Railway Raju (Sree Vishnu) is a doting son and loving brother who aspires to become a cricketer. He even has a beautiful lover Nitya (Tanya Hope).
However his life turns upside down and dreams get dashed when he was suspected of having links with the naxals by the honest and strict police officer Imtiaz Ali (Nara Rohit).
How Railway Raju proves his innocence and will Imtiaz Ali allow him to do so should be found on screen by watching the film in theatres.
Nara Rohit performed his role quite perfectly. He should however pay attention to his physique. His fans will be disappointed as his role is very limited. His dialogue delivery and diction is good. He showed good expressions and emotions to attract viewers.
Sri Vishnu stole the show and he got a good role to show his talent. Tanya Hope got limited scope to perform. Brahmaji performed his role quite well. Others performed in their roles according to their characters.
Sai Karthik failed to impress with his music. None of the songs are attractive. They acted as speed breakers slowing the pace of the film. Suresh Bobbili's background score however elevated the scenes. Cinematography is attractive bringing the 90s feel to the film with the camera work and angles.
Sagar K Chandra on debut impressed with his story, screenplay and direction. He should have concentrated on the second half where film drifted away from the main plot. Editing is OK and could have been better in the second half. Dialogues made good impact. Production values are good.
Nara Rohit, Sri Vishnu
Story, Screenplay, Direction
Lack of commercial elements
Slow pace in between, drags
Sagar K Chandra who made his debut with this film selected a completely different genre and even emerged successful by making good impact with his story, screenplay and direction. He did not make the mistakes of many earlier directors who got carried away to load the entire film with preaching's over police sacrifices, naxalism, liberalization, privatization and globalization. First half starts at slow pace and gradually picks speed with the entry of Nara Rohit. It ends with good interval twist.
Second half slows down with focus shifting on Sri Vishnu. Nara Rohit once again enters to end the film with a intense and emotional climax. Sagar K Chandra showed good talent though he deviated from the subject in the second half which slowed the film's pace. One should watch how B,C viewers receive the film as it lacks commercial elements.
Appatlo Okadundevadu makes good impact.
