Kotigobba 2

Sudeep and Nitya make it right

Sudeep, Nithya Menen, P

Film synopsis: Shiva is a
master conman, Robin
Hood-like in his approach.
There's also Sathya, an
innocent, honest real
estate agent. They look
alike, but are two different
people. Are they really
twins or is that an act?
Film review: Kotigobba 2
comes with a lot of
expectations. Firstly, it has
allusions to late Dr
evergreen it Kotigobba. It
also marks the debut of
noted Tamil filmmaker KS
Ravikumar in Kannada and
featurses Sudeep, who has
been on a roll at the box
office. And fortunately, this
film entertains and lives
up to the expectations,
albeit the film does seem
a tad long at times,
especially in the second
Ravikumar has reinvented
one of the most successful
tropes of commercial
cinema, especially in South
Indian cinema, and played
it to Sudeep's strengths.
This film is reminiscent of
films like Shankar's
Gentleman, though it does
manage to surprise the
viewers with innovations
and some clever writing.
The film makes no bones
of being the typical
commercial entertainer,
replete with multiple
comedy tracks, romance,
action and songs, with a
soppy father-son
sentiment track as a
bonus. What is amazing is
that this concoction is just
right, giving fans of old-
fashioned masala
entertainers just what
they require.
One of the best things
about the film is the
casting, Sudeep fits like a
glove when it comes to
the lead character. He has
the swagger that is
necessary and he charms
the audience as both
Sathya and Shiva. Nithya
Menen's capabilities as a
performer are known, and
she manages to add some
pizzazz to what would
have otherwise been a
typical cutesy heroine role.
P Ravi Shankar is the other
stand out actor in the film
and his role is different
from his usual loud, OTT
characters and he makes
full use of it.
The movie scores high on
the technical front with
click action,
cinematography, editing
and background score. D
Imman's tunes are catchy
too. This film is a treat for
people who like to be
entertained in with the
traditional commercial
masala fare, for Kotigobba
2 has ample spaces where
fans can hoot and whistle.
