A formula mass tale, the story begins with Fire Shankar (Vikram) who works as a junior fighter in films and aspires to be the number one villain. He comes across senior citizen Dakshinamurthy (K Vishwanath) one day and rescues him from few goons. Dakshinamurthy reveals his flashback and how his son (Avinash) is trying to grab his property. Apparently, the son wants to enter politics so the property is wanted by the minister Ranganayaki alias Akka (Sana). Shankar takes Dakshinamurthy to his place and protects him. In this process, he also falls in love with Darshini (Deeksha). Meanwhile the hunt intensifies for Dakshinamurthy and Shankar has to deal with the opponents. How he does that forms the rest of the story.
Vikram proves once again why he is an actor of class. His variety looks and natural performance is truly impressive. Deeksha Seth was there to fill the slot, she looks gorgeous as usual and did her bit as required. Kudos to K Vishwanath, he has given a splendid performance. Sana was a shocker, she not only looks seductive but also carries her role with aplomb. Pradeep Rawath was there for short time but made his presence felt. Thambi Ramaiah was okay. Aruldoss was apt. Saloni, Shriya, Reemma sizzled in songs.
Vikram's looks and K Vishwanath's performance
Not enough punch in storyline
Sequence of scenes
Weak emotional graph
The film came in with a lot of hype and this is the dubbed version of the Tamil film 'Rajapattai'. With Vikram as the hero, the expectations are high and many were expecting some variety. However, from start to finish the entire film runs on a particular formula and doesn't drift anywhere. The packaging of the film is good but the content is not upto the mark. At the box office, the openings would be strong due to the star power but eventually the film will fizzle out.
Verdict: Not upto the mark
