Eight months after the release of Sakuni, Tamil actor Karthi has made his comeback to Tollywood. He might have failed to impress Tamil audience with Alex Pandian, but its Telugu version Bad Boy will definitely rock the film goers in Andhra Pradesh. This movie does not have a solid story, but its masala elements and rich production values are its biggest strengths.
Bad Boy is a action masala flick and Karthi's electrifying performance is the main centre of attraction in the film. Devi Sri Prasad's music, Sarvanan's photography, amazing stunts and chasing scenes, good narration and dialogues, Santhanam's comedy, Anushka Shetty's glamour, beautiful art, costumes and locations are the other highlights of the movie. Its biggest drawbacks are tried-and-tested story and predictable plot.
As it is said earlier, Bad Body does not have a new story. Director Suraj has picked up an old story of 1980s, which glorified the heroism of a lead star. Using the latest technology, he has created a good entertainer. His narration is fast and engaging and he has a good tempo.
The movie begins with an amazing train chase sequence followed by Karthi's high-octane action sequence. Then comes comedian Santhanam to tickle your funny bones. The first half is racy and is a joy ride and you may not able to make out the story till the end. But the twist before the interval make you scratch your head. The second half is also interesting with lot of romance and action, but it is predictable.
