As you all aware Dhrishyam (2013) a sensational hit in Malayalam written and directed by Jeethu Joseph and when Telugu producers decided to remake with Venkatesh and Actress Meena under Sri Priya lot of questions arise how Sri Priya can handle the movie, and also it will be a challenge for Victory Venkatesh as he has not seen a Solo Hit in years.
Rambabu is a respected person in a village near Vizayanagaram and living with his wife Jyothi and two beautiful children Anju and Anu. When Anju goes for a nature camp, Harsha an IG’ Son Caught Anju in an unexpected situation, and Jyothi came to know harsha black-mailing Anju, with an unfortunate event Harsha Killed by an accident, and the rest of the story how rambabu saves his family.
Venkatesh, In this generation I can’t think any other hero will try these type of role and for him its a cake walk, and should appreciate Venkatesh accepting the role.
Meena suited the role as a good wife, and its a good comeback for her, Baby Esther who done the original role in malayalam given a good performance, Nadia is OK as an IG and Naresh and Chaitanya Krishna both has a limited roles but done well, and the other two Keys roles are one Anju(Krutika), she done a fabulous job as and she has a very good future and Ravi Kale, this character needs to show the cruelty of a cop and he done an amazing job on the interrogation scenes, another notable person is Paruchuri Venkateswara Rao.
Director Sripriya was very careful and did not make any changes to the original, the entire movie credit goes to his exceptional writing by Jeethu Joseph, Background score by Sharreth was good. To do these type of films actors and producers need a lot of gut, as telugu viewers are used to the commercial and these content type thriller movies are not a commercial success in the past such as Eenadu, and Venkatesh is apt to this role he has done non-glamour roles many times in the past, the movie keeps you engage until the end with the gripping story, as the movie does not much offer on the first 45 minutes director tries to put some romantic scenes between the lead pair which gets awkward but as the story goes these un necessary scenes are not noticeable. Movie made with a very low budget with that movie has a good potential to be in profit zone.
