Supreme, directed by Anil Ravipudi, starring Sai Dharam
Tej and Raashi Khanna, was well-promoted as the perfect summer
entertainer. Read the review to know, if it has lived to up to the
Balu (Sai Dharam Tej), a cab driver falls in love with Bellam
Sridevi (Raashi Khanna), a police inspector at the first sight and
just when he thinks his life is as simple as that, he gets to meet
an orphan boy, Rajan. What role does the little boy play in the
life of Balu and how a cab driver ends up saving the livelihood of
thousands of farmers, forms the rest of the story.
Sai Dharam Tej is like a live-wire on screen and his gifted
screen presence, energy and dances make him this 'perfect
commercial hero'. Though he needs to improve a bit in the emotional
sequences, he has shown a considerable growth from film to film.
Too many references to his uncles (Chiranjeevi & Pawan Kalyan)
and the imitation of them might give you a few face-palm moments,
if you are not a 'family fan'.
Raashi Khanna will leave you in splits in some scenes and it is
Vennela Kishore, who keeps you entertained all the way. And the
little boy Mikhail Gandhi, who played Rajan, was the real
Supreme mirrors the command of a director on his craft.
The writer and director Anil Ravipudi, though did not tell you a
new story, he made sure he gave the right moments at regular
intervals to keep you glued to the film. A fresh comedy track will
crack you up and an equally well-written sentiment, laced around
Rajan's character, enhanced the feel.
In spite of taking a few commercial liberties and losing the
tempo at the beginning of the second half, he got hold of the movie
like a master, post that. Music by Sai Karthink was okay and
cinematography could have been better. Editing and production
values complimented the film well.
Supreme is a neatly executed commercial entertainer
with its share of highs and some cinematic liberties. Give it a
watch, if you are looking out for a film with the right measure of
comedy and emotion.
