Verdict: Zing, zing…amazing!
Supreme is Sai Dharam Tej's fourth film after Pilla Nuvvu Leni Jeevitham, Rey and Subramanyam for Sale. Also, it is his third film for Dil Raju's Sri Venkateswara Creations. For Anil Ravipudi, it is his second directional venture after Pataas. Expectations are rife as there are big names associated with it and also crucial for all the major players involved. Let's see if Anil Ravipudi was able to re-create the magic on screen.
A young kid Rajan is a legal heir of Jaagruti Estate that is spread over 1500 acres and around 15000 people are dependent on their daily livelihood. Vikram Sarkar (Kabir Duhan Singh) is a powerful tycoon, who tries to manipulate the ownership records and occupy Jaagruti Estate through illegal means. However, the court orders the people to submit proofs of the legal heirs to this estate within 30 days, in order to resolve this issue.
Balu (Sai Dharam Tej) is a cab driver and fondly calls his cab Supreme. Bellam Sridevi (Rashi Khanna) is a sub-inspector, who thrives to receive awards. How Rajan meets Balu and what Balu does for Rajan to get justice forms the major portion of the story.
Sai Dharam Tej as Balu excels in the role of a cab driver. He has improved immensely as an actor and his dance movements are praiseworthy. Rashi Khanna as Bellam Sridevi is glamorous in the role of SI and has good comic timing. Prabhas Srinu and Prudhvi Raj are extremely hilarious in their roles of car thieves and the way they say their catchphrase "Zing Zing Amazing" is fabulous. Rajan as the legal heir did justice to his role. Kabir Duhan Singh as Vikram Sarkar stands out in the role of an antagonist. Rest of the cast is apt. One of major highlights of the movie is the fight sequence towards the end, executed by handicapped body builders. It was a treat to watch.
Story, screenplay, dialogues and direction by Anil Ravipudi is on target. He was able to set the silver screen on fire. He followed the same formula that he had used for Pataas and was successful in delivering the goods. Music by Sai Karthik is melodious and the re-mix of yesteryear's hit Hindum Hindolam has been done superbly. Lyrics by Rama Jogayya Sastry and Shyam Kasarila are good. Cinematography by Sai Sriram is excellent especially in the action sequences that come in the latter half. Editing by M.R.Varma is slick. Choreography is on fleek and all the action sequences are well executed.
Why You Should Watch This Movie:
Some hilarious entertaining episodes, mixed with a wonderful story and strong emotions makes Supreme a wholesome family entertainer. Book a ticket at a theater near you and get entertained this weekend.
