Hosa Dinachari Movie Review : A slice-of-life film set in COVID times
Review: There are several stories that evolve simultaneously in this flick – Veeranna (Babu Hiraniah) is admitted to a hospital after testing positive for COVID and Bharath (Deepak Subramanya) is a doctor in the same hospital. Veeranna’s wife is lonely, stuck at home. Couple Apeksha (Mandara) and Sharan, who are about to split, are locked down in the same apartment. On the other hand, cab driver Rajesh (Chethan Vikki) is quarantined, and Kiran (Varsha) enters the scene. All these fragments come together and connect at one point to form the rest of the story.
Debutant directors Keerthi Shekhar and Vaishakh Pushpalatha have delivered a simple feel-good film that talks about the value of relationships and different aspects. The film shows the hardships everyone – from the common man to doctors – faced during COVID. A slice-of-life film, all the actors – Babu Hiraniah, Aruna Balraj, Deepak Subramanya, Chethan Vikky, Mandara Betthalli, Varsha, Sripriya – have performed their roles with ease. They look natural, and are convincing. The film talks about several unseen effects of COVID, and how the pandemic affected the lives of so many people, directly and indirectly.
This is a feel-good film that can be enjoyed in theatres as it gives a refreshing feel in this post-COVID world.
