Krack was delayed for the entire day and finally, it came out in the second show of Jan 9th. Directed by Gopichand Malineni, read our review to find out how the film is.
Veera Shankar(Ravi Teja) is a cranky cop who does not listen to anyone. Wherever he goes due to his transfers, Shankar is a big pain for the goons there. But one such goon called Katari(Samutrakani) is a tough nut to crack because of his power in Ongole. How does Shankar manage to pin him down is the whole story of the film.
Krack brings back the old Ravi Teja once again to the screens. The star hero is in full form as his performance carries the whole film to another level. It is only because of Ravi Teja’s mass avatar with solid fights and dialogues that makes the difference in the film. Shruthi Haasan is there only for the songs but she has done so well and is looking so beautiful. But if the credit should go to one man, it will be the villain Samutrakani. He was awesome and gave solid competition to Ravi Teja. His slang and scenes with Varalakshmi Sarathkumar are too good. The rest of the supporting cast is well managed and gives a good boost to the film.
You have seen so many cop dramas in the past but Krack is a bit different as it has three big villains and has issues with the hero. This part is nicely established in the film right from the begining. Director Gopichand Malineni has done well to script his fights and heroism shots to a new level. Though Krack has a bit more action, it will be loved by the masses.
The songs are never a disturbance and are shot so well. But the drawback in the film is the length. So much time is wasted on Shruthi Haasan and her family track which is boring because of the son’s silly questions to his parents. There is no novelty in the story and is a simple good versus bad. But marks should go to the director for unveiling all the commercials at regular intervals. The story has dull spots in most areas but that is nicely covered by the stunning visuals.
The villain angle in the first half has no impact on the story much. This is where the story takes a beating and bores the class audience to an extent. Thaman is the unsung hero with his mass beats and BGM’s. The film is made for the regular audience and in a nutshell, the single screen viewers and will love the film and the festival season will only help.
