"Rambo" is the 100th film of popular comedian Sharan, who has jointly produced the film with Atlanta Nagendra, a NRI who made a successful film like "Joke Falls" earlier.
Srinath makes his debut as a director with "Rambo", which is a neat and highly enjoyable film.
With well written dialogues, some superb twists in the story, it keeps the audience engaged. The icing on the cake is top class technical work in the form of music, camera work and choreography of the songs.
The films boasts of Srinath's writing skills as he has written a good script and apt dialogues for the situations in the film.
Actor Tabala Naani makes the sequences interesting with his one-liners filled with native elements.
A fast-paced film, it doesn't have a single dull moment. High end production values are another major attraction.
Funny dialogues and good performances from all the veteran artists will certainly entertain the audience. Another plus point of the film is that leading star Ganesh has given a voiceover in the film.
But it has some flaws too and one of them is Umashri's overacting and some double- meaning dialogues.
In the film, Krishna and his uncle Belt Kumar are cheats, who make money by selling used cars. Krishna's mother wants him to get married, but his cheap behaviour drives away girls.
Finally, Revathy agrees to marry him but when she comes to know about his bad habits, she too backs out.
Both Sharan and Tabla Naani complement each other. Madhuri has a sizeable role and she proves that she is a bankable actress.
Veterans Rangayana Raghu, Sadhu Kokila and M.S. Umesh have done a good job and they will surely evoke laughter with their antics in the film.
Arjun Janya's song compositions are top class with "Mane thanaka baare" and "Jaya Jaya Jockettu" becoming chartbusters. Krishna's camera work and Imran's dance choreography are top class.
"Rambo" is a good entertainer and is enjoyable from start to finish.
