Panjaa Strikes!
11 December 2011 | by shreyash015See all my reviews

Pawan Kalyan ever since his debut has been an icon for many people. Every movie of his has something different. Panjaa directed by Vishnu Vardhan is an extremely slick and stylish entertainer. Never before seen action sequences and cinematography can be observed in the movie. All actors including the new faces like Sarah Jane, Anjali Lavania and Advi Sesh have done extremely well by fitting into their characters perfectly. All though movie is a one man show with Pawan Kalyan sporting a new look and extremely stylish costumes. All video songs have been shot impressively well. The title track is the one to watch out for. Pawan Kalyan shaking his leg to it makes it all the more awesome.

Music director Yuvan deserves appreciation for amazing notes and background score in the movie. All though there was immense hype before the release of the movie, Panjaa has well enough stood the ground and stood up to the expectations. The movie is a feast for Power Star Pawan Kalyan fans. Movie lovers will love the high technical standards of the movie. Overall the movie is an extremely stylish and well directed movie. Do not miss watching it to see how the technical standards in Telugu cinema have risen. Also glad that Pawan Kalyan is back with a blockbuster.
