Review By : Movie Run Time : 2 hours 40 minutes Censor Rating : UA Genre : Action, Drama

Production: B. K. Gangadhar Cast: Dhruva Sarja, Rashmika Mandanna Direction: Nanda Kishore Music: Chandan Shetty Cinematography: Vijay Milton Editing: Mahesh S Distribution: Sri Jagadguru Movies

The dubbed Tamil version of the much-awaited Kannada starrer Pogaru has an ensemble star cast of Prince Dhruva Sarja, the darling of the masses, Rashmika Mandanna to the support of Raghavendra Rajkumar, P Ravi Shankar, Sadhu Kokila, Kotteri Prathap and others.

Released by Rockfort Entertainment, the promos have raised the expectation quotient. In all fairness, the honest efforts are worth a watch, going miles to savour.

Not in a rush to do anything and everything - three films in a span of seven years from the debut time of Aadhuri, Dhruva exudes enough charm to a script line, which would have been right down the street of acclaimed filmmaker Shankar.

Debutant Nandakishore, for the Tamil audience, weaves a web of characters, loaded with a huge slice of action to make his call card a moment to cherish and watch for. The director, to his credit, gives equal importance to even the fringe characters, which had been the hallmark of Shankar's pointers.

A youth taking the cudgels for the middle-class segment gives enough fodder for the unit to unleash a flurry of action, at regular intervals. Possibly, the best is reserved in the awe-striking climax where a four-member international body-building stalwarts engage the battery charged Dhruv in riveting high octane stuff. For the younger audience, it is a feast and a perfect dessert of an offering which does not hold its punches.

Rap composer Chandan Shetty too knows the pulse of the audience, his number Karabuu having been lapped by many eyeballs. Thrust has been on the re-recording, which has no respite for the audience. You just cannot afford to miss and blink.

Reportedly, Dhruv had shed 40 kilos to give the fillip to the schoolboy character. That sets the mood and momentum to decipher as to what could be the showroom denouement. Dhruv is at home in the comedy segments, helped to a larger extent by the racy dialogues. A quiz contest involving him and an opponent, pining for the hands of the leading lady is another high point.

A well-punctuated storyline, whistle-worthy dialogues, awe-inspiring action sequences and songs are the impetus for the director to push his limits. The film revolves around Shiva, a roughneck who gets the support of people as he fights injustice that troubles the common man.

On the flip side, the duration might be a hindrance to a set of audiences and the script will better appeal to the masses who like commercial potboilers. Tamil audiences who watch this film for Rashmika Mandanna after the songs and promos might feel a little disappointed with her less screen time in the first half and there aren't much romantic portions in comparison to her previous dubbed Tamil films.

Dhruva, during his interaction with the media, had revealed that it was a tough task for him to lose and gain weight instantly. With a brand name of Vijay Milton as cinematographer and the astute editing of S Mahesh, Dhruva has been given the best of the worthies by the production house.

Well, it could be a perfect gift in memory of Dhruv's elder brother Chiranjeevi.


Verdict: Dhruv Sarja is a sight to behold in this action commercial entertainer.
