Mass Maharaj Ravi Teja has reached the big screens this Friday with powerful mass entertainer Veera. Veera is prestigious project for Ravi Teja as it is the highest budget film so far in the Star’s career. Veera has Kajal Agarwal and Tapsee as the female leads. The duo earlier acted in Mr.Perfect and scored super hit. Will the duo prove lucky to Ravi Teja too with Veera? Will Ravi Teja’s biggest budget gain success? Read on…
The story takes off with a goon Rahul Dev planning to take revenge on ACP Shyam (Shyam) for arresting him. Deva (Raviteja) will be appointed for giving special security to Shyam’s family. Deva gets friendly with entire Shyam’s family except Shyam’s wife Satya (Sridevi). In the meantime, Ikee (Taapsee), a neighbor falls in love with Deva.However Deva dont respond to her love. Story takes a twist when Shyam gets to know that Deva is not appointed by Government officials? Who is Veera? What is his background and why does he comes to save Shyam’s family forms the rest of the story.
Ravi Teja gives an admiring performance and he always delivers his best as per his part is considered. However, his typical comic drama and humor quotient is missing in Veera as the movie is highly packed with mass fights. Otherwise, Ravi Teja makes his performance count.
Tapsee looked extremely hot and glamorous in the film. Not just with the looks, but she essayed her role with utmost confidence.
Kajal Agarwal delivers a flawless performance as Kabaddi Chitti.
Brahmanandam succeeds in providing some fun-filled moments and is the only relief in the first half of the film. Divya Vani, Shyam, Subba Raju, Pradeep Rawat gives a commendable performance while Ali, Supreet, Venu Madhav are okay in their regular roles.
Music by Thaman stands out with most of them being entertaining numbers and he has comeup with an inspiring background score. Cinematography by Chota.K.Naidu is on top-class, especially the song picturisation locales keeps you glued to the screens. On the flip side, editing is the minus for the film that has many avoidable scenes. Screenplay is highly predictable and directorial skills of Ramesh Varma are mediocre. Director Ramesh Varma could have handled such complex subject tight script but the poor narration and execution made Veera weak.
Ravi Teja might have accepted Veera project as his character has dual shades and scope for performance. Such films need well-written script and good screenplay. But Veera utterly fails in both these aspects. Though the first half manages to have some fun-filled moments in the form of Ravi Teja and Brahmanandam also have some twists in the story that takes you by surprise, however it is the second half that makes you feel the torture. The second half of the film is highly predictable and there aren’t any interesting elements that keep you glued to the screens. At the box-office, Veera might find hard to get back its investment.
Veera is utterly boring and disappointing!!!
