Even as a high degree of expectancy is seen among Dr. Vishnuvardhan's fans about his next film Sirivantha, there has been a talk in the industry that the film will be a land mark in Sahasasimha's career and it would be best from the actor.
More than what fans perceive of Sirivantha, the huge publicity build up for the film undertaken by producer Rock line Venkatesh which is triggering lot of interest in the movie. Rockline Venkatesh has made many films some of which have been hugely successful and some of which have bitten the dust. But as regards to Sirivantha, it has to be said that he has taken some extra initiative to create a huge pre release interest for the film.
Firstly he is not selling the film to any distribution areas and has just allowed a percentage distribution in some areas. Secondly he has organised many previews to some celebrities of different arenas and has obtained their opinions about the film. Former Prime Minister H.D. Deve Gowda, Chief Minister H.D.Kumara Swamy, Health Minister Chaluvaraya Swamy, Actors Shivaraj Kumar, Raghavendra Raj Kumar, Ramesh Bhat, Avinash and many others have seen the film and have given some extremely touching opinions about the film. Rockline Venkatesh has also shown the film to much family audience to get their opinions about the film and he will be using these opinions to promote the film after the release of the film.
The studio and laboratory reports and opinions expressed by many people who are not part of the film industry point out to one thing clearly. Sirivantha is certainly a film that stands out for the performance of Dr. Vishnuvardhan and the directorial abilities of S. Narayan. Just every person who have watched the film say that the film will be a landmark in Sahasasimha's career, though the film has no action, but more of emotions ruling it.
Anirudh, Shivaram, Vishnuvardhan, Rockline Venkatesh says he has seen the film fifteen times and has cried all the times. "Even as a film it stands out as a brilliant technical film with a high range of performances from Dr. Vishnu and others. Dr. Vishnu sir is not a star here; he is a character who fights to retain his committed values that he practices. You will come out of the theatre seeing Narayana Murthy's battles to retain his values and not think of any other thing. Dr. Vishnu sir has molded as Narayana Murthy in the film' says Rockline Venkatesh. He also adds that Narayan has written some extremely fantastic lyrics in the film which will go well with the story.
S. Narayan Sirivantha audio album has already been released by the well known Ashwini Audio company which has been doing very well in its initial launch before the release of the film. Music Director S.A.Rajakumar has focused mainly on melody and two songs of the film rendered by Dr. S.P. Balasubramanyam ("Yaaro Yaaro' and "Megha Megha' have already become roaring hits.
S. Narayan says that after seeing the film he was sure that no other actor would have done the role as best as Dr. Vishnu.
Dr. Vishnu also had some great emotional moments during the making of the film and he poured his emotions along with Rockline Venkatesh during a recent projection of the film to the media reporters. The general impression in the media has also been excellent.
