Before the fans of Telugu superstar Pawan Kalyan accuse ‘Bollywood critics’ of being unfair, you must know this is the review of a Telugu film dubbed in Hindi. So technically, this is not Pawan Kalyan’s Bollywood debut. Dubbed versions often evoke unintentional humour stemming from bizarre translation. Likewise, the dialogues are the only fun element here. For instance, the villain threatens the hero by saying, “Tumhe maarna mere liye itna aasan hai jaise chai mein sugar cube dalna.” There’s more. He refuses to meet Gabbar for a strange reason. He believes, “Woh Ek ’employee’ hai Aur aise insane ko Milna Humara insult hoga.” The jobless princess, who wanders around in pretty clothes, proudly tells her nanny, “Mujhe ek mard ne bachaya tha” (referring to Kalyan). The hero too spouts gems like, “Mere jaisa ladka tumhe Google pe bhi nahi Milega.”
Like a true power star, Kalyan makes a heroic entry (he rides a horse in slowmo with his name in capital letters being flashed alongside on the screen). You immediately assume that this will be yet another masala potboiler made to please the masses. However, things go downhill from there.
The movie puts you to sleep despite its loud execution with its yawn-worthy monotonous shenanigans. While the fans can still overlook it, the major drawback of the film is its length. Running for almost three hours, the tedious film is infested with never-ending songs that test your patience. Lack of story is the final nail in the coffin.
