Victory Venkatesh is a class hero, who has huge amount of family audience in Andhra Pradesh and around the world. But after long time, he has done full length action in his latest outing Shadow, which has been made on par with Hollywood standards. Director Meher Ramesh has shown Venky in a very stylish way. His work will impress both class and mass audience.
Telugu movie Shadow is a revenge drama and the director has blended it with all masala elements like action, comedy, romance and sentiment in it. Victory Venkatesh's stylish performance is the main highlight in the movie. Meher Ramesh's screenplay and funny and punch dialogues, S Thaman's music, Prasad Murella's picturisation, amazing action scenes, beautiful costumes, makeup and art directions are its other attractions. But the predictable story and monotous and slow-paced narration in the second half is the main drawback of the film.
Shadow has a routine storyline, but Meher Ramesh has made it interesting watch by including twists and turns. It should be mentioned here that the director is known for copying scenes from other Telugu films and he has continued it here in Shadow too. There are a few scenes, which have been copied from hit movie, and Gabbar Singh Anthyakshari scene is the best example for it.
The movie revolves around a guy taking revenge on an international don. Besides stunning action, the director has also included sister sentiment and a lot of comedy to woo Venkatesh's family audience. He has got good grip over the narration of whole show. The first half of the film is a laugh riot and Venkatesh tickles your funny bones as memory loss patient. This portion also has lot of action, family sentiment and entertainment.
