Dia 2020 Kannada Movie Review & Box-Office
Dia is a wonderful attempt in the romantic movie’s genre. The film offers fresh screenplay, brilliant direction & career-best performances from the lead cast backed by the haunting background score. Not many love stories are told from the girl’s point of view & Dia definitely impresses in this point.
The first half starts slowly & picks up immediately with exceptional episodes, surprising you every minute. The second half is absolutely masterclass with the best performance from Pruthvi Ambaar & his scenes with his mother is sure to make anyone heartfelt.
Khushi as Dia couldn’t get better as she gives an award-winning performance. Dheekshith Shetty also makes an impact with his screen presence. Pruthvi Ambaar’s performance stands out & Pavitra Lokesh as a mother is perfect too. The songs in the love stories are the most beautiful part. Dia has no songs in it & Ajaneesh Loknath has to get full credits as he takes the movie all to another level with his heartfelt music which will haunt you for a long time. The cinematography is elegant too.
Director K.S. Ashoka surely makes a firm place in the Kannada film industry, suggesting that his first film was not a fluke. He carries the audience off their feet with his splendid writing showcasing love & emotions without many actors as it would have it clumsy.
Overall, Dia is a new age Mungaru Male, as referred to by many & is a must-watch movie this year, especially this Valentine’s. Go fall in love with Dia at your nearest theatres, as it offers nothing but surprises.
