Behind the screens
Many aspiring people from Mega Family are showing their acting talent on silver screen as heroes. Mega Star Chiranjeevi aunt’s son Rahul Venkat is the new entrant. He is coming as ‘Alias Janaki’ and let us see what impact he created.
School Teacher (Naga Babu) brought up his son Janaki Ram (Venkat Rahul) as a honest and Principled man. Janaki Ram however finds all is not as rosy as it was picturised by his father. He finds severe opposition as a town planning officer, GHMC, Hyderabad when he tries to stop a small piece of land getting encroached by Vasudev Mysa (Shatru). However Janaki do not bend down even after his boss Joint Commissioner Mukundam (Tanikella Bharani) told. Janaki because of his ways even undergoes the ignominy of suffering heartbreak with his girlfriend Chaitra(Anisha Ambrose) leaving him. Will Janaki change his ways or prove the power of honesty has to be seen on screen.
Rahul Venkat failed to impress viewers with his looks and performance. He failed to show any expressions and if he has to continue as hero he should work out on his looks and acting as well. Anisha Ambrose attracted all with her beauty. Shatru stole the show as a villain. Tanikella Bharani, Naga Babu and Sri Ramya did according to their roles.
Director Daya failed to extract minimum performances from the actors. One will pity him since many are new comers. His routine and monotonous script added to the woes. To the top of it he failed in his direction and screen-play. Slow pace of the film is the major drawback though the duration is just 100 minutes or so. Lack of commercial elements, unconvincing romantic elements, lack of comedy undid the film. Dialogues are quite good in the film. Characterization of hero itself is a big minus as hero was shown as emotionally weak person shedding floods of tears all the time.
Production Values of Sanghamitra Arts is quite good. Music is quite good and melodies are quite good along with the item number. Cinematography is appealing. Editing failed miserably in the film.
