It is better for technically competent directors like Sekhar to realise that storytelling on screen does not limit to stylish presentation, but it is much more than that.
'Romeo' could have been few notches better than it is had Sekhar worked on its second half and tuned it well. However, even with a weak second half, the movie is quite engaging and is really hilarious in the first half.
The song picturisation are superb and the comic timing of all the actors including Ganesh, Rangayana Raghu and Sadhu Kokila, is perfect.
The dialogues by Narayan are crisp and funny at times. The technical support to the film apart, 'Romeo' also has another strength -- its comedy elements. But unfortunately, 'Romeo' is also like many well-mounted technical films which suffered from lack of consistency.
Ganesh is the screen charmer. His look is apt for the role and his dialogue delivery is superb. In a few emotional sequences, he even makes the audience weep. In a way, he has shown that he is a complete actor.
Bhavana is a real scene stealer in many sequences in the second half. She looks quite glamorous in the song sequences, but it is Rangayana Raghu and Sadhu Kokila's comedy timing which assure to tickle your funny bone.
Sudha Belawadi and Avinash have essayed their roles perfectly.
Arjun Janya's music compositions are quite good. Shreya Ghoshal's rendering of "Alochane" song is sure to top the charts. Vaidhi's camera work is stylish.
Watch 'Romeo' despite some of its flaws. It is entertaining and engaging.
