Megastar Chiranjeevi and Ram Charan’s social drama, Acharya is carrying high expectations among the fans. Written and directed by Koratala Siva, the film has hit the screens today. Let’s see how it is.

Story:

Set in Dharmasthali backdrop, the film revolves around the life of people from a place named Sidhhavanam. What is the interconnection between Dharmasthali and Siddhavanam? How will a politically influencing personality named Basava( Sonu Sood) dominates Dharmasthali? Why will Chiranjeevi’s character enter Dharmasthali? What is his backstory and connection with Siddha’s ( Ram Charan) role, form the crucial crux of the film.

On-screen performances:

Megastar Chiranjeevi impresses with his outstanding aura and screen presence. His trademark mannerisms, dance movements and dialogue delivery will be loved by the fans.
Ram Charan is the show stealer as he gave his best in the Siddha role. Charan’s screen presence and his intense acting in a couple of key scenes will be loved by the moviegoers.

Fans will like the combination scenes between Chiranjeevi and Charan for obvious reasons. The star father-son duo are just amazing on screen in a single frame. Pooja Hegde is cute in her traditional look as Charan’s love interest. Her chemistry with Charan adds a fresh vibe to the screen.

Sonu Sood and Jisshu Sen Gupta are decent in their negative shaded roles. Other supporting artists are fine in their respective roles.

Off-screen talents:

Director Koratala Siva is back with a social drama that has a weak script and dull presentation. Considering Koratala’s track record, everyone expects a minimum grantee film but the director disappoints big-time with his outdated story and screenplay. Though the film has two stars, it lacks proper high moments which is an example to say about the poor direction skills of Koratala Siva.

Music by Mani Sharma is okay but definitely not as expected. While all the songs are just passable, the background score is not that great compared to Mani Sharma’s capabilities.
The cinematography by Thiru is superb as he showcased the entire film, especially the Dharmasthali set with a proper lighting setup. Editing by Naveen Nooli fails to register.
Production values for this high budget film are good.

Positive Points:

  • Bhale Bhale Banjara song
  • The father-son duo
  • Artwork

Negative Points:

  • Outdated presentation
  • Dull proceedings
  • Lack of Entertainment

Verdict:

In an overview, Acharya is a serious social drama that has a weak storyline and 90s style presentation. Though Chiranjeevi and Charan tried to bring life to the proceedings with their screen presence, the non-commercial approach of Koratala makes Acharya an unworthy watch this weekend.

Rating: 2.25/5

Watch this space for the live updates of the movie from 12:30 AM

12:40 AM IST – Movie starts with Mahesh Babu’s voice over about Dharmasthali

12:50 AM IST-  Chiranjeevi as Acharya’s introduction is good. Lahe Lahe song is superb with Chiru’s graceful steps, feast for fans. Sonusood is local MLA aspirant who loots endowment money, villians introduction is okay.

1:00 AM IST – Dharmastali’s people fight with atrocities done by Basava (Sonu Sood). First fight of the movie is complete, it’s an average fight.

1:10 AM IST – Jishu Sen Gupta’s introduction as ruthless influential business man. Second fight is a typical Chiru style, good watch. Pooja gets introduced as music teacher. Radham scene is a good watch.

1:20 AM IST – Chiru steps in Chaana Kastam songs are simple and graceful, appeals to fans and masses.

1:30 AM IST – Chiru straighten’s the goons in Dharmastali. Pre interval fight is okay. Ram Charan Makes a brief introduction as Sidda.

First half Report:  Acharya’s first half does not offer much to the common audience, an item song and pre interval scenes might appeal to fans. 

1:45 AM IST – Neelambari song with Pooja Hedge is a watchable one, Charan dances with ease. It’s an eye feast.

2:00 AM IST- Backstory of Sonusood and Ram Charan. Ram Charan gets saved by Naxals and he joins them.

2:30 AM IST – Back to Back fight scenes are going. 

Final Report : Movie does not live up to the expectations. It does not cater to fans except Chiru Charan combo scenes, bhale banjara song, Nilambari song.  Koratala Siva chose a very weak, old formula script with two big stars and delivered an unimpressive narrative.
