Asura Movie Review: Raw and Rebellious

Subscribe to Filmibeat

Nara Rohit, who always comes up with an interesting script, has been said to be trying out his luck with yet another promising film. Let us see if his film Asura, lives up to those promises he has made before release. 

Asura Story

The story is full of twists but to put it short without any spoilers, it is about a jailer called Dharma, who is straight forward and sincere at his work, but is often misunderstood to be arrogant. The hiccups he get to face in the journey and the way he fight backs the challenges is what Asura is all about. 


Nara Rohit has done a decent job as a powerful cop and his base voice comes as a blessing. He managed to intensify the depth in the dialogues and the script with his voice while he looked horribly flabby. It's high time he shed some kilos to look more presentable. 

Priya Banarjee, the obvious love interest of the hero, did her part well and added some spark in the songs. The main antagonist, Ravi Varma has finally got a lengthy role to play and has pulled off the crooked and cunning character pretty well. 

Technical Aspects

The movie, which was also produced the by hero himself, was good on technical front. The money seems to have gone at the right places. Camera work takes the pedestal and the songs were also choreographed well, though there is no much dance.

Few tunes from Sai Karthik clicked instantly at the theaters while he should have put little more effort on the background score. Dialogues were little confusing but they have a very deep meaning.

The first time director worked well on his script and made sure he gives a jolt every now and then with a twist in the tale. when the excitement in the tale gets killing and becomes predictable, director Krishna VIjay has come up with a change in the tempo, thankfully.


On the whole, Asura is an intense thriller with a good interval bang and an amazing warp at the wrap. It's ideal run time would be make it a perfect watch and Nara Rohit did keep up his words and passion for the craft.
