The hit Malayalam film Kali has been dubbed into Telugu after a year’s gap with the title hey pillagada. dulquer salman and sai pallavi star in the film that has hit the screens today. let’s see if it impresses the Telugu audience or not.
Reading: Hey pillagada movie review
hey pillagada is about a short-tempered guy named siddharth (dulquer salman), who often gets into trouble due to his short-tempered attitude. meanwhile, on a road trip with ella’s wife anjali de ella (sai pallavi), siddharth gets into a big argument with her and finds himself embroiled in a dreaded gang. what is that problem how did it turn into a violent incident? to know this, you have to see the movie on the big screen.
The performance of the main couple is a great advantage for the film. Dulquer Salman, who impressed the Telugu audience with his performance in Ok Bangaram, has once again done justice to his role as a hot-tempered guy. His performance in some key scenes adds a lot of depth to the proceedings.
sai pallavi’s performance is also natural and suitable for the mood of the film. especially, his performance in crucial pre-climax and climax sequences will get the audience involved in the film. the last fifteen minutes of the movie have good exciting elements.
One of the main drawbacks of the film is its slow-paced, typical Malayali-style narration. those expecting commercial elements like comedy tracks and good songs will be completely disappointed.
Most of the movie takes place with the main couple and you will hardly see any other characters that may not go well with the larger section of the Telugu audience. all those who want to see sai pallavi in another energetic role will be a bit disappointed.
director sameer thahir chose a simple point and executed it decently with some engaging moments. if he had added commercial elements like comedy and some romance, the result could have been much better. his typical Malayali storytelling style may not appeal to the Telugu audience. Gireesh Gangadharan’s cinematography is good as he handled the night shots well. Vivek Roughan’s editing is decent. gopi sundar’s music is good as his background score for some crucial scenes is impressive. the production values of this dub movie are good.
Overall, hey rascal is a simple story of a guy who gets into trouble because of his hot-tempered attitude. although the lead’s performance brings depth to the proceedings, the lack of commercial elements and the slow-paced narration may disappoint the Telugu audience that is used to popcorn entertainment. All of you who are desperate to see Dulquer Salman and Sai Pallavi’s chemistry on screen can give this film a chance but we warn you in advance that there is no romance as depicted on the movie posters.
