A different tale, the story is set on the backdrop of Rajasthan and here comes Raju (mahesh), a taxi driver in search of a family. Here, he meets a TV channel crew member (sunil) and their conversation reveals the flashback story of Raju. In that, there is also his chance meeting with Subhashini (anushka) and how he ends up having trouble due to her. Meanwhile, in a small village of AP, there is Siddappa (shafi) who sets out on a mission to find the one man who is equivalent to god and who can save his village from sure death. After meeting Raju, he realizes that Raju is the man for the cause. And then, there is the powerful businessman GK (prakashraj) who wants to marry his son to Subhashini and has his eye on Siddappa’s village. How are all the dots connected forms the rest of the story.
Trivikram deserves special appreciations for his dialogues. ‘God in everyone’ is a meritorious concept. But a auteur should have opted for a most appropriate narration.Mahesh is probably more expressive than earlier, but the film is a little too unwieldy for him to be carrying on his shoulders alone. Anushka is about as useful as a mannequin, and isn’t allowed to be beyond one. Prakash Raj is more repulsive than campy.Cinematography by Yash Bhatt was top notch.Mani Sharma’s music was not great except for two songs – particularly the Om Namo Siva Rudraya song is absolutely brilliant. But re-recording in action episodes is good.
The main story is complicated, new and very difficult to digest for the audience. The concept of god is developed slowly through the second half but it is very superficial to human mind.Overall its good entertaining Flick.. But will be an Average movie at Box-Office.
