13 January 2012 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Businessman is an action packed roller coaster ride and its Mahesh Babu's show all the way. An ideal movie for Mahesh Babu to hit the screens as the superstar took over from where he left in Dookudu. Typical Puri Jagannath's one liner dialogues coupled with Mahesh Babu's terrific action sequences hogs the limelight in Businessman. The film gives you glimpses of Pokiri and other mafia based movies like RGV's Satya but Puri managed to bring his own style of innovation. He has handled it very sensibly ensuring that there are no duplication of thoughts. Given the fact that Businessman movie was just made in 72 days, boy the output is brilliant and hats off to Puri Jagannath and Mahesh for making the movie in such a short span of time.

Businessman is a perfect mass masala extravaganza which satisfies the undemanding viewers. Mahesh Babu has strong screen presence that works to the advantage of the film. Puri Jagannath is raw, creative and daringly different like he usually is. When such a dynamic director gets the authentic acting support from his superstar, you can expect fireworks on the screen and that's what happens in Businessman. Mahesh Babu and Kajal give sterling performances to the shouts of 'action' and 'cut' of Puri Jagannath for Businessman movie. The result is that we have a massy entertainer in the face of stiff competition from other strategically released action movies this season.
