bairagee: Film review Bairagee: For the courts and the masses

The film Bairagee begins with a theater group led by Shivappa (Dr Shiva Rajkumar) performing a traditional dance in a village when a few miscreants create trouble and a lustful policeman (Vinod Kumar) embarrasses one of the female artists (Anu Prabhakar). Shivappa, as usual, beats up the policeman and lands behind bars.

After serving his sentence, Shivappa takes refuge in a police station. He happens to meet Vathapi (Pruthvi Ambar) who has a crush on Shobitha (Yasha Shivakumar). As fate would have it, Karna (Dhananjay), the chairman of a taluk panchayat, falls in love with Shobitha. Karna invites a minister (Sharath Lohitashwa) at a function where Shivappa and others were assigned to perform on stage.

Minister, however, passes on a girl but a teacher (Anjali) saves the girl. What happens to the professor and Shivappa is the climax.

When it comes to performing artists, Dr. Shiva Rajkumar is at his best. Her energy and enthusiasm in the dance and action scenes are incredible. He is at his best in scenes filled with emotion and feeling. His dialogues and body language are superb.

Dhananjay, who is sharing the screen for the second time with Dr. Shiva Rajkumar, did well. His performance as a shrewd and ambitious politician deserves a pat on the back.


Dhananjay starred with Dr. Shiva Rajkumar in the Kannada film Tagaru. Bairagee is the second film for him with Dr. Shiva Rajkumar.

Sharath Lohitashwa is compelling as a lewd and corrupt politician. Charath Kumar and Vinod Kumar as police officers provided good support.

Anjali and Yasha Shivakumar have no opportunity to show off their acting skills as their roles are too brief. Prithvi Ambar also did well.

Bairagee is Anoop Seelin’s 50th film as musical director. Among the songs, the Rhythm of Shivappa is the best

The choreographer and musical director deserves appreciation for this song which showcases the energy and foot tapping movements of Dr. Shiva Rajkumar. Director Vijay Miltonwho makes his directorial debut in Sandalwood with this film, did a great job.

It is sure to leave audiences happy as they exit the theatre.
