Officer Plus Points:
Officer Minus Points:
- Production values
Performance: Officer a completely different film for Akkineni Nagarajun. Nag as an IPS Officer Shivaji Rao delivers his best performance. He looks realistic in simple attire and acts naturally without going overboard. Myra Sareen is very good as lady officer. Baby Kaavya who essays Nagarjuna’s daughter looks very cute. Rest of the cast performed accordingly.
Technical: The basic story of Officer is like an investigative thriller. A film of this type works only when supported by a taut screenplay but here RGV disappointed the audiences. The dialogues in the film are meaningless. The narration style is weird. Editing is fine. Production quality of the film is poor. Cinematography work is good. Background music by Ravi Shankar is good. Art direction is ok.
Analysis: Ram Gopal Varma and Nagarjuna joined hands after 28 years for this cop based drama Officer. First half of the film sets up the plot and is alright. But the second half tests the patience of the audiences. On a whole, Officer is a nice selection from Nagarjuna in terms of story and intent, but RGV has given something which audiences were not expecting! There are extra dose of action and violence in the film.
