The Warriorr Movie review : Warrior slows down in the war

Ram Pothineni is all set to show his mass swag once again in ‘The Warriorr’ after the super success of ‘iSmart Shankar’. The ustaad man usually has a very huge mass following for him. Now, he joined hands with the best action director of Kollywood, Lingusamy, and made the film ‘The Warriorr,’ packed with heavy action drama and mass elements. The film created huge buzz in film circles from the day of its announcement. The film hit the theatres and let’s check out how it fares at box-office.


Satya MBBS (Ram Pothineni) is a very determined and dedicated doctor by profession. He gets transferred to the city of Kurnool, where Guru (Aadhi) is a very fierce and violent gangster. Satya goes against Guru in every step and fails. Later, he turns into a cop to face Guru. How was Satya MBBS turned into Satya IPS? How did he take on Guru? All these elements get unfolded as the story progresses.


First one hour of the movie is fast-paced despite being a regular story. The director Linguswamy shows his strength dealing with mass elements mainly highlighting the villainy. Mass scenes offer some freshness from shot making perspective, but the honeymoon period is short lived. When the doctor becomes IPS, the movie goes redundant loops instead of racing up. Writing team had good opportunity to elevate the movie further as the foundation in first half was setup for the Satya Vs Guru war in second half. However, the film turns predictable and unappealing confrontation scenes spoil second half Ram as a doctor looked innocent, and equally good as IPS officer.

‘The Warriorr’ is a high-voltage action film with the ultimate face-off between Ram and Aadhi. The film is completely about Satya and Guru going against each other with their extreme energies. The power-packed performances from the duo added a great strength to Lingusamy’s vision, and the output entertained.

‘The Warriorr’ is a great choice for mass action film lovers this weekend. The people who enjoys film a complete commercial genre film can make a try.


Ram Pothineni excelled on screen in both the shades of Satya MBBS and Satya IPS. His two different looks and body language for two different shades are very exciting to watch. Ram as a cop in the film is very intense. His dialogue delivery with an intense voice is an add-on for the film. The Warriorr will surely stand as the career’s best action performance from Ram.

Aadhi Pinisetty as Guru plays one of the best villains in Telugu cinema in recent times. There is a lot of intensity in his eyes and expressions during the scenes of the face-off with Ram. Krithi Shetty is perfectly suited to the role of RJ Whistle Mahalakshmi. She brings energy to the character and the film. Brahmaji is quite good in his role as a subordinate to Ram.


Director Lingusamy is back in action form. Though he chose a regular story, it was all his screenplay and direction that played out. The racy mass action scenes and the paced screenplay are the greatest advantages for the film from the director’s side. Also, the characterisations of both Satya and Guru came out very well. Though the major twist was known to us from the trailer of the film, the way Lingusamy handled it with his screenplay and direction matters the most. The second half of the film is completely about Satya and Guru’s face off.

Devi Sri Prasad proves once again with ‘The Warriorr’ film that he is the best in the business when it comes to delivering a mass album and background score. The two songs in the second half, Bullet Song and Whistle Song, stand as the highlights of the entire music album. Also, DSP gave some powerful tracks for the face-off between Ram and Aadhi in some scenes. The action scenes by Anbariv are a treat to watch. They’re all on high voltage, especially during the climax fight.
