Mundina Nildana is a Kannada movie. It is romantic movie directed by Vinay Bharadwaj and produced by Coastal Breeze Production banner. The movie cast includes Praveen Tej, Radhika Narayan and Ananya Kashyap are in the main lead roles while Jim Satya scored music.
Partha, an acclaimed photographer, recounts his journey into photography as he narrates his meetings with Meera and Ahana, at different junctures in his life. The story traces the journey and growth of these three characters.
One of the first things that stand out in this film is the cinematography, courtesy Abhimanyu Sadanandan. The film is beautifully etched on a canvas that lends an aspirational tone. Debutant filmmaker Vinay Bharadwaj has come up with a film that looks rich and beautiful in every frame.
The story by itself, is introspective in nature. It captures the three protagonists trying to find their way through life. Their lives are intertwined through accidental circumstances and each of them ends up being a big catalyst in the other's journey.
The music to captures the essence of the story. What could have sealed the effect of the narrative is that little bit more punch. While the filmmaker has chosen a pace that slowly and steadily works towards an interesting climax, a little more drama in dealing with the myriad emotions might have helped make the intended impact.
Performance by all three lead actors is commendable, they look good and are on point. Dattanna in his cameo is also adorable, as always. Mundina Nildana is definitely one of the most good-looking films in recent times and it does merit a watch, if you like slice-of-life dramas with a hint of philosophical tones.
