Actor Duniya Vijay is back on the silver screen with his new movie Simhadri. The movie marks the return of director Shivamani after a break of five years. The movie is set in a backdrop of brother-sister relationship living in a village. The movie is basically a family drama.
The movie is the story about a guy named Simhadri (Duniya
Vijay). He is a son of a farmer in a small village. He is very
attached to his younger sister Nandhini (Aishwarya) and his cows,
and would do anything to guard their honor. Simhadri gets his
sister married to a wealthy man's son. However, soon after the
marriage, his sister is blamed to bring ill fate to the wealth
The movie takes a melodramatic turn. While the younger sister
suffers at the hand of her in-laws, Simhadri is unable to help her.
Simhadri has to convince his sister's in-law to reform their ways,
while making sure her sister does not suffer more at their hands.
Does Simhadri success in this mission, is the crux of the
The movie is very melodramatic and fails to make any impact with
the story line. Although the movie script is original, the story
feels like a old wine in a new bottle. The acting by Duniya Vijay
is average. He does salvage some pride by doing excellent action
Soundarya Jayamala plays the role
of Suma, Simhadri's wife. Her role has not much scope in the story
line and fails to make any impact. Actor Suchendra Prasad and
Ramesh Bhat have done an impressive job in the acting department.
While the story line of the movie is average, the direction and
edition fails to impress. Arjun Janya composed the music for the
song and this is clearly not his best effort.
The movie is made for family audience. Duniya Vijay fans will be happy to see him in action and perform some great fight scenes.
