Lakshya Movie Review: Nagashourya started his career as a hero with the movie ‘Imagination Whispers’ .. He got good recognition with that movie. He then went on to make a name for himself in Tollywood, showing his diversity to the film industry. He completed over twenty films in a very short time. He became a producer with the movie ‘Chalo’ and his first film was a hit. After that his performance as a producer and hero was overturned at the box office, Ashwatthama. Taking a break from this, Love and Family Entertainer recently greeted the audience with ‘Groom Wanted’. It also did not achieve the level of success expected. With this, he was ready to experiment once again. For the first time in his career, he made a movie ‘Lakshya’ with a sports based concept. Already released posters and teasers have also created a huge hype on the movie. In addition to that, the promotions also created hype on the ‘target’ by making it new and very grand. How impressive was the film that came out to the audience this Friday (December 10) amid huge anticipation? And did this movie hit Nagashourya on the hit track? Let’s see in the review

Kathentante ..

Parthu (Nagashourya)’s parents die when he was a child. He grows up with his grandfather Raghuramaiah (Sachin Khedekar). Like his father, Pardo loved archery. The grandfather who recognized the player in him .. somehow wants to make his grandson a great archery player. He leaves town for it and comes to the City. He sells all his assets and gives his granddaughter coaching. Pardhu also worked hard to become the State Eleven Champion. Grandpa then dies of a heart attack while preparing for the World Champion Trials. With this, Pardhu becomes severely addicted and becomes addicted to drugs. If he was taking drugs he would not be mistaken for the arrow he left. Knowing this, the academy suspends him. Who is the cause of the actual Parthian drug addiction? What is the role of Rhita in his life? Sarathi (Jagapatibabu) who saved Pardhu at the time of his death .. Who? What is his background? Did Parthu, far removed from archery, again succeed in holding the arrow? Did Grandpa fulfill his dream of becoming a world champion? That’s the rest of the story.

Who did it?

Nagashourya played the role of Parthu, an archery player. He made an eight-panel body for the film. The difficulty with which he fell appeared on the screen. Nagashourya looks very new in terms of look. He also acted well in the emotional scenes that came when his grandfather died. And ‘romantic’ bhama Ketika Sharma .. did justice to Rhita’s character. Impressed with the acting rather than the glamor. Sachin Khedekar once again showed his experience as a hero grandfather on screen. Jagapathi Babu’s acting as captain is good. Satya, Bharat Reddy, Shatra and the rest of the cast did justice to their roles.

How is it ..

Most of the sports themed movies are in Telugu. One, along with Sai, this year’s Nitin ‘Check’ and Sandeep Kishan’s ‘A1 Express’ were also screened in the background. However, the uniqueness of ‘Lakshya’ is that it is the first film to have a purely archery theme. Along with the sports back drop there is also the grandfather grandson sentiment. However the director failed to show it on screen. Fast Stop is as simple as watching old movies. There are no wow scenes or twists anywhere. The whole story is already known. The average viewer of a movie can smell the hero being addicted to drugs and whoever it may be. Stretching the story according to the imagination of the audience is a minus for the film. The interval scene does not seem too interesting.

If you think it will be a bit interesting after Jagapathi Babu’s entry in the second half .. there will be disappointment too. Nagashourya said in an interview that the body of the eight plates was made as per the story demand. But he could not show on screen what the story needed to be like. The climax scenes also go flat. Nothing new happens from the beginning to the end of the movie. It should be said that Kalabhairava music is also limited. The director could not get good songs from a young music director like Kalabhairava who had given good songs and background music in the past. The background score also did not workout. The cinematography is good. The production values ​​are in line with the cinematic level. In a word .. the arrow left by the director missed the target. We have to wait till the weekend to see how the ‘goal’ goal is achieved in terms of collections.
