* Allu Arjun has delivered wonderful performance. He impresses the audience with his action, dance and comedy timing that reveals his magic again. With his trendy costumes, Arjun has set a new style for himself in this movie.
* Shruti Hassan has also done her best and rocked with her glamour.
* The first half of the film has a couple of romantic songs, good volume of comedy and an action scene, which keeps the audience engaged.
* Saloni and Shyam, who have important roles in it, have done justice to their characters.
* As “Kill Mill Pandey”, Bramhanandam tickles the funny bones of the viewers. His role in second half is a big asset for the film. He punched with the dialogues like, “Cut-out choosi konni konni nammeyali dude…..”
* As MLA Govardhan, Posani Krishna Murali also creates a laugh riot in the cinema halls.
* 40 Minutes of climax is Simply Awesome.
* There is not much to talk about the movie in negative sense, except
the scenes with Prakash Raj were far away from reality.
Technical Aspects :
* Race Gurram has good sound production elements.
* Thaman’s soundtracks and background score are the main attractions in the technical front. His songs have already become chartbusters.
* Cinematographer Manoj Paramahamsa has also done brilliant job, which is one of the big assets of the film. Especially, his picturisation of beautiful locales in song sequences is a visual treat.
* Ram-Lakshman’s choreography of fight sequences are good. The dance choreography is another big asset of the film.
* The selection of costumes and location is fantastic and simply superb.
* Goutham Raju’s editing is also commendable.
Telugumirchi Analysis :
Overall, Race Gurram has excellent performances by lead actors, engrossing narration and rich production values, despite lack of fresh story line. Leaving the logic a side, Race Gurram will definitely entertain the audience. There is no movie at the box office except Legend in this summer season. This is a good feast for mass as well as class who are looking for a good movie.
