Power: Film Review – A movie for mass maharaja’s fans only

Ravi Teja’s films have always come with a promise of heaps of comedy and mass action. His latest release, Power is no different and amply fulfills the promises kept, especially in the first-half. The only trouble is that the screenwriter-cum-debutante-director (who was also the screenwriter for Ravi Teja’s previous hit, Balupu) seems undecided if the film should be a complete mass entertainer or a cop-drama dealing with corruption. It makes the film look like a two-headed snake with each head out to eat up the other for screen space.

The film sees Ravi Teja playing two roles – one as a corrupt ACP Baldev Sahay, and other as Tirupathi, a man who desperately wants to be a police officer. Not much can be revealed about the storyline without revealing the spoilers as there are quite a few twists in the film. The first-half is filled with comedy,  and with Ravi Teja donning khakhis once again for this movie, it is a treat to watch him in the comic scenes as Tirupathi along with Brahmanandam. What with the recent state division, there is an obvious attempt to woo both the state audiences with an added lingo in Ravi Teja’s role as Tirupathi, but the dialect is now here and now gone.

The impressive interval bang with its creative edit made me expect an interesting second-half. Unfortunately, the screenplay seems to be winding into loops. The film would have probably been more emotionally-impactful if the same story had been told with a straight narrative. It would have saved the audience from a flashback within a flashback, while also saving one from watching the atrocious climax featuring Prakash Raj. It was a definite disappointment, since it was neither a mass action ending nor a serious drama ending.

Hansika Motwani and Regina Cassandra play the female leads for the two roles of Ravi Teja. Regina has improvised her appearance to suit a middle-class girl from Kolkata and plays her role well. Hansika’s scenes on the other hand, are filled with sexual innuendos and double-meaning dialogues.

On the whole, Power is a mixed fare with dollops of entertainment and serious drama unevenly mixed. Nevertheless, unlike some of the recent releases, this film is worth a watch.

Why should you watch this film?
Go to Power if you love Ravi Teja’s films. Otherwise, the screenplay is just a new twist on every old turn in his earlier masala flicks. If you love Brahmanandam you will enjoy this movie, especially its surprise element.
