Not what i expected!!
24 October 2014 | by rahulsattarSee all my reviews

I have seen this movie on my girl friend telling me that its a fantastic one, but it turnout to be not so fantastic.

The problem with this one is, it has lot of poems, which sometimes bores you, and may put you to sleep. What I felt was only Savitri has done justice to her character (Draupadi and Malini) no one else. Even NTR has done a great job acting like Arjuna but failed as eunuch called Brihannala.

Fight sequences were awful, hurried climax does add as a big negative point.

Movie really started on a promising note with a song in Indra Lookam, where Urvashi tries to impress Arjuna, but these songs might eventually give you headache. Sometimes the dialog delivery of the artists were so fast that I could not get to understand their names, I had hard time understanding the name of "Keechaka" the role played by SV Ranga Rao.

I don't know, if this was the best thing that can be done in those days, but this movie made me sleep eventually and I kept on looking at the timer to know when the movie ends like I do in HR classes of mine.
