Malgudi Days Kannada Movie Review
Prakruti is a young IT analyst who’s annoyed with her boss constantly making passes at her. Ageing author Lakshminarayana Malgudi, has just announced his retirement, and following his wife’s demise, his kids are pressuring him to move to America, to live with them. The two are at flight risk, and a chance meeting makes them embark on a road trip to Malgudi, together.
The fresh storyline and unconventional protagonists make this tale a refreshing experience. The lead characters, Vijay Raghavendra as Lakshminarayana Malgudi and Greeshma Shridhar as Prakruti, shine in their roles.
While the prosthetic makeup (for Vijay Raghavendra) playing the old man seems a bit inconsistent – the actor is consistent with his gait and mannerisms. Although, Vijay might look a tad bit built for the scenes showcasing his younger, school-going days, he pulls it off with his acting prowess. All the other supporting characters ably perform their roles too. And each role, regardless how minute, is given their due with well-etched out lines.

Witty one-liners, humourous exchanges and picturesque locales are huge plus points for this narrative. The storytelling draws you in, and has you rooting for the lead characters and their personal victories and struggles. Gagan Baderiya’s music blends well with the narrative.
Uday Leela’s cinematography, especially when it comes to shots of the rain or of greenery, is commendable. Director Kishor Moodbiri’s directorial debut is laud worthy and he shows promise, especially when it comes to his writing skills.
Too many supporting narratives, and song sequences add to the storyline, and at 154 minutes the movie does feel lengthy at times.
If you love films that take their time to draw you in and are a fan of nostalgia-inducing, emotional, rural narratives and childhood experiences like first love, antics at school, etc, this movie is the pick for you. Some hearty laughs and tear-jerkers are guaranteed.
