Bellamkonda Sreenivas and Pooja Hegde starrer Saakshyam have a huge hype around, which it gained after the release of the impressive trailer. Touted to be a conceptual movie, the movie has hit the screens today. Here is the full review of Saakshyam.
A man, whose family is destroyed in the childhood itself, his life and the only Saakshyam- which means the evidence behind the death of his family are the outlines of the story.
Four nefarious brothers who are the cause behind his family's death. Hero grows older, to take revenge on the brothers. The makers have added a concept of the 'nature' which is interwoven in the script. The air, the water, the fire, sky, and the land are considered as the 'Panchabhootas' which help the hero take his revenge, though the brothers erase away all the pieces of evidence.
Roles and Performances:
Bellamkonda Sreenivas has tried very hard to prove himself. His body is perfectly built up and looks apt for the role. There is an improvement in action sequences but dance must improve.
Pooja Hegde's role is one of the weakest roles. The characterization of Pooja Hegde's role would have been better.
Jagapathi Babu's role as a nefarious villain is clearly established. He is seen reciting poet Vemana's poems, which is a distinctive portrayal of villainism. All the other actors were good in their respective roles.
Except for the concept of nature and panchabhootas, there isn't anything new that the movie offers. A family being looted for the property, a single child is left behind, him growing up to take the revenge. Isn't it an age-old story?
The movie starts off on a high note. But, as the movie proceeds, there is nothing to be excited. The interval block and the fight including high-octane action sequences are just superb.
Though there are a few impactful scenes here and there, the second half doesn't please much. The director has written the script carefully. The logic in the movie has worked out well. Lack of proper comedy is a huge drawback.
Top-notch production values, with an ultimate capture of the lens. The camera work is to be appreciated. Also, the CGI, graphics department is to be lauded. The concept worked out well. Dialogues by Sai Madhav Burra worked out well.
+ Production Values
- Lack of comedy
- Routine storyline.
Final Verdict: A routine commercial movie bombarded with 'Panchabhoota's concept. Once watchable. Production values are top-notch.
