‘Vishnuvardhana’ is the life journey of ordinary laundry owner Puttaiah
son Vishnu (Sudeep). Vishnu wants to reach the heights in life and he is
very clever and stylish in his work. He happens to pick the mobile
phone of Adisesha (Sonu Sood) and usurp easily one crore of rupees in
two deals. Losing the mobile phone Adisesha is struggling because he has
many secrets in it – the most important is related to ACP (Muni). The
operations of Adisesha are diverted to Vishnu and the ideas to trap
Vishnu are failing one by one.
Vishnu in the meantime falls in love with Bharathi who comes to a
hospital to meet her match for marriage. Bharathi (Bhavana) never meets
the actual match is also bowled over with the tricks (fake) of Vishnu in
It is not going good for Vishnu and his friend Nimbehannu (Arun Kumar)
because they are caught by Meera (Priyamani) who fixes a deal to kill
Adisesha in one day. This is blackmail on Vishnu because Meera knows all
secrets of him. Vishnu agrees for it and on other side he is vigorously
At one point of time Laundry owner Puttaiaha son is asked to kill by
Adisesha by a doctor who is missing Bharathi in his life. By this time
Vishnu close to Adisesha to meet his end is given the task of killing
Laundry Puttaiah son – both are one and same Adisesha is not aware.
In the house of Adisesha the shrewd Vishnu knows the secrets of Meera
past. That is a flashback on the life of Meera and Adiseaha. The
opportunistic Adisesha gives up Meera for the lust of ACP. That is
primarily to remain as a don without encounter.
Meera is raped by ACP and that is recorded by Adisesha. He has the tool
to control both of them to meet his power always intact. This secret is
in the mobile that is in the hands of Vishnu.
Now it is time for Vishnu to put an end to the menace of Adisesha and
ACP. That happens in the market place where the bullets of Adisesha and
ACP exchange. Vishnu escapes for a happy ending.
Producer Dwarakish has set greater targets in his films in the past and
this is in a lower order. Except cashing on Dr Vishnuvardhana image and
satisfying the fans of Sudeep – nothing has happened in this film. The
name of Vishnuvardhana icon of Kannada cinema has come as a big help for
For the presence of Sudeep, Bhavana, Priyamani, music director V
Harikrishna this film is tolerable and as for as the story is concerned
there is nothing big in it.
The maker of ‘Aptha Mithra’ Dwarakish banking on the ordinary brain of director P Kumar is unacceptable.
For this type of story and screenplay there was hullaballoo from
Dwarakish with title of the film. He has promised to keep it as ‘Only
Vishnuvardhana’ but in the title card it is only Vishnuvardhana.
In the technical side ‘Vishnuvardhana’ the cinema is at lowest
standards. The cameraman, lighting in charge, editor have worked in a
hurry it seems.
At Santosh theatre four disruptions before interval is major bottleneck
for the flow of the film. When the flash back of Priyamani begins there
is a blunder. The cameraman Raja Rathnam has not been able to adjust the
height of Sudeep properly inside the frames. When the scene shift to
hospital the film looks lost in technique.
Coming to trapping of the mobile phone of the don Adisesha the latest
technology immediately traps where the mobile phone is laying. This does
not come to the sense of director till the two deals are finished by
protagonist. It is better this director P Kumar looks at the wonderfully
made CID television serial.
A biggest don Adisesha falling flat even when the actual person to trace
does not come before and conversing with him is another loophole
Look at the dog in the house of Adisesha that has gone to the era of
silent era of cinema. It does not bark with the showing of a lemon.
Dwarakish is also director and very knowledgeable. He has not seen this film in a critical view point.
The popularity of Dr Vishnuvardhana has been used at several places in
this film. The first fight reminds the ‘Aptha Mithra’ first fight.
Sudeep is in the same get up and style. Very often Dr Vishnuvardhana
name is used and a portrait of Dr Vishnuvardhana is in the Puttaiah
Laundry colony in the film.
When Sudeep uses his brain like Munnabhai MBBS in the hospital that
saves the pregnant woman child in the emotion filled time Dwarakish says
remembering his long time Dr Vishnuvardhana.
This is a film for the masses and details analysis would draw more flaws in the film.
This is not a challenging role for Sudeep. He has done still challenging
roles in the past. He looks superb on the screen and he does fulfill
the needs of his fans. The naughty Sudeep is what likeable from this
film. His dance and action is fabulous.
Bhavana and Priyamani strike in their roles not because of looks but
because of performances. Bhavana looks very sweet in the hospital scenes
and in the songs she has given her best. For Priyamani this is a
different kind of role that normally top heroines decline to accept.
Arunkumar, Muni, Ninasam Ashwath, Dwarakish are quite good in their
roles. Arunkumar in the company of Sudeep has given many funny moods for
the film from his dialogues.
The king of music today in Kannada cinema V Harkrishna does not disappoint. The same cannot be told for cameraman Raja Rathnam.
V Harikrishna title track is brilliant and choreography looks and
costume of Sudeep is mesmerizing to the fans. The club dance on money is
for the front benchers. Maye Maaye….and another song where the villains
also come in the dream song is well captured.
The editing and lighting in songs are good but not in the scenes.
For the time pass this is a tolerable entertainer.
Last but not the Least – Standards should increase like in the academic career not dip!
NOTHING MARVELOUS – SCORE – 2.5/5
