Agnyaathavaasi Movie Review

Abhishekta Bhargav (Pawan Kalyan) is the ‘prince in exile’ brought up without the greed of a materialistic life. The first son of Govinda Bhargav/Vinda (Boman Irani) and the apple of his stepmother Indrani’s (Kushboo) eye, he is forced to come out of hiding when his father and younger brother are murdered in cold blood. He must now not just find his father and brother’s killer, but must also prove himself the heir to the fortune, if only just to stop it from falling into the wrong hands.

Plagiarism and inspirations aside, the movie is a mess right from the beginning. There are multiple issues here. Trivikram, the director, has got the best visuals in his career, but at the same time, Trivikram the writer has delivered his worst. Combine these two with a script that is all over the place we have an unmistakable mess. The whole entertainment angle in the film, which involves a romantic track and comedy in the workspace is a total failure. There is nothing going on in either of them. They add to the length and provide endless boredom. The repetitiveness of Pawan Kalyan in comedy makes matter worse.

Another issue that the film continues to grapple with is the characterisation of its lead actresses. Both Keerthy Suresh and Anu Emmanuel have underwritten roles, and they appear like a genie only when ‘script’ demands their presence. Pun intended. There’s a dialogue in the film which goes like, “When you don’t have new ideas, you just rehash old ideas.” However logical it might seem, this aspect tests our patience as far as the romantic subplot is concerned. Aadhi Pinisetty, Kushbu and Boman Irani too are lost in the proceedings, and they just exist to extoll the film’s lead character played by Pawan Kalyan.
