Duniya Vijay is back in a new avatar! The actor's maiden directorial venture Salaga has just hit the theatres. Jointly written by Vijay and Maasthi Upparahalli, the film revolves around a person who is pulled into the realm of the underworld. How he is brought to justice by an upright cop, forms the crux of the story.
After having made waves on the internet with its teaser (released on January 20), the film has now garnered immense attention from the netizens and it is all thanks to the favourable reviews on social media. Fans and general audiences seem to have enjoyed the film to the fullest, as it gets appreciation and praise from all corners. The intense acting chops of Duniya Vijay and Dhananjay have been getting terrific responses from audiences. The mind-boggling action sequences and background score are also being lauded. However, the slow-paced and routine storyline is said to have led down the film at places.
Backed by KP Srikanth under Venus Entertainer, the film stars Sanjana Anand as the leading lady. The other supporting cast of the film are BV Bhaskar, Nagabhushan, Achyuth Kumar and Rangayana Raghu. The action entertainer's music and the background score have been composed by Naveen Sajju and Charan Raj. Shiva Sena has cranked the camera for Salaga.
