Non-commercial films don’t come regularly in Tollywood, as formula-based movies do great business at the box-office. But there are few directors who have always stuck to their ideologies and do movies with moral values. Chandra Siddarth is one among the very few in Tollywood. After a great film like Aa Naluguru in 2004, the director couldn’t reach that range with his films. Now, Chandra Siddarth is back with the remake of super hit Kannada film Aatagadharaa Siva. The movie is out in theaters today and here is our take on Aaragadharaa Siva.

Many unforeseen consequences set up a fight between life and death. Will Babji survive? Will Aadi and Paru’s love have a happy ending? And who is the Soldier and how he plays a key role in all these lives have to be witnessed in theaters only!!!
Learning from the title – Aatagadharaa Siva, everything happens in the movie is Lord Shiva’s game. The plot of hangman traveling with the convict to be hanged has come out very intriguing. Director has adapted the conflict very well and executed it with a tight screenplay. Performances of Kannada senior actor Doddanna stands out, while debutant Uday impresses with his performance. The comedy scenes are entertaining with Hyper Aadi and Chammak Chandra leading the department. Though comedy works, it pulls the movie a bit aside from the main conflict. Dialogues by Muni Suresh Pillai and Bheem are too deep and appreciable. Cinematography by Lavith deserves a special mention.
Doddanna as Jangayya carries the whole emotion of the film on his shoulders. He makes an unforgettable mark with his performance.
Debutant Uday is good in his role, that doesn’t talk much with words but with actions.
Hyper Aadi gets a meaty role, and he utilizes it with his comedy timing.
Deepti has done a good job.
Chammak Chandra, Sridhar, and others have played fair enough onscreen.
– Brilliant performances by Doddanna.
– Hyper Aadi comedy
– Screenplay by Chandra Siddarth
– Dialogues by Muni Suresh Pillai and Bheem
– Emotional story
– Songs and music by Vasuki Vaibhav
– Slow narration
– Few comedy scenes
Aatagadharaa Siva is an emotional ride that hits your heart and leaves an impression even after leaving the theaters. The emotional content in the original version – Kannada film Rama Rama Re has been well adapted. Chandra Siddarth is successful in presenting the story of life, death, good, bad and many more values in human life. Being a movie that doesn’t run on routine formula, Aatagadharaa Siva will be praised by everyone who loves non-commercial movies. Watch the film for an unforgettable ride.
