Superstar Mahesh Babu and Keerthy Suresh starrer Sarkaru Vaari Paata under the direction of Parasuram has hit the screens today. Let’s see how it is.
Being a casino addict, Keerthy(Keerthy Suresh) traps a private loan lending company owner Mahesh ( Mahesh Babu) for $10K. Soon after knowing that Keerthy cheated him, Mahesh lands in India in Vizag to recover the amount from her father Rajendranath (Samuthirakani), a rich businessman.
How will Mahesh approach Rajendranath? Will Rajendranath pay back the amount lent by her daughter to Mahesh? How is a social issue related to the Indian banking system interconnected with the cat and mouse game between Mahesh and Rajendranath? To know that you have to watch the film in the nearest theatres.
Mahesh Babu is energetic on-screen and is the main reason for watching the film. He just nailed it with his screen presence and energetic performance throughout the film. In one word, he carried the entire film on his shoulders and impresses with his amazing dialogue delivery. His dance movements in Ma Ma Mahesha’s song is a surprise package in the film.
While Keerthy Suresh is cute with her makeover looks, her chemistry with Mahesh adds an advantage to the first-half proceedings. The love track between the lead pair in the first half has lighter moments.
On the other hand, Samuthirakani is apt in his role as a seasoned politician. His confrontation episodes with Mahesh in the second half will be loved by the mass audience.
Comedian Vennela Kishore is okay in his hero’s sidekick role. Actress Nadiya did her purposeful role quite decently. Other artists who did key roles are okay in their roles.
Director Parasuram tried to present a money-related social issue by incorporating enough commercial elements into the narrative. Though the director succeeded in presenting Mahesh Babu in an energetic avatar, his outdated execution and scene order in the second half come as a big letdown.
If Parasuram would have taken care in writing a better scene order, the result would have been even better.
Music by Thaman is superb as all the songs are superhit audio-wise and even more appealing on screen. His background score elevates a couple of heroic scenes and action blocks.
Madhi’s cinematography is top-notch as he showcased the entire film on a lavish note with his framing and lighting setup. While editing by Marthand K Venkatesh is okay, the artwork is good. All the bank sets are erected nicely.
All in all, Sarkaru Vaari Paata is Mahesh Babu’s energetic one-man show and watching him on screen is a treat to all his fans. But sadly, the routine template execution comes as the main demerit for this commercial drama. All we suggest is to watch the film with low expectations and Mahesh will satisfy with his screen presence.
