Dinesh Baboo deserves full credit for making this thoroughly enjoyable film despite its limited budget. He has selected a story that does not need a big technical back up and there are no photographical or musical gimmicks in the film as seen in many of the recent films. But with a good script Ganesha becomes an engaging fare and the presence of talented artists like Jaggesh, Anant Nag, Sharan and Rangayana Raghu has ignited lot of comedy fire works in the film. And the Baboo touch can be seen in some emotional sequences in the film.
The story revolves around Ganesha, a middle class bachelor who is already in deep debts. He wants to sell off his ancestral property to come out of the debt trap. But his father had extracted a promise from Ganesha that the property will not be sold under any circumstances. Ganesha wants to break this promise, but he finds that his dead father comes as a ghost to create bottlenecks for the sale. An exasperated Ganesha now finds another problem surrounding his neck. He will have another responsibility to save his sister born out of his father?s second wife that leads to many complicated situations.
Jaggesh has excelled in the role of Ganesha and he has proved that he will shine well if given an opportunity to work with a good director and in films backed by good scripts. His timing is superb. Despite Anant Nag has matched Jaggesh in every aspect and enlivens with his expressions and dialogues. Sharan comes out good in his brief role. He will certainly move ahead in days to come. Ajay, Rangayana Raghu, Vanitha Vasu and Sharan have delivered strong performances.
Dinesh Baboo is a cameraman himself, but it is surprising that the technical standard of this film is just above average. Musical composition work is also ordinary. Ganesha is an entertaining and clean film with competent performances by Jaggesh and Anant Nag. Watch it.
