Dasara is a period-action-adventure film written and directed by debutant Srikanth Odela. It stars Nani and Keerthy Suresh. The film is set in the backdrop of Singareni coal mines near Godavarikhani of Telangana. The music was composed by Santhosh Narayan while the cinematography was done by Sathyam Sooryan ISC and it is edited by Navin Nooli. The film is produced by Sudhakar Cherukuri under the SLV Cinemas banner.
Natural star Nani has undergone a substantial makeover for his upcoming action thriller drama Dasara which released in theaters today. The film is promoted as a rooted and rustic action drama. Here’s our review of the film.
Dharani (Nani) and Suri (Dekkshit Shetty) are close friends who hail from the same village and love the same girl Vennela (Keerthy Suresh). Knowing Suri’s interest in Vennela, Dharani sacrifices his love and helps get them married. Are they happily married? How village politics between Shivanna and Rajanna (Sai Kumar)play a role in Dharani and Suri’s life forms the rest of the story
What about the on-screen performances?
Nani lived up to the hype with his performance. His act in the introduction scene, beedi scenes, and climax scenes is something to look out for.
Keerthy Suresh performed well, especially the special mass dance sequence by her is worth mentioning. Shine Tom Chacko as chinnaNambi is excellent as one of the antagonist. Deekshith Shetty as hero’s friend did justice to his role. Other actors in the movie did their part well.
What about off-screen talents?
Srikanth Odela attempted a honest rustic rural drama, but was not able to fully convey the emotions of love and friendship in a way that will engage an audience. The raw and rustic nature of the film demand a capable and sound filmmaker. He took two different emotions but failed to do justice to either one of them, rather ended up diluting both emotions. The narrative style that he chooses is very slow and the characterization that he designed for Nani makes it to be monotonous as the movie progresses.
The background score by Santosh Narayanan is of top-notch quality. The visuals by Sathyan Sooryan are a highlight of the film as he has delivered a grade-A job when it comes to visual composition and color grading. The dusty visuals and the rustic vibe are blended pretty well to make for a good visual experience.DOP Sathyan Sooryan’s work set the right mood for the movie as the movie carries a rustic look throughout.
- BGM is good for the most part
- Lead actors performances
- Sathyan Sooryan’s Cinematography
- Director took much of cinematic liberty
- Songs does not give any break to the audience from intense drama
- Slow narration
Dasara is a rustic rural drama that weakly engages its audience on the emotional front, despite good performances from its lead cast. The wafer-thin plot and slow pacing of the film make it not much appealing, although the background music was occasionally impressive. The director is not so successful in effectively conveying the friendship and love emotions.

Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4
year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She
