Vajrakaya Story:

Vajrakaya is the heart touching story of a young man Viraj(Shivarajkumar) who goes in search of his mother. Viraj leads a normal life, and one fine day he learns that he was adopted. This makes him restless and he starts the search for his parents.

The first half of the story becomes essential as it depicts Viraj and his parents' flash back story. Whether Viraj's search fo his parents becomes successful and unite his family is the second-half.

Cast Performance:

The main highlight of the movie is Shivarajkumar's performance. The Badshah of Sandalwood has shared oscreen space with Jayasudha, she plays his mother in the movie. Shivarajkumar's all three heroines perform well, Karunya Ram and Nabha Natesh steal the show.

Shubra Aiyappa's character is more or less a cameo role. The comedy timing between Sadhu Kokila and Shivarajkumar is appreciable.

Technical Aspects:

Harsha's magical direction is the primary commercial element of the movie . The maverick director has proved that he is one of the best filmmakers of Sandalwood. Cinematography and screenplay go hand in hand. The movie occupies the viewers throughout.


Music by Arjun Janya is the main pilliar of Vajrakaya. All the songs of the movie are already a superhit in the market. It is 50th movie of Arjun Janya as a composer/music director.


A heart-touching mother sentiment story by Harsha. A must-watch for Shivarajkumar fans and one time watch for others. The mother-son role in the movie will bring in tears not only for Shivarajkumar fans, but definitely in every moviegoer.
