Ramayya (Shivarajkumar) is looking for a mystery man. We are later introduced to India’s most wanted criminal Kaizen Ram (Sudeep), who is now on his way to conquer the London underworld. Twists and turns reveal that Kaizen Ram is not just one person but two - Kaizen and Ram. Who is the other villain? Who is Ram and why is Ramayya is looking for him? This forms the crux of the film.
Shivanna as Ramayya, who is from a village, is apt in his role. We are often reminded of his trendsetting roles, Jogi and Jogayya, in the first half. Sudeep, on the other hand, with his unique hairstyles, steals the show. Sudeep has excelled in his role as villain. Amy Jackson is there as a glam doll but has a lesser screen space and just gets 20 plus minutes including songs. Bollywood actor Mithun Chakravarthy adds the star attraction. He plays senior police officer Bramhavaram, Amy's Father. Telugu actor Srikanth speaks his own dialogues and it is good to watch on screen. Saranya Ponvannan is apt in role. Though Shivaraj Kumar and sudeep shares screen space for the first time they are seen together for just 15 minutes.
In director Prem's Filmm almost it consists of mother sentiment mix and The Villain is no exception. Prem writing does not macth up to the hype created to the movie. When two stars sharing screen space for the first time, there should be brilliant storyline with an equivalent screen treatment. Though few sequences and heroism elevations have been worked out really well which offers a treat to Shivarajkumar and Sudeep fan base respectively. But at the end director was not capitilaize the great opportunity with two actors. Arjun Ajanya music is highlight to film. /p>
Watch only for sudeep
