the wait is finally over as allu arjun’s mass artist sarrainodu has released far and wide with great fanfare. directed by boyapati sreenu, let’s see how this movie turns out.
gana(allu arjun) is a former military man who returns home to do good for society. one fine day he helps a whole village and also saves maha lakshmi (rakul preet) unaware that she is under threat from the very powerful dhanush (aadipinisetty).
An upset Vairam Dhanush addresses Gana, who is busy with his own life and about to marry Hansita Reddy (Catherine Tresa). the rest of the story is about how he wins he faces vairam dhanush and saves the whole family from him.
first of all, credit must go entirely to director boyapati sreenu for showing allu arjun in a complete makeover. From the very first frame, it’s Bunny and her impressive screen presence that steals the show entirely. one can easily tell that a good actor bunny is staying late out of work. he sheds the boy-loving image of him and transforms into a young man angry at sarrainodu. Whether it’s her delivery of dialogue, gestures, and dances, bunny’s hard work shows clearly on screen.
sarrainodu wouldn’t have had the necessary punch if it wasn’t for aadi. the young actor looks menacing as the bad guy and plays his character with aplomb. the way his role is shown and the way aadi confronts bunny in many scenes is just excellent. The first half of the movie is very entertaining and the interval explosion is sure to give you an adrenaline rush.
with sarrainodu, you can see rakul as the actress and not as the star. Catherine is also convincing as MLA. Srikanth plays her supporting role well. after a long interval brahmi’s comedy fits in nicely and provides enough comic relief. all the action sequences deserve a special mention and the way they’ve been conceived is simply superb.
sarrainodu has a pretty weak history and doesn’t have anything good to brag about. after a forceful first part, the process bogs down towards the last fifteen minutes. With the high-octane thrills and action sequences set by then, the filmmakers are forced to end the film on a predictable note.
the characterization of bunny, his father and srikanth seems jaded most of the time until the climax. the way bunny’s character is forced to finish off rakul preet by sacrificing catherine seems a bit lame. the film has too much violence that might not go down well with family audiences. The creators should have added more confrontation scenes between Aadi and Bunny to further elevate the process.
thaman must be given a lot of credit for his impressive musical score. all the songs are a huge plus and its excellent background score elevates the movie in a big way. the dialogues are good and the art direction too. geetha arts production values are excellent as the film looks very image rich.
referring to the director boyapati, he has done an excellent job with the film. the way he has elevated both bunny and adi seems quite refreshing. despite the fact that he chooses a routine plot line, the way in which he has addressed the mass audience and given it the necessary dose is superb. If he had been able to handle the last fifteen minutes of the film well, the end result could have been even better.
Overall, sarrainodu is definitely an oora crowd entertainer. the film has many elements that will captivate fans and the general public. Bunny’s amazing transformation, Aadi’s screen presence, and amazing action sequences are all great assets. if you don’t mind the excess of violence and manage to endure the last fifteen minutes, you can happily watch sarrainodu, who will end up being your typical masala artist this summer.
