Young actor Nikhil Siddharth, Simran Parenja and Samyuktha Hegde starrer Kirrak Party, the remake of Kannada film Kirik Party, has hit the theaters today on 16th March.

Story: Krishna (Nikhil Siddharth) is a happy go lucky engineering student. He has his own gang of mates who takes on with the senior’s gang. Krishna falls in the love of Meera (Simran Pareenja). They both roam, have fun and open up themselves when they meet but do not confess their love for each other. When they decided to confess their love for each other, Meera dies in an incident and this instance change the life of Krishna. How he comes out as a successful student and sincere human being, form the crux of the story.
Performance: Nikhil is shown in two different shades and he impresses the audiences in both avatars. Simran Pareenja as Meera is good and Samyuktha Hegde is nice as Satya. Both the actresses have added their own quirks to the film. Rakendu Mouli and other actors who played as friends of Nikhil Siddharth are good. Hanumanthu Gowda as Principal of college justifies with his role.
Technical: Kirrak Party is a campus story, a coming-of-age and also a romantic film. Set in an engineering college, it explores friendship, romance and the usual student mischiefs, mainly from the perspective of the protagonist, Krishna. The dialogues have words and phrases that is contemporary college-lingo. The background score is decent and the editing is just ok. The background score is nice. Cinematography by Advaitha Gurumurthy is good. Production values are rich.
Analysis: Kirrak Party is a film to party with friends. The director manages to derive lively and realistic performances from all actors. There are only so many things that usually happen to college students, so Nikhil Siddharth and his gang live, love, laugh and cry. Kirrak Party constitutes almost everything what college life is all about – the last bench gang, the crushes, love, breakups, election, lecturers, exam tensions, rivalry, proxy attendance, library, seniors, juniors, hostel, last minute project preparations, suspension, and even the friendly peons.
