Love helps clear misunderstandings

Kannada (U/A) ***
Director: E Murugan
Cast: Komal Kumar, Poorna, Prathap

All the hue and cry over this film’s title was pure mischief and nothing else. Sure, the heroine is called Radhika, but there are two very fine and another seemingly clueless actresses amidst us sharing the name. Coming to the film, Murugan’s story borrows from the 2001 film My Wife Is An Actress but develops a life of its own post-interval.

And this film “tailor-made” for Komal, is a rib-tickler most of the time, which at time turns a bit sentimental and a semi-actioner–mainly to showcase the hero’s versatility. After the horror that was Nandeesha, Komal very quickly reclaims lost ground. His give-and-take with Kuri Prathap gels well with the audience. Murugan’s screenplay ensures that the actors do not go overboard. Malayalee actress Poorna, resembling Mahima Chaudhary as well as Asin, is way above competent, a pleasure to watch.

There is a touch of credibility to the scenes strung together, which makes Raadhan Ganda, another old theme, extremely watchable–particularly after sitting through Maha­n­­adi. Selvam’s camerawork is adequate, K M Prakash’s editing crisp and Manikant Kadri’s tunes pleasing, with the Iruve Kachide song standing out. Komal is back in his groove and this Raadhan Ganda is not a bad guy to know after all!
