Sashi Story:

Raj(Aadi) is a carefree youngster who is interested in music. He is least bit bothered about his studies, career and for that matter even his family members. But his life changes after he meets Sashi (Surbhi). How does Sashi alter the course of Raj’s life? Does he change for good or deteriorate further?

Sashi Performances:

Aadi plays a challenging role which has multiple shades and he portrays it with good ease and conviction. The rugged and intense look suits him very well and he excels in emotional sequences. Surabhi showcases her acting prowess with a fine performance. She looks really pretty on the screen. Ajay gets a good role and he does well. Rajeev Kanakala, Jayaram play supporting roles and they deliver what is expected of them. Raasi Singh plays a brief role and she is a decent performer. Vennela Kishore and Viva Harsha tickle the funny bones in a scene or two.

Sashi Review:

Sashi opens on a flat note with protagonist character establishment scenes and it never really gets going. Barring one or two, the remaining comedy sequences are bland and unfunny.

 
Aadi and Surabhi shoulder the film with their excellent performances. The songs are pleasing and carry a good vibe. All the songs are picturized very well especially the super hit ‘Oke Oka Lokam Nuvve’. In all fairness, the basic storyline is kind of interesting and evokes interest, but the problem is with the way the story is presented.
 
The director banks on the conflict point between the lead pair and he spends a whole of time building up to this particular juncture, only for it to bomb. The heroine doesn’t recognise the hero midway through the film and related scenes form the crux of plot. The tempo falls flat from here on and it is a downhill run.
 
The film is formulaic and outdated to say the least. Routine scenes take the centre stage in the second half and that is a big no-no for love dramas. The film ends on a predictable and dull note.

Sashi Verdict:

Sashi is a formulaic and outdated love drama that has very few things going its way. The viewers can easily predict what’s next and that kills off the excitement factor. With a better interval twist and succeeding sequences, the film might have made for a better watch.
