It is the comeback in swashbuckling style by Anirudh in an action film filled with sentiments, love, and comedy - of course a great tribute to Dr Vishnuvardhana in ‘Raja Simha’.
Anirudh joins the list of action hero. He has that fine potential to perform. He is so cool in jovial portions. He has great ability to deliver dialogues; he looks macho, romantic with Sanjana and Nikita Tukral. The presence of Dr Bharathi Vishnuvardhana gives a good lift to the film. Sharat Lohitashva and Arun Sagar plus Dr Ambarish presence in a guest role adds extra value to the film.
The Simhadriya Simha ‘Narasimhe Gowda’ of Dr Vishnuvardhana is very much prevalent in this film. The fans of Dr Vishnuvardhana will be up in joy at the arrival of ‘Narasimhe Gowda’ character. The statue of Narasimhe Gowda is also utilized very well.
He is Yuvaraja (Anirudh) son of Narasimhe gowda. His mother is running an NGO for the deprived children. As Yuvaraja falls in love with Pallavi he moves to Simhadri village. He is not aware that this is the place of his father. Narasimhe Gowda was brutally killed by Rajendra Gowda younger brother when the property was going to the hands of poor people. On knowing this Yuvaraja comes with his mother – Dr Bharathi Vishnuvardhana and settles in city.
The choice of Yuvaraja is Pallavi. She is none other than the close family member. To this Simhadri village Yuvaraja comes to complete unfinished task of his father Narasimhe Gowda. Rajendra Gowda is the biggest hardship. How he successfully wins the heart of settles scores with detractors is the end part of the film.
Anirudh, dance, action and acting is on top. Nikita Tukral and Sanjana Galrani are daring ladies in the film. It is a simple and humble role for Dr Bharathi Vishnuvardhana. Producer CD Basappa in an interesting role has performed well.
Director Ravi Ram has beautifully linked the subject to Dr Vishnuvardhana role in ‘Simhadriya Simha’. He is a promising director no doubt.
Jassie gift has given three lovely songs – opening song, song with Nikita Tukral and Sanjana Galrani are modest tunes.
KM Vishnuvardhana as cameraman has given right mood for the film. Actions composer gives some chilling moments.
This is a family watch film. Anirudh strikes brilliantly for the family watch.
