Boss – Movie Review: A movie for both class and mass audience


Challenging star Darshan is one Sandalwood actor, who knows very well about what the audience like to see in a film. We know that he has used all the commercial elements in a proportional way in his previous films. Now, he has teamed up with newcomer director R Raghuraj, who is basically a reporter. His latest movie Boss is not an usual Darshan movie. It is both class and mass film and Darshan rocks the screens with a different look in it.

Boss is an action film and Darshan’s wonderful performance is the major attraction of it. Other highlights are Raghuraj’s interesting story, Rekha’s glamour, Rangayan Raghu and Bullet Prakash’s comedy, V Harikrishna’s music Krishnakumar’s picturisation. One thing is missing in the film that is usually Darshan films will have punch dialogues, but this movie lacks punch dailogues except a few dialogues like “Rahashya andre adu obbarige gottirutte, adre adu igaa nammibargu gottu. Adu rahashyavagi ulibekandre ninirbardu…..”

Darshan has chosen a revenge drama in the film Boss for which Raghuraj has penned story, screenplay and dialogues. The story is all about twin brothers Ram and Raj. It deals with how Raj finds out the murderers of his elder brother Ram and takes revenge against them. Director is successful in blending this suspense thriller with all the commercial element in it.

Besides having an excellent storyline for the film, the director has got amazing grip on the tempo of the film, which is very dynamic and nowhere it makes audience feel bored. The movie begins with the introduction of both the characters of Ram and Raj and the story finds a new twist with the entry of a CBI officer at the end of first half. The second half is full of suspense and serious story and the twist in the climax is wonderful.

Ram and Raj (Darshan) are twin children of a businessman. Both are bright students at school, but Raj is fed the milk by maid servant (Umasri) at his birth that leads to imbibe the qualities of slum boys, which forces his father to throw him out of the house. After father’s death, Ram takes on his business and aspires to rule the construction business industry. One day, Raj finds his brother killed mysteriously in his farmhouse. How he finds his murderer and punishes him will form the crux of the movie.

Darshan has played dual roles in Boss and he is the showman. He impresses the audience with his wonderful acting in fight and dance sequence. Rekha and Navya Nair have equal scope in the film and they have lived up to their roles. Shivaji Ganeshan’s son Shivaji Prabhu, who has entered Kannada with this movie, wins the heart of the audience as CBI office. Bullet Prakash’s timely comedy is good, while Rangayan Raghu’s role seems to be little exaggerated and the director should be held responsible for it. Others like Sumithra, Umasri and Suresh Chandra are also good in their respective roles.

V Harikrishna has composed music for five songs in the film and all are good. Especially the song ‘Sona Sona…’ is melodious. Foreign locations, costumes in song sequences are well chosen. One more thing should be said here though all the songs are well placed in the film, it seems to irritate the audience, while they are serious enjoying the story of the film. AV Krishnakumar’s camera work is excellent. In some sequence, he has fast movement in his picturisation, which helps the dynamic narration of the film. Editing work is also superb.

In a nutshell, Boss is a commercial entertainer Anna (Darshan) ROCKS the show. It also gives a serious message to the audience. It can be enjoyed by both class and mass audience. It is good gift for Sankranti. Don’t miss it to watch this weekend.
