If a movie becomes blockbuster in any language or country makers focus on it and they try to bring it in their regional or particular language to make some money having a safe product in hand. Sometimes this ideology works and sometimes it hits so hard. Kiriki Party, which was a one of the biggest hits of Kannada film industry is seen by almost all the movie buffs and enthusiasts. Impressed by this it is now remade as Kiraak Party starring Nikhil Siddharth along with Samyuktha Hegde and Simran Pareenja under the direction of debutante Sharan Koppisetty and screenplay by Sudheer Varma and dialogues by Chandoo Mondeti of Karthikeya fame and is produced by Anil Sunkara under AK Entertainments. Let’s see how it works on us!
Krishna (Nikhil Siddharth) is a guy who is like a leader among his close friends who goes against seniors when they try to rag them. He happens to meet Meera (Simran Pareenja) and falls for her at first sight. He and his gang tries a lot to get Meera fall for one of them but with Krishna being team leader or something like that and for his enthusiastic moves she falls for him. They both roam, have fun and open up themselves when they meet but do not confess their love for each other. A day come for them to confess their love for each other but due to destiny playing a bad part in their journey, Meera dies in an incident and this instance change Krishna forever into a cold blooded guy. How he is changed as a better one by Satya (Samyuktha Hegde) is crux of the story.
Cast and Performance
Nikhil Siddharth as Krishna who has two variations in his role is superb. He is good in both the variations right from his look and body language. Simran Pareenja as Meera is good. Samyuktha Hegde is nice as Satya. Rakendu Mouli and other actors who acted as friends of Nikhil are good. Brahmaji is fine in his role as Mechanic. Deepthi Sunaina is okay as a friend of Satya. Hanumanthu Gowda as Principal of college is nice. All other actors are fine.
Story of Kiraak party is very thin. It is more of screenplay driven movie and dialogues by Chandoo Mondeti are nice.
Music composed by Ajaneesh Loknath who happens to be the composer for original Kiriki Party has reprised the same tunes for the Telugu version. They are good to hear. His background score is nice. Cinematography by Advaitha Gurumurthy is fine.
Stunts are choreographed well. Production values are rich.

No impact in screenplay
Kiraak party is story of Krishna from his first year to his final year of engineering in his college. Whenever someone remake a movie from another language then it is so common for audience to compare with the original. Coming to this remake, original version stands tall in every aspect and it offers a lot of entertainment. This Kiraak Party is a movie which is lost in translation and the magic that is created with the original version is lost in this version. Director Sharan Koppisetty has done an okay job in handling this movie. Chandoo Mondeti has done a good work with his dialogues adding fun part in them. The part of Krishna and Meera is superb and this lasts for a very short time and after that Krishna becomes serious by character and the pace of the movie too changes. The underlying message in the story is good and it is conveyed in a very subtle way. To summarise, Kiraak Party is a one time watchable entertainer for its fun part.
