'Venkata In Sankata' is a brilliant family entertainer by actor-cum-director Ramesh Aravind with an excellent script, neat narration and slick placement of sequences. There is romance for teens, thrill for kids and sentiment for families, all with a tinge of humour. The dialogues have the `Ramesh touch' and keep you entertained all through. M S Umesh deserves a special mention for his marvellous role (Gundamma) of `ajji' (grandmother).
Police constable Venkata (Ramesh Aravind) always faces some problems on duty. Though he does good deeds, circumstances force his junior Rajaram Laddoo (Devdas) to take all the credit. Our hero finds romance when a TV anchor (Sharmila Mandre) falls in love with him. Venkata is also sent to a college to pose as a student to get information on underworld don Iqbal (Rajendra Karanth), who plans to terrorize the city with blasts. The don also threatens to kill the Prime Minister, supposed to visit the college as the chief guest at a function. Venkata handles the situation brilliantly. How?
Hats off to Ramesh for his extraordinary performance. Sharmila Mandre is simply superb. Umashri, Mukhya Mantri Chandru, Devdas, Karibasavaiah and Kashi have given life to their roles. Camerawork by P K H Das is good. Ricky Kej has composed some good numbers. In all, just go and freak out.
