Pawan Kalyan and Trivikram Srinivas combination are certainly going to be an interesting one. They have earlier come up with the films like Jalsa and Aththarintiki Daredi. They are back with the latest film titled Agnyathavaasi. The film marks 25th film in the career of Pawan Kalyan. The teaser and the recently released theatrical trailer have hiked the expectations on the movie. As it is a festival season, the buzz is also very high on the movie. Let us check out the review of the film here.
AB Group CEO Govind Bhargav aka Vindha (Boman Irani) and his son get killed by some unidentified persons. Vindha's wife Indrani (Khushboo) had to appoint a new CEO for the company for the good of the company.
Balasubrahmanyam (Pawan Kalyan) comes from Assam to inquire about the murders. At a later point in time, Indrani introduces Balasubrahmanyam as Abhishikth Bhargav, the elder son of Vindha. What happens after that? Why did Abishikth Bhargav grow up in exile? Who is behind the murders? forms the rest of the story of the movie.
The film entirely revolves around the protagonist role. Pawan Kalyan impressed in his usual style with his performance. Pawan's performance is surely going to be a treat for all the fans. Khushboo played a very important yet powerful role in the film. Her performance, especially in the second half, is impressive. Murali Sharma, Rao Ramesh and the other actors are okay in the movie. Aadi Pinisetty is usual in his role as a villain but his character lacks power. Keerthy Suresh and Anu Emmanuel who are the leading ladies of the film are just fine. All the others are okay and made their presence felt.
This is the debut for Anirudh and he did very well in the movie. His audio album was already a hit and the background score with which he came up is appreciable. The camera work of Manikanda is good. The action and chasing sequences were designed and choreographed well. As a dialogue writer, Trivikram was impressive but he failed as a director. The comedy track between Murali Sharma and Rao Ramesh is nice. The screenplay is a big minus point in the movie. The artwork is good. The editing is okay. The production values of the movie are grand.
Even though there is a reference for Virat Parvam, the movie doesn't really touch it completely. The film tries to have a philosophy in the background but it did not reach us. The film marks the weakest work from Trivikram Srinivas.
Though the film is a Freemake of Largo Winch, the director failed to execute it properly. A very flat first half offering nothing is a minus point and nothing happens even for the first thirty minutes of the second half.
Content wise, the film is a big letdown. This movie might satisfy Pawan Kalyan fans but disappoint Trivikram fans hugely.
