Behind the Screens
After Delivering Two Blockbusters like ‘Jalsa’ and ‘Attarintiki Daredhi’, Pawan Kalyan and Trivikram Srinivas have joined hands for another film, ‘Agnyaathavaasi’. The movie was released today across the globe with so much of hype and expectations. Let us see how the movie has fared with the audience.
Abhishikth Bhargav (Pawan Kalyan) is the son of Billionaire Vinda (Boman Irani). He is groomed in Assam without anyone knowing about him as a B Plan to take over the Business Empire in case of emergency if any. Vinda is murdered and Abhishikth joins the company as an employee to unearth the murder mystery. Rest is all about how he does that and how he takes over the business.
Pawan Kalyan is at his best once again in the film. But then, the actor seems to be out of shape in some places while his peculiar mannerisms have become repetitive. Pawan also seems to be completely uninterested in songs. He neither gives lip sync nor tries to dance. Keerthy Suresh and Anu Emmanuel are a total waste in the film. Rao Ramesh and Murali Sharma are good in the roles they are offered. Aadi has got a poorly written role. Khushboo is okay and Boman Irani is apt. Raghu Babu and Vennela Kishore brought in some laughs here and there. That’s okay to ignore the rest.
Trivikram seems to have developed this habit of taking the audience for granted. The movie is a poor rip off from ‘Largo Winch’ with some character changes. Some scenes are literally lifted from the film. But then, Trivikram the writer has also failed with the screenplay being horrendous. Dialogues are also not the level of expectations. The whole entertainment track, the hero-heroine romance, and Pawan Kalyan’s mannerisms are worse. We hardly mention a scene or two which will excite the fans. Trivikram is the biggest culprit of this debacle.
Anirudh disappoints in his debut film in Tollywood. Songs are okay but they are misplaced. Background score is good but not great. Manikandan’s camera work is the major asset of the film and the editing is disappointing. Production Values are Grand.
The first half of the film is good only for Pawan Kalyan’s introduction and the Interval Bang. With the interval, one hopes that things will be a lot better in the second half. There are no highs whatsoever and gives a lengthy feel to the movie. The second half appears to be slightly better than the First half with some comedy here and there. But even then, the whole experience is a complete disappointment. The comedy and dialogues which we expect from a Trivikram’s film are disappointing.
