Director Samuthirakani who earlier directed Shambo Shiva Shambo movie with Mass MahaRaj Ravi Teja is now coming up with yet another new concept movie Sangharshana, which is dubbed version of Tamil movie Poorali which is released simultaneously in Tamil and Telugu. KL Damodara Prasad will produce Telugu version.
The story begins on a rainy night, when Kumar (Sasikumar) and Vikram (Allari Naresh) ran from mental hospital and reaches Hyderabad and settles down in a house in a closed compound. They find jobs in a petrol bunk. His honesty and kind heartedness win people. As the part of the story, a girl named Bharati (Swathi) comes to his life. Like most of the movies, her initial wrong beliefs about him change as the time passes by. Soon, the love blooms between them.
But there lies a twist by the end of the first half. Kumar's past is mysterious and people are behind him to see him death. The second half has a quite a few flashbacks that make the audience to believe that the first and the second parts are two-different flicks.
Sasikumar steals the show with his costumes and his serious expressions. In fact, his one-liners and sense of humour at times get a huge round of applause. Allari Naresh has completely justified his role. Swathi has given his best but it is newcomer Nivetha and Vasundhara, who make a serious impression in he minds of the viewers. Ganja Karuppu, Jayaprakash, Soori are at their usual best. The performances of the cast are the biggest plus point of Poraali.
Coming to the technical department, music director Sundar C Babu has disappointed the audience. Adding to that his background score also falls flat. S. R. Kathiir's cinematography is praiseworthy. However, Samuthirakani's story is good but has jerks in its movement. The story runs in a slow pace at parts and confuses with its two many plots. Nonetheless, it has every ingredient to engage you till the end.
Overall, Sangharshana is a masala entertainer, which can be easily watched once.
Cast: Sasikumar, Allari Naresh, Swathi, Ganja Karuppu, Niveda, and others.
