Multi-talented filmmaker Prakash Raj, who plays almost all the roles in the process of movie making is successful with his latest offering Oggarane, the remake of Malayalam hit Salt And Pepper. The multi-lingual actor has shot the film simultaneously, in Kannada, Tamil and Telugu, which is getting released at a time as Oggarane, Un Samayal Arayil and Ulavacharu Biriyani respectively. Oggarane is all about the story of a middle aged unmarried archaeologist Kalidasa (Prakash Raj), who is a foodie. He likes old things and his only companion is his cook Babu (Achyuth Kumar). His nephew Naveen (Tejus) comes to his place in search of a job. Kalidasa's boring life comes to a twist when he receives a wrong call from Gowri (Sneha), a spinster, who is a dubbing artist, and lives as a paying guest. What happens next the storyline of the movie. Prakash Raj has a tailor-made role in the film. He effortlessly emotes the pain and the solitude of an unmarried man. Beside Prakash, Sneha also steals the show. Young talents like Tejas and Samyuktha Hornad have done a wonderful job in their respective roles. Achyuth Kumar, who is not a new artist to play supporting role in Prakash Raj's film is impressive as an innocent companion for an unmarried boss. Other actors in the supporting roles like Urvashi, Mandya Ramesh, Thambi Ramaiah, Vidyullekha Raman, Elango Kumaravel will whip up some real fresh cream with thick sugar syrup. In the technical front, camera work by newbie Preetha is the major highlight of Oggarane. Her cinematography has surely added to the fluid texture of the film. Music maestro Ilayaraja's music will never disappoints the audience. Soothing background score and melodious tracks will give warmth feeling to our heart. Verdict Prakash Raj is the winner as an actor, director and producer. After Naanu Nanna Kanasu, here is another movie for Kannada audience to get bowled over by a multi-talented filmmaker. The film has its shortcomings, but it will never disappoint the audience. It is a must watch film.
