Posani Krishnamurali is known for making weird films. He is a proven story and screenplay writer.However, when it comes to filmmaking, he failed as a director. The basic duty of a director is to explain what is in his mind in an interesting way and not just presenting the day-to-day happenings that occur in real life, as people get bored of watching them regularly on small screen. This time, he has decided to disrobe the political system and hence titled the film Dushasana.
The film starts with a man who has resemblances of Che Guevara (Srikanth), who claims to be a common man, preaches the values of a socialist society. After three or four scenes, the police enter the scene and take him into custody and the court orders them to admit him in a mental asylum. There he thrashes the doctors and hospital staff and takes away the police jeep. He kidnaps Chief Minister(Balayya)'s daughter(Sanjjana) with the help of a news channel reporter(Tashu Kaushik). He demands that he should be allowed to move freely in the society. He targets three ministers (Kota Srinivasa Rao, Chalapati Rao and Tanikella Bharani) and goes to their houses claiming that they were not resolving the problems faced by the people and slaps them with footwear in public. The condition of CM"s wife turns critical and Guevara allows Sanjjana to speak to her parents. Then, she reveals the truth that she was not really kidnapped but she is staying with him intentionally. What happens next should be seen on screen.
Srikanth, who earned good name as a family hero and gave a few hits with commercial and comedy films, has played the protagonist in the film. Its not known why he accepted such a role as the character neither has any emotion nor some thing to perform. Tashu Kaushik and Sanjjana have no big role to play. Kota Srinivasa Rao, Tanikella Bharani, and Chalapati Rao have done complete justice to their roles. Balayya has given a matured performance, while Brahmanandam, Krishna Bhawan and Kondavalasa Lakshmana Rao are wasted as there are no comedy scenes in the movie.
The camera work in the film has nothing great to boast of, while editing is up to the mark. Music by MM Srilekha is below average. The director, Posani Krishnamurali, who himself provided the story, dialogues and screenplay has made a vain bid to incorporate all his ideas in this film. In fact, he has really stretched the film to give a message. It is too rhetoric and has unnecessary violence. The director has no knowledge on law and has tried to impose his own theories in it. Especially, scenes like the hero carrying the body of his wife and making rounds on streets, to the police station and the municipalities is absurd. The most disgusting scenes like minister and his family taking mugs and walking on the roads for toilet, minister and his family forced to drink drainage water from tap embarrasses the audiences.
The film neither has any kind of entertainment nor a good message.
