What an action cinema again from Puneeth Rajakumar, the power star is a transformer in this film. He is a man of steel and heart of gold – the basic requisite of a macho hero. MNK Movies M N Kumar has given a real treat for Christmas and coming New Year!
Harsha not deviating from the original script of ‘Poojai’ has added commercial elements with popular actors. When you feel enough of action, then he brings in action. The ‘Raja – Viraaj’ of this film Puneeth Rajakumar precisely shoulder the responsibility and how he manages to restore the lost glory of the house is the crux of the film.
Raja (Puneeth Rajakumar) is a money lender in the market. Geetha after knowing the grace of Raja who is actually Viraaj falls in love and it is not just love for Geetha but she continues to help him on many occasions in teaching lessons to goons.
When the audience comes to know that Raja is from the royal family of Raj Group of Industries the flashback comes on screen. For no mistake Raja is sent out of the house. For coming back to the same house opposite person responsible (aththe Magalu) reveal the fact to Raja mother (Ramya Krishna). The coming back of Raja to the huge family is a rejoicing moment in the family.
First thing Raja does is take the revenge that disturbed the innocent family. In this regard Raja is on upper hand. His mother also tells him to break the hand of those who touched the family.
Baira and team look for Raja rigorously in saving the life of police superintendent at a theatre and Raja in front of them. In the series of activities Raja gets the support of Police Superintendent (Ravishanker) and his lover Geetha also comes to some help.
For fight to finish Raja need to go to Jodhpur. Baira has reached this place where the hired killer activity is centered. Raja with twenty plus thugs around effortlessly finish off the gang for a family photo in the end of the film.
Power star Puneeth Rajakumar is immaculate. His action, dance, dialogue delivery and emotions at places are spectacular. Rashmika Mandanna is not just come and go heroine. She has good stuff to perform and comes out in flying colors.
Chikkanna, Sadhu KOkila and Giri have given very good comedy time in the film. They all appear as good relief. Ravishanker is a good cop here has given an easy performance.
Ramya Krishna coming to Kannada after a long gap and with huge name from ‘Baahubali’ is apt. Mukesh Tiwari is not that volatile and so is Akhilendra Mishra.
Cinematography of J Swamy is top class. Ravi Basrur as music director lent three tunes worth hearing again. Raghu Niduvalli and Chetan Kumar dialogue is well measured for all occasions.
Anjaniputhra is an avenger for all setbacks. Go watch this film. It is a Paisa Vasool cinema.
