Let us analyse

The story is about Komaram Bheem (Junior NTR) and Alluri Sitarama Raju (Ram Charan). While Komaram Bheem is ready to do anything to save tribal people from Adilabad District, Alluri Sitarama Raju is a police officer under British rule. He is ever ready to take any type of assignment to become a special officer of the British armory. Komaram Bheem comes to Delhi to rescue a tribal girl who is forcibly taken away to Delhi from a tribal hamlet in Adilabad forest by the British.

Meanwhile, Alluri Sitarama Raju is assigned to catch Komaram Bheem dead or alive. Will Raju catch Komaram Bheem and what happens to him and what made him work for the British is the climax.

Artistes’ performance:

Junior NTR and Ram Charan have vied with each other to utilise the available screen space in this big-budget movie. Both of them have excelled in the song Naatu Naatu. They deserve appreciation for their dancing skills. In other scenes, NTR has acted well as a concerned leader of tribal people. His performance in some scenes where he struggles to understand English makes his hard-core fans to giggle for a while.

It is quite disappointing to see Alia Bhatt in this movie. Director has not utilized her properly. She appears in four scenes and mouths five or six dialogues. Ajay Devgn has acted well. Samuthirakani has nothing to do in this movie.

Highlights:

The highlight of this is the performance of Junior NTR, Ram Charan and Olivia Morris. The other highlight is choreography by KK Senthilkumar and music by MM Keeravani for the song – Naatu Naatu – which is the best among the songs. The other drawback of this movie is having no comedy and romantic songs.

Drawbacks:

The main drawback of this movie is the poor and unconvincing script. The problem with the Kannada version is dialogues. The audiences have to put extra effort to hear these dialogues.

Analysis

It is quite disappointing to see director Rajamouli, known for handling megaphone for many successful movies, faltering in narrating the story. The problem with this movie is that it gains momentum only after one hour of its beginning. Even the beginning scene where a British officer’s wife takes a tribal girl along with her to Delhi looks incongruous. The scene where Junior NTR enters a highly-fortified fort along with wild animals is far from convincing and logical. Yes it is true that it is not fair to look for logic in an action movie but it is not fair to have some scenes that are too cinematic. The escape scene in which Bheem rescues Alluri Sitarama Raju is not convincing.

Bottom-line: Worth watch provided you have patience and time to cope with its duration.
