Wenkob Rao, an Alzheimer’s patient living V in an old-age home in Bengaluru, goes missing after a day out with Shiva, his son. Shiva, a workaholic, and Dr Sahana, the psychiatrist taking care of Venkob, search for him. Meanwhile, Venkob lands himself in the middle of a murder scene and his life is at stake. What do you get when you mix the bittersweet emotional content of Hrishikesh Mukherjee films along with the dark gritty narrative of Anurag Kashyap films? You’ll get your answer when you watch Hemanth M Rao’s directorial debut effort Godhi Banna Sadharna Mykattu .
This film is all heart, with an impressive story line complemented with performances that truly leave a mark. When the makers released the first teaser and subsequently the much-spoken-about trailer of this film, everyone seemed to have thought that they knew everything about the film. But, Hemanth has only revealed the tip of the iceberg. A dialogue in the trailer sums up the crux of Hemanth’s story in the best way, where Venkob Rao says that there re-side two dogs in each of us, one black and one white, the question is which one of them wins. In his own own comic philosophical style, Venkob says the answer is the one that we feed more biscuits to.
