Verdict: Savyasachi is an interesting concept that’s decently executed.
With a never-seen-before concept based on the Vanishing Twin syndrome, arrives Savyasachi, a hard-hitting action thriller, directed by Chandoo Mondeti. Naga Chaitanya, who earlier worked with Chandoo for Premam, plays the lead protagonist, while the Munna Michael fame, Nidhhi Agerwal makes her debut in Telugu cinema alongside R. Madhavan. Bankrolled by the leading production house Mythri Movie Makers, the rest of the cast includes Bhumika Chawla, Venella Kishore, Rao Ramesh, Dishitha Sehgal, Thagubothu Ramesh, and Bharath Reddy. Chaitanya has proven his mettle as a romantic hero but is yet to get the big break in the action genre. Savyasachi, meaning ambidextrous, seems to be the promising flick for Chaitanya to deliver a hit in this genre. Let’s see if the Premam pair continues the winning streak.
What’s Savyasachi About:
Vikram Aditya (Chaitanya) is born with a Vanishing Twin syndrome and hence doesn’t have any control over his left hand. He stays with his sister Sri (Bhumika Chawla) and brother-in-law. Vikram is an ad filmmaker by profession and happens to meet his college sweetheart Chitra (Nidhhi Agerwal) after a gap of six years. They reunite after an ad shoot in New York. Just when everything seems to be going fine in Vikram’s life, he comes across the most tragic incident. Vikram suspects a foul play behind this incident. How he nabs the culprit and seeks revenge forms the rest.
Savyasachi has enough moments for viewers to gasp in disbelief and the high-octane action sequences do justice to the genre. Chaitanya amazes by portraying his character effortlessly while Madhavan plays it with the right amount of maturity. Nidhhi Agerwal makes a promising debut and is here to stay. Venella Kishore’s quirky liners and dialogues laced with humor leave the audience in splits, especially in the first half. Thagubothu Ramesh sparkles in his limited role. The way his character is intertwined to Brahmanandam’s role in Manmadhudu has been done exceptionally well.
While showcasing a new concept to the Telugu audience, Chandoo Mondeti has ensured that the core entertainment values are intact, without disturbing its essence. Keeravani’s music is rousing and adds brownie points to each of the frames. The Ninnu Road Meedha remix adds the punch and welcomes a round of claps from Akkineni’s die-hard fans. Yuvraaj’s visuals manage to paint a beautiful canvas and Kotagiri’s editing is sharp. Mythri Movie Makers’ production values stand up to the occasion.
What Could Have Been Better:
Except for a few scenes that are a little exaggerated for cinematic liberties, Savyasachi doesn’t disappoint.
Why You Should Watch:
Savyasachi gives a holistic experience to the viewers with its tight narration and is inventively concept-driven. Go for it and you will be entertained.
