Rakshit Shetty, Ulidavaru Kandante, 2014

London Indian Film Festival: Ulidavaru Kandante

13 Jul 2014

This dazzling epic manages to cram in homages to Sin City, Pulp Fiction, Agneepath, Scarface, Shankar Nag, Rashomon and a host of other tributes while telling an utterly compelling and original story.

In this kinetic suspense thriller that deals with five interconnected stories, a journalist sets out to uncover the truth behind an incident from the past, through the perspectives of different people, and how they and their lives are intertwined with it. Along the way she encounters gangsters, fisherwomen, precocious children, tiger dancers, motor mechanics and a wide array of other colourful characters that help together in piecing together what happened one fateful night years ago. Rakshit Shetty, the star of blockbuster hit Simple Agi Ondh Love Story, makes his directorial debut with this film and also puts in a swaggering central performance where he faces off against the other rising Kannada star Kishore.
