· Allari Naresh performance
· Interval sequence
· Climax fight
· Romantic track
· Slow pace narration
Performance : Allari Naresh in the role of police entertained the audience. His transformation for the film is impressive. No one remembers the comedy angle in him when he gets into the role and acts. Mirna acted well as Naresh’s wife. Indraja has played the role of a doctor. The rest of the characters justified with their roles.
Technical: When it comes to the technical aspect, although the story written by director Vijay is good, the way he directed the story is not very effective. The first half of the movie is very slow. Even the love track did not work out much. The track starts after 20 minutes of the movie. The interval sequence is quite good. Solving the mystery, twists and thrilling investigation will give the audience some relief in the second half. Production values are good. BGM is fine. The cinematography is fine. The production design is ok. The editing could have been better especially in second half.
Analysis: Ugram is a mystery thriller drama that has an interesting storyline and good setup but falters in terms of execution for the most part. There were a few good sequences that worked but unnecessary commercial elements ruined the flow.
