‪Sarrainodu‬ - Boyapati delivers "The right man"

Boyapati delivers "The right man" in a muscular and stylish profile. its a definite entertainer, but a lengthy one. Allu Arjun is quite comfortable in justifying the title. Delivering an action packed scene and narrating the same in a manipulative manner in tandem works perfect. His dance moves make you tap your feet.

Production values are rich and all six songs are wonderfully choreographed. Be it the score, sets, costumes or dance moves; it is a perfect blend. Thaman's tunes and Background score triggers the emotion and elevated certain fight sequences.

All-in-all, we don't see much of typical " Boyapati Srinu bouncers" in fights. Thank god, he came out of his format and tried something new which entertains the audience.

‪‎Supreme‬ - It's amazing! Zing... Zing...

Sai Dharam tej has the mettle to be the next star in Pawan Kalyan's line up. His performance in supreme reveals the same. There is a surprising 5 seconds frame in a special song matching his charisma with top stars. Screaming with excitement was my reflex in the multiplex.

The director Anil Ravipudi beautifully weaves comedy into the script with right dose and punch in it. Commercial movies are filled with lot of actors.It usually happens that some artists disappear as the movie comes to a certain point and leaves open points in audiences mind. But Anil intelligently manages to connect each open point preceding climax and makes way for comedy.

Sai Karthik' s music is enjoyable while watching the movie. 'Taxi Vaala' song is a catchy one. Raashi Khanna is sweet and justifies her role though out the movie. Production values and cinematography is on par with Dil Raju's Movie standards. Every artist complements the scene with their performance. The story revolves around an Anglo-Indian kid whose dialog delivery deserves a special mention.

In a single line, It's a crispy commercial entertainer.

24TheMovie‬ - A perfect cinematic experience playing with time.

Writing script for a complex subject like "Time travel" is genius and presenting the magnum opus can become an Achilles heel. But the director Vikram K. Kumar is picaso at explaining complex subjects. He is one among the few directors who understands audience pulse through out the movie.

It starts like a regular film and the director has sub-consciously trained the mind of audience during the love track about how he executes time travel. It sets a perfect stage for second half and takes you though a journey of thrilling twists.

Suria is at his best as an antagonist and its a cake walk for him to play a protagonist. Smantha and Nitya Menon were perfect and did justice to their roles.There is no need to review this movie(period!). Just go, watch and experience the directorial brilliance behind the screenplay.

Bramhotsavam sets a perfect example in 2016 of how not to make a movie!

I would like to appreciate skills of director Srikanth Addala to convince Superstar Mahesh Babu to assume the role of an Actor cum producer in a movie which literally has no story. The director’s motive of making a film (Celebration of family) with huge cast turns to be a loss of face.

When the movie started, I felt like riding a bicycle on an uneven surface and trying to adapt road conditions. I switched multiple modes of transport to catch up with racy first half and ended up with a flat tire by the time movie reaches it’s interval. In retrospection, I just felt that the casting is dancing ridiculously all the way(so called celebration) and four songs passed my way quite unintentionally. My idea of Mahesh Babu’s Bramhotsavam from a stress buster turns of to be a STRESS BOOSTER.

Screenplay is directionless. There is no soul in the movie that connects with the viewer. Given a chance to trim the movie’s length, the editor has humongous freedom to chop any scene. Because there is no flow or logic required to execute Bramhostsavam’s so called “Manchi maata” in first half. Rao Ramesh’s character blows up with frustration before interval which depicts the context of pathetic audience in a perfect sync.

I had little hope that second half would entertain me in my journey but Samantha comes like a spoilsport. In an attempt to rephrase the story, I realized that there is only a small story line which is lost somewhere in the Northern part of India. Some dialogues in second half had let me double check my proficiency in Telugu; don’t know why it’s complicated. I felt exhausted coming out of the theatre and strongly recommend everyone to stay away from the movie. Any Mahesh’s fans can try once and feel the pain in a**

Title justification – Feel your home like a dance floor and dance unreasonably to test audience patience.
