Octopus - kannada film

Too many areas touched to make end failure

Kishore, Yagna Shetty,
Tilak, Ashwini
Yashwanth is a doctor and
scientist, whose aim is to
find an affordable cure for
heart patients. What
happens when he makes
the breakthrough, but
ends up meeting the
pharmaceutical mafia?
Annaiah P's story, on
paper, has all it takes to
make for that winning
thriller. Sadly, there's
much lost in the
translation from paper to
film and he also ends up
giving in a little too much
to the demands of
commercial cinema. With
the Sandalwood audience
accepting both the
commercial and the
alternate with equal
measure, one wonders
when makers will stop
with unnecessary comedy
tracks with double
entendres and raunchy
item numbers.
Had the makers kept to
just the protagonists fight
against the
pharmaceutical and real
estate mafia and
concentrated on
establishing a few more
facts there in greater
detail than giving screen
time to these unnecessary
elements, the viewers
would have perhaps had a
taut thriller to watch.
What stands out in the
film are the performances.
Kishore is top notch as the
vengeful sincere doctor.
Yagna and Ashwini have
limited roles and fit their
parts. Tilak, as the tough
investigating officer, is
convincing and stands out
from his negative roles.
Sharath Lohithashwa is
menacing as always.
One only wishes there was
better writing to suit
these performances. This
could have been a nice
medical thriller, but the
trivial treatment makes it
fall way short of the finish
