Where did you watch this movie?

Suspenseful and thrilling, this fast-paced adventure follows the life of Vishnuvardhana (Sudeep), who pretends to be a doctor, falls in love with Bharathi (Bhavana), gets Rs 1 crore after picking up the mobile of rowdy Adishesha (Sonu Sood) and meets the rowdy's wife who wants him to kill her husband. He gets a police officer and the rowdy kill each other in an exchange of fire. The question remains, why did Vishnuvardhana get involved in this web of crime and deceit, especially when he is the son of the wealthy owner of Puttayya Laundry? How will he find his way out of the dangers that surround him?

When the movie went on floors with the title "Vishnuvardhana", there was a strong opposition against the usage of the title by some of the groups which was led by Dr.Vishnuvardhan's wife, actress Dr. Bharathi Vishnuvardhan. Dwarakish and his associate producer Yogish, struggled hard to fight the accusations. Finally, the title was altered to 'Veera Vishnuvardhana', later then finalised to 'Vishnuvardhana'.

This movie was made as a tribute to Kannada Matinee Idol Dr. Vishnuvardhan, who was a friend of Dwarakish.

P Kumar made his directorial debut with this movie.
