Daruvu is loud yet entertaining
5 May 2017 | by See all my reviews

Daruvu is your typical action masala entertainer with a tinge of fantasy element. Ravi Teja(Bullet Raja) is a small time crook who falls in love with fiancé(Tapsee Pannu) of local goon Sushant Singh(Harbour Babu). Tapsee also falls in love with Ravi Teja and this lead to tussle where Ravi Teja is killed. On reaching Yamalokam, Ravi Teja gets to know he was supposed to be alive and was killed due to mischief of Chitragupta. To rectify the mistake Ravi Teja was sent on the earth in the body of his lookalike - a corrupt Home Minister, since his body was destroyed. How he deals with corrupt associate of this Home Minister and his old rival Sushant Singh and get back his love forms the rest of the movie.

Ravi Teja is energetic and as usual very good with comedy and action. Chemistry between Ravi Teja and Brahmanandam is the highlight of the movie. Tapsee doesn't have much to do except looking pretty. Villains-Sushant Singh, Sayaji Shinde and Raghu Babu have done a good job. The Satirical take on nexus between top religious leader and politicians is also funny.

Movie would have done better with lesser songs. At few places the pace of the movie dips. In terms of originality, it doesn't offer anything new. VFX are little tacky and fights could have been choreographed a little better.

Overall if you enjoy fun-filled Action Masala entertainer without much logic, this movie is a good time pass.
