Karimedu Movie Review
Cast: Pooja Gandhi, Raghu Mukherjee, Makarand Deshpande, Ravi Kale, Ravi Shankar, Nisha Kothari, Muni, Karisubbu, Yathiraj and Jaidev
Kannada ”Dandupalya”, the film has been dubbed in tamil as ‘Karimedu’. “Karimedu”, which takes a true story and treats it with such honesty.It is all about heinous crimes and gore. It Narrates the story of eleven members of one of the most feared gangs of Karnataka in the late 1990s called ‘Dandupalya’. The story takes us through those days of a long forgotten era when the gang ruled the streets of Karnataka with their nefarious activities.
From robbery to murder to rape, there is nothing that these members haven’t done to strike fear in the hearts of the residents and police department. The conviction and commitment with which director Srinivasaraju brings this story alive on the screen, is outstanding. “Pooja Gandhi” as the leader of the gang is brilliant and extremely confident in her role.
While some may typecast her performance as cheap and unwelcoming. She definitely deserves special mention for proving cliches wrong. Let’s not forget some equally amazing contribution from Makarand Deshpande and Ravi Kale. Ravi Shankar gives life to his role of police inspector, while others in their respective parts outshine each other.
