Success has been exclusive for Rajasekhar for quite sometime. Despite doing some good roles with decent performance, he couldn’t crack the success for various reasons. Finally, he collaborated with national-award winning filmmaker Praveen Sattaru for a spy-action thriller PSV Garuda Vega. The film did live up to all the expectations. Check our detailed review on what worked and what didn’t.
Sekhar (Rajasekhar) is an NIA officer. Swathi (Pooja Kumar) is his wife. Sekhar busts an arms gang and thus shows his competence. He now moves onto an investigation on narcotics. After some turns, he is put on a mission to unearth illegal mining scam.
While investigating, Sekhar realises that his personal life is involved with his professional challenge. What is it? How does Sekhar overcome it?
Rajasekhar is apt for the role. After a long hiatus, he is seen in a powerful role once again. Pooja Kumar is good. Shraddha Das has essayed the role of a reporter which is not so significant. Yet Shraddha did her part well. Ali, Kishore, Pruthvi are at their best.

Racy First Half
Praveen Sattaru did make his own mark with films such as Routine Love Story, Chandamama Kathalu & Guntur Talkies. Although the latter (Guntur Talkies) was criticized for its voyeuristic content, it did struck a chord with youth to an extent.
Coming to PSV Garuda Vega, Sattaru tries to make a fine balance between Hollywood-style making for a desi story. The first half is slick, racy. Pre-interval episode at Charminar is well-shot. Even the bike-chase scene is stylishly picturised. The film has its moments. Praveen Sattaru did show his mark.
However, second-half slightly puts off as the flash-back is not as expected. Climax is shot well on large canvas amidst an array of ships. And finally, the end justifies the means. Garuda Vega is a good watch.
Rajasekhar makes a comeback with a bang! PSV Garuda Vega is worth watching.
