Siddu (Praveen Tej) suffers from disorder that makes it difficult for him to differentiate between dream and reality. His biggest challenge is to find a girl willing to marry him, despite his condition. He finds his lady-love in Madhu (Shilpa Manjunath).
But then, when Madhu goes to Rajasthan to attend her friend's wedding, leaving Siddu behind, he becomes embroiled in a murder mystery. Did the murder really happen, or was it a figment of Siddu's imagination? Will he be able to lead normal life after all the drama that ensues?
Striker is an edge-of-the-seat thriller that keeps you intrigued. There are not many movies in Sandalwood which that revolve around disorders and are entwined with a murder case. This is novel attempt by director Pawan Trivikram.
The tempo in the second half keeps you engrossed and makes up for the quite ordinary first half. Praveen Tej is back with another performance-driven role after Churi Katte. He deserves appreciation for essaying the role with ease. Music director Bharath BJ has done a commendable job. Striker is worth watching.
On the other hand, Guruswamy, Anusha's colleague, has to marry village belle Shruthi (Swathi Sharma) against his wishes.
Despite learning the truth about Parth and that the foundation of their relationship was built on a lie, Anusha decides to try and lead a life with him. Guruswamy, who doesn't want to live with his wife as he thinks Shruthi is not the right match for him, is also forced to stick on with his wife.
But as it turns out, both Partha and Shruthi are looking for validation from their partners and fight to earn respect from them. Partha collaborates with Shruthi to start a mobile canteen, which becomes a successful venture, but that doesn't earn them the respect they expected from their life partners, instead leading to more complications. Whether Partha reunites with Anusha and Guruswamy and Shruthi lead a happy a life is what keeps one intrigued.
Fortuner highlights the complexities in today's relationships and how the young generation reacts when their expectations fall short. Director J Anivaarya deserves credit for adopting a refreshing approach that strikes the right chord. Fortuner takes you on an emotional journey that doesn't have the regular tropes of commercial films. The songs need a special mention. Diganth and Sonu Gowda have delivered their best.
