Some stories are mind-numbingly poor in selling the content laced with the mother-son sentiment. Dhruva Sarja starrer Pogaru is one such story that is released on the big screen simultaneously in Telugu and Kannada.
The story begins with Shiva, played by Dhruva Sarja, who grows up in an orphanage after losing his father. Missing his mother’s love at a very young age, he couldn’t stop cursing her for marrying another person. As an aimless youngster, Shiva develops anger against society. Finds joy in illegal activities that earns him quick money. Shiva, a ruffian who is insensitive to people around him and as a person who lives on his own terms, gradually transforms into a nicer human.
Apart from the romance, sister sentiment and the action in the movie, Dhruva fits the camera as does dance, comedy and action with unpredictable ease. It appears that the story of a thin line is stretched into a nearly three-hour flick with no thrills.
However, for Dhruva Sarja, who appeared on the silver screen after four years, Pogaru is surely a visual treat for his fans across the Kannada film industry. Cinematography should be hailed in giving good visuals throughout the movie.
