Ricky Kannada Movie Review

Critic Reviews- (Ratings Out of 10)

  • Book My Show | Review By -L Romal M Singh
The film is entertaining for sure and post-interval, the plot really keeps you glued to the screen. It’s the unnecessary need to bring back the hero, as the savior, that annoys mostly. The music is good, but most songs do not stick with you. Yele Mareyali by Naveen Sajju with Sudeep’s voice-over is heart-wrenching and a must watch/listen. Jeeva Neenu by Rajesh Krishnan also manages to strike a chord. Arjun Janya’s music does work for this film, though some songs are very unnecessary.

  • Bangalore Mirror | Review By -Shyam Prasad S
The love story takes precedence and that is what you expect in an entertainer. The film manages to raise the issue of naxalism while keeping away from making a controversy out of it. Rishab Shetty has made a good debut and deserves all the applause. Watch 'Ricky'; such films do not come by often.

  • Deccan Chronicle | Review By -Shahshiprasad SM Rating-6
The three stars of this venture are certainly the director, who makes an impressive debut by choosing a sensitive subject while attaching it with an obvious love story, and then the lead actors – Rakshit Shetty, who takes his acting skills to another level, and Hariprriya who is simply by far one of the very few actresses at present in Sandalwood who can perform in addition to looking beautiful.

  • Deccan Herald | Review By -S Vishwanath Rating-6
Finally here is a film that is off the beaten track and makes one sit and watch.
Rishab Shetty’s Ricky, despite its commercial mould, is a film with a difference. Set against the context of forceful land acquisitions for SEZ projects and Mangaluru’s mountainous regions as colourful canvas, Ricky is a riveting romance.

  • Times Of India | Review By -Sunayana Suresh Rating-7
Apart from the acting, the film also scores highly on the technical front. Be it cinematography, dialogues, background score, music or wonderfully choreographed songs, there are enough factors that work in its favour. If you like your dose of romance on screen, here you have a love story that has a mix of both candyfloss and rawness. For the discerning viewer who wants something novel, there's an interesting perspective on the naxal movement in the state. Go ahead, watch the film if you're keen on entertainment that isn't mundane.

  • Filmi Beat | Review By -Veena N Rating-8
Rakshit Shetty plays a wild life conservative officer in the movie. The simple star delivers good performance and he has given complete justice to his role.  The audiences will like his innocent performance as Ricky who portrays immense love to his lady Radha. The actor also delivers action sequences in the directorial debut of Rishab Shetty.

  • Cine Sinchana | Review By -Raju Shanbhag Rating-5
Make no mistake, the film is beautifully shot and it has its moments. The scene where Haripriya meets Rakshit on a lakeside after she has become a naxalite is worth mentioning. It has some catchy tunes from Arjun Janya and Haripriya does a neat job in a role that has two different shades. But it’s the needles songs and comedy tracks with Sadhu Kokila
