Movie Review: Aramane

Yesterday, I was in a general happy mood, so I thought I will see a kannada movie and become happier. Started watching Aramane. First half was really good. I loved the way the story built up coupled with nice acting by Ganesh. But, as soon as I started enjoying the movie, it took a U turn and became ultimately depressing. I wonder what sadistic pleasure movie makes derive out of making happy people sad. I had to go and watch Iron Man again today to get back to my happy state with all the "good will win" pumped back into my brains.

Maybe if the movie was badly directed, I would not have cared about the depressing second half. But, it has good direction, acting, screenplay and casting, which will force you to connect to the characters and finally it ends up as heap of depressing non-sense(Gurukiran's music has hit new lows. It sucks big time).
update on June 13: Starting to like it :)

To undo a little bit of the depression.. Here is what the scene after credits roll should be..


Rating: 2/5
Walk out after the first half...

Update on June 13: This comment from Purnateja is worth making the main post :)
you forgot these lines:
after watching the movie the viewers sing this song--
"ಕೊಲ್ಲೇ ನನ್ನನ್ನೇ.... ಕಡು ಕಪ್ಪು ಕಣ್ಣಲ್ಲೆ ಕೊಲ್ಲು, ಬಿಗಿದಪ್ಪಿ ______(fill it up thy self)______ ಕೊಲ್ಲು,
ಹೇಗಾದರು ನನ್ನ ಕೊಲ್ಲು, ಆದರೆ ದಯವಿಟ್ಟು ಈ ರೀತಿ ಕೆಟ್ಟ ಸಿನೆಮಾ ತೋರ್ಸಿ ಕೊಲ್ಲದಿರು!
