Ramcharan was simply awesome with his stylish looks, attire, his fight sequences, his emotions, his Dances,his comedy timing were excellent. Chiranjeevi entry at crucial point was superb, his presence is a treat to the silver screen. Rakul Preeth was a regular barbie doll with his sizzling body and glamorous looks. Arun Vijay excelled as bad guy in limited role, a new Tollywood stylish villain .
Kriti has much stuff to perform in this film , she gave her best as Charan’s sister, Both Brother and sister emotional scenes have come out well. Brahmanandam as Suzuki Subrahmanyam , JP, Ali as PK , Posani have entertained . Other characters Sampath Raj, Nadhiya, Rao Ramesh, Tanikella Bharani, Amitash Pradhan, Saptagiri, Posani, Prithvi, Vennela Kishore & others are good.
Screenplay is completely engaging in first half but drops tempo in second half . Editing is good. Manoj Paramahamsa’s Cinematography is outs standing, the aerial shouts, song visual, every frame is rich & top notch with perfect lighting. Acton part is highlighted in the film, Breathtaking Stunts are really terrific. Choreography needs much mention, Ramcharan excels in Dance department, all the songs were grand with superb dance moves.
Director Srinu Vaitla after Aagadu debacle came with a full dish with all ingredients to satisfy the mega fans . The movie do not just run in his own format of Father-son relationship, cop story, ‘confusion’ drama and comedy track. Although there is father -son typo, he adds Brother- sister emotions , unlike his hero are cops in his earlier film Dookudu, Baadshah, and Aagadu, In this Hero character is a stunt man. While the comedy track is not separate in the film.
Although Kona Venkat,& Gopi Mohan had developed the story of ‘Bruce Lee’, it goes in a old format while they scripted twists during narration. There was nothing much to tell in the second half as the twist was told during interval of first half. Comedy didn’t worked out 100 percent as we have seen in Dookudu and Baadshah. There are few boring moments in first half while the second half have lot. Tisca Chopra much hyped role has not much importance. The director has failed to design the Arun Vijay’s role to look stronger than Heroe. He encounters with hero in only two instances in the film, Firstly he goes into coma after taking beating hero and second time he actually dies.
The run time of the film is 155 minutes , it can be chopped by 15 minutes to make it more interesting. The film is a regular Srinu Vaitla film with lot of commercial elements to enthrall the mass audience. Charan’s charizatio, Rukuls glamour, Interval block, Songs , Chiranjeevi guest role are highlights of the film . Routine story, screenplay, treatment , content in second half are the minus for the film. Overall ‘Bruce Lee The Fighter’ is a routine commercial entertainer .
Double Treat for Mega Fans
