Aata Arambham is the Telugu version of director Vishnuvardhan's Tamil film Aarambam. The movie, which has hit the screens today, is nothing, but glorification of Ajith Kumar's heroism. The director has laced a mediocre storyline with some rich production values and made it entertaining.
Aata Arambham is an action-packed entertainer with a few masala elements. Lead actors' performances are the main highlights in the movie. Vishnuvardhan's engaging screenplay and a few punch dialogues, Yuvan Shankar Raja's music and background score, Om Prakash's cinematography, stunning action and chase scenes, beautiful art direction and exotic locales are other attractions of the film.
Vishnuvardhan has chosen a cliched revenge drama, which is set in the backdrop of 26/11 serial blasts in Mumbai, and blended it with some of the very interesting twists and turns in it. He has very good grip over the tempo. He has loads of action and excitements in the first half of the film, which has a fast-paced narration. He has maintained the same pace in the second half too, but the climax is predictable.
