The story of the film is based on three stories which do not have connection with each other. Chaitanya Krishna who is a college student looks for a girlfriend. He plays different tricks to impress girls and make them as his girlfriend.
Another story is Mahat Raghavendra who is a call center employee and he desires to become rich overnight. He tries hard to become rich and plans different strategies to earn money.
Finally, Kamal Kamaraju is a software engineer who neglects his wife played by Nikitha Narayan. But one day, Mahat Raghavendra faces serious problem and his life changes then.
How these three people overcome their problems? Do they able to fulfill their desires? Forms the rest of the story.
Chaitanya Krishna who has acted as fraud student in Chandamama Kathalu does a convincing act as a sincere and pure-hearted boy who longs for a girlfriend.
Sesh Adivi is perfectly apt for a suave and foreign-returned hunk who is out to meet his ex-flame.
Mahath Raghavendra is believable as a man who resorts to fraud, but is vulnerable and honest at heart.
Kamal Kamaraju is rightly cast for a man who prefers professional live over personal life.
Nikitha Narayan gets a nice role and she does justice.
Swathi Deekshith is beautiful as a traditional girl.
Jasmine Bhasin portrayed the role of a model who wants to become an actress. Jeeva plays a familiar role of a recovery agent. The guy who acted friend of Chaitanya Krishna (dialogues are typical to that of Venu Madhav’s in Toliprema) is good.
Music by Ragu Kunche is decent and the title song has been conceived well. Background score is good and so are the dialogues. Screenplay of the film is crisp as all the three stories have been narrated without any confusion.
Director Manjunath has impressed with his first outing and has narrated the multi-faceted story in a thrilling way. The way he has showcased the harsh side effects of internet based relationships is clear and to the point. Editing is fine and so is the camerawork.
First Half bit slow
Ends with an abrupt end
Ladies and Gentlemen is an anthology movie joining the elite club in which films like Vedam, Love Ishq Kadal and Chandamama Kathalu were already part of.
Songs by Raghu Kunche are just ordinary and Background Score is decent. Cinematography is appealing. Dialogues generate humour. Editing is crisp. Production Values aren’t bad actually.
The stories narrated in ‘Ladies and Gentlemen’ will connect big time with Social Media-savy Youth as it acts as an eye-opener for those who were unaware of the dark-sides of Facebook, Twitter & WhatsApp Relationships. Major asset of this movie is its short Run Time and makers did a favour to themselves by keeping it as short as possible.
Final Word: Overall Ladies and Gentlemen is watchable Movie. No commercial angles and fun. It is bold, concept driven and yet interesting. Success of this movie depends mostly on how the Urban Youth embrace it.
