Saaho Movie Review - Hollywood Range Action and Lack of EntertainmentVijayan Sankar (Author) Published Date : Aug 30, 2019 13:34 IST
Mixed reviews for Prabhas Saaho - Hollywood range action and lack of entertainment: Saaho fails to achieve the feet of Baahubali, is the mixed review of Prabhas Saaho released today. The first half seems to be slow compared to the second half. The last forty minutes are filled with Hollywood action sequences. Tamil Nadu people seem to like more of Arun Vijay acting in Saaho. But for the Telugu people, Prabhas with stylish looks and macho action performance will be a treat to them.
The storyline of Saaho: Prabhas plays the role of a cop to save the Waji city and unearth the crimes which lead to a bounty of 2000 crores. This one sentence will explain the movie's story in full. Though there are some exciting twists by director Sujeeth in the interval block and one during the climax, the storyline is familiar. Prabhas and the Hollywood stunt master Kenny Bates steal the show with some Hollywood style actions scenes in the last forty minutes of the movie.
Prabhas - the saviour of Saaho: Saaho is saved by Prabhas macho and stylish presence in the movie. Though there is not much chemistry in the love scenes with gorgeous Shraddha Kapoor, Prabhas excels in the actions scenes. The enormous amount spent on the actions scenes is the only highlight of the movie. And Prabhas justifies the one-man army to save the Waji city will be much enjoyed by the Telugu people than others in India.
Ghibran & Arun Vijay in Saaho: Among the two Tamil participants in the movie, Coimbatore based Ghibran scored well during the BGM in the action scenes. Though failed to impress in the much-expected love songs between Prabhas and Shraddha Kapoor, Ghibran scored well in the background music.
The Tamil Nadu audiences well praise Arun Vijay's acting in the movie. After his stunning performance in Thala's Unnai Arinthal, this movie will give him a pan India platform for his acting skills.
Though, with huge budget and expectations, Saaho will enthral only the Telugu audience, rather than a Pan India appeal. Also, it will not reach the feet of Bahubali of Prabhas.
