Full marks to director A Harsha for handling a strong story that focuses on a clash between good and evil. It highlights a Good Samaritan's fight against illegal deeds of tantriks with a bit of romance, comedy and brilliant action sequences. Armed with an excellent screenplay, Harsha has narrated the story with extraordinary settings and art work by Ravi Santhehyklu. Though the movie is a bit lengthy, the sequences that follow one after the other keep you on the edge of your seat. Of course, there is an overdose of bloodshed which could have been avoided to make the movie sober.
The story takes place in a hamlet called Ramadurga. A tantrik makes life hell for the villagers by looting their valuables, raping women and killing them. Jeevan (Shivarajkumar) comes to the hamlet to know his 'Janma rahasya' (mystery of his birth). To his shock, he comes to know that he was the son of Bhajarangi (Shivarajkumar) who fought against the tantrik and saved the villagers from his harassment. But the intelligent tantrik gets rid of Bhajarangi in his own way by creating a demon in the form of a baby and makes Bhajarangi believe that he is his son. The story takes many interesting turns and twists with excellent action by Ganesh, Thriller Manju, Different Danny and Chandru, as well as with the black magic sequences. The fight between the tantrik and Jeevan in the climax is something that you can never miss.
Shivarajkumar has combined all his experiences to give a brilliant performance. Be it action, sentiment or romance, Shivanna is at his best. Aindrita Ray too is at her best throughout, especially in the climax. Music by Arjun Janya is apt for the story and quite remarkable. Lokesh shines as a villain. Jai Anand is simply superb in his camerawork.
