Babji (Uday Shankar), a convict sentenced to death, escapes from prison and finds himself travelling with Jangaiah (K.Jayaram). In between they meet love birds (Hyper Aadi, Bimbhasree). As their travel progress they meet military officer Sridhar (Sridhar) whose wife waits for help for delivery.
Babji faces extreme tension as all of them come to know that he is a convict on escape and carries a reward of worth Rs 10lakhs. To find out whether Babji survives from these people who get carried away with the temptation of Rs 10lakhs reward, enjoy Aatagadharaa Shiva on screen.
Uday Shankar sported beard throughout the film except during the climax and did not get much dialogues. He came with only single expression and did not impress much. K.Jayaram is OK with his role as a hangman.
Hyper Aadi attracted with his performance which is the saving grace in the film. His acts evoked few laughter but at times he went overboard. Bimbhasree is Okey as Aadi’s lover. Sridhar is OK and others like Chammak Chandra, Chalaki Chanti performed according to their roles.
Music of Nobin Paul and Vasuki Vaibhav is just average. Background score in the film is just ok. Cinematography is good and could have been better. Editing of Navin Nooli left a lot to be desired. There are many drags in the film which slowed the pace of the narration completely.
Director Chandra Siddharth should have added few more twists and turns to generate interest among movie lovers. Production values are good.
Couple of twists
Few comedy scenes of Hyper Aadi
Story, Screenplay, Direction
Director Chandra Siddharth decided to highlight the emotions and expressions revolving around a prisoner sentenced to death. He started off on the right note with the prisoner escaping from the prison. However the narration quickly drifted apart the director concentrating on narrating the stories and highlighting the emotions and feelings of the characters surrounding the prisoner. This did not connect chords with the movie lovers.
The slow narration, missing emotions, illogical scenes, lack of entertainment tested the patience of movie lovers. The film which is a remake of Kannada hit Rama Rama lacked the Telugu nativity and the listless narration ended up giving immense torture to the movie lovers.
Though the story of a fugitive and hangman travelling together is something new in the recent past, Chandra Siddharth failed to generate interest and the missing entertainment and commercial elements made the viewers run towards the exit doors.
Aatagadharaa Shiva gives immense torture to all.
