Starring: Prabhas, Shraddha Kapoor, Mandira Bedi, Jackie Shroff, Chunky Pandey
Director:
Sujeeth
Producer: Bhushan Kumar, Vamsi Krishna Reddy, Pramod Uppalapati
Music Director: Ghibran
Rating: 2.5/5

Story:


The film is set in the backdrop of Waaji city which is ruled by Roy(Jackie Shroff). This does not go well with other members of the mafia and they try to eliminate Roy. During the same time, huge money is being robbed off from Devaraj(Chunkey Pandey) who runs the opposite gang. The cops employ an undercover cop Ashok(Prabhas) to crack this case. Who is this thief who is robbing Devaraj and his gang. What role does Ashok play in this set up. To know this you have to watch the film on the big screen.

Performance:

Prabhas has done everything possible while carrying the film on his shoulders. However, All of his efforts went in vein due to lack of good characterization. Even his look in few scenes isn't pleasing to watch. One gets the feeling Director failed to do justice to the image of Rebel Star.

Shraddha Kapoor got to play a crime branch officer in the movie. She looks beautiful and shares good chemistry with Prabhas but the romantic track is unimpressive.

Jackie Shroff didn't get much screen time. Chunky Pandey and Neil Nitin Mukesh are alright. Murali Sharma, Vennela Kishore, Arun Vijay and Mandira Bedi failed to leave a strong impact.

Plus Points:

Prabhas
Interval twist
Climax
Action Sequences

Minus Points:

Weak Characterizations
Tedious Screenplay
Too much action
Agnyathavaasi Factor

Technical Aspects:

Sujeeth lifted the main plot from the film Largo Winch and tried to deal it in 'Run Raja Run' fashion. He might have done better job if the film is made on a lesser budget. Increasing the scale has forced to include high voltage action episodes and the young director struggled to strike a balance between action scenes and the story telling.

Background score by Ghibran is good but loud at times. Songs composed by four different composers are shot well, but seem unnecessary due to bad placements. Cinematography is world class and the action stunts are sensational for Indian standards. Production values are topnotch. Producers have liberally spent to make it look like an international film.

Verdict:


On the whole, Saaho surely does not live up to all the expectations and hype laid upon it. But all this only comes in the last half an hour. Rest of the film has an improper screenplay and confuses the audience. Sujeeth’s inexperience takes the film down in many areas. So, all those who are watching this film need to lower your expectations completely down as Saaho does not have the adrenaline pumping moments which were boasted off.
