Close on the heels of dog-centric movies which got released in the recent past, like ‘Simba’ and ‘Watchman’, here comes ‘Puppy’, which is a romantic comedy entertainer.
Directed by Nattu Dev, the movie’s characters are minimal, with just two to three persons occupying majority of the screen space. However, within the limited resources, the film tries to make us smile and laugh.
Prabhu (Varun), who studies final year in a college, takes care of a dog called Puppy, who loves him a lot. His only aim in life is to lose virginity.
Since he is unable to achieve his ‘mission’, he gets advice him from his senior (Yogi Babu), but only lands in goof ups. At last, he finds some luck in life when a beautiful girl called Ramya (Samyuktha Hegde) comes as a tenant in his house.
Both get attracted to each other and fall in love. Finally, Prabhu gets what he wants. However, both soon face the risk of becoming parents and start blaming each other.
In the meantime, Puppy falls sick which too becomes a cause of concern for Prabhu and Ramya. Did they able to overcome the troubles they face?
Varun and Samyuktha Hegde are right choices for their respective roles and do well. But the scene stealer is Yogi Babu, whose body language and dialogue delivery give funny moments.
Though the plot is not tight and some scenes appear far-stretched, ‘Puppy’ is not so boring. Especially, the scenes after the interval and before the climax bring the roof down.
Rating: 2.75 out of 5
