Storyline

Pandu is a killer for hire, and will accept any contract provided the amount is right. The Police want him for questioning, while the underworld needs him to silence their opponents. No one really knows this assassin's background. It is only Pandu who knows his real identity and he has no intention of sharing it with anyone. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Mahesh Babu's Best
26 June 2011 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Pokiri is like a saving grace for Mahesh Babu. If you want to see one film which will define an actor, Pokiri is the film for Mahesh. It's got action, humor and emotions that all count. His stunts, style and enigma sprinkle magic on the viewers. But, Puri Jagannath also gives us a good lineup of stars that include Prakash Raj, Nasser, Ashish Vidyarthi and Ileana.

In films like these, the female lead is supposed to be a stupid female who has nothing else to do other than romance the hero. But, Ileana's character has a story for herself and she plays her role suavely. The film also offers extensive story lines to several other characters. Prakash Raj explains how famous he is; Ashish Vidyarthi sees a connection between his wife and concubine; Nasser has a will of his own, and Mahesh incredibly fits in as the guy for the job.

With Mani Sharma's crackling soundtrack, Pokiri is a fine action flick which you can watch over and over. Dole Dole anybody?
