The infusion of fresh talent in Sandalwood continues and the latest is Prashanth Neel. The techie-turned-film-maker has not only created a platform for himself, but also given a new lease of stardom to his brother-in-law Srimurali. Ugramm is unlike the usual action movies we get to see in Sandalwood. The film is more like Quentin Tarantino making a film on Karnataka’s rowdy (suitably named gangsters) elements. The film is loud, brash, bloody and confident as a matter of choice. Though the three-figure deaths and violence are overpowering, the film has to be lauded for the director’s faith and conviction in his work. The film is technically brilliant, but what it lacks is a style to the excessive energy that is drummed up. The film could well be a tribute to Pulp Fiction. True to character, it starts with a graphic novel depicting the background story in brief. The film, too, tries to look like a graphic novel. This is spectacularly done by popular cinematographer Ravi Varman, who makes his debut in Kannada. What follows is an orgy of killing, juxtaposed scenes and a narrative that is always on an overdrive. It creates a pacy thriller, but the violence is not for everyone. Another killer is the background score. It boxes out the mood instead of hyping it up in many places. It is just too loud. Haripriya arrives in India only to be abducted by gangsters. Her father’s past catches up with her. But there is a saviour like none other. Enter Agastya, a mechanic who fights like he is a mix of Rambo and Rocky. While the locals become pulp, imported gangsters just run away, on seeing him. So you know there is a past. The past is the story of about a child (Agastya) who loses his father to crime but rather than take revenge he would let bygones be bygones. The thrill of the film is a fictitious district that is lorded over by a series of gangsters. When the moment comes, Agastya takes to the crime world, but it is not for revenge, but to establish his friend (Thilak as Bala) as the biggest gangster.
There are sub-plots as well. But the mistake here is not fleshing them out enough. The father-son relationship of Avinash and Atul Kulkarni would have made a wonderful story. It is too short and said in flashes to make the impact. The same happens with the gangsters of ‘Mughor’, the fictitious place. They are cardboard caricatures, instead of characters. They are all dipped in the same canvas. Despite the drawbacks, Ugramm is a new direction for action films in Kannada and should be lapped up by those who love action genre.
