'Lakshya' hit the screens today. Director Santhossh Jagarlapudi needs appreciation for choosing 'villu vidhya' as the backdrop.
The first half is spent on staging and unpacking the two setbacks that Pardhu encounters.
Naga Shaurya rises to the challenge presented by the archer's character. His 8-pack-abs look was not done in a month or two.
Jagapathi Babu and Sachin Khedekar are good, especially the latter doesn't over-emote.
Ketika Sharma's presence doesn't rev up the romantic track. That said, the heroine gets to have a say even in the crucial portions in the second half.
What makes the portions of the sport so dull is that they are embellished with stereotypical crests and troughs. Even the climax doesn't quite excite us.
'Lakshya' turns out to be a run-of-the-mill drama where the sports segments are not interesting at all.
