The film sees the actor in the role of an investigation officer, as he goes about solving a murder case
Kannada actor Aditya had a release earlier this year, when the crime thriller Munduvareda Adhyaya hit movie halls. Shortly after, though, the devastating second wave of the pandemic hit and theatres shut again. Now, audiences have another chance to see the film. “Munduvareda Adhyaya will come to Amazon Prime Video, most probably on Saturday. We are now looking at having it up and running by the weekend,” says Aditya.
When Munduvareda Adhyaya, directed by Balu Chandrashekar, had opened in theatres, it was mostly well received by critics for its treatment of the thriller genre without the regular tropes associated with it. Interestingly, though, Aditya and a few key members of the team had filed a complaint against a section of the media with the Karnataka Film Chamber of Commerce, for their rather disparaging online reviews, which the actor believed were not in the best interest of the Kannada film industry.
In a stark departure from his routine underworld subjects, Aditya was seen in the role of ACP Bala, as he investigates a murder case. The crime, though, has more to it than meets the eye, and Bala’s investigation faces various twists and turns before he can finally uncover what really happened.
Aditya had earlier said that Munduvareda Adhyaya was a subject that intrigued him right from the script narration, during which he constantly wondered what would transpire next after each sequence. The actor said that he took up the film because he believed it would keep audiences glued to their seats in anticipation of what will unfold onscreen.
At only 120-minute run-time, the taut crime thriller also stars Jai Jagadish, Mukhyamantri Chandru, Bhaskar Shetty, Vinay Krishnaswamy, Ashika Somashekhar, Chandana Gowda, Sandeep Kumar, Ajay Raj and Shobhan.
