Savaari Movie Review
Nandu’s film thrives on few good moments
Raju (Nandu) hails from a poor economic background and he lives with his beloved pet horse Baadshah. They survive together with the help of the horse. One fine day, he discovers that his horse is down with some disease and it will need surgery to recover from the illness.
But, Raju doesn’t have so much money to get good treatment for Baadshah. In the meantime, he falls in love with Bhagi (Priyanka Sharma). What will he do to save his horse? Will his love succeed? Who is Nandu running away from?
Nandu is one of the most underrated actors in the Telugu film industry and he has proved this fact once again with his exceptional performance in the film.
Priyanka Sharma has an excellent screen presence and she lights up the drama whenever she appears on the screen. Her expressions are also in point.
Srikanth Reddy, who essayed the role of the main antagonist, did extremely well with his character. He is showcased as a deadly villain with epic comedy timing. The director has done a good job in tapping his timing which has worked in the film’s favor.
Director Saahith Mothukuri had an interesting presumes with his film Savaari and some of the moments in the film are a hoot. The sequences which are good are executed well and has conveyed proper emotions.
Nandu, who has been struggling to prove himself, has finally gotten a huge platform. He hoped to redeem himself and his performance will remind all directors to utilise him well in their films. So far, we have seen him in light roles but in Savaari, he has proved that he can pull off mass hero role with much elan.
Cinematography by Monish Boopathiraju is brilliant and each frame and the lighting used in the film have complimented the mood of the film extremely well.
Composer Sekhar Chandra’s music is an added advantage to the film. The two songs which received maximum attention even before the release were shot well and done full justice.
The execution of the film’s plot was an utter failure as the director couldn’t build up an interesting premise into an engaging story. This is the film’s downfall and it has affected the pace of Savaari.
Also, the films does not take logic into consideration and many sequences are too silly to look at. If only the director could have avoided the film’s logical mistakes, Savaari could have been a better film.
Savaari has an interesting premise which is let down by poor execution. Though Nandu has proved his mettle as an actor, the film doesn’t have enough substance to get going. Except for a few sequences, the film drowns in illogical scenes.
