Vishwak Sen is a current generation youth icon , who excels in unusual genres like gang stories, conman comedies, etc. Earlier, he impressed with his act in Ee Nagaraniki Emaindi, as a happy go lucky young man, who does not care for precision and neatness.
With Falaknuma Das, Vishwak Sen has become a director-actor who can deliver on his own mettle. The remake of Malayalam Hit Angamaly Diaries, Falaknuma Das centres on gang feuds in the Old City area. The movie talks about how Falaknuma Das solved the predicament of his own gang amidst the onslaught of other dons in the Old City area.

Das is an old city boy, who grows up admiring the local don, Shankar dada. He aspires to be like Shankar, who can command a huge gang and get quick money by turning into a gunda, who takes money to kill the don’s enemies. So, he creates a gang for himself from his childhood and Shankar supports this Falaknuma Das gang. Meanwhile, Shankar’s gang allows Das to be a part of their deeds in the Old City.
Falaknuma Das is an Old City boy, who passes his childhood years with Shankar’s gang, grows up and becomes a part of it. While he is busy wooing girls in college, one day Shankar gets killed by a rival gang. How Das avenges the death of his idol becomes the rest of the story.
Falaknuma Das, is not a scene by scene remake of the Malayalam movie, but the characters are suited to fit in the local milieu, for the Telugu viewers. Vishwak Sen speaks in the Old City accent and language perfectly and is particularly in his element in action sequences, rather than in the emotional scenes. The part of heroines, Saloni Mishra as his love interest are lacking in depth.
Director Tharun Bhasker shines in the unique role of Saidulu as a sidekick in the Das team. His natural accent of Telangana comes to the fore in this movie. Vivek Sagar provides good background score for the movie, mostly in the action sequences.
Overall, the gangster drama lacks punch in the second half, making it a one time watch.
