"Mythri” a bilingual movie which released in kannada and Malayalam. Other than a realistic story the main positive fact of this movie is the togetherness of Malayalam Super star Mohanlal and Kannada power star Puneeth Rajkumar.
"Mythri" is a social drama written and directed by "Jatta" Giriraj. The movie has an interesting story that is based on the real-life incidents that Giriraj came across. The movie revolves around the story of a yongster, who recalls his lost childhood and the characters that he comes across in his life.
Puneeth Rajkumar has played the protagonist in "Mythri." Viewers say it is not a regular Puneeth film and it hardly has any of his punch dialogues, dance and fight sequences. The film features a different Puneeth. Mohanlal, "Aa Dinagalu" fame Archana, Bhavana, Atul Kulkarni and Ravi Kale have played important roles in the movie, which has Ilaiyaraaja's music and Krishna Kumar's camera work.
It is for the first time Puneeth Rajkumar is seen as an actor in a movie. The actor play his own character, Powerstar Puneeth Rajkumar, hosting the show Karunada Kotiyadipathi. Mohanlal is at his best in his character, he plays a DRDO engineer/scientist in the movie. Mohanlal and Veda Sastry's pairing up as a couple is feast for the viewers. Atul Kulkarni is playing a Police Officer, whose acting melts heart of the audience. The characters Johnson who play Siddu's friend at prison needs an appreciation. Ravi Kale is good at portraying a corrupted politician in Mythri. Bhavana and Sadhu Kokila has a small onscreen space, which can be said as a cameo role.
‘music Guru Ilaiyaraaja has composed pleasant and chartbursting music album which has served as an essential component for the script of Mythri. 'Chandranenu Chanda' song in Kailash Kher's voice very heart-touching.
Mythri is a full package. It has good cinematography and very well written screenplay. The movie gets a ‘thumbs up' for its technical aspects.
A stellar star cast, comprising Mohanlal, Puneeth and Atul share screen space for the first time. Add to that music by maestro Ilaiyaraaja, and you have a heady combination. The treatment of the film and the story itself is very realistic. A must watch movie with the whole family.
