'Bangari' Review: This Kannada film is a tedious watch

A romantic cocktail actors Yogish and Ragini play the lead role in the movie.

Ragini, with her appearance in romantic songs had in a way, reinforced her glamorous image.

Both the lead artists and the film's director had high hopes from the project.

Alas, within a few minutes of the screening, 'Bangari' makes the audience scratch their head. It would be difficult to find some symmetry in the way the film moves on as sequence after sequence ends without an impact.

Even the comedy sequences in the film involving Sadhu Kokila fails to provide any relief.

The film is about 'Bangari', a poor boy who is extremly affectionate towards his mother.

Also, he is in love with Paddu, the daughter of a rich and cruel don Somashekhar, who has a standing rivalry with Dharmanna.

Dharmanna cautions Bangari to keep away from Paddu, but Paddu is a bold girl who says she would go to any extent to have a relationship with Bangari.

Meanwhile, Bangari is beaten by Paddu's relatives. Both Bangari and Paddu face several hurdles and are threatened over many times to be harmed if they continue.

The main reason for this film's steep fall can be attributed to the shabby work of the director and scriptwriter M AChandru, who proves to be totally inexperienced. He seems to not even be aware of the elementary details of filmmaking.

Also, Yogish has done his job and gives his best in action sequences, but it is one more addition to the list of his disappointing films.

This award winning actor needs to make amendments to the choice of films he does.

Also, two songs by Neel are well composed, but Niranjan Babu's camera work is ordinary.

Overall, one can say 'Bangari' is a disappointing film.
