Stylish Star Allu Arjun and the massy director Boyapati Srinu's Sarainodu is aimed to push the actor an inch closer to the masses. Read the review to know whether the mission is a 'blockbuster'.
The film's story is precisely about this young man, Gana (Allu Arjun), whose job is moral policing. Though his treatment involves violence, he stands by the justice. On that note, how did he end the atrocities of Vyram Dhanush (Aadhi Pinisetty), the son of the State's Chief Minister, who misuses the power to the fullest for his individual benefits? What role does a farmer's activist (Sai Kumar) and his daughter (Rakul Preet) has to play in this tale forms the crux.
Allu Arjun was quite a revelation in the film and we must say he has been raising the bar with every performance. His fiery attitude, dances, comedy timing, and his own flavor of dialogue delivery have all come in a package.
Rakul Preet Singh, though has nothing much to do other than whimpering, she was impressive as an innocent belle. Catherine Tresa felt like a misfit in the MLA role. Srikanth, Aadhi Pinnisetty, Vidyuth Lekha contributed a lot to the film.
Technical Aspects & Analysis:
Sarinodu is a technically rich commercial film with a top class sound mix and stunning cinematography. Rishi Punjabi's camera work and the lighting of the film will stand as one of the biggest assets, which has set the mood of the movie. A fresh range of camera angles and thumping background score by Thaman elevated the emotions, rightly.
However, the story and direction of the film by Boyapati Srinu was so rotten that even the best efforts put in by the cast and technicians, loses its charm. The comedy scenes of Brahmanandam were unendurable and Catherine Tresa's role as an MLA, was totally half-baked and unconvincing.
But, the screenplay saved the film partly as the high-octane elements come at regular intervals, to keep the tempo balanced. The interval bang and the pre-climax portions compensates for the painful comedy track and sloppy scenes in the second half. The songs were badly conceived and the editing was a pass muster.
On the whole, Sarainodu is a well-blended commercial mix, with a bit of sentiment, comedy, glamour and a lot of action. Give it a watch for the blockbuster performance of Allu Arjun and of course, the film served its purpose in showcasing the actor as a potential mass icon.
