The latest outing of Naga chaitanya’s Yuddham sharanam, opened in theatres world wide today. A debutant director Krishna marimuthu, directed this film . Lavanya Tripati played the female lead. This film marks the 10th production for Vaarahi creations.
Yuddham sharanam is the tale of a happy go lucky guy, Arjun played by Naga Chaitanya, who leads a happy life with his parents (Rao Ramesh and Revathi), sisters and girlfriend ( Lavanya Tripathi). As things are going well, a trajedy abruptly makes his life worse. In the meantime, A cut-throat criminal Naik (Srikanth), do nefarious activities in the city for his own gains. How the gangster activities effected Arjun? What is the trajedy that hits him? How Arjun would cope with the baddie? are the highlights of the film.
Krishna marimuthu weilded megaphone for the first time for David Nathan written action thriller story. Although it’s his first film, some key scenes are very well executed like an established director, especially the first half which have heart warming bond among family members. Popular writer Abburi Ravi and David Nathan tried to keep the audience intriguing with their non linear screenplay but failed to do it throughout the film. There are few impressive dialogues and go well with the audiences. The story is quite hackneyed. Pelli Choopulu music director Vivek Sagar composed the music for this thriller too. All the songs are mediocre but the back ground score in key scenes is amazing. The best thing about this film, is cinematographer, Nikith bommireddy’s work. His sense of lighting, the way he shot the scenes according to narration, is just brillaint. I felt, 140 minutes length is quite long for this film, should have been trimmed a few minutes.
After a notable hit with Ra randoi veduka choodham, Naga Chaitanya has done this film, His characterisation is somewhat similar to Gautam menon’s Saahasam Swasaga Saagipo but the stages are different. Since the young actor played similar role in SSS, You would have a deja vu. Andhala Rakshasi, Lavanya Tripati has got a meaty role. She did it well. Rao Ramesh and Revathi lived in their characters. It’s been a long time to watch actor Srikanth in a negative role. His intensity in eyes is palpable. This is one of the good performances in his career but dialogues written for him are not upto the mark. Murali sharma and other cast members have done their job very well.
Over-all, Yuddham sharanam has a cliched revenge story blended with intriguing screenplay. It may even perplex some audiences. Heart warming bond among family members in the first half. Antagonist enthralled the viewers in the latter half with his mind game. you could once watch this action thriller to beguile your time.
