Mega Star Chiranjeevi is coming before the audience with the flick Waltair Veerayya which is carrying massive expectations. Bobby Kolli is the director of the film. Mass Maharaja Ravi Teja‘s screen presence has doubled the buzz. The film hit the theaters today. Let us check out the review.
Veerayya (Chiranjeevi) is a fisherman in the Waltair region. Due to Kaala (Prakash Raj), Veerayya had to face criminal charges. He had a mission on hand and flies to Malaysia.
How Veerayya brings down the biggest drug mafia and how Ravi Teja’s character steps into the story are to be seen.
Chiranjeevi is impressive in the role. Though his antics in a few scenes seem outdated, his comedy timing is intact. He does well in emotional and action sequences as well.
Shruti Haasan offers nothing to the movie. Catherine is just used as a filler.
Ravi Teja is seen in a Police Officer role. He does well with the screen time he has. Chiranjeevi and Ravi Teja’s combination sequences are very good and appeal to the masses.
Prakash Raj’s villany is regular. Bobby Simha’s character lacks depth. The comedy department is shared by many but the effectiveness is not worth it.
Others are regular
The music by Devi Sri Prasad is good. His background music is effective as well. Three songs in the movie stand out. The Cinematography is very good. The Artwork in the Boss Party song is too good. The production values are adequate. The action sequences are far too stretched. The editing could be crispier.
The writing is bland at times and effective in other places. A few elevation sequences worked in the favor. Bobby tried to showcase vintage Chiranjeevi in the film and he was successful in parts. Overall, Bobby could have done a better job in handling Chiranjeevi’s charisma.
Waltair Veerayya is a commercial potboiler. The attempt to showcase vintage Chiranjeevi didn’t do many wonders. Overall, Waltair Veerayya is an average mass commercial entertainer which has its high moments. The first half is breezy with a few ups and downs. The second half lags at times. The climax is a big letdown. The combination sequences of Chiranjeevi and Ravi Teja are the major attraction of the film.
