He comes to know that his father was murdered. Will he realise his dream of acting? How will he take revenge? are something that have to be watched on screen.
Saptagiri surprises everybody with his terrific dances. The audience are in a shock for the kind of dances he performed. His comedy timing and dialogue delivery are impeccable. But his on screen romance is not good. Roshini looks beautiful and gives glamorous treat. Siva Prasad performed well in his brief role. Posani Krishna is at his best as usual. Shakalaka Shankar brings a few laughs. Others contributed in their own way.
Songs are average and back ground score is good. Editing is not good and he could have trimmed down many scenes in the second half. Cinematography is not impressive.
Direction of the film is good in parts. The screenplay should have been better. The director handled comedy and sentiment part of the film very well. But he should have made the screenplay more racy.
Saptagiri is a star comedian in Tollywood. There are high expectations on the film as he is making his debut as a hero. The audience expect comedy from Saptagiri and there are many scenes in the film which will tickle your funny bones.
The proceedings in the beginning of the film will test your patience and since it is a revenge story, the sequences take up a good amount of time and they are irrelevant.
The first half completely downslides due to drag in scenes and somewhat unnecessary sequences. The comedy flavour is high in the second half.
Songs are another minus point and none of them are really entertaining. Romantic track between the lead pair could have been better. The director was well supported by the producer who didn't compromise on quality. Sapragiri's performance, comedy scenes and father sentiment are some of the plus points of the film. Emotional scenes in the second half and editing are some of the drawbacks of the film.
Overall, Saptagiri Express will entertain you in bits.
