Thanks to the grand outdoor publicity and spate of TVCs, “Aakatayi,” featuring newcomers Ashish Raj and Rukshar Mir, has been making good noise for the past few days. The name too sounds catchy, “Aakatayi.”
Vikranth (Ashish Raj,) is a studious engineering student who falls for Anagha (Rukshar Mir.) Vikranth gets a shocker of his life when he gets to know some news about his parents through Anagha. Vikranth steps into know the truth about his parents. Then there is the World’s most wanted criminal Jehangir (Pradeep Rawat,) who comes into Vikranth’s life and makes it difficult for him by spoiling his things. What was the shocking secret about Vikranth’s parents? Why did Jehangir come into Vikranth’s life? How Vikranth solves all these forms crux of the story.
Despite being a debutant, Ashish did a decent performance. Actress Rukshar Mir revs up the glam quotient. The romantic scenes involving Ashish and Mir turned out good. The presence of Suman, Ramky and Ajay Ghosh made the film interesting.
“A akatayi” is an ordinary revenge drama. Like all the revenge films that we have witnessed in Telugu before, “A akatayi” too is no different. But kudos to director Rom Bhimana who directed the film well. Looks like, he’d make it big as a commercial director provided he improves his skill. The first half is dealt well. The romantic episodes between the lead pair make the film interesting. Especially the scene where Vikranth proposes to Anagha is well-written and well made. This stands out in the film.
However, narrative in the second half dampens the flow. Too many sub-plots and a few lengthy scenes disappoint. The film picks up towards the climax and ends on a bright note. It’s a formula commercial film. Good for mass audiences as well as for dates.
Interesting First Half
Hero-Heroine Romantic Episodes
Solid Interval Bang
Few Lengthy Scenes in Second Half
Too Many Sub-plots
Final Verdict: “A akatayi” is time-pass film.
