  • Shivalinga Movie Review

    shivalinga image

    Shivalinga is a complete entertainer. It is basically a murder mystery. But there are loads of comedy, suspense and horror packed in the 151 minutes. P Vasu packages the film as an entertainment bonanza. An engrossing storyline combined with great acting and edge-of-the seat suspense makes Shivalinga a must watch.

    The film starts with a murder on a train. The man is a Muslim and he is engaged to be married to a Hindu girl. The case is closed as a suicide but the girl forces it to be reinvestigated. Shiva, a CID officer steps in. Everyone becomes a suspect in the case. Strangely, Shiva's new wife also gets involved in the case. But what does she have to do with it? The ghost of the dead man also comes back seeking to know who killed him and why. It is a great mix of fun, horror and suspense from then on. How Shiva manages to find the real culprit and save his wife from the ghost forms the rest of the story.

    Apart from the gripping story and narration what the film promises and delivers is excellent acting by the actors including Shivanna, Vedhika, Sadhu Kokila, Shakti P Vasu, Urvashi, Vinaya Prasad, Avinash and others. PKH Das has done some superb photography and manages to give the film a fantastic look. Music by Harikrishna is also pleasing and is a perfect foil to the rest of the film which is full of suspense. 

    This film also showcases Shivanna's talent to the fullest extent. It is not only in commercial elements like fighting and dancing but also in showing his performance, the film has become a showcase for him. He makes it look so real. Vedhika as the terrified wife and also as the terrifying possessed woman is awesome. This film is for everyone to enjoy. Great show by director P Vasu.

    Chitraloka Rating - 3.5/5

  • Shivanna Deleted Talking Kannada in Tamil and Telugu Killing Veerappan Promos

    killing veerappan image

    The trailer launch of Killing Veerappan on Shivarajkumar's birthday today had some surprise in store. Not only has director Ram Gopal Verma released the trailer in Kannada but also Tamil and Telugu today confirming that the film is being made in all three languages.


    This will be the first time that a Rajkumar family actor will be seen in Tamil and Telugu films. But from the promos themselves it seems portions involving Shivanna may be dubbed in other languages. In the Kannada promo Shivanna can be seen talking in Kannada. In the Tamil and Telugu versions, Shivanna talking in Kannada towards the last few seconds has been deleted.

    Another speculation is that the characters may speak Kannada and Tamil depending on the situation as hunt for Veerappan was by both Karnataka and Tamil Nadu. But that still leaves out Telugu in which both Kannada and Tamil will have to be dubbed. As of now it seems Shivanna has acted only in Kannada version.
