Indra > Gudipudi Srihari Review|
Stories on the Rayalaseema faction feuds are hot favorite with producers
who are interested in making action films, as it combines family-oriented
sentimental drama and romance, as most of the feuds are between members of
a single family.
hero returns to his native place after spending some time incognito,
elsewhere. All most all the recent films are set in this mould. This way,
Indra is no different.
the difference lies in placing Chiranjeevi in situations that interest his
fans, maintaining his basic image as both action and dance star.
Scriptwriter Chinni Krishna creates special situations for the megastar to
entertain the audience. He is also shown as a leader with selfless
service. Dialogue writers Paruchuri Bothers penned with an intention -
just as they did to late NT Rama Rao, before and after he joined politics.
Dialogue is the strength of the film. And Chiranjeevi takes enough care to
effectively render them.
Indra is a hero of charitable disposition. His rivals in the area exploit
this trait in him to first grab all his property and then to send him away
from the town.
film opens with child Indrasena's family and rivalry that seeps through
three generations. And the grown up Indrasena Reddy (Chiranjeevi) suddenly
found on the banks of river Ganga in Kaasi.
him, we find his trustworthy lieutenant (Tanikella Bharani), his niece
Nandini and nephew. An orphaned young man, and a damsel in distress
(played by Sonali bendre) also stay with him.
screenplay accommodates the element of secularism, showing a Muslim leader
as Indra's friend after a couple of tumultuous scenes regarding a love
affair between Indra's nephew and Muslim chief's daughter, which ends up
in their happy marriage.
Indra also gets his sister married to the orphan. Arrives Snehalatha (Aarti),
sister of Indra's archrival Veerasimhareddy (Mukesh Rushi) to reveal that
the boy who married his sister is her own family member and he did it to
take revenge. She also says that Indrasena has not fulfilled the promise
of marrying her.
follows the flashback. Veeraseimha Reddy and his four brothers are Indra's
rivals. They want to kill Indra as he killed their father Siva Reddy in a
duel. Indra seeks the collector Chennakesava Reddy's (Prakash Raj) help to
solve water problem by building reservoir.
Veerasimha Reddy owns huge lands, where the reservoir has to come up .The
brother finally sign the documents only after indrsena gives away his
property and agrees to marry Snehalatha.Now,he has to fulfil the promise
narration takes a few more twists, after Indra gets back to his native
town, before the desired climax - a war between the brothers and Indra -
Brahmanandam, AVS and a couple of comedians entertain us in the Ganga Ghat
scenes, in Benaras. The story has a surprise element in the role played by
Sonali Bendre. For Chiranjeevi, this film is a sure comeback after some
Aarti has a significant role as the girl who admires Indrasena at heart,
but does not spare him on family issues. Sonali Bendre's role is reserved
to a couple of dance duets.
film is strong in its technical values and is also loaded with some
impossibility, projecting the hero as all-powerful. Manisarma's music is
soothing with traditional touch. VSR Swamy's photography is the highlight
of the technical part of the film.
