Ramesh Varma directorial and Ravi Teja starrer Veera has been released. The director has tried to bring the actor on the lines of Balakrishna and Chiranjeevi in the action-packed movie. But violence, Tapasee excessive skin show, wrong placement of songs, comedy and action scenes have spoiled the movie.
Veera Venkata Satyanarayana aka Veera (Ravi Teja) is the son of a landlord (Nazar). But his step mother (Roja) and step sister (Sridevi) stay in city away from them. Meanwhile, his father gets killed from a goon and Veera too murders him. However, a big industrialist (Subbaraju) plans for a power project in their village and wants to vacate the entire village and takes the help of a local don Rayudu (Pradeep Rawat). But Veera halts their efforts. At this juncture, Veera marries Kabaddi Chitti (Kajal) and his brother marries the daughter of commissioner of police.
Meanwhile, Rayudu attacks their house and kills everyone in his family including his wife Chitti, step-mother and Veera"s personal assistants and workers. Irked over this, Veera kills Rayudu. After a few years, Veera comes to know that his sister married ACP Shyam (Shaam) and he is a strict police officer. Being a strict police officer, he develops rivalry with a local don (Rahul Dev), who kidnaps Shyam"s son Moksha and kills him. What happens next should be seen on-screen.
Ravi Teja has given an energetic performance all through the film. However, the comedy track between him and Brahmanandam, Ali have not worked well. Most of the comedy scenes appeared boring instead of evoking laughter. Kajal Agarwal, who got a family heroine image after Brindavanam, have done a nice job in the movie. Tapsee has gone a little overboard in terms of exposing and she reminds the audiences of Jyothi Lakshmi and Jayamalini of yesteryears, who used to play vamp characters. Rest other are okay.
Music by Thaman is average and none of them very interesting and melodious. Action scenes are shot in a lavish and bloody way with overdose of violence which looked unnecessary. Dialogues by Abburi Ravi and Paruchuri Brothers are good at parts. Cinematography by Chota K Naidu is good, but Gauthamraju could have further sharpened scissors to trim many unnecessary scenes. The director took lot of time in establishing the love track between Ravi Teja and Kajal and it really tested the patience of audiences. The atrocious screenplay has played the spoilsport.
If you are interested in watching bloodshed and violence, this film is recommended for you.
