Maas Maharaj Ravi Teja's much awaited Bengal Tiger released in theaters on Friday. Being helmed by mass director Sampath Nandi, audience have high expectations on the film. Ravi Teja's last film Kick-2 failed at the box office and he badly needs a hit to revive his image. Lets see íf Bengal Tiger roars at the box office or not.
Akash Narayan (Ravi Teja) is a happy go-lucky young man, who enjoys with his friends. Though Akash has done masters in computers, he is yet jobless and roams with friends. He and his family is humiliated by a girl when she tells him on his face that she cannot marry a road side romeo. post this, Akash decides to became famous. Akash slowly manages to be in the good books of the home minister (Rao Ramesh). The HM's daughter Shraddha (Raashi Khanna) falls in love after seeing his guts. Here comes a big twist.
Akash gives a big shock to HM and even Chief Minister too. What is the twist? What is Tamannaah's role? Did Akash do it just to become famous or any strong reason behind it?.
To find out the reasons, watch the movie on big screen.
There is no doubt that Ravi Teja has proved himself as a terrific man for the masses. Ravi Teja carries the entire film on his shoulder and he once again gives a mindblowing performance. He has shed too much weight but he is his usual energetic self.
As expected after seeing in posters, Tamannah's glamour quotient has been on a high. But she has not got much scope showcase her acting skills. Raashi Khanna has performed very well in the film and she ups her glamour quotient. Both the heroines do lend the much required visual feast in songs for the youth. Though there were many comedians in the film, comedy by Prudvi and Posani bring out full laughs. Bhramhanandam fails to evoke much laughs this time. Prudvi's act of imitating Pawan Kalyan in Attarintiki Daredi is impressive.
Scenes in second half
As the title sounds powerful, the film will entertain the mass audience with a powerful mass script. The film may not appeal to the class audience. Director Sampath Nandi, who knows the pulse of people, has come out with a full treat to mass audience. The way he has handled the script and highlighting Ravi Teja in all the action episodes seems to be only for the mass audience.
Ravi Teja's energetic performance, Prutvi's comedy, Tamannaah's glamour have surely puts the film under one-time watchable category. But lack of entertainment and dragged narration in the second half lets down the film to some extent.
First half is comparably better than the second half and interval bang is best part of the movie. Comedy in the first half is hilarious and the twist in the interval scene takes the film to a new level. But some scenes in the second half stretch the film unnecessarily.
The film may fit into the commercial hit film category and it would have become a blockbuster if the director has taken care of the second half.
Verdict: Ravi Teja's complete mass masala flick and feast for his fans.
