Movie Review : /5
|Reviewed on||Jun-05-2007 |
Lakshyam is a revenge plot based film directed by debutante Sree Vaas. Gopichand, Jagapati Babu, Kalyani and Anushka are in the lead. Gopichand and Jagapati babu are brothers. Bose (Jagapati Babu) is a honest cop who is a pain in the neck to the goons in Hyderabad. Section Shankar (Yashpal Sharma) and his accomplices commissioner and home minister plan to kill him and succeed in doing so. Knowing this, Chandu takes revenge on the three king pins who played role in killing his brother.
Performance wise, Gopichand is as usual. He is in fine spirits, looked good and performed well. First half he enacts a lover boy and goes into an emotional mode in the second half. He seems to have taken care with dances and did fights very well. Anushka is impressive in her role. She is very expressive. Compared to her earlier films, she seemed to have went more with glamour in this film. She is good in songs.
Jagapati Babu is seen as police officer. He did the role with a definite style. Kalyani and Kota as wife and father of Jagapati Babu did their roles well. Comedy done by Brahmanandam, Venu Madhav is okay. Raghu Babu's comedy is better in the film. Yashpal Sharma is a good actor. His voice is a big asset (Apaharan fame). Since his voice was dubbed, the feel missed a bit. Also, he did not appear to be his self in the film. Ahuti Prasad, Devaraj, Asish vidyarthi and others did their role to content.
Ali's dialogue counting parts in the body evokes heavy laughter. Similarly, Brahmanandam's comedy with Venu Madhav is good at times. Overall, comedy by the trio is good in parts.
The crew is filled with crafted technicians and good star casting. Director Sree Vaas made the film like a seasoned director. Camera work by Sekhar Joseph is excellent. Each frame in the film is worth praising. However, there is something amiss in the film. That could be because of the screenplay.
Film takes off at a good pace and continues the tempo for 15 minutes. The way flashback enters and exits is also done nice. It is the flashback episode that took the beating. Almost the entire first half revolves on Gopichand and Anushka, and the love track. That and not so good comedy might have played their part in spoiling the broth.
Music by Mani Sharma is good. Yevado yevado, Suku Suku, Chakkarakeli, Niluvave songs are very good. Visually, songs are extraordinary. Editing by Gautam Raju is average.
Though debutante director Sree Vaas assures bundle of talent, the film stands as an average film overall.
