Gopichand is ready with his new film Pakka Commercial. The film is directed by Maruthi and has been released today with not much competition. Read on to see if the film has any juice in it or not.
Lucky(Gopichand) is a street-smart lawyer whose only aim is to make money from his clients. In this process, he becomes a personal lawyer of a local goon(Rao Ramesh) and starts making money. This does not go well with Lucky’s father(Satyaraj) who has a bitter past with the politician. This erupts a tug of war between the father and son. Who wins the tussle is the basic theme of the film.
Satyaraj is becoming routine in his roles these days. He plays a retired judge and gets sidelined even though he has a key character. Only a few scenes of his work in the film. Raashi Khanna has this lovely comedy timing which has been nicely elevated by Maruthi. She has the serial artists bring the house down on fire in the first half.
Gopichand looks macho and was nice as the commercial lawyer. He is routine with his action and does not show anything new. Rao Ramesh plays the main villain and is the major solace of the film. The manner in which he evokes comedy is also very good. Siya Gautam makes a comeback and is neat.
A few comedy scenes
Silly scenes and logical errors
Dull first half
Maruthi is known for his comedies and has teamed up with Gopichand for an action drama. He makes him do comedy and showcases him effectively. But he did not have any story in the first half and that is the reason, he adds comedy which only clicks in parts.
The story starts only during the half point and by this time, the audience gets only some fun scenes. But the actual magic in the film starts when Rao Ramesh is in full throttle. There is a dialogue mouthed by him where he says that the audience will only remember his acting by the end of this film. Likewise, he saves the film for the most part in the second half.
The music is pretty good but a song in the second half comes in as a speed breaker. The courtroom scenes are made a big joke as there is no seriousness in them at all. If Maruthi would have made some sense with his narration, the drama would have been effective.
In the end, Pakka Commercial, as the title suggests has a few factors just to attract the audience. When it comes to comedy, the film is okay but the rest of the drama is outdated and has no strength in it for the audience to get engaged.
Bottom Line – Pakka Routine
