Saaho Movie Review – Prabhas And Shraddha Kapoor

Though it seems simple to put in, but director Sujeet, with his screenplay technique, manipulated the film from the perspective of viewers. The director has impressed with the opening scenes and we get to see action mode from very early. The unit, which shows what the scale of the film is like in the first shot, is designed to be every scene the best. However, in the first half of the story, there is nothing to be said about the introduction of the main characters and the talk that the grand visuals much. Interval Twist is also in the style of regular movies. Shraddha Kapoor Character also sounds like it is not expected. However, Prabhas has covered all these shortcomings with his stylish screen presence.



Prabhas being one-man show other artistes don’t get much scope to show their mettle. Only one chunky Pandey ables to prove his mark. Other actors did good job in their limited role. The songs, and their picturisation, are good, but they make you cringe as an unnecessary element which hampers the narration. Even comedy didn’t work out much. The second half is interesting but the expectations of the film couldn’t reach up considering the hype the film got.  In particular, graphics are a major drawback to the cinema. Overall, Saho’s visual grandeur, coupled with action episodes, are spellbouding, but the story is weak.


Only for die-hard fans!
