Aadau Movie Review: Shankar (Mahesh Babu) is an orphan groomed by Raja Rao (Rajendra Prasad). But Raja Rao mistakes Shankar on one occasion and drives him out of the house. Shankar later becomes Encounter Specialist and gets posted in Bukkapatnam where the atrocities of Damodar (Sonu Sood) are skyrocketing. Damodar wants to build a power project there and goes on elimination spree on those opposing it. Later, he comes to know about a shocking truth that turns professional rivalry into personal too.
What happens next is the rest of the story. As a cop, Mahesh Babu has done a fantastic job and he is the showman in Aagadu. He is a treat to watch in action and dance sequences and he will rock you amazing dialogue diction. Tamanna has done also done well and she impresses you with her glamour. Her chemistry with Prince is good to watch on screens. A host of comedians like Rajendra Prasad, Brahmanandam, Nassar, Rao Ramesh, MS Narayana, Vennela Kishore, Raghu Babu, and Posani Krishna Murali keep tickling your funny bones throughout the movie Aagadu. Sonu Sood, Brahmaji, Nadhiya, Tanikella Bharani and have also done justice to their respective roles.
Aagadu Movie Review
This is the first film for Sreenu Vaitla after he left out his mates Kona Venkat and Gopi Mohan, he himself penned the dialogues for this film, that might be the reason for the film to be based on punch dialogues rather than story, the story was good enough for a commercial film but director focused on heroes characterization rather than on the plot, the film has too many dialogues especially in the first half an hour, none of them were clear nor worked out big time, leaving apart that, there was no good hero elevation scene in the film, in the first half villain rarely meets hero, they do meet before the interval and those scenes worked out well, in the second half he tried to manage with his mark confusing comedy plot, last two times it worked but this time it disappointed.
Vaitla had all resources and fully charged Mahesh to score a big hit at the box office but he couldn’t utilize this opportunity. Few scenes worked out well, but since its Dhookudu’s combo expectations are high and director failed to meet them. He managed to get his best from the technicians, songs picturization was good. One thing in which Vaitla succeeded was in elevating Mahesh completely, he presented Mahesh in a completely new attitude and made him dance for songs too.
Overall, Aagadu has rich performances by lead actors and superb production values, but the movie lacks a fresh and interesting storyline.
