Godhi Banna bannerGodhi Banna Sadharana Mykattu (Wheatish Complexion Average Build) is a film that will stay with me forever! I never expected that I would write a post about a movie on my blog. This movie deserves all it could get.


Simply put, GBSM is a story about a son searching for his missing father. But, there is more to it. Hemant Rao’s story is well crafted with plots and subplots making every moment in the film interesting. Every scene is planned with utmost precision. Be it the cuts, the styles in narrating or the time lapses – every aspect is knotted with perfection.
Great job at captaining the ship!

Some highlights:

Kudos to the entire casting crew!  Villain of the movie- actor Vasishtaa’s voice is amazing and deserves a mention.

The dialogues are great and very well delivered.
Here is one:
“Have you ever observed that our stories begin in the middle of somebody’s story?”

There is a scene that must be watched for the way a particular dialogue has been delivered. Cliche, but worth watching for the way it has been delivered.

“Inside of me there are two dogs. One is mean and evil and the other is good and they fight each other all the time. When asked which one wins I answer, the one I feed the most.”

Sitting Bull

There is a scene in the movie where the love story of Shiva’s father is narrated. This is just storytelling at its best!

The element of thrill makes this tale even more fascinating. In addition to the main plot involving the search of Shiva’s father, the writer has a subplot that keeps you hooked till the end.

I was keeping track of the promotion and events of GBSM. Every element of promotion was well planned and executed. For example:
The title promo was released one year ago:
Another promo:


The way they introduced the characters is also amazing!


The team also introduced paper cups!

Music played an important role in the making of this movie. Charanraj’s music is a unique blend of usual and novel. I fail at words to describe his music. Do listen!
The tracks are novelties in themselves! The effect was well achieved through the background scoring too.


My favorite song is penned by the actor himself- Rakshit Shetty

I am so happy to share that GBSM has something in common with my upcoming book: ‘The Lively Library & An Unlikely Romance’.  I won’t reveal it here. I want the readers to find out the relevance themselves.



It is such a pleasure to watch movies like GBSM happening in Kannada! I have seen writers adjusting their scripts to the fit the budget of the movie.  I must appreciate that producer for fulfilling all the requirements and making it BIG. The role of a producer is important in lifting the script and he has done so, wholeheartedly!

Please go and watch this movie! Unfortunately, we have only one show in Belagavi. I am lucky to have made it to the cinema hall today. Tomorrow being Friday, there is every chance that the movie won’t be here. But, if you get a chance, do watch it.

And you have another reason to watch the film with your Dad: 19th June is Father’s day 🙂

Cheers to the team of GBSM

Thanks for making GBSM!
