After the two successive love entertainers Ye maya Chesave and 100% Love, this time Naga Chaitanya is trying for different image with this new movie Dhada. He has already proved himself for the lover boy roles with his last two movies. This time he is trying to prove as action and mass hero as well.
Vishwa (Naga Chaitanya) and Rajeev (Sriram) are brothers. Vishwa, who is an adventurous NRI, saves a girl from a drug gang which in turn affects the multi crore businesses of human trafficking, run by RD (Rahuil Dev) and Kelly (Kelly Dorjee). RD starts to hunt for Vishwa. Besides this, love story between nag and kajal runs parallel to the main story. Story is very simple with few twists.
Naga Chaitanya has toned down his body and looking stylish and lean in his new Avatar. He improved tremendously in all departments compared his earlier movies. He is stylish in some costumes and he has also improved a lot in dialogue delivery. Kajal too looks quite different and indeed wore a kind of chinese style. her dialogue delivery and harityle makes you feel she is uninterested with this role. Ajay Bhuyan has tried to use her skin show as trumpcard but after certain time, it doesn t entice. Sriram has done a neat job. Sameesha as his wife is just adequate. Bharini,Bharamanandam, Ali, Venu Madhav, Uttej were wasted.
Dhada storyline is perplexed. Direction is good in parts, but eccentric most of the time. Editing needs to be crisp. Cinematography by gnana shekar is of top class. He captured lush locales in a beautiful way and he has shown Naga Chaitanya and kajal excellently. The graphic-work/color-grading is also good. Devi Sri Prasad excels again with this film in terms of songs and background music.

First half of the movie is adequate. But the second half is a complete letdown. Dhada is an example of what happens when the director loses his grip on story and goes on showcasing rich production values.
Final Word: Dhada Disappoints
