Gadda Viji's latest directorial "Dyaavre", which hit screens on December 6, has turned out to be a money spinner at the Kannada box office. Besides critics and film goers, the film has also impressed Bollywood's film fraternity. National Award winning actor Naseeruddin Shah is one of those B-Town celebrities.

"The actor is being told about Dyavre by his friends in Bangalore. Now, he is keen to watch the film and has contacted the filmmakers to arrange a screening of the film for him. He even spoke to Gadda about the film. Gadda apparently has sent him the synopsis of the film. The makers of the film are trying to arrange the screening of the film for Naseeruddin in two-three days," a source said, according to The Times of India.

Apart from direction, Gadda Viji, who has earlier worked as assistant director with Yogaraj Bhat, has penned story, screenplay and dialogues for "Dyaavre". Set in prison, the film highlights some serious issues like current politics and police system. The film has five different plots which are well interconnected.

"Dyaavre" revolves around five individuals - an upcoming politician, thief, tribal, villager and an aged man. Having spent several years in prison, they escape from jail when the barrack wall collapses after heavy rain. The home minister orders for them to be killed. What happens next form the crux of the story.  Though the film is a complex web of stories, the director has good grip on its narration.
