Nagshekhar has done it again. The actor turned director who enthralled the audience with 'Sanju Weds Geetha' is back with yet another film. 'Mynaa' moves in the same direction, but ends up being different.
This time Nag has discovered an untold story from the files of retired ACP Ashok Kumar and has narrated it in cinematic style.
The film kicks off with the murder of a doctor who is also the brother of the Home Minister of the state. ACP Ashok Kumar (Sharath Kumar) handles this high profile case. The chase begins and Ashok Kumar catches the murderer Satya in Chennai. The police team brings Satya to Bangalore and Ashaok Kumar is stunned to hear the story of Satya and why he murdered the doctor. That story forms the crux of the film.
Kudos to the director for selecting such a story and narrating it so deftly. The first half of the film is a bit slow. But the second half makes the audience glued to their seats. The director could have easily avoided some silly comic sequences. Other than that Nagshekhar has done a neat job in story, screenplay and direction.
Technically the film is a brilliant one with the camera, music and editing departments competing with each other. Satya Hegde, Jessie Gift and Harsha have done a brilliant job and scores in their respective fields.
Acting wise, it is Nitya Menon who is top rated. The actress fits in the role of Mynaa and has given a wonderful performance. Chethan is also at his best and has given a career best performance. Tabla Naani, Sharath Kumar, Suman Ranganath are good.
'Mynaa' is a feel film. Watch it to feel it.
