young hero, nikhil has been promoting his new movie, kiraak party, quite aggressively in recent days. the college drama has finally hit the screens today. let’s see how it is.
krishna (nikhil) is a happy and lucky engineering student who spends a mischievous life together with his group of friends. he falls in love with his eldest meera (simran) and when everything seems to be going well, a tragic incident changes krishna’s life. The rest of the story is how Krishna manages to solve all his problems and comes out as a successful student and a sincere human being.
kiraak party is nikhil’s one man show. It’s Nikhil’s emotional performance that clicks the movie. Nikhil is shown in two different shades and the young hero impresses in the two avatars of him. the way he transforms from a simple guy to a strong student leader is pretty cool. Nikhil is very good, especially in the last fifteen minutes of the film, where he shows various emotions.
The first half of the movie has some decent college fun with good songs that keep things light even though there isn’t much of a story. the last 20 minutes of the movie are quite emotional and end quite well.
the heroine simran does a decent job in her role. the college setup, student rivalry, and the regular fun each college has is shown in a decent way.
One of the biggest drawbacks of the movie is that it doesn’t have a strong plot. the conflict point shown does not elevate the process much. the hero suffers a great setback because of the heroine and this changes his life. there should be some strong scenes between the main couple to show the aforementioned pain that the hero suffers in the second half.
The first half hour of the second half is pretty bland and doesn’t have any interesting episodes. the second heroine, samyuka hegde, looks weak and a better heroine should have made things much better for the audience.
The bond between the friends should have been shown in an even stronger way. the comedy quotient that is a must for college movies is slightly lacking in this film.
ak entertainment’s production values are quite good as the college backdrop has been richly showcased. the camera work is also quite good as the youthful images are quite easy on the eyes. the dialogues are decent and the music too. the background score was also decent, but the editing should have been a bit better since the movie is quite long in its running time.
referring to the director sharan kopishetty, he has done a decent job with the film. although he doesn’t create any exciting comedy or great romance between the main couple, he does present the film on a decent and passable note. even though he fails to set things up in the first half, he picks it up during the last half hour, as the scenes featuring the making of the hero end the movie on a good note.
Overall, Kirrak Party is a teen college drama that has some good moments in the second half. Nikhil leads from the front with his brilliant performance and saves the movie entirely. this film is clearly aimed at young people and they need to connect with all the various happenings of college life that are well shown. if you ignore the sub-par story and lack of comedy, this movie ends like a decent watch this weekend. just keep your expectations in check.
