The music and the background score have been rendered by S. S. Thaman while cinematography has been handled by S. V. Visheshwar.

For the first time in the mega family, two heroes are competing for their movies on the same weekend with Varun Tej’s Tholi Prema hitting the screens tomorrow. The fans in the mega family are in for an absolute treat this weekend. Let’s see what Inttelligent has in store for Sai Dharam Tej fans and for Telugu movie lovers across the world.
What’s Inttelligent About:
Dharma Teju (Sai Dharam Tej) is a software employee in a company owned by Nanda Kishore (Nassar). This company has set an example for its morals and good values. However, Nanda Kishore is forced to sell off his company before he commits suicide. Dharma Teju comes to know that a dreaded gangster named Vicky Bhai (Rahul Dev) is behind the death of Nanda Kishore. Dharma Teju vows to avenge the people responsible for his death and in the process, turns into Dharma Bhai. How Dharma Bhai takes on Vicky Bhai and the gang forms the rest of Inttelligent.
Sai Dharam Tej is at his best in the role of a software engineer and as Dharma Bhai. He shows immense potential in his acting skills. We see some wonderful dances and breath-taking action sequences from him. Lavanya is beautiful as a rich girl and is sultry in certain scenes. The remixed song between the lead pair works well. Sapthagiri and Rahul impress everyone in the comedy scenes. Posani, Brahmanandam and Jai Prakash Reddy are also successful in adding some comic relief. The music, background score and cinematography gel well with the narration. The editing is crisp with a run time of just over two hours.
What Could Have Been Better:
The story and narration seem formulaic. Having said that, Inttelligent is entertaining and checks all the boxes for a mass entertainer.
Why You Should Watch:
Inttelligent is a fun-filled mass masala emotional action entertainer that is aimed at audience seeking good old commercial movie.
