Acharya Movie Review: Written and directed by Koratala Siva, the film Acharya has Chiranjeevi, Ram Charan and Pooja Hegde in the lead roles. The big budget social drama Acharya has hit the theaters today. Let’s see the story of Acharya.
Story: Acharya is based in the temple town of Dharmasthali. A politically influencing personality Basava(Sonu Sood), does illegal activities and dominates Dharmasthali. Acharya (Chiranjeevi) makes his entry at Dharmasthali and creates fear in Basava. What is his connection of Acharya with Siddha (Ram Charan) ? Who is Siddha? Who will save Dharmasthali? To get these answers, one should watch the movie on silver screen.
- Presence of Chiranjeevi and his dance moves
- Naxalites fight
- Charan and Chiranjeevi combination scenes
- Routine Story
- No Twist
- Lack of Entertainment
- Lack of strong villain
Performance: Megastar Chiranjeevi excels in the role of Acharya at both. He wins the audience’s heart with an honest performance and dancing style at this age. He delivers note noteworthy performance. Chiru’ expressions, way of dialogue delivery, stunning dance moves and action sequences are mind-blowing. Ram Charan gives his best in the Siddha role. Charan, a boy from Gurukul, looks peaceful but later he transforms into a mass avatar, which is amazing. Both Chiranjeevi and Ram Charan look amazing on screen in a single frame. Pooja Hegde looks pretty and performs well. Jisshu Sen Gupta and Sonu Sood are ok. Other supporting artists are fine.
Technical: Once again Koratala Siva made his comeback with a social drama but this time with a weak script and dull presentation. He disappointed the movie lovers with the outdated story and screenplay. The cinematography work is impressive. Thiru captures the forest locales and lush greenery in his own style. Visuals are awesome. Editing is good. The background score by Mani Sharma elevates the emotion of the scenes. The foot tapping songs are impressive. The production value is top notch, the makers did not compromise with the quality of the movie.
Analysis: The first half of Acharya has no interesting moments and the climax looks forced. The one of the major drawbacks of Acharya is the lack of a strong villain. Sonu Sood has become a real hero post-Covid crisis and that is the reason he does not look menacing.
