After facing lots of problems for two long years, actor Arjun Sarja produced much-hyped and much-awaited movie Vaayuputhra has hit the screens. Arjun Sarja has introduced his nephew Chiranjeevi Sarja in Kannada films through late director Kishore Sarja"s movie Vaayuputhra.
The movie Vaayuputhra has two specialties. Firstly, it is the last movie of director Kishore Sarja. Secondly, Shakthi Prasad family"s budding star Chiranjeevi Sarja is entering Kannada film industry. The movie is a good entertainer with all the commercial elements like action, comedy and love story.
Vaayuputhra is an action-cum-love story. The highlights of the movie are debutante Chiranjeevi Sarja"s action and dance sequences, Andrita Ray"s wonderful acting, V Harikrishna"s music, Sundara Suvarna"s camera work and dance and stunts sequences. The movie is mainly a show of Andrita Ray and Chiranjeevi.
The movie Vaayuputhra is remake of Tamil film Sandakozhi, which was released in 2005. Directed by L Linguswamy, film Sandakozhi had Vishal and Meera Jasmine in the lead roles. Yavan Shankar Raja has scored music for the original. Vaayuputhra features Chiranjeevi Sarja, Andrita Ray, Sadhu Kokila, Arjun Sarja, Ramesh Bhat and Padmaja Rao lead roles.
After completing medical exams, Balu (Chiranjeevi Sarja) goes to his friend"s village to spend his summer vacation. He falls in love with his friend"s sister Divya (Andrta Ray). Meanwhile, he faces the rowdy of the village, Bharat Poonja (Ajay). After punishing him, he returns to his native. What happens next will form the climax of the movie.
As a hero, Chiranjeevi Sarja has done more than what is expected from a debut actor. He rocks the audiences in the dance and fight sequences. But he needs to improve a lot in acting to prove his mettle. Besides Chiranjeevi, Kishore has given lot of scope to female lead also. So Andrita Ray has got a performance-oriented role in the movie. She has used it and delivered extra-ordinary performance. As a naughty girl Divya, she really touches the heart of audiences.
After long time, Rebel Star Ambareesh has appeared on screen in a special role and rocks audiences. Producer Arjun Sarja has also appeared in a song. Sadhu Kokila, Ramesh Bhat and Padmaja Rao have done justice to their respective roles.
It is notable that V Harikrishana, who has churned out at least one hit song (O Gunavantha in Jothe Jotheyali, Modada Olage in Payana and E Paro in Raaj) in every movie, does not have a single trade mark hit number in Vaayuputhra. The movie has six songs and peppy song Bhagavanta Banda and songs line Baa Bare and Yaare Yaare are worth listening.
Sundarnath Suvarna"s camera work and Anal Aras" stunts are also wonderful. Their work in a fight sequence in darkness stuns the audiences. There is no artificiality in the dialogues written by MS Ramesh and Kishore Sarja.
The name Vaayuputhra stands for the superman Anjaneya. However, it seems that there is no relationship between the title Vaayuputhra and story of the movie.
In a nutshell, movie Vaayuputhra is good to watch once.
