Anish is an aspiring actor. Although he wants to concentrate only on his ambition, his current financial position makes him earn money in a different way. He was directed to meet his client, who had a surprise for him. While starting off to that place, he didn’t know that he will fall prey to the situation. What happened to Anish? Watch the film to know the rest.

Star Performance

Anish played by Mahesh, had a large scope of acting and the actor utilized it well. Avinash, Samyukta and Gopalkrishna did a good job.


The story starts off on an interesting note with different characters with minds full of ambitions and the way to achieve them. The casting team has done a great job by picking up the right artist for the character. However, the narration should have been a bit better. There are some twists and turns and they are designed perfectly. Each character brings a twist and that helps the screenplay.

What’s There?

  • The story is different and the stars performed well
  • The scenes are interlinked
  • Narration is good

What’s Not There?

  • Small loopholes here and there


The film travels fast in certain places and a bit slow in certain places, wherever necessary. The film shows some relaxed situations as well as high pressured situations that make the audience develop a bonding with the movie characters. Arishadvarga is definitely worth watching!
