- Aadi Sai Kumar’ performance
- College scenes
- Slow pace
Performance: As usual, Aadi Sai Kumar is decent and he justifies with his role. His role had a good scope for him to perform and his character in this film has a lot of variations. Surabhi looks good and Raasi Singh also does well in her role. She looks good in all the tense scenes. Comedians Harsha and Vennela Kishore are ok. Rajeev Kanakala, Ajay, and Jayaram and others perform accordingly.
Technical: There is nothing special in the story of Sashi but the director becomes successful to hold interest to some extent. The narration is dragged in the second half. The emotions in the film are forced. The slow pace tests the patience of the audience. The production values of this film are good. The cinematography work and BGM are ok.
Analysis: Overall Sashi is just an average romantic drama.
