Harish Kalyan is one actor who is properly fitting into the shoes of a chocolate boy these days. Pyaar Prema Kadhal and Ispade Rajavum Idhaya Raaniyum have given him the image, and he has got another chance to prove his worth with his latest film in Dhanusu Raasi Neyargale. It comes off as a jolly film that can be watched as a popcorn entertainer, at best.
Dhanusu Raasi Neyargale brings in a man who is obsessed with astrology, and looks for time, stars and such things in every move of his. The film follows his two love stories and the spot he reaches at the end, with enough life advice and viewpoints. Though the film follows a free-flowing pattern throughout, it doesn’t have much progression on the whole, and only banks on the presence of the cast and the overall lighthearted factor.
Harish Kalyan is very good as the youngster who tries to fight his way through his personal problems. Digangana comes in as the chic and trendy girl who is very progressive in life, with a motive and dream to achieve. On the other hand is Reba, who has a short but pleasing role to play.
Together, the trio form the majority of the film’s quotient, and help it jog forward. The other support actors such as Munishkanth fit the bill, especially at the end where the familial angle comes together.
Technically, Dhanusu Raasi Neyargale is quite weak due to the shaky cinematography and the music that doesn’t complement the film’s mood. The film needed better hands on the edit table too as it feels long despite the short runtime.
On the whole, Dhanusu Raasi Neyargale is a fair entertainer that works in parts. The film does have some rough edges which could have been straightened out with some more work on the writing.
