Arjun Suravaram is one of the exciting projects in recent times. Hero Nikhil has been waiting for the release of this movie for a long time and finally, the movie hits the screens today. The film stars Lavanya Tripathi as the heroine. Arjun Suravaram is the official remake of Kanithan movie that released in Tamil and became a hit. The film is directed by TN Santosh in Telugu as well. Read on to know our review of the movie here.
Arjun Lenin Suravaram (Nikhil Siddarth) is an investigative journalist who gets is arrested by the police for having used fake certificates while applying for the job. Arjun does not realize it in the beginning but then comes to know that his career is at stake. He takes up a mission to burst this fake education certificates racket and uses all his skills to avenge the revenge. How did he achieve it? What problems did he face? What happens in the end? Forms the story of the movie.
Nikhil went under the skin of the character and has delivered his best performance in this movie. The actor has blended well with the character and justifies the role completely. Lavanya Tripathi looked absolutely gorgeous in the film. The actress will not only impress the audience with her looks but also will grab the attention with her stunning performance in the movie. Vennela Kishore and Posani Krishna Murali will definitely bring some good laughs in the theatre. As usual, Nagineedu has delivered an energetic performance in the movie. Satya and Kishore also delivered decent performances in the film. Tarun Arora justified his role.
Though the movie is a remake, director T Santosh has succeeded in presenting the film in a refreshing way. Though his narration is really good, his pace of narration is extremely slow and execution might not be able to engage all sections of the audience. Production values by Rajkumar Akella under Movies Dynamix LLP are very high. We can see the producers have invested decent amounts without compromising in terms of quality. Music by Sam CS is outstanding. Keeping the songs aside, the background score is energetic and interesting. Suryaa's visuals and cinematography added more strength for the movie. Editing by Navin Nooli could have been better.
Having an interesting plotline has become a major plus for this movie. The film starts off on an interesting note. The first 30minutes itself will grab the attention of the audience. The movie has a slow-paced narration which is the biggest minus point. Despite being a remake version, the film has a different screenplay which failed to work. The second half is handled well. All the sections of the audience might not connect really well with the film. Performances, BGM and especially Nikhil are the highlights of the film, but the weak screenplay and execution of the story will be the minus points of the film. On the whole, 'Arjun Suravaram' is a one-time watch film.
