Pawan Kalyan’s landmark 25th film Agnyaathvaasi – Prince in Exile has hit the marquee with massive expectations. Since over Rs 160 Crore is riding on the film, naturally, there is a huge anticipation in both trade as well as his fans amidst his full-fledged political foray.
The reunion of PK-Trivikram Srinivas, whose last two films Attarintiki Daaredi and Jalsa, adds to the buzz. Promising trailer, teaser and soothing music album made Agnyaathavaasi one of the most awaited films of 2018.
Abhishikth Bharghav (Pawan Kalyan) is the elder son of Govinda Bharghav aka Vinda (Boman Irani). He is a prince in exile and Vinda’s plan-B. He was raised far away from the world of wealth. Abhishikth was brought up by his maternal uncle, Appaji (Tanikella Bharani).
Vinda is married to Indrani (Kushboo) and they have son, Mohan Bhargav. What are the odds that come in Vinda’s life? How Abhishikth takes revenge for his father’s murder and how he saves Indrani forms the crux of the story. Will Abhishikth take over the reigns of AB Group? Watch it on screen.
Pawan Kalyan is in his best form. He looked very much at ease in his character. Looks wise, PK is at his best and he looks dapper in suits.
Keerthy Suresh (Sukumari) does a fine job while Anu Emmanuel is stunner. Anu stole the show by revving up the glam quotient. The fun banter between Murali Sharma (Sharma) and Rao Ramesh (Varma) evokes laughter. Raghu Babu as Koteswara Rao does a very good job. The song Kodaka Koteswara Rao is after him. Tanikella Bharani, Srinivas Reddy, Vennela Kishore are some of the important characters. Aadhi Pinisetty (Seetharam) is the main baddie. He aspires to occupy the throne of AB Group since there was no successor to Vinda. Seetharam is the one who kills Vinda and his son, Mohan Bhargav.

How the secret son of a billionaire takes vengeance for his father’s death and takes over his empire is the plot. No doubt, Trivikram-Pawan have chosen a far-engaging plot than their previous films. But the film suffers on the execution front.
Technically, Agnyaathavaasi has best work. Anirudh’s music, Manikandan’s visuals, ensemble cast, the film has it all. But screenplay could have been better. Go for it with less expectations. Watch it for Pawan’s magic on screen. He stands out!
Agnyaathavaasi is Pawan’s one-man show. Pawan packs a punch.
