Boring romantic thread
Identified for his mass-oriented entertainers, director Gopichand Malineni has written a narrative that’s pretty predictable. Nonetheless, he has positioned extra significance on the story.
The fundamental storyline revolves round a police officer attempting to pin down an area chief, which has been featured in numerous movies. However to repackage it in a shiny manner, the director advised the story with three components: a mango, a rupee be aware, and a steel nail.
Every of those components has modified the lives of three villains after they meet the principle character. How? This arouses curiosity.
Thus, the story unfolds with a terrorist telling his story and the way he was put in jail by Shankar (Ravi Teja) with a minor mistake (Rs 50 be aware).
Later, one other little wanton will get into hassle, and he seeks the assistance of Kathari Krishna (Samuthirakani) when he then tells his fracas with the police officer and the way a small nail introduced down his empire. Had it not been for this packaging, the story would have been a transparent and formal battle between villain and hero.
Gopichand’s screenplay and packaging have added some curiosity to this in any other case regular story with this component. Though he has piqued our curiosity with it, he doesn’t come out with the banal sequences.
The center part will get us concerned within the proceedings with some stunningly shot battle sequences just like the bus cease battle and seaside motion scenes. However the film slips again into routine mode after some time. As well as, there are too many fights.
Shruti Haasan and Ravi Teja’s romantic thread can also be awful.
Gopichand’s aim is to entertain the viewers of the B and C heart, and its packaging is all about motion stunts, high-pitched dialogue and classy taking, fairly than logic and novelty.
The Ongole backdrop and the ‘Kathari Krishna’ sequences could have added one thing new, however the villain turns right into a wimp in minutes, diminishing any build-up. Shruti’s character twist additionally appears compelled.
It’s a full-blown masala entertainer, and the writer-director Gopichand Malineni sticks to this template. ‘Krack’ has a superb dose of Ravi Teja’s swag, however with an ample routine. It’s an everyday masala film.
