Aatagadharaa Siva Review: A Novel Take On Human Values

What happens when a prisoner who has escaped death and the man who was to have hanged him unexpectedly travel together without knowing each other? It is the premise of Chandra Siddhartha's latest offering Aatagadharaa Siva. The movie stars new to Telugu audience, Doddanna, and debut hero Uday Shankar. 

The movie is a remake of the Kannada film Rama Rama Ramare. Chandra Siddhartha who is sensible films like Aa Naluguru, Andari Bandhuvaya etc. selected a novel subject and improvised it fo Telugu remake. With mostly unknown actors, he tries to narrate the movie in a philosophical way right from the title. Let's see how the director fares with Aatagadhara Siva review.

Baabjee is a sentenced for death prisoner. But just a few days before his punishment, he escapes from the prison. On his way to escape, he joins a person on a journey. He is the executioner of Baabjee, Jangayya. The police announce a cash prize of 10 lakhs for those who catch the prisoner. What happens on the journey of Baabjee and Jangayya and if Jangayya knows that Baabjee who is the escaped prisoner forms the rest of the story. 

Doddanna who played the role of a Thalari or the executioner of the prison is a natural actor. His expressions and body language match that of such a person as Jangayya. Udayshankar as the escaped prisoner is great in the role. His acting, appearance, and body language are that of an escaped prisoner. You can see only Baabjee and Jangayya, not the actors. 

Chandra Siddhartha narrated the film in a realistic manner. As he had not deviated from the main storyline of the film, the movie generally moves in a serious path. So, to add a bit of relief in the form of comedy, the director came up with the subplot of Hyper Aadi which elicits few laughs from the audience. Rest of the cast did a fine job. The scenes between Udayshankar and Doddanna are well shot. 

The dialogues and the screenplay are very good. But the film may not appeal to the general section of the audience who wants to watch entertaining films. But it will be liked by those who want to watch different films with a novel subject matter. 

The music by Vasuki Vaibhav is good and the songs are good. The song Hey Krishna is cut from the movie for length issues. The cinematography by Lavith is atmospheric. Production values by Rockline Entertainments are good. The producer Rockline Venkatesh should be commended for coming up with such a film. 

On a whole, Aatagadharaa Siva is an offbeat film that may not appeal for those who want entertainment. But it may appeal to those who watch serious and concept based films.
