Stylish Star Allu Arjun and gorgeous beauty Shruti Haasan have teamed up for the commercial entertainer, ‘Race Gurram’. The movie has released across the world today and Surender Reddy has directed it. The film has been produced by Nallamalupu Bujji. Let us check out the movie now.
lucky (allu arjun) is a carefree boy who leads a relaxed life. his character is a complete contrast to his brother ram (shyam), who is a dedicated acp. the two think very differently and continue to have small fights.
luck meets spandana and it’s love at first sight for the hero. he sets out to woo her and leaves her with her babai (ms narayana). This carefree life is interrupted when Ram decides to oppose an evil and corrupt politician named Siva Reddy (Ravi Kishan).
Siva Reddy doesn’t hesitate to kill her opponents and Ram is on the hit list. lucky accidentally finds out and decides to teach siva reddy a lesson. he warns the politician to stay away from his family.
Siva Reddy, enraged, decides to take revenge on Lucky’s family and uses all his powers to harass them. lucky then decides to fight back his way, with the help of govardhan (posani krishna murali). he has kill bill pandey (brahmanandam) for company.
how lucky he manages to foil siva reddy is what this story is about.
points in favor:
allu arjun is improving as an actor with every movie and this movie is an example. he has done an excellent job in this film and his performance is a great asset. bunny’s comedy timing is perfect in the movie. he came up with some great dance moves for the movie.
shruti haasan doesn’t have much to do but she has a very good screen presence. his glamorous avatar is a huge draw for the masses. Saloni is fine as Shyam’s romantic interest.
brahmanandam has given another dazzling performance as ‘kill bill pandey’. he enters the film in the second half and manages to turn in a hilarious performance that will have good replay value. Posani entertains in a cute role.
ali and m.s. narayan has performed well. shyam is good as the honest acp. ravi kishan makes a good impression as the villain mla. the emotional scenes in the film, especially the scenes highlighting brotherly love, have come out well.
There are some good twists and turns in the movie and they’re enjoyable.
The story is pretty boring. there is some similarity with ‘lakshyam’. the movie also gets predictable at times.
The movie is too long and should have been trimmed to at least 20 minutes. most of this clipping should have been in the first half.
Although the songs are good, none of them have a good protagonist. as a result, promising songs like ‘down down duppa’ are wasted. they just get in the way of the flow of the story.
The cinematography is good and the images look bright and colourful. the editor has done a very average job and should have been more effective in the first half. the dialogues are quite good. thaman picks up the movie with solid background music in the second half.
surender reddy’s address is fine. you’ve played a safe game this time, instead of trying something radically new.
‘race gurram’ is a paisa vasool entertainer who makes you feel good when you leave the theater. brahmanandam, ali, posani and m.s.narayana will make sure you have a good time. allu arjun has improved tremendously as an actor and this movie will be one of the best commercial success of him.
