Pawan Kalyan Back With Panjaa !
10 December 2011 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Story :

Jai(Pawan Kalyan) is a Trust Worthy Hit-man to Bhagwan (Jackie Shroff) Who Takes Cares of Jai From his Childhood. Munna (Sesh Adivi) is The Only Son Of Bhagawan Who Loves him the most and Wants him To Get No Harm From Any others. Munna is a reckless Sadist who Cares Nobody. Jai gets attention of Sandhya (Sara Jane Dias) who is a Environment Tree Lover. Later Jaidev Gets a Situation due to Munna and Bhagawan Gives Order to Kill Jai(PK). Rest of the story is all about The Situation what Jai(PK) into.

Artist Performances :

Pawan Kalyan's Super Cool Beard Look Wid Awesome Set of Suits and Good Costumes Make Him Look Ultimate cool. His Performance is Extra Ordinary as Hit-man Character. Sara Jane Dias Looks cool in Classic Dresses and Has Done Part Very Well. Anjali Lavania is Good and Sexy in her Little Role which Suited her Well. Adivi Sesh's Acting is Perfect as a Sadistic guy. Brahmanandam is good as Papa Rayudu and gave some little laughs. Ali as PK's Assistant and Friend Does his Part Very well. Jackie Shroff Shows his Acting Skills And Makes Justice to his role. Atul Kulakarni, Tanikella Bharani, Subbaraju, Paruchuri Venkateswara Rao and Jhansi all Are Perfect Fit For Their Roles.

Plus Points Of The Film :

Pawan Kalyan Is Super Cool in His New Beard Look,Stylish Suits And Awesome Fights. Top Class Fights all over the movie and Stylised Interesting First Half. BackGround Score is Too Good.

Minus Points Of The Film :

Slow Screenplay Narration Looses The Interest From The Second Half. Some Little Rambles in the Story ( These Hardly Noticeable Like Character of Tanikella Bharani).All Songs Were Chopped as Bit Songs.That is Truly not Acceptable.

Overall Analysis :

All People Were Saying that the Storyline is Just like BALU. Who Ever Says Just Slap him and Say "If he is Playing a Role Below a Don Doesn't Mean That This is a Balu Again". Panja is Ultimate Stylish Cool Movie Which is Wasted in the Second Half due to Slow Narration That Looses The Grip Of Story. This Movie Will Work out at Multiplex's And A Class Areas. Pawan Kalyan Fans Will Be Happy. So Go Widout Any Expectations and Take Out the BALU sensation From Ur Mind so That U can Watch the Movie without any Other Secondary Thoughts. I Would Say Panjaa is Above Average. Not a Blockbuster though.
