Varadanayaka, much-delayed project, is an action film starring Sudeep, Chiranjeevi Sarja, Sameera Reddy and Nikeesha Patel. It is a remake of Telugu superhit film Lakshyam, which starred Gopichand and Anushka Shetty in the lead roles.
After working together with Sudeep in Kempe Gowda, producer Shankare Gowda decided to team up with him again and acquired the remake rights of Lakshyam. The actor did not have any qualms to work with the producer and gave green signal for the project. Then, Chiranjeevi Sarja was chosen and Sudeep's role was enlarged to attract his fans. It has to be noted that in the original version, Jagapathi Babu has a small role but here the Kiccha will be seen in the major part of the film.
In the early stage, it was said that Priyamani, who had worked with Sudeep in Only Vishnuvardhana, was approached but she turned down the film.

The highlight of Varadanayaka, which will hit the screens in more than 120 screens, is undoubtedly the action quotient. The fight scenes in the film has drawn the attention of mass audience.

However, the film has five songs composed by Arjun Janya for which Anuradha Bhat, Vijay, Priya Himesh, Chandan Shetty and Suma Shastry have lent their voices. It has to be noted that the music director himself has crooned two numbers.
While Rakesh has handled the camera, Ishwar has done editing. Looking at the trailer, it seems like the cinematographer has done a good job.
