Vedha Movie Review
About Movie Vedha
Vedha is a 2022 Indian action drama movie in the Kannada language that was written, produced, and directed by Harsha. Geeta Shivarajkumar worked with Zee Studios under the banner of Geeta Pictures to bring the project to the big screen. Aditi Sagar, Umashree, Shwetha Chengappa, Ganavi Laxman, & Kuri Prathap will be appearing alongside Shiva Rajkumar in his 125th film.
Vedha was made available in theaters on December 23, 2022, two days before Christmas. It was a commercial success and earned both critics and spectators positive reviews.
A woman named Neela is subjected to harassment by a man on a bus as she travels to work in Mysore. When Neela returns home, she tells her retired inspector Grandma Raama about this. Raama advises her to read Vedha, a book that concentrates on the once-vigilante-now-hooligan Vedha.
The film discusses the story of the year 1980. According to this, Vedha (portrayed by Shivrajkumar) meets his daughter Kanaka (portrayed by Aditi Sagar) when she is released from prison and both go on a murdering spree. Three people named Rudra, Giri, and Nanjappa are murdered by them (father-daughter duo) while wandering from one village to another. They do this intentionally to take revenge on those who disturbed their happy family life. Vedha also stops the sale of two women as bonded workers, punishing those involved.
As Inspector Ramaa assumed control, he and policeman Govindappa started looking into the crime reports and came to the conclusion that Vedha & Kanaka were responsible. However, Ramaa comes to know about Vedha's history from a lawyer named Girija during his research.
Past Story of Vedha's Life
With his wife Pushpa and daughter Kanaka, Vedha's existence was satisfied and they all were happily enjoying their lives. Later, due to a theft by Beera, Vedha is imprisoned for three days. One evening, while intoxicated, Giri, Beera, Kalaiyan, and Nanjappa severely beat Kanaka. Pushpa, who is enraged by this, assaults them but is slain by them as a result. Kanaka is transported to a juvenile detention facility, and Rudra (an Inspector) aids in the destruction of the evidence. When Vedha learns of this, she kills the witness Chowdappa for lying, beats up Rudra (who survives), and flees the city, while he waits for Kanaka to be released from prison to extract retribution.
Present Story of Vedha's Life
After Vedha and Kanaka make an attempt to kill Kalaiyan, he subsequently commits suicide out of guilt. They visit Beera's house as well, where they decapitate his wife before murdering him. Ramaa appears together with Vedha's friend Daya and a sex prostitute named Paari. Paari reveals that Daya allegedly participated in the attack on Kanaka and was involved in informing Beera of their arrival. Furthermore, Paari had made multiple efforts to kill Daya, but he always managed to escape. To get retribution for the crime committed against Pushpa and Kanaka, Vedha kills Daya in a fit of rage. After burying Pushpa's ashes in the river, Vedha & Kanaka continue their vigilante activities.
