Covid was responsible for the creation of Acharya. Chiranjeevi and Charani’s film has just released to cinemas. Let’s see if it lives up to the expectations.
Dharmasthali is the setting for the thriller. Basava (Sonu Sood), a temple pupil who has now engaged in unlawful activities in the town, appears. Acharya (Chiranjeevi) enters and starts an uprising against Basava. However, his arrival at Dharmasthali has a purpose that is linked to Siddha (Rama Charan). Who is this Siddha? What connection does he have with Acharya? And who will protect Dharmasthali? Watch the film on the big screen to find out what happens next.
It’s been a long time since we’ve seen Megastar Chiranjeevi on the big screen. His charisma, screen presence, and burning intensity in his eyes are all intact, and he gives a good performance. Even at this age, Chiru performs dances, fights, and utters words with considerable skill. The film’s emotional emphasis is on him.
With each movie, Ram Charan is merely inventing, as was proven in this entry. He transforms into a raving madman at the end of the film, as Siddha, a boy from Gurukul. The second half’s highlights include Chiranjeevi and Charan’s scenes with Koratala Siva, which are flawlessly performed by him.
Pooja Hegde gets a small part, but she looks adorable as an Indian native. Their chemistry is good. The spectacle in the movie is fantastic, and the sets and action pieces are excellent. The song of the Bhale Banjaras will be a treat for fans, and it occurs at an ideal moment in the narrative.
Another disadvantage of the film is its predictable storyline. Apart from the setting of Dharmasthali, the fundamental concept is the same: good versus evil paradigms with no new ideas.
The first half is rather uneventful, and the film takes a turn. Chiranjeevi, who is recognized for his energy, is shown in a subdued light and is only in his element for the songs and fights. To give more flair to Ram Charan’s character, he has been kept quite understated and gets his due solely in the conclusion. The climax also looks rushed and unnatural, with no enough substance for Chiranjeevi to really go all out.
Another disadvantage of the film is that there isn’t much of a bad guy. There’s no strong conflict point for the hero to address, and the weak villain exacerbates matters. Sonu Sood has a kind of image following Covid crisis, so he doesn’t look frightening. Jisshu Sen Gupta also fails to make an impression.
Music by Mani Sharma is passable, but his background music could have been better in a few instances to enhance the drama. One of the most intriguing aspects of Acharya is its temple town Dharmastahli. The majority of the film takes place in this setting, and one can’t help but believe that the entire temple town is a set. Suresh deserves credit for doing an excellent job as art director.
The dances were nice, and the ones in the father and son number were fantastic. The words are meaningful, and Koratala Siva’s lines are witty. The fights written especially for the father and son are quite beautiful to look at.
In the case of director Koratala Siva, he has simply failed to deliver. The scenes between Chiru and Charan have been superbly handled by Koratala, pleasing the fans. However, in terms of taut storytelling, which is his strong suit, he fails to deliver. The writing of Koratala is rather ineffective because there isn’t enough drama to elevate the action.
Overall, Acharya is a temple town drama with some excellent father-son moments. The backdrop is good, but the story is weak and does not provide the audience a thrill. There’s no originality in the narrative, and there’s no excitement to be found in a Koratala film. With their chemistry and strong screen presence, Chiranjeevi and Charan make the fans happy despite the fact that the storyline isn’t particularly exciting.
