Movie Review:

Pawan Kalyan is set to enthral his fans and followers after three long years as his latest film Vakeel Saab is hitting the big screens across the globe today. The Venu Sriram directorial is a remake of Bollywood super hit Pink. Let us see what the film has in store.

Story:

Satya Dev(Pawan Kalyan) is a socially responsible citizen who becomes a lawyer to help the needy. He marries the love of his life Shruti Hassan and following a series of unfortunate events, he quits his career. A few years later, he meets Anjali, Ananya Nagalla and Nivetha Thomas who are being harassed by a gang of goons and decides to help them. But he will have to come up against defence lawyer Prakash Raj and a crooked politician if he is to ensure that the three women are served justice. Will he be able to do so?

What about on-screen performances?

Pawan Kalyan’s screen presence is next to none and we get to enjoy the same in Vakeel Saab. He sports three different get-ups in the film and this comes as a sweet surprise to the viewers. His performance and portrayal of a challenging character are impeccable. He excels in emotional scenes, college episode, and courtroom scenes. Nivetha Thomas, Anjali, and Ananya breathe life into the characters they played. Nivetha’s performance in the female version of Maguva Maguva is praiseworthy. Prakash Raj as antagonist delivers a fine performance. But somewhere down the line, one might feel that Pawan Kalyan’s performance overshadows Prakash Raj’s.

What about off-screen talents?

Thaman delivers one of his career-best works for Vakeel Saab. The songs he had scored are already a big hit, but after watching the film, we simply can’t keep ourselves from drooling over his background score. PS Vinod’s cinematography is all things sublime. He presents Pawan Kalyan very well. The interval fight and washroom fight are the pick of the lot when it comes to action blocks.

Venu Sriram finds the perfect balance between Pink’s intricate story and the commercial standards that are quintessential for a Pawan Kalyan starrer. The changes he made to the origin story are impressive. The second half is pacy and it keeps the viewers on the edge of their seats. Pawan Kalyan’s channels the inner actor in him for Vakeel Saab. Pawan Kalyan’s political ideologies are brilliantly infused in certain scenes. The interval episode has a political touch and in a way, it can be considered as a counter to YS Jagan.

What’s Hot?

Pawan Kalyan’s impeccable performance
Pacy and engaging second half
Courtroom scenes
Emotional connect
Interval block and climax
Powerful action episodes

What’s Not?

Slightly dull first half
A few routine scenes

Verdict:

Pawan Kalyan’s fans have been waiting for three years to watch their beloved actor on the big screens and they couldn’t have asked for a better film than Vakeel Saab. The social drama showcases a new side of Pawan Kalyan as an actor he also entertains his fans with his vintage mannerisms and body language. The film has enough commercial elements to please the masses and at the same time, it has the emotional connect which bring it close to the family audiences. There are quite a few satirical dialogues as well. In certain aspects, Vakeel Saab is better than the original.

Watch or Not?

A must watch
