The cinematography of Preetha capturing dirt race is superb visual treat.

Score – 4/5 ***
