3. Second Half
1. First Half
2. Sluggish Narration
We have previously seen several college backdrop films like Happy Days, Kerintha etc. Then, how different is Kirrak Party from those movies? It’s definitely not a different film until interval. However, it’s a different movie in second half. Like regular college backdrop films, in Kirrak Party as well we will get to see clashes between juniors and seniors. Nonetheless, story focuses mainly on Nikhil who likes his senior Simran. The girl’s outing with Nikhil in the night to save a pregnant woman and Nikhil taking the girl out to introduce her the meaning of happiness are hard-hitting points in first half. In second half, Nikhil is seen in a rebel kind role. Things are routine until Samyuktha Hegde takes Nikhil to Simran’s house where he meets her parents. The pre-climax episode of fare well party is enthralling.
Nikhil Siddharth has shown variations in his character. While he looked like a chocolate boy in first half as a junior student, he looked handsome in second half as senior with grown beard and mustaches. We can see difference in his attitude, body language as well. He was exceptionally good in emotive episodes. Simran Parinja is a normal looking girl who portrayed her role decently. The other girl Samyuktha Hegde who played junior student in the college is also normal looking but is a fine performer. Brahmaji was funny as car garage owner. All the artists who played Nikhil’s friends were cool.
As we all know, Kirrak Party is remake of Kannada hit Kirik Party. While Sudheer Varma penned screenplay to elevate Nikhil in few key scenes, Chandoo Mondeti wrote dialogues. Director Sharan Koppisetty didn’t make many changes in the plot. And his direction is not up to the mark. Music provided by Ajaneesh Loknath was refreshing. While sound tracks were youthful, background music was also fascinating. Cinematography by Advaitha Gurumurthy is vibrant. Editor MR Varma should have chopped few scenes in both the halves to give an engaging experience for audience. Production values of AK Entertainments are just average.
Kirrak Party is not a wholesome entertainer like Happy Days. However, this movie has some pleasing elements here and there. The movie may take advantage of holidays to educational institutions.
