Star heroine Keerthy Suresh is in dire need of a hit. All of her last few films have become failures. To strike success at any cost, Keerthy has now come up with Good Luck Sakhi. This movie has hit the screens today. Check out our review here

Sakhi (Keerthy Suresh) is a village belle who is branded as a 'bad luck' personality by the villagers. An ex-colonel (Jagapathi Babu) tries to find out the talented sportspersons in his village and aims to send them to the national level championships. How Sakhi has ended up as a trainee under the colonel? What is her relationship with Goli Raju (Aadi Pinishetty)? What is the importance of Soori (Rahul Ramakrishna) in this story? To know the answers, you have to watch the film.

There is not much weightage in the character for Keerthy to pull off. All she had to do is to score brownie points with her chirpy, quirky and bubbly attitude. She did it with ease. Jagapathi Babu is good as the coach. It is heartening to see him in such positive characters, after watching him numerous times as a villain. Aadi Pinishetty is natural in his character. Rahul Ramakrishna was decent. There is not much to talk about the other cast members.

Technical Aspects:
Director Nagesh Kukunoor made these kinds of sports dramas in the past and they did well too. But Good Luck Sakhi doesn't have the soul like his earlier films. The bland screenplay and narrative make this film quite boring.

Music by Devi Sri Prasad is usual. There is nothing great in songs but the background score was decent. The cinematography by Chirantan Das was usual and nothing extraordinary. The production values were good though.

A sports drama always needs to have a strong core conflict about the sport. Good Luck Sakhi lacks it. We just see her doing things but we never root for her. Lack of connection with the protagonist and the sport happens right from the initial scenes. Moreover, the subplots with Aadi Pinishetty and Rahul Ramakrishna also didn't work as expected.

This film happens to be the debut of Nagesh Kukunoor in Telugu. He is known for making relatable dramas in Bollywood. But his writing is very bland in this film's case and his magic is completely missed. Even after having a short runtime, the film feels lengthy and stretched.

Plus Points:
Shorter Runtime
The setup of the story

Minus Points:
Bland Screenplay
No Strong Conflict
Improper Characterizations

Verdict: Boring Sakhi!
