Nandu who is popular as a character artist has turned into lead actor with the movie Savaari. The film has attracted audiences with its impressive trailer and songs. Let us see if the movie lives up to its expectations.
What about story ?
Raju (Nandu) is happy go lucky guy who lives in slum. He has a horse with the name Baadshah who is his livelihood. He uses Baadshah as Savari in marriages. Unfortunately, Baadshah has a heart problem and for the operation, he starts saving money. But at the same time he meets Priya (Priyanka Sharma) who loves him. After few scenes he reciprocates the love. But loving Priya brings unwanted troubles to Raju. What are they? How are they connected to Baadshah? Who is Priya actually? How Nandu solves all his problems is the remaining part of the film.
How about On-Screen Stars performance ?
Nandu has done many roles in his career but definitely his performance in Savaari stands out. He will go a notch higher in terms of performance. He has justified director’s vision completely. Irrespective of the cinema result, Nandu will be recognized as a good performer with this movie. Priyanka is just okay in her role. In some scenes she did well while in other she is not so okay. Shiva did well. Others are fine.
How about off Screen Talents ?
Cinematograhy and music stands out apart from remaining departments. Monish Bhupathiraju’s camera work is impressive. Music by Sekhar Chandra is outstanding. Every song is good to hear. However they could be shot better. Editing by Santosh could have been better. Movie is slow in pace and many unwanted scenes comes and go in the movie.
Sahith Mothkuri has handled Story, Dialogues, Screenplay and Direction departments. Apart from direction, he has failed in every other department. Story is ages old, only change is that horse has been added to give new dimension. Screenplay is routine and dialogues are not worth mentioning. His attempt in dark comedy fails too.
What’s Hot ?
Monish Bhupathiraju’s visuals
Sekhar Chandra’s music
What’s Not ?
Savaari is one such film which is attractive by its trailer but is boring as a complete movie. Boring scenes, routine screenplay, not so interesting narration makes the movie a tedious watch. Apart from that horse backdrop there is nothing new to offer and that backdrop isn’t impressive either.
Immediate reaction at Intermission: OMG! Still we have to bear second half
Immediate reaction at end credits: Ufff! Thank God, the movie has finally ended
Watch or Not?: Would you dare to, after reading all the warnings!
Box Office Status:
Thanks to the trailer, Savaari will get decent openings. But with the content they have in hand, it will be extremely difficult to sustain.
