Vijay Anand is scripted and directed by Rishika Sharma. It is a biographical film about Vijay Sankeshwar, who owns VRL Logistics Limited, one of the largest logistics firms in India. The film features, “V. Ravichandran,” “Nihal R,” Bharat Boppannah, Anant Nag, Vinaya Prasad, Prakash Belawadi, Anish Kuruvilla, Siri Prahlad, Rajesh Nataranga, Dayal Padmanabhan, Archana Kottige, Vidya Murthy, Umesh Banakar, and Shine Shetty. Anand Sankeshwar produced the film. Keertan Poojary handled the camera, and Hemanthkumar was the editor. Gopi Sundar composed the music.


Vijay Sankeshwar is the son of Basavanneppa Sankeshwar, who is popular in the printing business, and Chandrawwa. The film speaks about how Vijay modernized his dad’s printing business and how he started the logistics business with just a single truck in his hand. It also showcases his family members, who had been a significant part of his personal and business lives.

Star Performance

Nihal tried a lot to play his part well. Anant Nag, the versatile actor, fits perfectly as Basavanneppa Sankeshwar, and Bharat is impressive in his role as Anand Sankeshwar. The rest of the cast has done justice to the given roles.


As Vijay Sankeshwar’s family produced the film, the film didn’t show any negatives, such as controversies faced by the entrepreneur turned politician. Rishika Sharma tried her level best to make the movie enjoyable. However, the screenplay needs some more gripping moments. Gopi Sundar’s music is decent. The visuals are good, and the production design in the first half of the film is impressive.

What’s There?

  • A few performances and music are the plus points

What’s Not There?

  • Weak screenplay and execution
  • Certain scenes lack some cinematic elements


Though the director tried to make an exciting film without exaggerating, the film needed some cinematic elements to impress the audience. If you love watching biopics and if you know Vijay Sankeshwar, you would love to watch the movie.
