Is there any Googly in the climax ? Go, see for yourself to know more.
As goes the movie title ‘Googly’, there is not much twists and turns for the audience to get tensed about. Pavan Wadeyar has opted to narrate simple love story on a comedy track with perfect placement of songs and fights. Pavan has improved alot better than his first movie as director. cuts on double meaning dialogues, item songs and vulgar scenes at the script level show the maturity of young director and his team. Yash steals the show with his dialogue delivery, fight scenes and surprising fits in for comedy as well. Kriti Kharbanda looks very pretty and fits in the block perfectly. Anant Nag is versatile as usual. Sadhu kokila, Sudha Belawadi, Aswath Neenasam, Sandeep fit in with ease in their respective characters. Joshua Sridhar has given melodious as well as peppy numbers for the movie. Googly Gandasare keli song cheer up the mood where as Yeno yeno and Bisilu kudure songs are catchy for the melody. Cinematography by Vaidhi is neat although it has missed out on focusing subjects in few frames.
Googly belongs to both class and mass audience. Pavan Wadeyar and team has taken care in delivering right amount of entertainment for people of all age group. Googly has received ‘U’ certificate from censor and is a decent movie for family audience to watch.
Googly is a simple love story engaging all set of audiences. Watch it for entertainment and nothing else.
