Behind the screens:
Mega Power Star Ram Charan who having back to back failures in his kitty now he is coming to entertain with Dhruva remake of Tamil hit Thani Oruvan to test his luck at box office. Let us see what impact he made??
Young IPS trainee Dhruva (Ram Charan) selects his target to arrest after intense research before he takes charge as ACP. He is helped by his friends Jana (Navadeep) and others in his battle to cleanse the society from the influential criminals.While he is on this mission, he finds out that most of frauds happening in medical and pharma field are because of a scientist-businessman named Siddharth Abhimanyu (Aravind Swamy). But Siddharth Abimanyu is not typical evil man; he is suave, intelligent and influential. After Dhruva takes charge as ACP, he takes up the challenge to expose and arrest Siddharth Abhimanyu. But the intelligent scientist checkmates every step that Dhruva takes. Rest of the movie you can see on screen.
Ram Charan seems to have put in lot of hard work. It has paid off well. He attracted with different looks,body language and mannerisms. His dialogue delivery is good. He enacted stunts and dances quite well. Rakul Preet Singh is glamour. She didn’t get much scope to perform. who reprised his negative role in the original showed his Aravind Swamy steals the show in an author backed role of a highly-intelligent evil person. He showed his power as a white collar smooth and smiling criminal. He is so perfect. Others like Posani, Navadeep, Nassar and others played their roles accordingly.
Director Surender Reddy’s direction is good enough to direct action drama. His screen play is gripping. But run-time of the movie is long. He has shown his mark by showing ‘Golconda’ sequence, the Moharram episode and the ‘Asta Digbandanam’ side.
Dhruva Review Rating
Hiphop Tamizha’s music is so attractive. Songs are shot in a stylish manner in various beautiful locations.Two songs “Chusa Chusa Chusa…” and “Pareshanu Raa” are too good. Background score elevated few scenes. PS.Vinod’s cinematography captured the beautiful locations. Naveen Nooli’s editing is just okay but could have better in second half scenes especially. Vema Reddy’s dialogues are good. Action Sequences are well choreographed. Production values of Geetha Arts are grand.
– Ramcharan and Aravind Swamy
– First half
– Gripping Screenplay
– Post interval
– Few scenes
#Dhruva film is an engaging and intelligent action drama. Director Surender Reddy has packaged it stylishly.
The film’s starts on a interesting note and pace picks up with intense action scenes and mind games between Ram Charan and Aravind Swamy. Interval bang is good. Second half starts with slow note and picks up exponentially.
Recommended to watch this movie if you haven’t seen original for sure.
Note: I haven’t seen original version of Dhruva i.e Thani Oruvan
Bottom Line: Dhruva Vs Siddharth Abhimanyu
Tollywood Studio Rating: 3/5
