Liger Telugu Movie Review
Happening hero Vijay Deverakonda’s Liger movie under the direction of Puri Jagannadh is out for public viewing today. Let’s analyse it.
Story: Liger opens with the childhood episodes of Vijay Deverakonda and eventually introduces him as a fighter for survival. The kind of problem does he faces due to stammering? His bonding with his mother( Ramya Krishnan). His dream is to become an international MMA champion. Liger’s love track with Ananya Panday, forms the main aspect.
Merits: Vijay Deverakonda carried the film on his shoulders single-handedly. His dedication to transforming into an MMA Fighter is outstanding and the amount of hard work he put in for the film is visible on screen.
Liger Movie Review In Telugu
For the first time, Vijay tried his leg in the dances and did a decent job in Akadi Pakadi song. Vijay’s dialogue diction with the stammering problem is okay but looks boring at parts.
Ramya Krishnan and other artists such as Rohit Roy, Getup Seenu are okay in the boxing coach and hero sidekick roles respectively.
Demerits: The film had potential to be decent is wasted by senseless writing and cringe-worthy scenes. Vijay Deverakonda tried his best and his body transformation is great but his stammering is annoying. The entire heroine track is awful. Other than a few moments, nothing else to mention about Ananya Panday‘s track. Mike Tyson’s character is ridiculous.
Earlier, Puri’s biggest strength used to be hero characterization and dialogue but in this movie, he went completely over the top and it goes into the cringe zone.
The audience come to the conclusion after watching the movie that this is not a right project for Vijay Deverakonda to enter the Pan India market.
Technical Crew: The cinematography work by Vishnu Sharma is alright. The editing by Junaid Siddiqui is okay but not worthy to mention here.
The background score composed by Sunil Kashyap is decent but looks loud at parts. The songs composed by different musicians are completely in non-sync with the film.
Production values for this high-budget movie are okay but the production design fails to register.
Verdict: To wrap up, Liger is undoubtedly a Vijay Deverakonda film as other than him no one seriously worked for the film. A few elevation scenes and a couple of dialogues worked along with the premise created. Vijay transformed well but the stammering dialogue delivery does not suit him at all. To simplify, Puri’s making comes as a main culprit for this actioner.
