3 Ghante 30 Dina 30 Seconds, Kannada movie directed by Madhusudan G K and starring Arund Gowda and Kavya Shetty is a romantic drama between a young man and a female journalist. The movie is produced by Chandrashekar R Padmashali and is scheduled to be released on 19 January 2018. It is a sweet and honest movie, that is surely going to appeal to people who just want to have a good time at the theater. But even though it might seem simple to some, there are very good performances from the cast, and every one will have to find excuses not to be affected by the movie.
It starts out very seriously, an there are times in the first half of the movie which feels like the story is another rip off of countless revenge love stories with nothing new. But slowly, it appears that the plot is only there to introduce us to the amazing characters. The story might be old fashioned or even trite, but the actors are so committed that they make you believe even the most absurd lines and twists. Arund is smashing as the main lead of the movie, confident and swaggering, but also sensitive and intelligent. While Kavya Shetty isn’t your typical romantic actress. She is expressive and very cunning, able to get her way even though she seems to be by the side of her man.
The movie is expertly shot by the director, although, there are quite some hiccups along the way, with too many twists and some political commentary that doesn’t land properly. But the ending is especially powerful and will be remembered by anyone who sees the movie. It might not be the most novel story ever made, but it has its charms, and capable leads who are at the top of their games.
