THE BAR IS LOWERED!

S Shyam Prasad shyam.prasad1timesgroup.com

DIRECTOR--Mohan Shankar

ACTORS --Jaggesh,Reema Vohra,Tabala Nani,Srinivas Murthy,Karibasavaiah

RUN TIME

132 mint

A few hours after watching this movie,we were witness to a case in the High Court against the very film for being an advertisement for drinking and showing the advocate community in poor light.The judge,who eventually issued notices to the respondents,includingtheCensorBoard,inalighter note said,Are you saying that no advocate drinks Nobody needs encouragement to drink.They will drink,if you tell them or not.Bangalore has three wine shops on every street.But the producerofthisfilmwillbeveryhappyforthepublicity you will give him with this case.

Now ManjunathaBA,LLB,apaidremakeofthe Malayalam film Hallo (a Hollywood rip-off of Cellular),has Jaggesh playing an advocate who has resorted to heavy drinking.Yes,there is the goodenoughreasonofadeadloverduetowhich he hits the bottle and another good enough reason of a new girl in his life for him to quit.How much of a help the court case will be to the film is a matter of speculation,but after watching the film,it leaves us in no doubt that you will not recommend it to your friends.It is better to waste down a peg or two really.

The name Manjunatha was chosen to cash in onthesuccessofEddeluManjunatha,inwhichJaggesh played a lazy drunkard.In this film,he takes up the bottle again,but it is later revealed that he was a hot-shot advocate,but became a professional drinker after he loses his lover due to his familys scheming.Later,a girl in distress calls a random number for help and it turns out to be Manjunathas.The girl is trapped in an elaborate plotbysomeofherfamilymemberswhichhasendangered her life.Manjunatha quits drinking to helpherout.Butdespitethegoodplotinthisfilm,the execution was average in the first half and lethargic in the second.

Jaggesh saves bits of the film with his inimitable punchlines that are his trademark.A couple of songs are pleasing.But the background score,for the most part,is a torture.It manages to snuff out the dialogues even.The director shows lack of imagination and towards the end,the film seems to have been hurriedly wrapped u
