As Seen by the Rest

Malpe, a small fishing town on the Arabian Coast. Located 6 kms to the west of the temple town, Udupi. Malpe's beaches are washed clean everyday by the sea. The waves ensure that nothing gets left behind on the sands. But then, the waves cannot reach everything. It is the time of the year when Udupi and its surroundings are decked up to celebrate Sri Krishna Janmaashtami. Men and children walk the streets dressed up as characters from mythology. Teams painted as tigers are seen dancing to drum beats all around the town. But violence seems to be brewing in Malpe this Krishna Janmaashtami.

    Inspired by both west and east, from Tarantino, Scarface and Sin City to Kurosawa Ulidavaru Kandanthe is still close to the culture and people of Karnataka. One of the best attempts at such a filmmaking in India. Breaking stereotypes of an actor and make a haunting hero out of him is not an easy task. Rakshit Shetty shows his genius at filmmaking with all the right components. The supposed Rashomon effect in this film was the only bit that seemed to be forced and the bit of contemplative monologue at the end which is supposed to be a part of an article!!

    Brilliantly told story. Loved the way the movie told us the story from point of view of different characters. Rakshit Shetty is brilliant and shows he is the future of Kannada film industry. Beautifully shot, this movie is a great watch.

    Ulidavaru Kandante (Kannada)- Interesting and an impressive narrative. Technically chic too. Now ready for Richie #MustWatch

    Solid. Looking forward to Thugs of Malgudi. Hope they release it in Bombay with English subtitles, I'd go first day first show then without looking at its trailer. I got to know of the movie via Jaby Koay's YT channel.
