He chose to do the remake of the Tamil crime thriller “Thani Oruvan” and collaborated with Surender Reddy who is not so in form with the failure of “Kick 2.” However, Allu Aravind and Ram Charan teaming up again after “Magadheera,” have revived all their hopes on “Dhruva” and fans are expecting Charan to silence his detractors with this effort. Did he? Or Didn’t he? Check out our verdict.
“Dhruva” Telugu movie review
Story: Dhruva (Ram Charan,) is an IPS trainee officer whose ambition is to unearth crimes and if possible to foil them. Along with his friend Gautam (Navdeep) and four others, he operates a network. While they manage to get a hold of the culprits behind all the crimes, they realise all of them are able to get away from the charges. Thus, Dhruva learns there’s a bigger organised crime network behind these day-to-day crimes. He targets 3 top people behind the crime network and decides to pick one among the three as his main target, to break the total network.
However, Dhruva learns that there’s a bigger guy behind all the three crooked people. It’s none other than an influential scientist Siddharth Abhimanyu (Aravind Swamy,) who is also the son of minister Changalrayudu, played by Posani. Knowing his activities, Dhruva foils a major plan of Siddharth to kill Angelina, CEO of a pharmaceuticals company in Switzerland and thus avoid the introduction of generic medicines into India as it spoils the sales of local pharma companies incurring a loss.
What forms rest is a cat-and-mouse game between Dhruva and Siddharth.
Ram Charan stands out as an intense cop. With a beefed up body, six pack abs and muscles, Ram Charan got under the skin of Dhruva very well. He looked leaner, meaner and fitter than how he looked in “Bruce Lee.” Perhaps, this is one of his best looks till date.
Aravind Swamy did his best. As he already proved himself as Siddharth Ahimanyu in the original, he recreated it in the Telugu remake as well. Rakul Preet is good as Ishika. She manages to shine in a brief role. Navdeep, Shayaji Shinde have done their parts well.
Posani did an impressive show as an innocent, dumb minister. He evokes laughter.
*Lack of emotional connect
*Too many twists
*Interruption of unnecessary songs
Final Verdict: Director Surender Reddy tried his best to tell the complex story in both an intelligent manner and at same time in an engaging way. While the first half is okay, post interval, the film suffers. As soon as the interval is over, the film starts with the song ‘Pareshanu Ra,’ which puts you off. Yes, this is unnecessary and interrupts the flow of the narrative. It could have been avoided. But Rakul’s glam show hooks you. Masses would enjoy the song.
Technically, Dhruva is well-made. However, it’s lost in translation. Lack of emotional connect and too many twists and hurried narration are the shortcomings in “Dhruva.” Especially, the second half isn’t interesting as the first half was. Had it been told in a better way, the film would have served its purpose.
Yet, “Dhruva” isn’t a bad film. It’s one time watch. Especially, people who are fans of thrillers and food-for-thought films, “Dhruva” is their cup of tea. Go without much expectations, it’s a time-pass film.
