It is a perfect package for entertainment lovers. The glorious production values extended by well known producer Soorappa Babu is the major striking point with excellence in performance from Kichcha Sudeep . The intelligence of director Shivakarthik is appreciable; there are a few that could have been deleted for a spectacular status for the film. Yet this is a Paisa Vasool cinema. Releasing on Vijayadashami festival day, victory is sure for this film in the box office. Do not look at the logic, go for the magic of cinema – watch it on the big screen for a better enjoyment.
As we know in Kotigobba 2 `Shiva` character dies and Sathya remains. Sathya and Shiva are the same as what the audience came to know. There is a twist that is brilliant in this `Kotigobba 3`. Shiva character is back, there is Sathya and of course a ghost to give justice to the title `Kotigobba 3`.
The grandeur of Sathya activities is too big there is a Poland portion that is very interesting for a commercial entertainer. The cinema as a whole, although filled with a few confusions gives a solid entertainment. For this, the performance of artists, cinematography, music and screenplay also counts. The biggest task for Sathya is to demolish the demon that is on a destructive formula. The flashback tale of talented actress Abhirami handling it is attempted for family audiences.
It is entertainment, entertainment and entertainment and nothing else. Kichcha Sudeep shoulders the responsibility more here, compared to his prequel. Ravishanker steals the show in the post interval. Aftab Shivadasani, Shradda Das, Nawab Shah gives the required strength for the film. Tabla Nani, Rangayana raghu, Ravishanker Gowda present a few tickling moments.
Madona Sebastin is convincing in her debut in Kannada, Pataki Porio….song brings extra mileage for actress Ashika Ranganath.
The stunts and chase are fantastic and appeal to the fans. Arjun Janya gives his best; Shekar Chandru`s work in camera is very attractive. The Poland portions are mind blowing.
A film to watch for entertainment sake is `Kotigobba 3`. For Kotigobba 4 the stage is set but that is another toughest task.
