Movie Verdict

Over the years, we’ve watched several biopics about a man with lofty goals who packs up his belongings and moves to the big city, where he must overcome adversity on his journey to become a successful businessman or political figure. The unconventional writing of this biopic keeps viewers engaged with a compelling story about Vijay Sankeshwar’s achievements. The plot isn’t anything special, but the atmosphere and ambiance make up for it.

Vijay Sankeshwar doesn’t really get going until the second part of the book when he starts trying to draw people in. The video’s most significant flaw is its awkward scene transitions. It looks like the creators didn’t really try to tell a story, simply snapped a bunch of photos at random. The director did an excellent job of depicting how the avarice and politics of rival company owners ultimately contributed to his demise; however, there are a few crucial passages that feel flat and uninspired. If the film had the correct amount of emotion, and if it had been placed in the second half, it may have been much better. Though flawed, there are redeeming qualities to the film that will draw in a specific audience.

Ananth Nag gives a fantastic portrayal as Vijay Sankeshwar’s father, and the rest of the ensemble is just as good. There are both happy and bad times in Archana Cottage. Regrettably, Nihal’s portrayal of Vijay Sankeshwar isn’t convincing enough for the role. The cast of “Baahubali: The Conclusion,” including Bharath Bopanna, Siri Prahalad, Vinaya Prasad, Prakash Belwadi, V Ravichandran, Anish Kuruvilla, Ramesh Bhat, Dayal Padmanabhan, and Shine Shetty, did an excellent job.

The film’s director, Rishika Sharma, deserves credit for bringing this obscure tale to the public’s attention. Dr. Vijay Sankeshwar, who was awarded the Padma Shri, also has an interesting and motivational history. The filmmaker of a film based on a true story nevertheless needs to exercise some creative license in order to evoke an emotional response from the viewers. Rishika Sharam’s film had certain problematic liberties taken with the source material. Some scenes, for instance, are unduly stylized in an attempt to appeal to the comedic sensibilities of the viewer. However, she was successful in capturing the interest of a few of them.

Even though Vijayanand is technically solid, there are few issues with the visual effects. Keertan Poojary’s cinematography, lighting, and framing immediately immerse the viewer in Vijayanand’s world and propel the plot forward. Despite the songs’ success in Kannada, their Telugu renditions were met with less acclaim.

Nonetheless, he did an excellent job, and the rest of Vijayanand is a well-written biography.
