Namaste Madam (2014) Kannada Movie Review
|Namaste Madam (2014) Kannada Movie Review|
Direction: R Raghuraj
Duration: 2 hours 19 minutes
Director R Raghuraj's remake of popular Telugu movie Missamma comes with a desi touch. With a good script topped with lively narration, the director spins the story of an ailing chairperson of a Bangalore-based company finding a replacement for herself. The protagonist comes to Bangalore from Mumbai and selects a married MBA graduate already working in the company to step into her shoes. What keeps you glued in is a quirky process that follows.
Heart patient Radhika (Ragini), chairperson of RG Group of Companies, is on the lookout for someone who can replace her at work. During one of her visits to the Bangalore office, Radhika notices Nanda Gopala (Srinagara Kitty), an accountant with an MBA degree, and decides to put him through the wringer. She throws some challenges his way, promising him a promotion if he performs well. But one test in particular puts Nanda Gopala on the spot. Radhika wants Nanda, who is already married to Rukmini (Nikesha Patel), to marry her. As expected, this leads to a rift between Rukmini and Nanda Gopala. Though Nanda tries to convince Rukmini that it's all part of a bigger plan, she refuses to believe it. The story takes a curious twist when Nanda Gopala and Rukmini get to know of the real intentions behind the tests.
Srinagara Kitty perfectly blends into the role envisaged for him. A bold and beautiful Ragini is quite impressive. Nikesha essays her sober yet powerful role of a homemaker with aplomb. As a cinematographer, Santhosh Rai Pathaje scores well. Sridhar V Sambhram's music makes for perfect melody.
