Director O Raja Gajini has added some imagination to a true story and come up with ‘Uttraan’, a film that talks about college life, romance and opposition faced by the lead pair.
The story goes like this: Roshan Udhayakumar and Gana Sudhakar are friends in college. Roshan wins in the college elections and earns the wrath of the opponent. He also becomes enemy to Vela Ramamurthy, a big shot in the village.
Meanwhile, students of a nearby women’s college are asked to study in a men’s college due to building construction work. Due to this, Roshan comes across Komali.
Komali is the daughter of a police officer (Madhusdhan Rao). On coming to know about his daughter’s affair, Madhusudhan tries to separate her from him with the help of vela Ramamurthy.
They also try to bump him off. But Roshan gets the help of Ravishankar, who stands against Vela Ramamurthy.
Roshan Udhayakumar doesn’t appear to be a fresher, he has done justice. Komali is not far behind. Veyyil fame Priyanka Nair has made a decent comeback. Gana Sudhakar has added value.
The likes of veterans Vela Ramamurthy and Madhusudhan Rao are adequate, while journalist-turned-actor Ravishankar has delivered matured performance.
Halik Prabhu’s cinematography and N R Raghunanthan aptly support the director. Though the film is good in parts, we could not avoid the feel that the script could have been more gripping and the narration convincing.
