No matter how many hit remakes we’ve to our credit, fans were suspicious over this Thani Oruvan remake. But of late films like Premam and now Dhruva prove that our directors can deliver worthy remakes if not outshining the originals.
Coming to Dhruva, director Surender Reddy made an undeviating remake with limited improvisation within the set limitation. Firstly an impressive improvisation in the form of the ‘8’ (you see in the title) – a strong motive he uses throughout the film (sorry boss… cannot afford a spoiler). Secondly, the way he smartly achieved an upper hand for the hero despite the presence and performance of Arvind Swamy through the craft is commendable. Besides this, Surrender Reddy also tried to extract some commercial entertainment through the heroine (but largely ended up with a glamorous song like Pareshaanura).
Mohan Raja’s original story and screenplay are indeed bliss for the makers but the best part is that the director was successful at dishing out a decent remake without marring the original.
Besides the performances of Ram Charan & Arvind Swamy, a robust story with an engaging screenplay (bombarding though) with few refreshing twists stand and an equally good climax stand out for the film.
On a whole, you can assume that we want you to check this film out for its refreshing content, enjoyable screenplay and lastly Arvind Swamy.
- Lead cast Performances especially Ram Charan & Arvind Swamy
- Rakul Preet’s glamor
- Story and screenplay
- Background score
- Lack of comedy and routine commercial ingredients might disappoint the masses.
Songs by Hiphop Thamizha sound German for Telugu film music lovers yet are certainly groovy. Pareshaanuraa was shot well and Neethone Dance Tonight was noisy (or otherwise dabbalo gulakarallu). But you may get to enjoy Young Megastar’s dance moves in this song.
