Vikrant Rona overwhelms with its technical excellence but disappoints with its story and dialogues. If only the writers had been as good as the technical team, it would have been a wonderful experience watching the film. But as a mystery thriller, apart from excellent visuals and Kiccha Sudeep, the film has little to recommend it.
There is no doubt that Kiccha Sudeep is a superstar. His swag, the manner of his dialogue delivery and the way he carries each scene is a treat for his legion of fans. He is a class apart and carries the film on his broad shoulders. He is superb in this fantasy action adventure.
The film is about the killing of a cop in a mystical village and inspector Vikrant Rona, who comes to investigate, finds that 16 children were also killed and the killings have a connection with his life. He tries to solve the mystery as the story unfolds. So does he discover the connection and find the killer or killers?
But the film lacks entertainment value and the special effects, the magnificent sets, brilliant cinematography and other 3D effects seem wasted in the absence of a proper storyline. At times, it also seems that the film drags making the viewer lose interest.
But the first day box office collections are at Rs 35cr worldwide and trade analysts predict that it will be another blockbuster although not in the class of KGF-Chapter 2 or RRR. Watch it for the excellent special effects and of course, Kiccha Sudeep.
