Doddmane Hudga Movie features Sandalwood industry's superb actor Puneeth Rajkumar, Radhika Pandit, Ambareesh, Sumalatha Ambareesh, Bharathi Vishnuvardhan, P Ravi Shankar, Avinash, Rangayana Raghu, Sreenivasa Murthy and Darling Krishna have acted in lead roles. The movie was directed by Suri. Suriya and Nisha  are from Hubballi, Cable Balu is from South Karnataka and Rajeev is from Mandya. The story is how they are connected forms the jigsaw puzzle .

Star Performance

Puneeth Rajkumar's 25th movie is Doddmane Hudga and so the movie has more anticipations. The director has delivered a masala-laden entertainer with ample fights, some sentiment, a memorable romantic track and some peppy dance numbers. The  story is predictable and the twists too, but a commercial entertainer excels when it makes the mundane magical. This is where Suri's style, dialogues and characterizations work. 

Techinical Team

The romantic track is cute and gives leading lady Radhika Pandit ample scope to perform. She excels with her expressions and comic timing. Ambareesh gets a chunky role that will please his fans. Sumalatha and Bharathi Vishnuvardhan don't have big roles but are pleasing to watch. carries forth the film on his shoulder, which wavers a little in the second half. 


Doddmane Hudga is a must-watch for Puneeth fans and those who like commercial entertainers that have a good mix of action, romance, comedy and sentiments. Suri, who had a mammoth task to deliver a film with massive expectations, manages to pass the muster and doesn't disappoint. Puneeth Rajkumar's dance was amazing and awesome.
