8MM Bullet is a story that focuses on the lives of two people, Karthik and Murthy. The interesting thing about this movie is that the director Harikrishna carefully switched the roles of the Navarasa Nayaka Jaggesh and Vasishta Simha. What this means is, the usual roles played by these actors have been switched. Jaggesh, who is known to play lighted-hearted roles has turned a baddie (Murthy) in 8MM while Vasishta Simha, who always plays goon kind-of-roles has impressed his fans by playing the hero (Karthik).
One thing is for sure, Jaggesh’s talents have shone brightly in this film. So if you are ever looking to see the Navarasa Nayaka in a different role, take a look at 8MM. Talking about how brilliantly this veteran played the role of a villain, his one line during the bank robbery caught my attention. He said, “Nimma duddige insurance sikh bahudu…. prana hodre?”
