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 man's family.
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 story.
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 sequence.
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.
