In order to escape from all these tricky situations, Railway Raju unexpectedly commits a huge crime which lands him in jail. There, he decides upon himself to take revenge on Ibrahim Khan at any cost. Rest of the story is as to how Railway Raju encounters the mighty Ibrahim Khan.
Sree Vishnu and Nara Rohith have given solid performances in the film. Irrespective of the run times, both the actors have got good roles that they can be proud of. While Vishnu impresses as an honest guy who later gets on to the wrong track, Nara Rohith entertains the audiences with his aggressiveness. Tanya Hope as the female lead is just okay. Manasa Hima Varsha has got a proper role to play in the film. Brahmaji, Prabhas Srinu, Srinivas Reddy and the other actors impress us with their roles. Rajeev Kanakala also plays a useful and exciting role.
Performances by Rohith and Vishnu
Few ups and downs in first half
The visuals are quite brilliant and the way the happenings during the 90’s and the naxal set up is added in the story is quite impressive. Music by Sai Karthik is below average. But the background score is excellent. The screenplay of the film is very impressive and gets engaging as the climax is ended with a good twist.
Coming to the director Sagar Chandra, he has done a good job with the film. He chooses quite an interesting story and nicely sets it up between two characters and does not unnecessarily elevate anyone for commercial reasons and sticks to the story. He falters slightly during the second half but he makes it up with an emotional climax which forms the life of the film.
Appatlao Okadundevadu is a film which has some very engaging and emotional moments. Credit should go to Nara Rohit for backing a script like this and even agreeing to do a supporting role which sticks to the story. The surprise package of the film is Sree Vishnu who gives an aspiring performance. This is not a regular popcorn entertainer and will only impress its target audience. All those who like realistic films with some hard hitting drama can happily give this film a shot this weekend.
