Right from the word go – the viewer is taken on a roller coaster ride full of ups and downs but there is never a dull moment – Blink your eyes at your own risk – for there is a significant chance that you might miss something really important. Of course there is one song in the movie that really comes across as a dampener and is my only complaint on the movie. Oh well, we do need it for the cigarette break. Don’t we? And we do need a smoke after weathering the onslaught of blood for over an hour.
The screenplay – I can’t stop raving about it – surprises and delights constantly. Things happen on the screen when you least expect them to. The camera angles are vintage Ramu! The background music score (Dharam Sandeep) & Cinematography by Amol Rathod are par excellence. The acting is super! Especially Shatrughan Sinha in a brief but very powerful role of a cinema actor who floats a political party and becomes the Chief Minister of the state. His role is the best written role in the movie and he has the best lines as well. Thundering applause every time he uttered a word.
Vivek Oberoi gets into the skin of the character Pratap effortlessly. Watch out for his introduction scene and pay attention to the audio design of the sequence. That is a textbook example of elevating the screen presence without resorting to beaten to death clichés like panning the camera up from the shoes of the hero. Three cheers to the director for conceptualizing it and a thumbs up for the music designer.Rest of the cast play their characters with aplomb. The guy who essays Bokka Reddy is stunning. So is Sushant who plays Pratap’s elder brother.
