Vakeel Saab Movie Review
Pawan Kalyan’s Vakeel Saab is one of the most awaited films in the recent past. Amidst Corona scare, it has released today, and read on to know if the film has what it has promised.
The story is about three independent women played by Anjali, Nivetha Thomas, and Ananya. They attend a party and some boys misbehave with them. Incidentally, Nivetha badly injures one of the boys and this turns into a big issue. The injured boy is the son of an MP and he plants a case against the girls. In comes Vakeel Saab(Pawan Kalyan) to their rescue and fights the case for them. How did he do all of that forms the story of Vakeel Saab?
Vakeesl Saab is the remake of Pink and we all know that. The film has been altered here and there and seeing Pawan’s image, a love angle has been added. The film starts off quite well by establishing the girls and their lives with the beautiful Maguva song. Then, the actual plot is brought in and this looks very good to see.
The film does not have much of a story other than the court case. So, the director takes us into the flashback of Pawan Kalyan, and in comes Shruthi Haasan. Though this part looks good it derails the film from the original plot. What keeps you alive is the screen presence of Pawan Kalyan during this time.
Speaking of the star hero, Pawan has killed it with his serious and emotional performance in the court scenes. Anjali and Nivetha also do their job so perfectly and all this is brought in well. Thaman needs a special mention as he lights up the proceedings with his solid BGM.
But the actual drama begins in the second half with the court case. This is where the drama picks and Pawan goes full throttle here with his performance. The emotions, confrontation scenes between Pawan and Prakash Raj are a treat to watch and end the film with a full-on satisfactory note.
Plus Points :
- Pawan’s performance
- Social message
- Second half
- Thaman’s BGM
Minus Points :
- Flashback Episode
- Slow first half
Final Word :
Vakeel Saab’s subject is already proven in Hindi but when it comes to Telugu, Pawan Kalyan takes it a notch high with his solo stand-out performance. The film has emotion, drama, and message and is narrated in a good way. The flashback is dull but once that is over, Pawan Kalyan takes charge and impresses his fans and general audience which is ably supported by Venu Sriram’s sensible narration and intense drama.
Rating : 3.25/5
