National Award winner Sanchari Vijay has portrayed various kinds of roles in his previous films and this is the first time, he is seen in a flamboyant role in 'Padarasa'.
Sanchari Vijay plays the title character of Padarasa in the movie. Padarasa is one character who will do anything for money. Padarasa manages to woo many people with his smartness and squeeze money out of them. He does all this to enjoy life. Meanwhile, he falls in love with Sarika (Vaishnavi Menon). What happens next forms the crux of the film.
The first half of the film is engaging and moves fastly. However, the second half of the film is a bit slow. In spite of that, the film manages to engage the audience with its commercial elements.
The highlight of the film is however Sanchari Vijay. As told earlier, Vijay plays a flamboyant character and manages to woo the audience with his performance. Vaishnavi Menon is good. Other supporting artistes including Niranjan Deshpande, Bhavya, Jaijagadish, Shobharaj have done their bit neatly. Music by A T Ravish is good.
