After Successful movie “Bunny”, Hit combination V.V.Vinayak – Allu Arjun teams up again for Badrinath in a commercial flick to be produced by hit maker Allu Aravind under the banner of Geetha Arts. Tammana will pair for the first time with Allu Arjun. Better not wasting our time lets get on with review…
Bheeshma Narayan (Prakash Raj) trains the youth to protect the Indian temples.Badrinath (Allu Arjun) gets trained under him and gets the responsibility of Badrinath temple. Alakananda (Tamanna) who is a non believer of god,comes to temple with her grandfather.She falls in love with Badrinath.The rest of the movie is about how he wins in his love and also keep his word to master.
Allu Arjun seen at his best and you couldn’t have asked more, his dance moves were incredible. Tamannah is in top form in this movie. She is definitely a pleasure to watch for her glamorous role. Prakash Raj looked good and acted well in Bheesma Narayan role. Some comedy scenes enacted by Brahmanandam & Krishna Bhagwan were admirable but doesn’t keep you amused for long. Kelly Dorjee, Tanikella Bharani, Kovai Sarala, Dharamvarapu Subramanyam delivered what they were asked to.
M.M.Keeravani sound track for this film is distinctly liked in the background score that upgraded a few scenes in the movie. Allu Aravind has spent lavishly on Badrinath, and it can be seen visually in different locations. Ravi Varman’s cinematography and Anand Sai’s art work need a special mention. Editor should have taken extra care as some scenes seem to jump. V.V.Vinayak attempted a varied concept but should have taken care of the execution part.
*Hero Kangaroo Jumps from hill to save Tamannah’s Grand Pa.
*When all were wearing traditional dresses in badrinath our hero especially wears jeans.
*Where were all the cops in Badrinath, are they removed from their jobs after appointing Allu arjun as Saviour of Badrinath.
* Allu Arjun at amaranth fight sequence, where fight master tries to prove sword is mightier than Ak47’s.
First half of the film is pretty slow and is average… The movie falls flat in the second half due to predictable screenplay and Climax. Over all, it’s a below average flick that can be watched at your leisure.
Survi Verdict: Half-baked pie
