Jataayu Reviewby MyMazaa.com
Director cum hero Raaj has selected an age old story of how village heads terrorize people and make them to work to their favour. There is nothing new in the story which is old wine in new bottle.
It is a movie that promotes Raaj, director-cum hero. Though the script is good, there is overdose of action, though good, and violence.
Perhaps the director could have taken away some of the action sequences and a song to make the movie better. But the 'Kesaru Gadde vota' (slush race) sequences is excellently done with some brilliant action sequences.
Gejga (Raaj) is the centre of attraction in the movie. He takes on Doddegowda (Avinash) and Reddappa (Nataraj) who terrorize the villagers with goondaism. Gejga was rendered an orphan by village goons who killed his parents. Doddegowda, a womaniser, always aspired to spend a night with village girls. Once when he asks Gejga to bring a girl called Putti to spend a night with him. Putti is the daughter of a woman who takes care of Gejga. In another development, we have Sarasu (Roopashri), daughter of Doddegowda, falling in love with Gejga. Doddegowda's greed for women leads to the murder of three persons, including Sarasu. This makes Gejga to take revenge on Doddegowda and also Reddappa.
Raaj, though good, has to improve in dialogue delivery. Roopashri and Surabhi have done an excellent job. Avinash is amazing. Music by Vinaya Chandra is okay. B Suresha has some catchy dialogues for you.
