Even (powerless star) Pawan Kalyan can’t salvage the fortunes of this sic movie at the B.O.
The story line is very weak and un-filmy.
A few points worth noting :
All the songs are un-situational save the first one where the hero is introduced (this hero entry song seems to have become a norm in our telugu movies)
Pawan Kalyan plays a country-bumpkin in this movie. But our Star has to showcase his refined martial skills; so we have an entire un-situational song where he does nothing but make some moves with (the Kushi) sword in air.
Why the hell did they have to have a talented actress like Asin playing Pawan’s love interest? She hardly has 5 lines in the movie.
Dubbing for Sandhya’s (hero’s sis) role is very bad. There’s a clear mismatch in her facial expressions and the voice of the lip-syncing artist.
Ramana Gogula’s music is pure ” GOLA” (telugu for HARSH NOISE)
The Villans are the funniest of the lot(watch the movie for their sake)
Venu Madhav’s funeral is so well shot… I thot he had gone for real!
Critical Points in the movie worth a mention :
- I never knew turmeric could be used so well for disguising the face. The hero smears turmeric on his face and kills a truckload of goons and guess what? no one is able to identify him because his face is smeared in turmeric! way to go!
- Apna hero on his first visit to hyderabad reads the MCH poster proclaiming a ‘clean and green’ Hyderabad. This phrase goes into his head and he takes upon him the personal responsibilty of cleansing the city from goons and making it clean and green again!
- There is this hilarious dialogue where a police officer unable to catch our Hero who is on a killing spree, comes up with a mind blowing idea. He suggests that the entire police department should take up jobs selling lemons because the killer (Hero) always leaves a lemon at the murder scene. So when the killer buys lemons next time they can nab him easily!
Lines from Hollywood films finally seem to have made a foray into our Tollywood films.
our hero assumes the alias ‘POTHA RAJU’ and calls up all his victims before he murders them and bellows into the phone
RAJU…. POTHA RAJU…..
reminds you of something ?
Ya… Bond… James Bond.
The bottom line…. A movie which sux to the core.
