A Family Entertainer
26 May 2019 | by mohit_sinsniwalSee all my reviews

Story : Story is about a son, Viraj Anand (Allu Arjun), who takes up the responsibilities of his family after the sudden death of his virtuous father Satyamurthy (Prakash Raj). Why Anand was forced to take up the responsibilities and what happens to him form the story.

Performances : Allu Arjun underplayed his character a lot in this film unlike his previous films. He is cool and settled. He is super stylish as always. In few scenes, his performance is top notch. It is truly refreshing to see him calm and composed. Apart from Allu Arjun, the true pillars for this movie are Rajendra Prasad and Upendra. Rajendra Prasad delivers one more superb performance and proves again, why he is considered one of the most versatile actors in Telugu Film Industry. Upendra is just awesome. He is menacing as well as sensible. His role could've been more. Samantha is good but her low-neck dresses appear little awkward on screen sometimes. Nitya Menen is nice. Adah Sharma has nothing to do. Rao Ramesh and MS Narayana get tailor made roles and they just cake walked through the roles. Ali entertains while Brahmanandam evokes few laughs.

Story - Screenplay - Dialogues - Direction : Story of the film is really nice. While most films now are selling on immoral and unethical heroes, this film shows the hero as moral, ethical and virtuous who cares a lot about his family and father in particular. But screenplay couldn't do enough justice to the point taken. Many times, the movie appears to be dragging. Trivikram who is known as a terrific dialogue writer comes up with another excellent work in dialogues department. Unlike his recent outings, the dialogues in this film are more sensible and blend well with movie. Direction is good, especially in climax.

Music - Background Score : Music by Devi Sri Prasad is mediocre. Not even one song is likable. He just recycled all his previous songs. But he covers it up with superb Background Score. It is uplifting.

Other Departments : Photography, Art work, Costumes are good. Editing could've been better.

Final Piece : This film talks about a person who is moral, ethical and virtuous who wants to keep his father's name high. It is a great point considering the present characterizations of heroes in the movies. I really liked the way Trivikram connected Rajendra Prasad's conflict point with Prakash Raj's actual intention, in the climax. It is very touching. There is one major comment on the film - Dialogues are not of Trivikram's standards and they doesn't have that Trivikram's stamp/mark in them. I feel it is completely wrong. A truly good dialogue writer always gives dialogues which suit the film and Trivikram just did that. He never went overboard. Take Attarintiki Daaredi for example. It is full of redundant and unnecessary dialogues. This film unlike Attarintiki Daaredi has more sensible and true to the subject dialogues. Plus points are Allu Arjun's screen presence and performance, Rajendra Prasad and Upendra's performances, nice story, superb dialogues, excellent climax and good background score. Negative points are bad music and ineffective screenplay. I would've given 9/10 if not for these negative points.

When it was released, it received mixed responses from both critics and audience (fans). But later when family crowds started coming to the theaters, it picked up pace and finally ended up as one of the biggest hits in the year 2015 by collecting more than 55 crores. It is a must watch for every one who likes in sensible and touching films.
