Kavacham is a film which needs to click at any cost as Bellamkoda Srinivas’s last film, Sakshyam was a big flop. He plays a tough cop in Kavacham which has hit the screens today. Let’s see how it is.
The story is set in Vizag where Vijay B(Bellamkonda Srinivas) is a sincere cop and saves everyone from corruption. His life becomes hell when he gets framed in the mysterious kidnapping of an innocent girl(Mehreen). But there is more to this story as Vijay’s love interest, Samyukta(Kajal) is also dragged in all of this. Rest of the story is as to how Bellamkonda takes things in his hands and finds out who the actual culprit behind all this is.
The story takes forever to enter the main plot as the first half is filled with so many wayward moments. As there is no main story during this time, Kajal and Srinivas’s love track is established and only during the interval point, the story moves ahead with Mehreen’s character.
Things become interesting only during the interval time and from there, the film has some good moments here and there. But that too has been spoilt during the pre-climax with too many twists thrown at the audience which bore them completely.
Neil Nitin Mukesh’s role is not executed well. If his track would have been introduced at the beginning itself, the audience would have found things interesting. But to keep the audience on the edge of their seats, so many characters are unleashed and this is where the film falls down.
Performance wise, Bellamkonda, looks a bit young as a cop and does his best to elevate the proceedings. Kajal has the main role but she is not utilized well in the proceedings. Mehreen is neat in her small role and so was Posani.
Minus Points :
Boring first half
Lack Lusture romantic track
Kavacham is a film which had a good point but that is executed in a wayward manner. To make things interesting for the audience, way too many subplots have been introduced and this is where the film goes down and disengages the viewer. As there is no entertainment value in the film, and there are also a bunch of other releases this week, the takers for Kavacham would be quite low. Overall the film is a good script gone wrong.
Rating : 2.5/5
