Operation Alamelamma : Thrills, Tickles and Brings Back Memories

Operation Alamelamma had created waves with its captivating trailer and the movie does not disappoint. There is freshness in depicting the love blooming between Purmy, who is doing odd jobs to make a living and Ananya, a school teacher. Purmy's love for branded items makes him fall in love as well as fall into the hands of police on charges of kidnapping. As you might have guessed, it is a suspense thriller, which Suni has handled well. I kept guessing who the culprit was till the end of the movie and was wondering why the name Operation Alamelamma?

Apart from the suspense, which keeps the audience glued, it is Bengaluru's flavor which instills the spirit of our beautiful city. Visit to buttefly park and museum and trek to avalabetta bring back happy memories. Film takes a dig at popular Kannada serials with references such as Vayusaakshi and Amruthadarshini, which is hilarious! Candid market scenes is another way to depict the way of life in Bengaluru.
The song Alaga alaga is melodious. I particularly liked the line comparing heroine to Brihma Kamala (Epiphyllum oxypetalum), pristine white flower which blooms in the night. Another song Tili Sanje depicts the comical way of life of the characters, which is too good. Cinematography is excellent too, with aerial shots of Bengaluru coming out very well. Manish Rishi, the hero, who is making a debut does well to balance the innocent, comical and witty acts. Shraddha Srinath, as a bold and talkative girl impresses too.

Finally, how can a Suni movie be without punchy and witty dialogues? They are seamlessly integrated in this suspense thriller unlike his Simple Love Stories, where they stood out sidelining the plot. On the other hand, authentic Kannada dialect from Mangaluru has been used for comedy, which is been blended nicely. Seems like authentic Mangaluru Kannada dialect is the flavor of the season. Though at some places in the movie, dull moments are felt, it is the pace of the story which keeps the audience moving. Overall, a good movie to watch!
