Garuda Gamana Vrishabha Vahana Movie Review: A mass entertainer which leaves lasting impressionsModified On: 20 November 2021 | Reviewed By: Team Moviekoop
Shiva and Hari, two friends who are polar opposites in demeanour, are the terror in Mangaladevi. What happens when ego, ambition, and jealousy creep in between their strong friendship?
In Garuda Gamana Vrishabha Vahana, Raj B Shetty announces loud and clear that he is a storyteller who is here to stay and make films that redefine genres and will entertain the audience at the same time. This film might be set in Mangaladevi, but the emotions and treatment make it nothing short of edgy world cinema.
The story begins with a brutal introduction of the two protagonists, the aggressive and hot-headed Shiva and the suave and calculative Hari. Their symbiotic relationship allows them to be the strongest force. Bramhaiyya, a sub-inspector who gets transferred to their area, gives the audience a peek into the lives of these two flawed, ruthless heroes as one gets to also see how he ends up crossing paths and being a part of their destiny.
There are scenes that cause goosebumps and one cannot but appreciate Raj's taut storytelling abilities. This experience is enhanced by his two main technicians, Midhun Mukundan, whose score is nothing short of international standards, and Praveen Shriyan's cinematography and editing. Garuda Gamana Vrishabha Vahana excels in its narrative of flawed heroes whose stories are narrated by a cop who was in the wrong place at the wrong time, leading him to cross paths with Shiva and Hari.
The inspiration from Devi Mahatme and the qualities of the creator, destroyer and preserver as seen in Bramha, Vishnu and Maheshwara, is beautifully adapted to the scenic locales of Mangaluru. Enhanced with the quirks of each character, and a cast that excels, this film is an experience that is best viewed only on the big screen. While it has its fair share of violence and a justified A certificate, the film also has a beautiful message in the end, which is not too direct or preachy.
The film undoubtedly belongs to Raj, whose performance is surely going to fetch him accolades, fans and awards. The fact that he ends up being a mass hero, without any dialogues, but in just clever storytelling is refreshing. Rishab Shetty as Hari is equally charming and lives his role. Gopalkrishna Deshpande deserves special mention for his nuanced performance and subtle acting. Each and every member of the ensemble is aptly cast and perform as required.
Shiva and Hari leave a lasting impression in a film that give you many chances to hoot, whistle and even get up and dance along with the actors.
