Agnyathavasi is undoubtedly the biggest ever Telugu film release after Baahubali series. The film has been sold for record price. the reason for this is Pawan Kalyan. Even though his last three films have been duds in box office, his combination with Trivikram, who is known as Words of Wizard had raised expectations on the project. Let us see how the film is”
Director : Trivikram
Producer : Radha Krishna
Music Director : Anirudh
Starring : Pawan Kalyan, Anu Emmanuel, Keerthy Suresh, Khushboo, Rao Ramesh, Murali Sharma, Adhi
The film is about Abhishikt Bhargav aka AB (Pawan Kalyan) who is in exile. After his father Govinda Bhargav aka Vinda (Boman Irani), an entrepreneur MD for AB Group of companies and his younger son are shot dead by his rivals in two different incidents, AB comes back. Everyone thinks Vinda has no successors to lead the empire left alone by widow Indrani (Khushboo).
Abhi now decides to take revenge against the criminals behind his father and brother’s murders to land in AB office with false identity of Balasubramanyam to trap Sukumari (Keerthy Suresh) and Surya Kantham (Anu Emmanuel), daughters of Sharma and Varma. In the process to usurp the crown, AB comes across many hurdles as Sitaram (Adhi Pinishetty) is also the prime contender for CEO seat and kingpin behind crimes. How AB proves his identity through a legal will written by Vinda is rest of the film.
Pawan Kalyan rocks and has done his best. His comic timing has worked big time. He is great as usual. Khusboo is good as Pawan’s step mother. The heroines are wasted. Adhi is good in his evil role. The comedy track of film is average, therefore comedians fail. Remaining cast and crew do not have much to do.
DIRECTION AND TECHNICAL REVIEW
Trivikram has failed big time and this can be called as his weakest film ever. He fails as writer this time. His dialogues do not have the punch. He has given more importance to technical aspects rather than script. Editing of the film is poor. Camerawork is very good. Music by Anirudh is good. However Telugu people would have preferred DSP or Thaman anyday.
The film looks like another big disaster on cards for Pawan. There is no way the film can get 125 crores with this script. If you are an hardcore Pawan fan, you can watch the film, so as to reduce the losses. Or else better skip it.
