Allu Arjun was oozing with energy in Mass characterization, he impressed with his performance, dance and fights. Rakul Preet Singh, Catherine Tresa didn’t get any chance to perform as their roles were restricted to songs and few scenes. Adi Pinisetti was impressive with his villainous looks and he was stylish . Saikumar as Rakul’s father, Suman as DGP and Srikanth were good in their roles.
Rishi Punjabi impressed with his cinematography work especially the action and songs taking. Thaman’s music is not so impressive, Seems like he did not put any efforts for the music, The RR used in the teaser was used for complete film. He used the same bit of music regardless of Hero and Villain. However the mass beat in the songs are impressive. Only Blockbuster song has all components for a ideally engaging intent song. Kotagiri Venkateswara Rao editing needs to be more crisp, there are several dragging and boring scenes which amounts around 25 minutes , can be scissored. Two fights are very impressive especially the the roller skating fight.Art work was colorful and production values are good.
Director Boyapati Seenu has come with a fresh storyline – “Hero loving a MLA”, However he failed to develop the script to bring freshness. Audience expect Boyapati’s magic touch in Hero elevation scenes, he has proved with his films like Simha, Legend, Badra, Tulasi and even flop film Dammu, but in Saarainodu, he misses his magic touch. Boyapati failed to create such impact with Bunny ‘s Ghana charcater as the character misses powerful dialogues which can create impact for long time. Brahmanandam as Geoscientist has once again failed to bring required humour. Some scenes like Proposing a MLA on first sight & falling in love with Rakul on first sight , doesn’t convenience the audience. Few action scenes were seems to be inspired from Dammu film.
The first half of the film does not come to main track for about 50 minutes . Court scene and Interval Bang are impressive, the second half drags to proceed. The final twist , Bunny saying to media that, those who have killed Adi have attacked him, was an Average twist. The stretched climax is wretched .Overall , The movie is strictly an average affair.
Formulaic flick for Fans
