Love is not lost even in the worst case! This is what similar when the protagonist hand over his lover to the cruelest – What for he gives his love bird is not effectively transmitted to the eyes and brains by director Prashanth Raj. Has the protagonist made any deal? If so, it should have been properly narrated with the purpose behind it.
Prashanth Raj film hitting silver screen after four years like the other film of the week ‘Seizer’ also seeing the light of the day after four years – four scenes are not there to stuck to your heart and brain!
It is such a monotonous revenge saga that is over fed. Prashanth Raj uses the cinematic liberty but he misses a simple logic that is must and should. Even in adding songs – it comes like that and goes away.
On the clue he holds audience till the end; it was expected because the handsome Ram had told in previous scenes that he would not give up Vaidehi at any cost.
Family sentiment works out and for the crime there is only punishment to villain who is out in the middle to become an MLA with no black spots. You can kidnap your lover and later explain the situations compelling.
Prashanth Raj ‘Zoom’ in giving a convincing film diluted because of his long stay with the film and associating with other projects.
Sharat Lohitashva at places eats away everyone before him with his eyes and dialogue delivery. He is such a powerful actor – actor like Prem is outshined.
Charming lover boy to action hero the transformation of Prem is not very convincing. The rose and thorns is better in the plant. When rose is plucked the beauty of it is only picked. It is not a precise match in action for Prem. Handing over of his lover to cruel den from Prem no one expected.
The beauty to watch again and again is Kriti Kharbanda. Kriti cries she loses significance. Sharat Lohitashva has a fiery role that he has enacted several times. Of course he is better than monotonous Ravishanker.
The timid couple Srinivasa Prabhu and Padmaja Rao is apt. The musical scores of Charan Raj deserved to be better. There is not even one long standing haunting melody.
Santosh Rai Pathaje cinematography is as beautiful as ever. Dhalapathy could have been better treat from Prashanth Raj – his deviation from one film to another perhaps responsible for loose ends in the film.
