Aagadu is a high-octane action movie with a high comic
quotient and Mahesh Babu's electrifying performance is the main
highlight of the film. Srinu Vaitla's engrossing screenplay and
punch dialogues, SS Thaman's trendy songs and amazing background
score, KV Guhan's beautiful picturisaion, some rib-tickling comedy
scenes, Tamanna's glamour, Shruti Hassan's item number, wonderful
choreography of action and dance, exotic locales and beautiful art
direction and costumes. The lack of a fresh in the storyline is the
biggest drawback of the movie.
For Aagadu, Srinu Vaitla has chosen a routine revenge
drama, which has been penned by Anil Ravipudi, Upendra Madhav and
Praveen Varma, but he has written an interesting screenplay. The
director is known for his unique comedy and punch liners and he has
made sure that they are the USP of Aaagdu too. He has
included all the commercial ingredients and has amazing grip on the
narration of the movie.
Aagadu opens with Mahesh Babu's stunning entry with a
punch dialogue. There is no much growth in terms of story in first
half of the movie, in which MEP game show is the main highlight. A
couple of romantic songs and a host of comedians keep you
entertained in this portion. A couple of twists just before and
after the interval gain moment for the film. The second half has a
story, but it is routine and predictable. Moreover, it is not as
entertaining as the first half. The climax is good.
Coming to the story, Shankar (Mahesh Babu) is an orphan brought
up by Raja Rao (Rajendra Prasad). But Raja Rao mistakes Shankar on
one occasion and drives him out of the house. Later, Shankar
becomes an Encounter Specialist and gets posted in Bukkapatnam,
where the atrocities of Damodar (Sonu Sood) is skyrocketing.
Damodar wants to build a power project there and he goes on
elimination spree on those opposing it. At this juncture, Shankar
comes to know about a shocking truth which turns professional
rivalry in to personal too. What happens next is the crux of the
As a cop, Mahesh Babu has done a fantastic job and he is the
showman in Aagadu. He is a treat to watch in action and
dance sequences and he will rock you with his amazing dialogue
diction. Tamanna has also done well and she impresses you with her
glamour. Her chemistry with Prince is good to watch on

Aagadu has brilliant production values and SS Tamana's
music is the main highlight in the technical front. His soundtracks
have already become chartbusters. His background score is awesome
and it elevates several scenes. KV Guhan's cinematography is
fantastic and it is another highlight of the film. The choreography
of action and dance sequences is simply superb. Other technical
departments have also delivered fantastic works.
Overall, Aagadu has rich performances by lead actors
and superb production values, but the movie lacks a fresh and
interesting storyline. It is a routine revenge drama that rocks you
with its mass elements. It's a good time-passer for this weekend.
