The film starts off with a court, setting up a jury of 10 people from various walks of life, to decide on the case of a youngster who is charged of killing his father. The board is locked in a room and is asked for a report by evening. They start off the discussion and arrive at a consensus at one point of time. Just when everybody seems to be in agreement to convict the youth for the murder of his father, there is at least one in the room with a different perspective. A heated discussion follows and what happens next forms the crux of the story.

When the likes of Ravichandran, Ananthnag, Devaraj, Saritha and Avinash come together the expectations are naturally sky-high. But this week’s release Dashamukha falls flat of all those expectations, and proves to be nothing more than an ordinary flick, with a lot of good talent wasted.
Though the one-liner of the film sounds pretty exciting, the film has its own pros and cons. Frankly speaking the film has more cons than pros. Here goes…
You can watch this movie for:
- Well-executed performance from artistes like Ananthnag, Devaraj and Avinash, which is a treat to watch. Saritha, Malavika, Achyuth and Dattanna are also do justice to their roles.
- The film though has a bad and boring screenplay it does have some interesting moments which are worth a watch.
You can skip this movie for:
- Ravichandran, the Crazy Star looks lost in a bunch of talented actors and appears sober and exhausted as always.
- The major drawback of the film is the screenplay. It’s very hard to keep the viewers glued to their seats in this kind of Courtroom drama. But yet director Ravi Srivatsa could have at least attempted to make a decent screenplay. The film is made in a short span and with a limited budget which reflects clearly on screen.
- The reason for the murder is illogical and doesn’t click with the audience.
- Chetan has nothing to do in this film. His language and dialogue delivery is not only childish but also bookish.
- These genres of films don’t necessarily need any songs. But director Ravi deviates from the script and brings in a song at the pre climax stage, which is totally out of the place.
The film does not live up to expectations. It is a one-time watch, not for the story or screenplay but just to see 10 talented people sharing screen space with each other.
