Arjun Reddy is life and not just a movie
2 September 2017 | by rutwik_reddySee all my reviews

Disclaimer: Not for telugu movie lovers who want 4 songs, 3 fights, couple of high budget sequences and 1 freaking mega family hero.

This movie is an awesome mirror to how the present generation in India is. The story line, screenplay and the BGM are top notch.

Movie starts off with the main character looking shoddy (like a modern day devadas) and his only intention is to flirt, f*** and finish off. it is only when you slowly slip into the movie that you realize that either you or one of your friends from college is of the same type. Anger management is the main theme of the movie and the director intelligently shows the difference in mindset of the character per and post falling in love.

The supporting actors are like the friends of ours who are like shoulders to cry on or sit accordingly

Got to give credits to the Director for running the movie for full 3 hours without the distracting love duets/mass songs ( saved 25 mins of his time to convey the story better)

The subject line is raw and to the point with the plot revolving only around the hero. At no point one feels bored (unless someone doesn't like the plot all together).

BGM by the music director is amazing. it goes slowly and smoothly with the mood of the movie

Main let down would be the climax: which looked hurried and commercialized for the movie buffs
