The film may be liked by some and criticized by some hardcore critics. But when the director has boldly attempted such a theme, he should be ready for such criticism. The suicide of students due to pressure is also presented in this film. Though the first half is quite dragging the second half picks up gear. The hard-hitting reality of today’s society is shown beautifully in this film.
Poornachandra Tejaswi’s music is ok.
Verdict: Vascodigama is an “enlightening” film for the youth. It can be watched by parents too.
