Story:Jai(Sai Dharam Tej) is a patriotic DRDO officer. Keshav(Prasanna) is a notorious criminal who wants to steal a very powerful weapon called Octopus from DRDO headquarters and use it for destruction. How does Jai stop him forms the story.
Performances: This is definitely Sai Dharam Tej’s best performance till date. He plays the role of an intelligent youngster in a convincing way. Mehreen is cute and has nothing much to do. Prasanna is superb as the villain and very stylish. He reminds everyone of Arvind Swamy from Dhruva. Others did their bit as required.
Technicalities: Cinematography is quality . Songs and bgm by Thaman are a big highlight but two songs could have been avoided as they come in for no reason. Story of the movie is simple and interesting. Screenplay could have been more interesting.
Screenplay reminds us of movies like Dhruva and Spyder. First half is decent but the main story gets going only in the second half and some scenes and dialogues in the second half are very good. Some logics go missing here and there. Second half makes up for the minor flaws in the first half. An even more engaging screenplay would have taken this movie to the next level. But nevertheless, this movie is a good attempt. No unwanted commercial elements have been added which is a good sign.
Verdict: A decent patriotic action thriller which is worth a watch.
Story: How does the district collector help in saving the life of a 4 year old girl who fell into the bore well forms the story.
Performances: Nayantara gave a subtle performance and emoted very well. All the supporting characters who acted as the villagers have given sincere performances.
Technicalities:Cinematography is natural. Dialogues are bold and slightly preachy. Screenplay is tight . Music by Ghibran is very good . There are a lot of emotional scenes which will connect to family audience.
Debutant director Gopi Nainar must be applauded for choosing a bold and crucial subject like this and dealing it in a very engaging way. The movie boldly questions the government on various issues.
Verdict:A bold socially relevant movie with good performances and good emotional content.
Story: There is a dangerous dacoit gang on the loose. How does Theeran(Karthi) handle the mission and put an end to the dacoits forms the story.
Performances:This is undoubtedly one of the best performances in Karthi’s career. This is a physically very demanding role and he does full justice to it. Rakul Preet Singh appears only for a short time but makes her presence felt. Abhimanyu Singh is scary and perfectly fits the villain role. All the supporting actors have added life to the proceedings.
Technicalities: This is a technically supreme film. Cinematography is superb and shot every well in Rajasthan episode especially. Music is good but bgm is outstanding. Stunts are incredible and provide an edge of the seat experience.
The director of this film H.Vinoth proves what kind of a genius he is. The detailing given in the film, the incredibly racy screenplay and taut narration give us an idea about his talent. The movie is about 2 hours 40 minutes long but doesn’t bore us even for a second. Screenplay has been written that tightly. First half and second half are equally racy and interesting. Interval episode and bus episode in the second half are major highlights.
This movie is a worthy tribute to the honest police officers of our country.
Verdict: A must watch edge of the seat action thriller !
Story:Arvind Krishna(Sri Vishnu) is an introvert and confused guy and has a problem in talking to girls. How does he overdone his inner problems and find the true love of his life forms the story.
Performances: Sri Vishnu does a neat job as a confused guy. Both the lead actresses Nivetha Pethuraj and Amrutha Srinivasan have done a fabulous job and gave cute performances. Sivaji Raja appears in a good role after a long time.
Technicalities: Cinematography, music and art work give a class and feel good flavour to the movie. Dialogues are good. Story is simple and sweet.
The movie has a highly entertaining and feel good first half. Second half gets a bit deviated and slow but never gets boring. Movie ends on a feel good note. Sumanth and Nara Rohith appear in cameos. Raj Kandukuri needs to be appreciated for encouraging feel good scripts like these. Vivek Athreya leaves a good mark with his first film.
Verdict: A feel good movie with good dose of comedy and drama .

DJ(Allu Arjun) is killing criminals secretly without letting his family know anything. DJ’s uncle commits suicide due to a company called Agri Diamond. What is that company , who is behind it and how does DJ put an end to them is the story.
Performances: Allu Arjun is in terrific form. He is highly energetic ut couldn’t match NTR’S performance in Adhurs. His dances are also not up to what we expect. But still, he did a great job. Pooja Hegde is the main attraction in the movie. She is drop dead gorgeous and will make guys go crazy. Rao Ramesh is at his usual best. All other actors have done their job well.
Technicalities: Cinematography to appreciable. Music and bgm are good by DSP. Others are all functional. Editing is okay.
The basic story of the movie is very routine and screenplay is also just about okay in the second half. First half is racy and has loads of entertainment. Second half begins on a highly predictable note but ends on a good note. Second half could have been even better with some good and fresh scenes. Harish Shankar does a safe job but more was expected from him.
Verdict: DJ is a typical commercial for with good amount of entertainment. Ignoring a slightly routine second half, this movie is definitely worth a watch .
Analysis: Finally, the most awaited teaser of the season has come out. Thala Ajith looks very fit and handsome as ever. Teaser has been cut in a stylish way focussing only on Ajith’s character. Nobody else has been shown in the teaser except for a one second frame of Vivek Oberoi.
The dialogues in the teaser will impress fans. Fights look stylish . All scenes seem to be shot on foreign land. Anirudh’s BGM is not upto the mark but he might surprise us in the movie. It’s very clear from the teaser that the movie is a high octane action thriller and Ajith is on national duty.
The teaser is a treat for Ajith fans . For others, the teaser might seem a bit ordinary. We cannot underestimate Siva as he has a clear idea on how to make a perfect commercial movie . So let’s wait and see.
Rating : 3.5/5
