‘James’: Puneeth Rajkumar’s Last Film Review, Live Audience Response

Published

on

The release of Puneeth Rajkumar’s last film, ‘James’, on his birthday is an emotional experience for supporters. The sad circumstances surrounding the premiere of this film make it remarkable and unique. Puneeth would have been 47 today if he hadn’t died of a heart arrest last year, while he was in the heyday of his profession.

What The Story Is About

People are waiting to see their favourite perform what he does best on screen one last time in the action thriller. ‘James’ is introduced by director Chethan Kumar in a very familiar manner. He sets the scene for the hero’s entrance by introducing the primary antagonists (of which there are many) and the primary struggle. Santhosh Kumar, played by Puneeth Rajkumar, is the owner of J Wings, a private security company. He is recruited by a wealthy businessman to save his daughter, who has been kidnapped by his competitors. While elite police officers and officials on his payments fail to help the disgruntled businessman, Santhosh jumps right in.

We also learn later that Santhosh is a natural at rescue missions. Santhosh’s debut scene checks all the criteria in the hero entrance checklist. Rangayana Raghu plays a faithful sidekick who encourages Santhosh. We first see Santhosh’s feet, then his silhouette, and finally him entering his outfit muscle automobile while composer Charan Raj’s band plays the rhythms with a full volume. We have yet to glimpse the director’s face, and it appears that he is biding his time. However, Chethan understands that the supporters are keen to see Puneeth’s face, given the circumstances. That segment is one of the last scenes he shot before his early passing, so it’s a special occasion for them.
