Gaalipata flies high! A neat family entertainer.

Times Of India -> Rating – 4/5 (Very Good)

THIS is a masterpiece by director Yogaraj Bhat after the success of his earlier film Mungaru Male . This romantic story is more serious. The script has been brilliantly handled and the narration is excellent. But the heart of the story is Bhat’s dialogues which send out a message.  Don’t be surprised if tears flow from your eyes after watching the brilliant climax in this film about three boys falling in love with three girls with two getting engaged to their lovers while the other struggles to get the girl.
Though the story is simple, there is always the ‘Yogaraj Bhat touch’ with fresh ideas and innovations.
Three friends Ganesh (Ganesh), Diganth (Diganth) and Rajesh Krishna (Kitty) come to Mugilupete. Ganesh falls in love with Sowmya (Daisy Bopanna), a widow, staying with her in-laws Kodandaram (Anant Nag) and Padma (Padmaja Rao) while Diganth and Kitty fall for Kodandaram’s daughters Radha (Nita) and Pavani (Bhavana Rao) respectively.
While Diganth-Nita and Kitty-Pavani get the green signal for marriage, Sowmya is hesitant to accept Ganesh as her life partner. The director shows how Ganesh wins her heart, in a unique way.
The ‘talkative’ Ganesh is simply superb with his body language, dialogue delivery and expressions. Rajesh Krishna, Diganth, Nita, Bhavana Rao perform extremely well.
Anant Nag is at his best.
But it is Rathnavelu who walks away with all honours for his brilliant handling of the camera.
V Harikrishna has given some foot-tapping numbers.

Finally, Yogaraj Bhat’s much awaited Gaalipata (Kite) has started ‘flying in the sky’. Those keen on watching this kite gear up for this weekend. The awesome locations, beautiful camera work, good screen play and superb performance by the lead actors make it to the list of good films. The director has once again shown that even a simple story can be presented well, provided that the movie excels in the above departments.
Kudos to Ganesh who overshines everybody in the film. His onscreen presence, dialogue delivery make it clear that he is a ‘natural’ actor. As a result, it becomes easy to identify yourself with the character without your knowledge.
The plot revolves around three friends Ganesh ( Ganesh) Diganth (Diganth) and Kitty ( Rajesh) who decide to move away from the city with the hope of changing the ‘track of their life’. The dialogues and scenes seem close to reality. And you wouldn’t be surprised if Gaalipata reminds you of Mungaaru Male, thought with a slight difference.
It is Ratnavelu, the cameraman, who emerges as the real hero of the movie by capturing the beauty of Kodachadri and Kodagu and other awesome locations.
This film is a visual treat to audience. The director has shown his imagination power by using kite as a device to express Ganesh’s feelings to his beloved. Cute Diganth has shown maturity in acting but, there is still scope for improvement. Rajesh is a perfect match for the role Kitty. Daisy Bopanna who plays the role of Sowmya, a widow, has done well. Raadha (Neetu) Paavani (Bhavana Rao) have done justice to their roles. Anant Nag is at his best in the role ‘Kodandaram’, a physically challenged person. Rangayana Raghu’s presence on the screen it self brings laughter, he needn’t utter a single word.
Music director, Hari krishna has scored a few good tracks – title song and Minchaagi neenu baralu, but the duet song of Diganth is a forgettable one.

Yograj Bhat delivers again – Gaalipata flies high!
Since the day of its launch Gaalipata has created headlines for many many reasons. Firstly it’s a first Kannada film to be shot in Super 35mm format. It is a big budget film with an ensemble starcast lead by the current box office favorite Golden Star Ganesh. Directed by one of the best Director in Kannada Films today Yograj Bhat, Gaalipata had created such a big hype that audiences are flocking to the theatres with very high expectations. Does the film meet the expectations? Is it a sixth hit film in a row for Ganesh? Here is the verdict.
As Yograj Bhat has told time and time again, GAALIPATA is not another MUNGAARU MALE. Gaalipata is much bigger.Its a joy ride of nonstop comedy with a bit of emotion and drama in between. It’s a spectacle of beautiful locations, songs and comedy. Three buddies decide to take a break from the boring city life and spend some time in MUGILU PETE. The scene where the three Gani, Diganth and Kitti meet the girls is brilliantly visualized and executed by the director.Although there is nothing new in the storyline, the presentation, the dialogues and vivid characterization keeps you laughing throughout the film.Yograj Bhat’s Mugilupete is so beautiful that you start to wonder whether it’s a foreign location.But once again Bhat proves that you need not go outside Karnataka to shoot a beautiful film. Gaalipata is a treat to watch, Kodachadri will be a famous place to visit after seeing this film.In Mungaaru it was a rabbit, this time it’s a wild pig.Bhat has blended animals a character to the story very wisely. The pig is a major talking point throughout the film. The scenes where Anant Nag, Ganesh and rest of them try to hunt the notorious animal have been shot and composited intelligently. The EFX team in Chennai deserves a credit for this. The climax of the film is predictable, but who cares? You come out of the theatre with a big smile. PAISA VASOOL!
All the actors have done a competent job. If there is one actor who is extraordinary, it has to be Ganesh.He is so casual and easy going throughout the film that you start to wonder what is so special about him? Why has he made it so big in just one year? Why do women think he is sexy? Ganesh is special because of his effervescence, his simple sense of style, his screen presence, his comic timing. No actor in the Kannada film industry today can match his performance in Gaalipata.This film too will be a hit! How big a hit only time will tell…… Diganth has improved his acting prowess by leaps and bounds.Or may be it’s the Yograj Bhat effect.Rajesh Krishnan for a change has acted instead of singing.Can you imagine a top class play back singer not singing in his own film? Daisy Bopanna is very subdued and quite through out the film, a contrasting role for someone who was a bike riding tom boy! Neetu is yet another talented actress who has been neglected by the Kannada film industry. She has proved her mettle especially in the scenes with Diganth.Bhavana Rao is a bundle of talent. She is bubbly, naughty and also very funny. She is a brilliant dancer; she deserves author backed roles to show her full potential.
Ananth Nag, Padmaja Rao and Sudha Belavadi are at their usual best. There are two more stars in the film we must not forget. There is Rangayana Raghu who graces the screen for 3 scenes and steals the show and there is Dayal Padmanabhan, the executive producer of the film, he is terrific throughout the film.
Technically Galipata is very rich.Yograj Bhat’s aesthetic sense, his choice of locations add to the beauty of the film.Ratnavelu has painted the screen with vibrant colours with his extra ordinary camera work .Shot in a Super 35 mm film camera, Gaalipata is comparable to any Hindi film in its visual quality. Digital Intermediate work further enhances the colour quality and sharpness of the film. All the song sequences have been picturised exceedingly well. Harikrishna’s music is a big hit. All the songs are hummable and are played by all the FM Radio stations over and over again.Jayant Kaikini has once again come up with some magical lines which you keep murmuring all the time. Suresh Urs one of India’s best editors has cut the film brilliantly. Yograj Bhat has done it again. His hard work has paid off.Bhat is one of the very few directors who has tasted failure and success in a very big way. He was magnanimous in his failure and is even now. Kudos to him for giving us Gaalipata.Sky is the limit for Yograj Bhat.He will make some bigger and better films in the future.
Galipata’s success will catapult Ganesh into super stardom.Looks like he will rules the hearts of Kannada people like he rules the box office.He deserves all the success,because he is a very rare talent.
Overall Galipata is a winner! A neat family entertainer. Go watch it now!
OKC rating: 8/10

  6. The young, bubbling, extremely talented Bhavana Rao shines most of all. Bhat has recognised talents in her and given her ample opportunity espcecially in the dance number -“Nadhim Dhin Tana..”, and she has not missed the chance even a bit. Did you notice that she got most close-up camera shootings in the movie? Because she is the most talented and expressive actress in the movie.

    Her expressive eyes with non-stop “Abhinaya” and body movements demonstrate her talents in Bharatanatya as well. Bhavana is a Ragi Mudde, Soppina Saaru liking Appata Kannadathi from interior Karnataka and we must wish her all the success and maximum opportunities that she deserves at least in the South Indian filmdom.

    What I could not stand in the movie was too rough and humiliating dialogues in some situations. Especially those ‘spitting’ reactions of Nitu.
