Overall, Palnadu is an engaging fare and it will impress Vishal's fans. It is a good entertainer for Family audience. But the lackluster narration in the second half might disappoint a few film goers.
On the whole, Panaadu entertains you only in bits and pieces. Vishal’s new avatar, Interval block and climax episode are some plus points. But a lack luster screenplay, and below par direction makes this film far from engaging.
Vishal is good and looks earnest. Barring a few intense expressions, there is not much going for him. The rest of the cast is wanting. Bharati Raj is saved by Subalekha Sudhakar's dubbing; otherwise he is plain.
Go and narrate the first 15 minutes of Palanadu to 10 movie-goers; it is very likely that at least 7 will correctly tell you what is in store after that.
