Though this is Jackie's second Kannada film after 'Care of Foot Path', it provides more scope for him. He plays a lion-hearted cop who reforms the underworld hirelings. And his presence is the only saving grace in this otherwise ordinary film that is marred by a loose script and a predictable story.
Director Lucky Shankar Adithya shows little promise.
Though the veteran artists have delivered, the newcomers fail to give a credible performance.
Anil is a software engineer who is enjoying life with his helpful parents. Then enters Swathi in his life. Once Nitish reciprocates to her feelings, the story takes quite a few twists. He gets involved with an underworld don Mooga who is killed in a gang war and police suspects Anil who is sent to jail.
Meanwhile police officer Ramakanth Thyagi is on a mission to reform rowdies. He thinks politics and criminal nexus is creating a new breed of crime infested youngsters. How Anil and Swathi gets united forms rest of the story.
Nitish has to improve a lot, though he has done well in the action sequences. The director should have worked on hero's expressions in important sequences.
It seems heroine Akarsha has been completely ignored by the technical team - both her characterization and performance are weak. Sadhu Kokila's comedy sequences are irritating.
Technically and musically, the film falls below the existing standards in Kannada films.
'Zamana' is an average fare and you can find it a little interesting if you are an ardent Jackie fan.
