Disco Movie Review
Cast: Nikhil Siddharth and Sara Sharma
Director: Hari K. Chanduri
Hari Chanduri, the director of Disco, is a former associate of Puri Jagannadh. He has worked with the ace filmmaker on 10 movies. But looks like Hari has not learnt the lessons right, as Disco fails to make any impression.
Chanduri has apparently missed out to focus on a crucial thing called script, as a result of which the audience is forced to suffer. From the beginning till the end, nowhere the film makes ann attempt to capture our attention. The only place where Chanduri proves that he is a student of Puri is when scenes from Bangkok appear on screen. In the favourite location of his mentor, he has shot some sequences, which are pleasant.
Also, he takes parody on Puri's The Businessman, through the character played by M S Narayana, the sole funny element of Disco, which provides some solace to the viewers.
Coming to the story, Disco (Nikhil Siddharth) is an orphan, but a happy-go-lucky guy. His weird name is courtesy the flickering lights of the hospital where he was born. He has three good friends with whom he always hangs out with.
One fine day, he meets Shiney (Sara Sharma) and falls for her at first sight. As the story proceeds, the pair leaves for Thailand where Shiney actually has her home to bail out one of the friends. Then, disco faces twists and turns in the form of a don (Ashish Vidhyarthi). How and Why? Watch the film and find out.
Nikhil Siddharth tries his best in an unimpressive script. There sure is improvement in his acting compared to his previous flops. Sara Sharma fits in her role, but at times looks expressionless. M S Narayana and Ashish Vidhyarthi deliver what is expected out of them. The veterans do a good job.
Music and other departments are routine and have nothing much to talk about. However, when the story is bad, all other departments cannot really make an impression. Chanduri completely fails at narration. Random spoofs and comedy scenes are thrown in the first half that do not make much sense. The film gives a big relief when it ends and when we walk out of the cinema hall.
Watch it if you have nothing better to do this weekend.
