My Goodness Gracious! What a movie? It is intellectually satisfying, soulfully soothing, touches the inner chords of the heart, makes your mind to think – about the conflict of perspectives and levels of comprehension of the intricate relationship grip of close relatives.
The single screen theatres, in the entire world, have 3 classes of audience seat-arrangement – the balcony, the front benchers and the in-betweens. I choose to call this a B-M-S (Body-Mind-Soul) architecture.
A box-office-wise successful film appeals to all the 3 categories of audience. Some episodes are voyeur and vociferous titillating the body and some incidents appeal to the finer senses of the Mind wobbling it, while there will be gems of portions of the film that exalts and exults the soul.
The film Solo, with the tag line, A Solid Love story, has the perfect balance of the B-M-S recipe.
The dialogue by the male lead, “ I am not Stupid, I am solo” sums up the entire theme in a nut shell.
Solo is one film for which I should not even think of writing a synopsis, because the entire structure of the film revolves around the conflict of fatherly love of the daughter and the lover’s love for each other. The three-part view of a plot structure (with a beginning, middle, and end – technically, the protasis, epitasis, and catastrophe – are beautifully and conceived and exceptionally executed.
This love triangle has different protagonists and antagonists and triangulates the trigonometry of Father-Daughter-Lover brilliantly.
The conflict is intrinsic and inherent – the hero, a solo, wants to marry a girl from a combined family while the girl’s father does’t want an orphan as a son-in-law
Nara Rohit is totally in command of his role and plays with a maddening method and finesse. i am so impressed with his performance and somehow it reminded of Dilip Kumar in the iconic classic Moghul-E-Azam and Raj Kumar in Dil Ek Mandir. Nisha matched Rohit in every expression and body language. Prakash Raj, as usual is simply devastating. Jayasudha lives her role. Rao Ramesh and Shayaji Shinde are as efficient as ever. Ali, MS Narayana and Sreenivas reddy conduct a laugh riot. All others fit well into the author backed roles.
The story, screenplay and dialogues are truly classic; they provoke you into thinking and at the same time evoke sympathy in the characters.
The story ding-dongs like a pendulum of emotions from one character’s perception of the situation to a diametrically opposite view of another character. The director narrated the proceedings from the point of view of all the characters. The music is both soulful and foot-tapping. The dialogues and lyrics are meaningful and have the power of a fistful of a punch. Cinematigraphy is extraordinary. Technically and production-wise, Solo is a solidly made film.
What the hell are you waiting for? C’mon, rush to your nearest screens and undergo the catharsis of different shades of love in conflict.
