Strap in for a laughter-filled ride with Upadhyaksha, the latest offering in Kannada cinema that promises giggles and grins. This comedy flick, starring the hilarious Chikkanna in his debut lead role, is all set to tickle your funny bone!
Setting the Scene: The film opens in Gejje Pura village, where the vice-chairman of Chi. Thu Sangha, Narayana Gowda aka Upadhyaksha (Chikkanna), now reigns. He’s got big shoes to fill after the chairman’s exit, and boy, does he try!
Comedy Gold: Chikkanna, previously the sidekick in Adhyaksha, steps into the limelight and owns it! His natural comedic flair shines through every scene, making you laugh without even trying. There’s no forced heroism here; it’s all about Chikkanna doing what he does best – making us laugh.
Support Cast – The Laughter Brigade: The supporting cast, including Ravishankar, Sadhu Kokila, and Dharmanna Kadur, adds to the hilarity. Each character brings their own brand of comedy, making the film a collective giggle fest. Malaika Vasupal, the debutante, not only looks adorable but also brings a fresh charm to her role.
A Story of Laughs and Love: The plot is a classic comedy setup – a clash of egos in a village setting, with love thrown into the mix. Upadhyaksha finds himself in a pickle when he falls for the village leader’s daughter and elopes with her, leading to a series of laugh-out-loud moments.
Direction and Music: Anil Kumar TM’s direction keeps the film light and breezy, perfect for a comedy. The music, composed by Arjun Janya, complements the film’s fun vibe, making you tap your feet while you chuckle.
What Works and What Doesn’t: Upadhyaksha shines in its simplicity and Chikkanna’s effortless comedy. However, the film sometimes falls into the trap of cliched gags and could have done with a bit more originality in its humor. The parodies of popular films are a hit or miss, depending on your taste.
Final Thoughts: If you’re a fan of Chikkanna or loved Adhyaksha, then Upadhyaksha is a must-watch for you. It’s a simple, unpretentious comedy that delivers what it promises – a good time filled with laughter.
So, grab your popcorn and get ready to laugh out loud at your nearest theater with Upadhyaksha!
