Star Performance

Shivanna has given an extraordinary performance. For the first time in his career, he plays a visually challenged person. It is indeed a good attempt, to do varieties of roles. Shivanna fits in the role well and performs perfectly. His body language is also good. Vasishta had done a great job and he receives appreciation from the audiences. Isha and Kruthika are neat with their roles.


Although it is a remake, the makers had made a few changes to suit Kannada sensibilities. There are a few commercial elements in the film, which is not present in the original version. The dialogues are good and impressive. The BGM gels well with the script and the cinematography too. The climax is a power-packed one and the audiences are made to slide to the seat-edge.

What’s There?

  • Good script, screenplay and execution
  • Performances of the stars are excellent
  • Good adaptation to Kannada
  • BGM and cinematography are good

What’s Not There?

  • Some minor flaws, which need not be cared


Shivanna has chosen a performance-oriented script, which has commercial elements too. Kavacha is a real treat to Shivanna fans. If you are a film enthusiast, who loves to watch a performance-oriented script, then this is a good choice.
