Crazy Star Ravichandran in and as Krazy Star. The cliched prefix to the title is missing. Perhaps, it would have been better, considering that the film, for the better part, is the actor-directors reflection on his own career. Another big chunk of the film is nothing, but a plug for his long-pending Manjina Hani. Krazy Star, in this case, can be considered the longest trailer for an upcoming film. And finally, he introduces his second son, Vikram, on screen. This is not his launchpad but another teaser of what Ravichandran has in store for him. The rest of the film is part of the plot from the Malayalam film Traffic. Who else, but an actor that cannot be blamed for being a narcissist? But the mid-life crisis in his career that started after the loss of his most ambitious Ekangi continues to haunt him. So there is he talking about its financial failure but still managing to win five state awards. He also has a clarification for agreeing to act as Sudeeps father in his other upcoming film Manikya. And of course, there is the coming soon, Manjina Hani. For those who are not nostalgic about the showman of Sandalwood, these could look like too much of an ego-boosting exercise. But for those who know the person behind the personality, this mini-biopic could be heartwarming. The first half of the film is a real bore. This is more so because for the first time, Hamsalekha and Ravichandran fail to produce magic with the songs. Hamsalekha has not scored the music but only penned the lyrics. Even then, its a big let-down. The film picks up pace in the second half where there is a race against time and an ensemble cast joins the already packed list of actors. In the end, you are left wondering whether to rue the lost decade of Ravichandran or join in his hope that the best is yet to come. Ravichandran proves that when it comes to depicting beauty on screen, there is hardly anyone who can match him. It is as if he creates new colours in every frame. He has proved that too often. He made remake films that were often considered far better than the originals. It was his ambitious originals that failed. The question is whether he has enough ammunition left to reinvent himself. He needs to reintroduce himself to the new generation of movie audience. Krazy Star is for those who are already Ravichandrans fans: those were teenagers in the 1980s and 1990s.
