Manjunath: Hardhitting

 
Manjunath: Hardhitting

Claps for: Taking a new comer in the lead role for a daring film.


Slaps for: The oddly placed links into the characters' personality.


Popcorn refill: Some


The Story: Manjunath is inspired from the real story of Manjunath Shanmugam, the brave heart who was killed for exposing the oil mafia in UP. The plot shows him trying to make a difference while unflinchingly fighting odds alone. Manjunath, an IIM graduate is working with an oil company as the sales officer. He takes it upon himself to expose the petrol pumps resorting to mixing diesel with oil for profits. This does not go down with the corrupt and he has to pay a heavy price.


Performances: Divya Dutta, Seema Biswas, Yashpal Sharma, are all excellent in their individual parts. Sasho Satish Saarthi as Manjunath is fairly decent in his part although his accent keeps wavering. Anjori Alagh and Faisal Rashid are both good and convincing.


On a Musical Note: The soundtrack of the film is fairly average. With not too many songs it is fit for the film.


Combo on Offer: Manjunath comes with an extremely eerie message of honesty being dangerous. Although evil does get punished the haunting feeling does not leave you. The documentary style narrative keeps jumping to past incidents in spite of being told by dead Manjunath. The dry style of narration can seem caustic. The cinematography successfully creates a sense of disturbance whenever required. Debutant Sasho's shaky accent sometimes is slightly irksome. But that doesn't really affect the movie or the plot. The low production value is imminent in the look and feel of the film though the character looks are bang on. Overall Manjunath is a decent watch.


Our Verdict: We give Manjunath Claps for a different take in portraying a cause.
