'Sarkari Hi. Pra. Shale, Kasaragodu' Kannada Movie Review

Sarkari Hiriya Prathamika Shale Kasaragodu is directed by Rishab Shetty, who earlier directed films 'Kirik Party' and 'Ricky'. Sarkari Hi. Pra. Shale focuses on the plight of Kannada medium schools in Kasargod of Kerala. The film garnered a lot a praise by both audience and the critics. The trailer had also generated a positive response on youtube. And after a lot of hold-up, I finally decided to watch the film, which is still running in the multiplexes. So, did the film live up to the expectations? Let's find out in this review. Read on.

'Sarkari Hiriya Prathamika Shale Kasaragodu' narrates the story of Kannada speaking children in Kasaragod Kerala, whose education comes to a halt when the Kannada medium school in which they are studying is shut down by the authorities. The film showcases the step-motherly treatment meted out to the Kannada schools by Kerala authorities. The film delicately tables the issue and tries to find solutions, and makes sure that it does not turn it into a Kerala vs Karnataka thing.

Sarkari Hi. Pra. Shale is a beautiful film to watch. The story has been narrated in a jovial manner which makes the film a pleasant watch. The film is carefully crafted and nicely incorporates the regional flavour, lifestyle and dialect. The characters are neatly, sufficiently thoroughly developed, and are realistic. Each of the characters have been given their own distinctive personality, and are well written. The characters are lovable, specially the kids, who are the central to the film.

The soul of this film is its exemplary writing which is evident in every frame of the film, and is wonderfully complimented by its cinematography and acting. Background music is good and helps to maintain the mood of the film.

While most of the film is neatly played out, there are a few portions which could have been handled better. For example, the police station scene involving Anant Nag and Rishab Shetty is quite annoying and is slightly dragged, and it finds its place in the middle of the film out of nowhere. I feel they could have thought of a better way to introduce and install Anant's character in the film. And the police station scene in the second half, where the education officer is complaining of theft against the kids. The scene is uneven and undercooked. In an attempt to keep things humoured, the supposedly serious scene ends up being ineffective, as the adult characters themselves act goofy. While in most of the other scenarios, it was the situation which evoked humour rather than the characters being comical.

'Sarkari Hiriya Prathamika Shale Kasaragodu' ends on a high note. The climax courtroom drama led by Anant Nag, nicely balances and blends the humour and serious aspects, and gives the film a good nice effective ending.

Overall, 'Sarkari Hiriya Prathamika Shale Kasaragodu' is a beautiful colourful film that will make you feel nostalgic, and is well worth a watch.

Rating - 4/5
