Divangatha Manjunathana Geleyaru Movie Review: Good Story But Weak Screenplay
Divangatha Manjunathana Geleyaru is a drama film starring Rudra Prayag, Sheetal Pandya in pivotal roles. The film is now running in theatres.
Manjunath, an engineering dropout based in a village is found murdered with his corpse hanging on the tree, making it look like a suicide. After crosschecking from the victims, it is found out that he runs a CCTV business and is involved in IPL betting. After questioning the witnesses, they find his hall ticket in his college bag stating that he had to write an exam on the day after he was murdered. They later discover that there is more than what meets the eye.
After finding a different name called Srinivasulu on the hall ticket, they find him working as a laborer for a paint company, he has been taken as a suspect by the same cop who has been given transfer orders because of his poor performance and vows to catch the culprits in 48 hours despite an intelligent officer interfering his case. Slowly, many others connected to the victim are arrested and their stories ravel out about their lives after college and what all they have undergone ranging from joblessness, gold-digging girlfriends, and distraught families. It is then revealed that these men happen to be friends with the victim and they had owed him a lot of debt to him and then there was an attempt to kill him first time before he was eventually killed.
The film could've been made crisper with a good screenplay and removing unnecessary moments which will be a little exhaustive for the audience to watch. There are some laughs which will bring delight to the audience throughout the film. There are some moments which are unintentionally funny but it will be pretty good too.
Overall, the film is an entertainer to get your boring weekend awesome and you might come out with some laughs after the film ends.
