Dasara Movie Review
Dasara is one film that has been promoted a lot in the last month or so. Starring Nani and Keerthy Suresh, this film is out, read our review to find out if the film has any juice in it or not.
The village of Veerlapally is filled with drunkards who are obsessed with liquor. Their lives revolve around the silk bar and so much politics happen at this place. Dharani(Nani) and Suri(Deekshit Shetty) are friends who get into this scuffle and face dire circumstances from the village head Nambi(Shine Tom Chacko). He kills one of them and hell breaks loose. Who gets killed and what happened to the silk bar is the rest of the story of this village drama.
Nani is time and again making sure that he leaves everyone silent with his performances. With Shyam Singh Roy he made sure that he can do powerful roles and now with Dasara, he has made sure that he can carry out mass roles with ease as well. Nani is just amazing with his performances and drives the film throughout. Keerthy Suresh is no less than Nani and gets a major role. She is superb in the film and gets to showcase her solid acting prowess. Deekshit Shetty is a good actor and gets a lot of screen space in the film. Shine Tom Chacko is not that great as his role is not handled properly. A Telugu native villain would have made matters better. Sai Kumar and Samutrakani are wasted.
Dull Second half
lack of drama
Dasara has been hyped a lot and Nani has said in many of his interviews that there will be a mass hysteria that will be created in all the theaters. But that is not the case as the film does not have those standout moments or wow factor. From the first scene, the hype is built up so much that one expects only fireworks and nothing else. But that does not happen as the film has many loose ends.
Srikanth Odela has created so many characters properly and his world of Dasara is so good. But more clarity in the emotions would have made a world of good. The first half has decent action and the breakpoint is shocking. But in between, there are no scenes that create interest. The action and visuals draw your attention most of the time.
The second half of the film drags for no reason. The director Srikanth Odela runs out of ideas as the hero-villain confrontation is not elevated at all. The hero waits until the end to kill the villain which looks silly a bit. In a way, there is no story or twists that keep you hooked. The film is slow and predictable in many areas. But the packaging is so good that one forgets the errors.
The camera work is smashing and the production design is award-winning. The music is superb but the BGM was disappointing. The artwork is so good and there is not one scene where the film looks fake. Nani’s transformation is so good that he draws you into his performance with his eyes. The performances are the biggest plus of Dasara which otherwise has a routine premise.
In a way, Dasara is hyped a bit too much. One needs to lower their expectations big time to watch the film as there is nothing out of the box that is being showcased here. Just go in with an open mind and then you will surely get immersed into the world of Dasara.
Dasara Movie Rating: 2.75/5
