Review : Aswathama

Young hero Naga Shaurya’s Aswathama has been carrying decent buzz among the trade circles. After a wide round of promotions, the film has hit the screens today. Let’s analyze it.

Story:

Gana (Naga Shaurya), a normal middle-class guy comes across a series of strange events in Vizag city. He notices a few girls missing. In order to trace out the mystery, Gana starts investigation and traces out the main culprit behind the missing story. Who is the person behind all this serious issue? Why is he doing this? How will Shaurya stop keep a check to him? Forms the rest of the story.

Analysis:

For the first time, Naga Shaurya tried an out as out mass entertainer in which he shines with his fights and intense acting. A few emotional family scenes are executed nicely.

The cat and mouse game between the protagonist and the antagonist in the second half is being showcased in a decent manner.

Except for a few scenes and songs, heroine Mehreen has nothing to do in the film that addresses a serious issue. The film has a fresh concept for which the credits should be given to Shaurya as he is the story writer for the film.

The guy, who acted as the main antagonist is good in his given sadist role.

Plus:

Concept
A few confrontation scenes

Minus:

Slow-paced narration
Editing and screenplay
Serious proceedings
Music

Verdict:

All in all, Aswathama is a serious crime drama that impresses in parts. Though Naga Shaurya makeover and basic concept are good, flat narration in the first half and non-commercial formate in the latter half makes it a below-average watch during this weekend.

Rating: 2.5/5
