Actor Shiva Rajkumar’s latest film Tagaru released today and has been receiving tremendous response from all around since the first shows this morning. 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.
Actor Bhavana recently had said that Tagaru had her in a smaller role and majorly focussed on Shiva Rajkumar. However, she agreed since it had the star hinself. “I first met him when he had dropped by on the set of Jackie. Back then, I was a newbie and when everyone crowded around him for pictures, etc., I kept my distance, as I did not want to disturb him. But the gentleman that he is, he came to me and struck up a conversation welcoming me into the Kannada film industry. One thing I noticed then is that the Rajkumar household comprises warm and down-to-earth people. When I then got to work with Shivanna on Tagaru, it was lovely. He is very excited when he is on set, and that is quite infectious. There would be days when I would land up on the set in the morning a bit moody. But then watching him move around changes your mood in a jiffy and you aspire to be like him.”
