Shivarajkumar’s Tagaru release over a month ago and has been doing decent business all around. With a huge opening on day 1, Tagaru received mixed response from fans of Shivanna given the kind of treatment the film had. Critics and industry insiders gave thumbs up to the film which was directed by Suri and had Shivarajkumar playing a cop. The latest addition to the list of admirers of Tagaru is controversial filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma who took to Twitter to express how impressed he was with the film. RGV in a series of tweets praised the film and the actors Manvitha Harish and Dhananjaya in his tweets. “Just watched the Avant-garde vision of the extraordinary director Suri’s Kannada blockbuster #Tagaru of Shiv Raj kumar  @ManvithaHarish is not just an actress but she is pure electricity in her ability to shock(but pleasently)  @Dhananjayaka redefines menace,” wrote Ram Gopal in one of his tweets.

Ram Gopal Varma seems to be very impressed with the young actor Manvitha Harish’s acting skills that he says he has signed her on for one his upcoming films. “After seeing #Tagaru i signed @ManvithaHarish by giving a token advance but with a commitment that I will pay her 10 lakhs more than whatever she will demand as her final remuneration ..I also requested director Suri to do a film produced by me,” RGV said in another tweet.

The film has received mixed response from all around with few urban centers witnessing good response over the weekend. Fans of the star are reportedly unhappy with few scenes where the antagonist uses abusive language against Shivarajkumar. This has led to mixed response at the box office but has stayed steady at many centers.

Directed by Suri, Tagaru has Shiva Rajkumar playing a cop yet again. However, what has been done differently is that the narration of the story. It’s the routine cop-rowdy story that Tagaru boosts of however, it’s the way it is told that has made the audience love it. Dhananjaya as the menacing bad guy makes a huge impact. Despite being a run of the mill story, Tagaru is drawing audiences to the theatre. Devraj, Bhavana and Manvita have shorter length roles however they do contribute to the narrative. Overall, Tagaru seems to have connected well with the audience and seems to be turning out to be a hit.
