Stylish star Allu Arjun and ace director Trivikram’s Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo has hit the screens today amidst huge expectations among the audience. Let’s analyze it.
In a crucial hospital setup, Murali Sharma swaps his newborn baby with a baby boy born in a rich family. Eventually, the kids grow up and Murali Sharma names the swapped kid as Bantu (Allu Arjun) and his own kid is named Raj (Sushanth). The conflict point in the plot raises in the form of Appalnaidu(Samuthirakani), who targets Sushanth’s father(Jayaram), the head of Vaikunthapuram. How does Bantu get stuck in this entire setup? Will, he get to know about his childhood secret? To know that, you have to catch the film in the theaters near you.
Talented director, Trivikram plays it safe this time by picking up a simple theme and presenting it in his own vintage style. Though the plotline is predictable, his writing and narration dominates the proceedings and creates magic. The emotional scenes are handled nicely and Trivikram’s pen power is showcased yet again in the family scenes.
Coming to the artists’ performances, Allu Arjun is the showman of this film as he dominates the entire film with his energetic screen presence. His comic timing, performance during emotional scenes are impressive and added advantage for the film. Pooja Hegde is adorable on-screen and her chemistry with Bunny works big-time in songs like Butta Bomma and Samajavaragamana.
Sushanth, Nivetha Pethuraj, Navadeep, and Rahul Ramakrishna are okay in their supporting roles. Sunil and Rajendra Prasad evoke good fun at times. Murali Sharam as a variety father is superb. Tabu, Jayaram as rich family parents are believable.
The film has continuous entertainment and the meeting episode which showcases Bunny imitating all heroes is superb. The songs have been placed superbly and the audience gets entertained thoroughly whenever they appear on the screen.
