Sarileru Neekevvaru (2020)

Firstly I am fully satisfied with the movie and proudly can say it's a Hatrick Hit for Mahesh.. 

Once again MaheshBabu proved that he does something different than other actors either thought his way of story selection or some new point or through a good message by highlighting a current problem in society or by his acting variation. 

This movie does not have a 'No Smoking Ad' which happens very rare in movies especially in commercial movies. (In Spyder also there was No smoking ad). 

With his movie Mahesh proved once again that 

1. He can also dance well (may be not like NTR, RC etc. ) but upto his mark. 

2. He has shown acting variation from his past movies

3. He can also do a Mass commercial... 

Mahesh entrance was very simple and classy one.. Mahesh look was so fresh and looks energetic.. 

Mahesh way of dialogue delivery was so good.. 

Songs are good when watched on screen... Even though you listen it for 1st time also.. 

Many complained DSP did not give good songs.. but they are good on screen.. 

The confrontation scenes with Prakash Raj and Mahesh are good.. 

Especially scene with Ministers in a party office (liked very much..one of my fav) 

Expected a lot of comedy from Rajendra Prasad, but it's average (didn't met my expectation..so a bit dissatisfied..other wise it's fine) 

1st half was good and goes up high at pre-interval and 2nd half goes interestingly there on much into the plot.. 

Climax was a different one and not a routine kinda climax (i have my doubt and not sure how many will like or not..but I liked it..) 

Pros:
-------

* SuperStar MaheshBabu himself (it's obviously) 

* Vijayasanti character and role (expected a small role..but it was good and her acting was flawless) 

* Terrific BGM and Cinematography

* Action scenes - especially Pre-interval episode (super elevation scenes..) 

* MaheshBabu dance moments in Mind Block song... ❤❤❤ ( Visual Feast for fans) 

* Emotional scenes are good and felt very natural.. 

Cons:
--------

* The much hyped train sequence is not up to the mark.. It's average.. (Could have trimmed a bit here or could have been much better) 


One a whole, it's a wholesome package with all commercial elements rightly framed from start to end..

Final Verdict : Bomma Daddarillipoindi... MassMB's Mass Hit.. 

Rating: 3.5/5 (for normal audience) 

4.5/5 (my personal rating as a fan..)

Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy (2019)

SYERAA is a multi lingual epic that is written by Parichuri brothers and directed by Surender Reddy and produced by Chiranjeevi’s son Ram Charan under the Konidela Production Company banner.

Set in the pre independence era. The film is mostly a fictional work that is tailored from the life and history of freedom fighter Uyyalawada Narasimha Reddy from the Rayalaseema region of Andhra Pradesh. The early establishment of the premise and the characters is a little hasty, despite that the flow of the story is a little sluggish. The predictable story line too does not offer anything new in terms of narration. Scenes where Sudeep and Chiranjeevi share screen space are noteworthy. It’s in the second half that the film comes alive with action and drama in good dose. The length of the film definitely needed some snips.

Chiranjeevi rocks the second half but in the first half he looks a tad jaded in scenes that are devoid of action. Sudeep is the dark house and stands out. Nayanthara makes it work. Tamannah impresses in an intense role.. Oh yes there is Vijay Sethupathi who is his normal self even in this pre historical. Amitabh Bachan makes a dignified impact.

Ratnavelu’s brilliant visuals work in tandem with good VFX as well as some amazing work by the production design team. The costumes design by Uthara and Sushmita are a treat as well. The action scenes choreographed by multiple stunt masters are outrageous but then you would expect it. Julius Packiam’s background score is adequate. Amit Trivedi’ songs are decent. Sreekar Prasad’s editing surprisingly is a hit and miss. Dialogues could have been better. Direction by Reddy is fine.

SYE RAA NARASIMHA REDDY has nothing new to offer but then on a huge canvas with patriotism and sacrifice as it’s underpinnings and a good dose of secularism, mythology and drama it is not difficult to overcome the blemishes.

SYE RAA NARASIMHA REDDY – READY !!

2.75/5

Mahanati(2018)

Keerthy Suresh – She acted in a biopic where she looks as a replica of famous actor Savitri. She gives her performance to the best in every scene of the film and attracts audience with her innocence and emotions.
Dulquer Salmaan – He plays his role very nicely which has a slight negative touch in his character.
Samantha – She is well suited as a anchor in the film. Her dedication is impressive as she dubbed in the film and her acting in the climax shows her talent.
Vijay Deverakonda– He performed quite well in the film and the chemistry
between him and Samantha is excellent.
Others – Well Done
Cinematography – Outstanding
Screenplay – Decent
Direction – Admirable and Perfect
Mahanati(2018) – The movie is all about the life of great telugu actress Savitri. Director is the life of the film who has done an amazing job in this biopic. He shows the life of Savitri her ups and downs without adding unnecessary scenes and stays true which is a very challenging task. Dialogues are meaningful and makes you feel emotional. Cameraman gets the full credit as it is not easy to show the movie of 1980’s in a realistic way. Background throughout the film makes you feel the depth of the film. Music is good and songs are quite apt to the film. In the first half, you will enjoy the childhood scenes of Savitri’s which creates fun and also with an interesting love story. Second half of movie is emotional as it was full of problems she faced in her life. Costumes and makeup department did their great job which made Keerthy Suresh look same as Savitri in the film. Keerthy Suresh made this film success with her superb performance as she delivered best in her mainly in all the climax scenes. Samantha did her best in the film which makes you can feel emotionally at the end of the film. All the supporting actors acted very well in the film. You may feel dull and cinematic if you don’t know the life story of Savitri. Stunning job did by the whole team of the film. Everyone must watch the film as it is rare telugu biopic of famous actress.

Naa Peru Surya, Naa Illu India(2018)

Allu Arjun – Aggressive and Strong performance. He plays the role of passionate soldier in the film. As usual his dance and stunts are eye catching. One of this best in the recent.
Anu Emmanuel –  She looks beautiful and does a decent role.
Sarathkumar  – He gave his best performance as a villain in a powerful politician role.
Arjun Sarja  – He performs a strong role in the film as a Indian psychologist and also as a father of Surya in the film.
Others – Good
Cinematography – Cool
Screenplay – Chewy
Direction – Satisfying

Naa Peru Surya, Naa Illu India(2018) – This movie stands as a tribute to the Indian army and how a person should control his anger which effects his career. Patriotic scenes are very well executed in the movie. Background music is awesome. Dialogues are pretty good. Dance steps and fights are very different and attractive. Cinematography and locations in the film are done with great effort on a hilly area. In the first half, comedy is fine.Lack of romantic scenes as the movie is about the Indian army. In the second half,audience may feel little bored with unnecessary scenes with villain. The main drawback of the film is you may feel dull at the end due to too much drag in climax. One can watch the movie and enjoy which has a very beautiful message.

Prakash Raj – He is always does it best and this movie is one of it.

Bharat Ane Nenu (2018) – Social Entertainer which worth your time! A movie with a powerful message executed very well but not sure how it can be implemented in reality. If it happen’s in reality, each state will be maintained well. Mahesh babu performed with such a maturity and people would love to see his performance in this movie. Love portion is very cute and it will enhance your childhood memories. Prakash raj is back with such a powerful performance.Cinematography is excellent and well supported by all well known casting. Kudos to the background music. The only drawback in the movie is songs and length. Choreography and set of dance is eye-catching.Must watch for everyone!

Krishnarjuna Yuddham (2018)

Nani : He Plays a dual role in the film where he shines in one of the role in very well manner.
Anupama Parameswaran :  She is addressed as Subbalakshmi as a beautiful traditional girl. She performed well and looked more glamorous than in her previous movies.
Rukshar Dhillon : She is called as Dr.Riya in movie. Her character looks decent and performance is good.
Ravi Awana : He plays a villain role. He speaks in hindi in the movie and performance is fine.
Others– Good
Cinematography – Eye catching
Screenplay – Balanced
Direction – Decent and Impressive
Krishnarjuna Yuddham (2018) :
It is about how to save girls who are kidnapped that makes the movie a routine story. Nani acted in dual roles named Krishna and Arjun. Nani as Krishna in mass action entertains with his slang but Arjun’s character failed to show his performance as it is styled and arrogant. First half of the movie makes the audience impressive with the combination of Mahesh Vitta and Nani’s comedy. Dialogues are good. Romantic scenes are less between the hero and heroine. Music sounds well and the shots taken are very beautiful. Background score is used unnecessarily even where it is not required.
Brahmaji, a great comedian who is famous for his acts is the best entertainer in the first half of movie. There is no proper and powerful Villain which makes easy ending of the movie. In the second half of the movie, predictable direction and lengthy run-time of finding the heroines who are kidnapped. All over the movie, Nani is highlighted which is also makes you feel bored and there are no scenes between hero and heroine in the second half. Fights are good in the second half. Go and enjoy the movie for fun.

Rangasthalam (2018)

Ram Charan Tej – He is addressed as Chittibabu who is partially deaf. He showed great acting skills with his native slang which attracts audience. It is well suited script for him.
Jagapathibabu – He Plays a dynamic role as a President in the village. He brings a lot of depth to the film and performance is Outstanding.
Samantha Akkineni – She called as Ramalakshmi. She is clever and her expressions and naughtiness in her character is adorable.
Aadhi Pinisetty – He is supporting actor in the role of Chittibabu’s brother with superb performance.
Others – At their best
Cinematography – Good
Screenplay – Balanced
Direction – Fantastic
Rangasthalam (2018) – It is a drama in village atmosphere and the actors did their best performance.
It is a Mass Entertainer and Family oriented movie. Music and the lyrics is the biggest strength.
Romantic scenes between hero and heroine adds beauty to the film. A different aspect in making comedy as hero is deaf that creates fun throughout the movie. Unpredictable direction as which creates interest in the audience. Drawback is only the lengthy run-time of the film.
