- Nara Rohith
- Jagapathi Babu
- No engaging elements
Performance : The performances of Nara Rohit and Jagapathi Babu are highlighted. Nara Rohit’s expressions and body language are superb. He keeps entertaining with his energetic performance. Darshana Banik made her Telugu debut with this film. The actress got limited screen space but performed well. Brahmanandam, Subbaraju, Sri Tej, Jeeva, Tulasi justify with their roles. Rest of the cast performed accordingly.
Technical: The script is interesting but has been tried and tested in many films to date and everyone is shocked how Nara Rohit has approved such a routine storyline. There is absolutely no seriousness as most of the scenes look silly. Aatagallu is mind game between the culprit and the investigator but there are no entertainment elements in the movie to engage the audiences. The editing is below par. The music by Sai Karthik is just ok. The cinematography by Vijay C Kumar is impressive. The Cinematographer impressed with his visuals. The production values are ok. The dialogues are good but loud in some scenes.
Analysis: The director Paruchuri Murali tried to impress with a courtroom drama but became fail to execute the movie is engaging way. Lack of entertainment along with the lack of chemistry between the lead pair acted as the draw backs. Only the presence of Nara Rohith and Jagapathi Babu, are the plus point. Aatagallu has nothing new to showcase.
