There is no second thought to the fact Stylish Star Allu Arjun has a humongous fanbase across India, including various states up North. With Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo, he seems to be all set to conquer even further. This Trivikram-directorial is sure to regale his fans and presents a family drama of sorts. And let’s see what this two-time successful combo of the actor-director has to offer this time.
Cast: Allu Arjun, Pooja Hegde, Tabu, Jayaram, Murali Sharma, Samuthirakani
Direction: Trivikram Srinivas
Music: S. Thaman
Valmiki (Murali Sharma) is a middle-class employee, who finds himself in a weird situation where he is compelled to swap his new born baby with his rich employer, Ramachandra’s (Jayaram) new born baby. He brings up the adopted boy, Bantu (Allu Arjun) as a middle class lad and does not want any contact with Ramachandra and his family, most importantly their palatial residence, Vaikunthapuram. Bantu aims big in life always and resists his father’s admonitions. Ramachandra’s adopted son Raj Mohan (Sushanth) is unassertive and a spoilt brat. Due to situations, Bantu and Raj Mohan come closer and Bantu gets to know about his past. How does he reconcile with his adopted father and how does he gain the ownership of Vaikunthapuram? This forms the crux of Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo.
This Allu Arjun-starrer is a stylishly crafted flick with the actor taking the centre stage. As a son, who is distraught between his middle class upbringing and his bigger dreams, Arjun plays the role perfectly. His scenes with Tabu and Murali Sharma are impressive and leave a long-lasting impression. His dancing skills come up in the songs OMG Daddy, Samajavaragamana and Ramuloo Ramula and fans surely would have a ball watching him kill it on screen.
Murali Sharma has become one of the most sought after actors in Tollywood, lately, and his filmography clearly suggests that. He carries his role of an egoistic father well, and he is ably supported by the veteran Rohini, who plays Arjun’s mother. Making a comeback after a hiatus, Tabu delivers a good performance and a viewer will surely take notice of her acting prowess. Malayalam actor Jayaram too has a decent role and the Bhagamathie actor delivers a good performance. Pooja Hegde, Nivetha Pethuraj and Sushanth form major supporting cast, but the show stealer is Allu Arjun.
We need speak about Thaman’s music for Ala Vaikunthapurammlo as it is already a chartbuster album. But he does need a special shout-out for his thumping BG score. PS Vinod, the cinematographer, ensures that the visuals a treat to the eyes and will leave you with a good feel.
To sum it up, Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo is a treat for Allu Arjun fans and is a safe bet this Sankranti!
