Regular Chiru pot-boiler
13 December 2004 | by AvinashPatalaySee all my reviews

We have seen movie with Anti-Corruption themes earlier (Bharateeyudu, Gentleman, Oke Okady etc). This movie is on similar lines however with a different weapon - youth power. For a hardcore Chiru fan, I am sure that this movie would be an emotionally satisfying experience.

The movie does manage to address a few burning issues of the country. However the hospital track could have been more astute sans humour.

Romantic track hampers the pace of the movie with unnecessary songs.

The comedy is good - Sunil should try over-exposing himself lest he might end up like Bramhanandam, Ali, Kota & Rajendra Prasad.

K Vishwanath, Jyothika and Ramaprabha are wasted in a minuscule role.

The "pelli chuppullu" track could have been easily done away with (c'mon guys lets face it - Chiru is not that young anymore!).

Prakash Raj abstains from being loud this time around. Sayaji Shinde impresses in his role which has shades of Shool (and noteworthy to mention that he mouths his own dialogues in Telugu).

The last time I watched Chiranjeevi's movie was about 10-years ago. I must prophesies confidently that 5-years down the line, we would be watching a standard Chiru flick comprising an opening solo song, an average storyline, two younger heroines with four songs equally divided amongst, Chiru wearing bright shirts and trousers in all the songs and of course one-man action sequences.

It is clearly evident that Chiranjeevi is imprisoned in his aura of mega-star. Age is catching up and he should begin his transition to move into roles that suit his age. It would ideal if he could learn a lesson or two from his contemporary Kamal Hassan about experimenting with various roles - and there is no dearth of unconventional themes. He has already reached a pinnacle and his fan-following will not diminish regardless.
