Darshan's Odeya Kannada Movie Review: D Boss Mass Appeal Works
Kannada Challenging Star Darshan is back and how!
Kannada Challenging Star Darshan is back and how! His latest release Odeya had raised a lot of expectations much before its release. Darshan is known to pick themes on either based on action or family lines. This time he has chosen the comedy genre with a wee bit of sentiment. And the movie works. So is Darshan's Odeya a paisa Vasool? Let's find out.
Okay spoiler alert! This movie is a kannada remake of the Tamil hit Veeram which started Thala Ajith in the lead role. The Kollywood movie was a blockbuster. However, the same film acted by Pawan Kalyan failed to work in Telugu. Tollywood has a different taste altogether. So, does it work for Sandalwood? You will soon know. Gajendra (Darshan) is a man of few words. His first instinct always is to reach out to those in distress and protect his well wishers. He believes in giving people a taste of their own medicine and nobody dares mess with him. But enters the love of his life, Sakku who swears by peaceful means to resolve any conflict. How does Gajendra manage to woo his lady love? Does he sacrifice his true nature to become a sheep? Watch the movie to find out.
Star cast: Darshan, Devraj, Chitra Shenoy, P Ravi Shankar, Sadhu Kokila, Chikkanna.

Odeya Kannada Movie Review
The Kannada Version of Veeram is a carbon copy of the Tamil hit for most parts. The director does modify scenes here and there to make it appealing to D Boss fans. With all the mass elements like comedy, drama and action Odeya is a complete entertainer and a feast for the fans of Darshan. There's no denying the fact that Darshan's Odeya is a total paisa Vasool. The scenes between senior Kannada actor Devaraj and the hero are not to be missed. The chemistry between Gajendra and Sakku works well for the movie. Even though the Kannada remake is released years later, it still keeps the audience hooked from start to finish.
Odeya verdict: Odeya is a complete package for Darshan fans who will enjoy every scene as they get to see their favourite idol running around the trees, fighting goons and at the same time share some emotional family scenes. Put Odeya on your weekend watch list for it's worth it.
Odeya movie rating: 3.5/5
