Pawan Kalyan’s most awaited 25th movie hits the screen today with huge expectations among the fans. Trivikram Srinivas, noted for his gripping screenplay and dialogues is one of the main reasons for such expectations. However, the director failed to carry this tale in his routine style and has made it an average, rather below average flick.
Unlike other movies of Trivikram, there are no logics in this movie. You will not know why the characters behave in such an unjustified manner. There are very poorly dealt scenes in the entire flick like the fight between two female leads, no sink of the songs content and play (gaalivaaluga song) etc., below are some of such poorly dealt/illogical /unjustified scenes.
- It is not known/justified why Keerthi Suresh follows Pawan kalyan and falls for him
- Police raises certain questions and disappears after they ‘imagine’ the answers
- Why Pawan Kalyan reveals his identity all of a sudden?
- Security guards attacks Kalyan in his own office, followed by a funny song!
- Why the hero teases and bullies Rao Ramesh & Murli Sharma after he discovers they are innocent?
- Why a powerful counterpart like Aadi bows down and begs a dead man to fulfil his desires?
The screenplay of Agnyatavasi is surely not upto the mark or at least to the proven standards of Trivikram Srinivas. Dialogues are neither adequate nor impressive with few exceptions. You are likely to feel that a ‘same point’ is being repeated with failed attempts of entertainment. No dance numbers comes as a disappointment to PK’s fans. I heard someone saying after the film as ‘Anirudh’s music has gone waste. His song on Youtube was much better than this visual’. Anirudh’s background scores were impressive and the cinematography was good.
As a whole, Agnyatavasi has nothing new to offer. There could be some interesting bits and pieces which can keep you engaged for some time unless you are a diehard Pawan Kalya’s fan. You may give it a try this weekend at your sole discretion.
