Duniya Vijay, Dr. Bharathi, Rangayana Raghu, Kalyani
This movie is for die-hard fans of Duniya Vijay and he will not disappoint them. The actor has made an amazing comeback in a tailor made script, that showcases his acting talent. It had been quite some time since anybody saw Vijay in this avatar. Vijay?s movies are meant for the masses and this movie will be leisurely lapped up by the audiences in ?B? and ?C? centres.
Vijay and his mother Jayamma (Kalyani) live near a temple. While his mother is highly religious, Vijay assists the temple priest (Ne La Narendra Babu) in exorcism. In the process, Vijay meets his love (Dr Gayathri), whom vested interests are keen on sacrificing. The plot takes an interesting turn subsequently to reveal that the reason behind Vijay and her mother living near the temple is something else.
Vikas, who worked in acclaimed director Yogaraj Bhat?s camp, has written a script, which suits only Vijay. The plot is meant for Vijay?s personality only and the actor has lived up to the expectations. The actor is brilliant in certain scenes and reminds the audience of his debut Duniya movie.
TV artiste Kalyani too excels in her role. It is Rangayana Raghu, however, who seems to have gone overboard. Any movie featuring Vijay and Raghu is interesting to watch, particularly the interaction between them. But in Jayyammana Maga, Raghu?s character becomes an irritating factor in the plot. Dr Gayathri looks convincing in her debut movie.
Arjun Janya disappoints in the music but nullifies it through a brilliant background score. The movie falls into horror-thriller and of late top stars have not been seen in such projects. Vijay has certainly made a bold attempt through his maiden home production, and it will be a landmark movie in his career.
Time pass comedy entertainer
Average comedy entertainer
Decent rural family entertainer
Soubin Shahir and Mamta Mohandas shine in this conventional film
