Mahesh Babu All The Way
13 October 2012 | by See all my reviews

A slick screenplay + Mahesh Babu + Puri Jagannadh = Business Man

A combination that rocked the screens before almost created another blockbuster. The concept was new but for viewers who are not fans of either Mahesh Babu or Puri Jagannadh may not appreciate this movie too much.

The beginning seemed to make no sense but as the movie progressed things began to piece together. A few scenes with Kajal Aggarwal and her friend seemed odd in the movie. Kajal definitely overacted and had no substance in this time around. If her parts were cut out, the movie would have still been the same.

Mahesh Babu's new avatar is indefinably worth seeing. A charming and cute boy-faced man has turned into a rugged tough guy. He reminds audiences once again that he can carry any type of role with ease. His dialogue delivery was superb and his style was unique.

True to his words, Puri Jagannadh does make movies for the sake of making a movie. He deviates from his usual style and presents a different take on movies.

The cinematography is worth mentioning because it really enhanced the movie. The editing was awesome, making the movie quick and enjoyable. The songs are good too.

Overall, this movie is different and a must watch for fans of either Mahesh Babu or Puri Jagannadh. Those not familiar with either of their works may find it hard to understand.
