Icon Star Allu Arjun and star director Sukumar’s highly-anticipated film, Pushpa-The Rise has hit the silver screens today. Let’s see how it is Pushap Review..

Story:
Being a normal sandalwood worker, How a guy named Pushpa Raj(Allu Arjun) by overtaking existing mafia emerges as syndicate leader in the red sandalwood business? His conflict with the local sandalwood mafia head Mangalam Siru( Sunil) and face off with the cop Bhanwar Singh ( Fahad Fasil) forms the main USB of the film.

Positive Points:
Without any doubt, Allu Arjun is a major asset for this actioner. His rustic transformation as Pushpa Raj and dialogue delivery in Chittor accent adds authentic flavour for the proceedings. Bunny’s hardwork and dedication in portraying the Sandalwood smuggler character is clearly visible on the screen.Bunny’s mannerisms and electrifying screen presence breathes life even into the flat and unengaging scenes.

Looks-wise, heroine Rashmika Mandanna is decent and her chemistry with Allu Arjun is okay. Malayalam actor Fahad Faisal’s getup is good and gave a convincing performance in the limited screen presence.

Sunil as the main villain is okay in his role. His makeover as a negative shaded Sandalwood syndicate boss is good. Kannada actor Dhanunjay gave impressive performance. Samantha’s item song will be loved by the masses.

Negative Points:
Except for Allu Arjun, other characters in the movie are not designed in a proper manner. Starting with the heroine Rashmika, the establishment of the roles of other artists like Anasuya, Sunil, Fahad Faisal is not done on in a right manner.

After a decent first half, the pace of the film drops drastically in the second half. Adding to it, so many unwanted scenes in the narrative comes as a minus for the film.

Technical Crew:
Devi Sri Prasad did a decent job with the songs but he fails to impress with his background score. Expect for hero introduction and a fight sequence in the second half, Devi’s background score fails to register.

Sound mixing and VFX work is a big letdown for the movie. The cinematography work by Miroslaw is nice as he showcased the natural forest locations in a fantastic way. Editing by Karthika Srinivas-Ruben is not up to the mark. Production values for this high budget movie are rich.

Sukumar directs Pushpa and his narration during the first half is fine but the director has diluted the audience intrest with some unnecessary cliched scenes in the latter half due to which the impact fades away towards climax.

Verdict:
All in all, Pushpa is Allu Arjun’s show all the way. His dialogue delivery, physical transformation and screen presence adds some much authentic flavour to the film. But on the flipside, lengthy runtime, dragged second half with uneven screenplay comes as a minus for the film. Considering the craze and hype, Pushpa may get good collections during the first weekend but may struggle later at the box office. What we suggest is that if you are a fan of Allu Arjun, watch the film for his swag and rustic makeover.
