Bellamkonda Srinivas was impresivve in his debut, his performance was fine for a first timer and also excelled in dances and fights. Samantha was okay as female lead as she doesn't have much scope. Prakashraj did two roles, one of a villain and another one a positive and supporting role to the hero. He lived up to his potential and added value to the movie with his screen presence. Brahmi was usual and his comedy worked out very well in pre climax . Tanikella Bharani, Raghubabu, Ravibabu and others were okay in their roles.
Story is tried and tested,successful formula oriented one for telugu movies from since long time. Screenplay was alright for the first half, Love track between Lead pair was good and comedy was also good in parts. But the movie loses the momentum right from the moment it shifts to sharjah ,the comedy scenes were just passable. Only in pre climax the comedy scenes worked the way they had to. Climax was okay. V V Vinayak made sure that all the commercial elements are present in the movie but more care on characters and emotional quotient could have made much difference.
Dialogues were alright. Camera work was too good and especially in songs. Editing was okay. Music by Devi Sri Prasad is a big plus to the movie, all songs were good on screen and background was also good. Action sequences were okay.
Alludu Seenu is time pass flick for regular movie goers. Entertainment in parts, pre climax ,Music and débutante hero are it's plus points where as weak second half and nil emotional quotient are it's minus points.
Venkatesh: He has done an excellent job in the role of rambabu. His performance gets more believable as the film progresses.,Especially in second half. Meena was perfect as a caring wife/mother. Kruthika and Baby Esther were impressive. Nadiya was too good in an important role. Ravi Kale was perfect as a bad constable. Naresh was also very good ,especially his performance climax was commendable. Saptagiri made his presence felt through some comedy scenes. Sameer,Kalicharan,Paruchuri Venkateswara rao and other supporting actors were okay.
Story is very simple but the way screenplay was written is fantastic with good twists at important situation like pre climax and at the end of the movie. Half an hour of the first half is dedicated to establish the Characters and the entire backdrop. Movie gets interesting towards interval and the tempo continues in second half and till the end. Director Sripriya did not miss the emotional impact at any time of the movie,but the scene were Nadiya gets the entire facts right about a day recreated by hero should have been more clear. Last 20 mins are big plus to the movie ,especially twist at the ending was stunning.
Dialogues were al right, Camera work was fine, Editing was good. There are only two situational songs in the movie,they were good , background score was good could have been better .
Drishyam is a Well Made Thriller with arresting screenplay and interesting twists towards climax.

Sundeep Kishan did very neat job & he has to improve a lot in sentimental scenes.Regina became the major advantage for the movie. Jagapathi Babu did with ease but his character.
Just adequate & ok.
Music & Bgm :
Songs are pretty average & Bgm remains same.
Cinematography was too good. Richness in every frame shows the absolute work from cameraman.
Ok good but there are some tiny scenes in 2nd half which is unnecessary for the screenplay.
Screenplay - Direction :
Mahesh Babu did very good job in handling the story but execution was bad. Characters are not so connected well & lost its depths in ending scenes. He maintained some good pace in first half with few laughs but second half is a big let down to the flow. He concentrated much on Regina character than Sundeep kishan in the movie. Jagapathi Babu character hs to be elevated much to get the emotional quotient.So over all he showed his loop holes as a débutante director.
Ra Ra Krishnayya is a routine fare with tiny entertainment. You can give a try if you are interested.
2.75 / 5
