    Sye Raa: Noted Critic Slams Chiranjeevi's Movie, Says It Does Not Mean Serious Business

    |

    Sye Raa, produced by 'Mega Power Star' Ram Charan, is arguably one of the biggest and most eagerly awaited movies of the year. The magnum opus features Chiranjeevi in an intense new avatar, which has created a great deal of buzz amongst movie buffs. Now, here is some shocking news for Mega fans. In a hard-hitting article, critic Subhash K Jha has ripped apart Sye Raa, calling it a rehash of Bollywood classics such as Kranti and Mard.

    In his scathing piece, published in the National Herald, Subhash K Jha claimed that Sye Raa does not 'mean serious business', and slammed the makers for the unnecessary dependence on 'oomph' and style. He also claimed that the 'gora log' does not sound convincing as their dubbing has a Hyderabadi feel to it.

    "I am not sure of where the British baddies in Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy come from. But their accents seem suspiciously Hyderabadi. Maybe after the foreign actors shot, the producers ran out of budget and got locals to dub."

    Subhash K Jha, however, praised Chiranjeevi's on-screen daredevilry, and said 'Megastar' seems to 'have fun with his part'. He also liked Amitabh Bachchan's terrific voice-over in the Sye Raa Hindi trailer.

    "To his credit, Chiranjeevi seems to have fun with his part. He reminds me more of Robin Hood than Mangal Pandey which is not a bad thing in a film that reduces the pitfalls of colonization to a revenge formula," wrote Subhash K Jha.
