Film: “Bisile”; Cast: Diganth, Jennifer, Dwarakish, Jai Jagadish, Chitra Shenoy, M.N. Lakshmi Devi, Umesh, Sunethra Pandit, Shivaram and others; Writer-Director: Sandeep Gowda; Producers: Kiran P. Reddy and Chandrashekhar; Music: Rishi-Gagan; Camera: Niranjan Babu; Rating: ***
“Bisile” is visually one of the most stunning Kannada films. Director Sandeep Gowda has ensured that the picturesque spots make a great visual impact in the film. To add to that, the soothing melodies of debutant music duo of Gagan and Rishi are in perfect harmony.
“Bisile” does not boasts of an off-beat story. Nothing looks fresh, but what works for the film is the way it is narrated with a tight screenplay. The dialogues are crisp and clean. The songs have been particularly well-shot. “Bisile” is a neat love story but a faster pace and little punch could have done wonders to the film. Most of the scenes are loaded with light-hearted elements rather than emotional content.
The story goes something like this. Vicky is a careless youngster who likes to show off in front of his friends. He meets Anu, a serious girl, and instantly takes a liking to her. A family picnic gives them an opportunity to meet and spend time together. Accidentally, they get lost during the trip which brings them closer.
Diganth carries off the role of an irresponsible delusioned guy with perfect ease. His dialogue delivery and body language are more than convincing. But “Bisile” has provided the best role to Jennifer who portrays just the right emotions.
Despite some of the obvious flaws, debutant director Sandeep Gowda has managed to make a decent film. If you like light romantic films with lesser quantum of emotions, you are surely going to enjoy it.
