Power Telugu Movie Review
Baldev Sahay (Ravi Teja) is a corrupt but daring and dashing Police Office. On one of the occasion, he tries to save Ganguly bhai (Sampath), a dread gangster. However the home minister Jayawardene (Mukesh Rishi) introduces another Ravi Teja, Tirupati, an aspiring Police officer in Baldev's place for carrying out a mission. Rest of the story is why the home minister resorts to a fake identity, how Tirupati helps Baldev Sahay's mission and how the two heroines help him in the mission.
Ravi Teja walked through both the roles of a Baldev Sahay and Tirupati very effortlessly. He looked macho and powerful as a dashing police officer and the role of Tirupati is a cakewalk for him. Both the heroines, Hansika as Nirupama and Regina as Vyshnavi do not gets the backing of the script but they provided the necessary glamour quotient for the film. Brahmanandham as SI Animuthyam rocked the screens once again. Sapthagiri entertained even though it is a little role. Mukesh Rishi and Sampath are good as villains. Ajay, Subbaraju and Brahmaji are okay as Police officers.
Bobby (KS Ravindra), a proven writer turns director with this film. He did not resort to too much experimentation with this film and stick to a routine proven story. However he backed the wafer thin story with a crisp screenplay and entertainment and managed to enthrall the audience. Despite being a formula film, Bobby's mettle can be seen in the little but crucial twists in the film. However the climax seems to be clinched and predictable.
The songs of the film are pleasing to ears but there is novelty at all in the music composed by Thaman. Except for the port scene where the back ground score is excellent, in the remaining scenes Thaman does almost nothing. Jaynan Vincent and Arthur Wilson have done good work with the camera. Kona Venkat along with two other writers had penned some excellent dialogues.
Finally, even though a nothing new concept and plot, Power has the elements required to bring the audience to theaters. Given the several mass elements, the film will go well with the B,C audience. If not for Aagadu coming in the next week, the movie should be a big hit for Ravi Teja.
