Disney’s first step in Tollywood,Prakash Kovelamudi – K. Raghavendra Rao combined effort, High visual Fx Theatrical Trailers raised the expectations on this film to peak level. Siddarth in the lead, Shruti Hassan and Laxmi Manchu Debutant’s in Female lead.Lets Check out the review..


Irendri(Lakshmi Manchu) a witch queen with exceptional black magic powers, with her powerful troops forces people of Angarajyam a tear drop shaped island with fear and deception to perform rituals to gain colossal power. Druki(Ramji) a man from Agartha village in the island starts from his village to Pushpagiri Parwatham to request a 9 year old girl Moksha(Baby Harshitha) a 9 year old girl from the asram in puspagiri parwatham to save kids in his village from unknown ills. Upon Druki’s request Guruji of the Asram sends Moksha along with Yodha(Siddarth) an extremely skilled blind swordsman, is the only one who can keep Moksha safe from Irendri and her troops comes to the rescue of the people of the island. Check out how Priya(Shruti Haasan) is related to the above and Experience this visual fiesta on screen for the left over.


After disaster like “Bava” it’s a perfect re-entry. Siddarth modulated himself a lot to suit the role of Yodha.he gave his best for the role. Shruthi Hassan, is perfect fit for this charming role. She is so cute in her looks and her chemistry with Siddarth works greatly on the screen. Laxmi Manchu , Luckiest Debutant no one can get a role better than her role as “Irendri”. Laxmi voice over for Irendri reminds us voice-modulations of Mohan Babu. Laxmi dialogs,ferocious attitude which gave Irendri an immeasurable power. Baby Harshitha perfectly suits her role.Most of the rest of the cast can take some time to register in your mind, owing to the costumes, but the performances are good.

Prakash Kovelamudi raised the boundary levels of tollywood with his direction.But he failed to maintain the same tempo in second half, but finally concluded it correctly. The visuals (firefly) are well-done, though there is a lot of computer-generated mumbo-jumbo, both in the stunts as well as for Irendri role. Sometimes, it looks like Prakash’s trying too hard to please the audience. Fabulous cinematography by Soundar Rajan. Songs are well in tune with theme of the film, Like always,music director salim-sulaiman elevates the mood of the film with their re-recording. Editing (Shravan) is perfect.

1. Predictable Storyline

2. Screenplay


Anaganaga Oka Dheerudu is predictable, But worth a watch movie for its stunning visual effects. I go with three stars.

Bottom-line: A Predictable Visual Treat..

  1. AOD,not worth watching,really,no proper narration,back ground music copied from hollywood movies!!! Costumes failed to suit the roles! Siddartha not apted as a warrior,Manchu may not get succeed to be an actress,Ali makes laugh like ever! Brahmi as a guest but waste role! As survi said..really predictable story,storyline is very weak,Sruti is sometimes cute,graphics’re not much better than Kodi’s Anji,arundati,deviputrudu! Finally…a bad debut for Walt disney!

  2. Disney’s presentation good, but story week, fantasy ga chupiste koncham baguntundi, Siddarth performance good & some action also good,andala bomma shruti hasan ki icchina patram neat ga chesyaru, laxmi performance nice, arundhati,jagadekaveerudu atiloka sundaari lanti mve cheyali asha to e mve cheyarani anipistundi, for a change graphic kosam movie ni family to oka sari chudocchu. music good, enka manchi songs pettunte baguntundi, ali, brahmi comedy andariku khchitanga nacchutundi.
    My rating 2.5 /5
