After that day, she was found dead near the beach and police starts the investigation. Some incidents that happens lead Anand to fall into mess that involves Chaitra’s murder. What happened actually? How will Anand bring the actual truth and come out of this mess? What is the role of Durga Prasad (Ajay Ghose) in the entire story? To get these answers one should watch the movie on silver screen.
Performance: Rahul is fantastic in his role. He pulls off the role with ease and his performance deserves applause. The actor is surely going to get more opportunities in the coming days. Mahima Makwana also performs well. She does not look like a debutant. Kasi Viswanath justifies with his role as actress’s father. Ajay as a cop is also brilliant. The others performed accordingly.
Technical: The story-line of Venkatapuram is good and screenplay is engaging. This credit goes to director Venu Madikanti as he narrates the story in a very entertaining manner. The director executes all the emotions and suspense well. The movie is at his best in technical departments. The Cinematography work is superb and visuals are good to watch. The music is an additional asset. The background score by Achu Rajamani is elevating scenes at the right points. The production value is good.
Analysis: Overall Venkatapuram is an entertaining Crime thriller movie. The movie has everything in right proportion. Good performance, engaging plot-line, impressive music and good storyline altogether made Venkatapuram a watchable movie. The director tries to hold the suspense in the first half and takes the film forward without revealing anything. Till the interval bang, everything looks good but the interval bag is something that raises the curiosity to watch the second half. The second half begins with an interesting manner, unveils the suspense and drive the film towards a very good ending.
