Male Billhe

Male Billhe


The unnecessary ‘h’ in the title card is the first indicator of a ‘sur’ gone wrong, a strand straying out of place. The film opens to a scene where a bunch of young men arrive at a hill station (which also include Bangalore streets) to write the CET. Hero Anand (newcomer Akshay who resembles Vinayak Joshi), is Mr Positive-in-life, who chances upon Anjali (Prajna, surprisingly well-clad most of the time) a fellow CET candidate.

‘Malebillhe’ follows their story to a predictable end. ‘Malebillhe’ is also an arrogant product that insults the intelligence of Komal, Sharan, and the audience. Sukhadhare descends to new levels of idiocy with tripe dialogues spoiling each scene- what could have been a well-packaged routine stuff falls flat, never to get up again.

Cinitech Soori has little to prove, with the lush greenscape doing half the job for him. The saxophone bit during the climax is the lone gem in Manikant Kadri’s score. Akshay’s confidence is among the highlights of the film.

Ramakrishna, Sangeetha and Doddanna are all well-placed. Hopefully, ‘Malebillhe’ will be the last such role for Digant.  Finally, rainbow is known as Kamanabillu or Malebillu in Kannada, not ‘Malebillhe’ or ‘Malebille’!
