||The main factor that works for the film is the gripping narration which keeps you on the edge of your seats despite knowing the culprit behind the murder.
Another thing that separates IPC section 300 from other thrillers is that it touches an emotional chord too. You may even sympathise with the murderer while appreciating the brilliance of the investigating advocate. The intelligent handling of the idea from a debutant director surprises you.
The story revolves around Mallikarjun, a successful businessman shooting his infidel wife Sheela in broad day light in his house. He then surrenders to the police. The chief police investigator happens to be the person who had an illicit affair with Mallik's wife. Mallik who refuses to take the help of a defense lawyer denies his involvement in the crime and argues his own case. Vijay, a young public prosecutor finds this case intriguing and challenging. How he unravels the case in the face of the determined efforts of the murderer forms the backdrop of the story.
Mallik (Devraj) an architect is clever in covering up his mistake. He shoots his wife Sheela (Suman Ranganath) on the left cheek for her illicit relationship with a police officer Sharan (Srujan Lokesh). Mallik admits hid flaw to the police officer Sharan who arrest him. It has to be proved in the court of law.
As the prosecution unfolds, Vijay (Vijay Raghavendra) realizes that Mallik has done this shoot out with a strong purpose. Police officer Sharan is exposed in the court hall by Mallik further heightens the tense situation. At the same time there are some situations which take away the credibility of the story like the one where the prosecutor becomes the investigator.
Vijay faces defeat in the court hall and walking out from his mistake Mallik is caught in the last minute. That is when Vijay CID brain points to the exchange of pistol by Mallik before shooting his wife. Graciously Mallik agrees to the findings of Vijay.
The narrative is straight forward and keeps a brisk pace. The initial few scenes remind you of slick Hollywood productions.
