Ram Pothineni, Krithi Shetty starrer 'The Warriorr' hit the screens today. Directed by Lingusamy, Music by Devi Sri Prasad. Here is the Short Review.
Dr Satya (Ram Pothineni) is a doctor who feels extremely enraged when a young man he is treating is killed by the henchmen of Guru (Aadhi Pinisetty). Now, Guru is a dreaded goonda in Kurnool. When Satya takes on Guru as a doctor, he fails miserably.
Director N Lingusamy makes his Telugu film debut with a formulaic story that hardly attempts to go beyond template scenes. The hero-villain scenes are routine, with most of them making little sense. There is no trace of novelty anywhere.
The only element that looks somewhat refreshing is that the hero starts out as a doctor. The MBBS-qualified doctor turns into an IPS officer, driven by some experiences in life.
In the first hour, Ram's character is just learning about the goings-on in Kurnool, which is under the vice-like grip of Guru. The second hour has him sport a macho look, complete with a twirled moustache.
A Radio Jockey named Whistle Mahalakshmi (Krithi Shetty) becomes the glamorous face of the film. Her love track with Sathya is puffy. The dialogues between them are lifeless.
Aadhi Pinisetty shines in the powerful role of Guru.
Devi Sri Prasad's BGM can be written off; it's as impactful as Ajay's character in the film (if you are searching for Ajay's character in the film, well, keep searching).
The cinematography and other technical departments don't cover themselves in glory.
'The Warriorr' tells an utterly predictable, template-heavy story.
