What does Vijay do? Does he win his love back? Or does he let her go? This forms the crux of the film.

Story Review : 

Apart from being a little lengthy, this Darshan starrer proves to be an out-and-out family entertainer with a liberal dose of commercial elements thrown in. 

The film is a remake of the Telugu hit Darling, but director M D Sridhar who has also written the screenplay has made a lot of changes to suit the taste of Kannada audiences. He is pretty much successful in this attempt. 

Watch the movie for:

  • The main highlight of the film is Darshan. The actor who is known for his action and ‘Challenging Star’ image has done  a great job with this romantic role. With this film, he not only charms his die-hard fans but also the family audiences
  • The combination of Ambarish and Darshan is a treat to watch. The duo steal the show with their style and chemistry
  • The film has good cinematography by K K. It is a treat to see Switzerland through his lenses
  • Harikrishna’s music is good with three hummable songs

Skip the movie for:

  • The main problem of the film is its length. It seems to drag on tad too long and gets boring in parts. The director could have avoided some unnecessary sequences
  • The first half of the film where Vijay meets Cauvery in Switzerland, though entertaining, has nothing to do with the entire plot
  • There are a whole lot of characters in the film. But apart from a few characters, the rest have nothing to do in the film, except to sing and dance

Final verdict:

Bulbul is a good entertainer that can be watched with the entire family.
