Jio Studios in its first venture breaks the pan Indian trend and caters to the audience’s wish by making a film that primarily focuses on entertaining the Kannada audience.

Kotee also has a collaboration between two very passionate storytellers, director Param and actor Dhananjaya.

Kotee rightfully symbolises this collaboration and has a refreshing take on a story that could have fallen the same old path of being a macho, testosterone-heavy action drama.

The film is powerful, smart, with a full-package hero who chooses to say no to going about the blood bath and gory road and instead sticks to his principles.

That said, there are a few elements that do hold back Kotee from being that flawless entertainer. One of the biggest reasons is the run time of nearly three hours.

Movies

Dhananjaya excels in a role that seems to be very in his zone, where he gets to showcase a range of emotions as well as do some action.

Movies

Ramesh Indira excels as the villain in a role that is more than just a one-tone bad guy. Abhishek Srikanth in a limited role manages to leave an impression.

Kotee is a visual and audio treat, making it a good watch. This has a controlled amount of action, with a lot of emotions and some comedy making it a good family outing.
