Stylish Star Allu Arjun already became a heartthrob to many of the young audiences with his six-pack body and with his stylish performance. Especially the film Arya under the direction of Sukumar earned him a star status among the young generation heroes. After a long gap, the same combination repeated and gossips made rounds that it would be a sequel to Arya and the media circulated the title as Arya-2. As it became popular among the fans and audiences, the unit had confirmed the same as the title, though it is neither a sequel to it nor all the artistes repeated in the cast. However, the names of characters continued in this flick too.
Arya (Allu Arjun) is an orphan who befriends Ajay (Navadeep). Arya is a very instinctive guy who takes tricky decisions in life. A millionaire adopts wants to adopt one of them. Arya wins the toss and sends Arya with them. The two grow up in different environment Ajay ignores Arya"s friendship. Ajay a software professional employs Arya. At this juncture Shanti (Kajal Agarwal) joins the company. Ajay loses his heart at the first sight and so does Ajay. Shanti learns about Arya as an innocent, she realizes that he was not such a soft person and is just acting. But nobody believes her.
Arya and Ajay both try ti impress her in their own way and Ajay enacts a drama and makes Arya unpopular. Shanti's father is making attempts to get her married to his rival"s son. On learning this, Arya goes to the village in Kurnool and plays another big drama and marries Shanti. But he calls Ajay and decides to unite them. He also makes arrangements to send them to the US. But Shanti"s father comes to know this and stops Ajay from leaving Kurnool. In order to get his friend Ajay, Arya takes the help of the rival factionists and somehow manages to take away Ajay and Shanti with him.
The major plus point in the film is the performance of Allu Arjun. His excellent dancing skills, perfect comedy timing, superb performance attracted the mass and young audiences and made the spell bound. All the other artistes including Navadeep, Kajal Agarwal, Shraddha Arya, Mukhesh Rushi, Sayaji Shinde also did complete justice to their roles. The director should be complimented for the excellent characterization of the hero, Allu Arjun, as the character runs in different shades with every-changing attitude. The movement of the character is beyond anybody"s imagination. Navadeep is okay in his role, while Kajal once again showed a nice performance. Another highlight of the film is the music by Devisri Prasad. The audio was a runaway hit and remained a chartbuster for a long time. The choreography of all the songs are really a feast to the eyes of audiences. Allu Arjun made several typical and diversified steps during all the songs. Action scenes by Ram and Lakshman are also good and stylish.
The director while concentrating more on the characterization of the hero ignored the length of the film and by the time he realized that it is prolonging, decided to wrap up the film in a huff-huff manner. As a result, the climax appeared to be too cinematic. In order to cover up the mess-up, the director chose to start the film with the climax scene and ended the film from the same point in the climax. But for the poor climax, the film is okay on all fronts. Another big draw back of the film is that Sukumar tried to downplay the factionalism and tried to evoke comedy from it. For hardcore fans of factionalism stories, the film appears to be truly cinematic.
For those who go to watch Allu Arjun film with some expectations, the film would be a true feast. What all one could expect from Allu Arjun"s film could be available in this movie. With the excellent dances and melodious audio, the film would surely be a big hit. The film had all kinds of masala that is needed for a commercial formula film and it would definitely ring the box office and would remain another milestone in Allu Arjun"s career.
