Victory Venkatesh, Tapsee starrer Shadow is grandly releasing today across the world. The film was directed by Mehar Ramesh and produced by Paruchuri Shivarama Prasad under U Square Entertainments banner. SS Thaman has scored music for this movie. Let us read on our exclusive review to know how the movie is!
Brief STORY:
Raghu Ram (Naga Babu) is a honest journalist. He prepares a detailed documentary on International Mafia don Nana Bhai (Adithya Pancholi). Due to some bad buddies, The documentary reaches Nana Bhai. Nana Bhai kills Raghu Ram and his family. Raja Ram alias Shadow (Venkatesh) decides to take revenge on Nana Bhai.
            How Shadow destroys Nana Bhai's estate forms the rest of the story.
Positive Aspects:
  • Venkatesh gave good performance. His Shadow get up with beard is just ok. He looks extremely handsome as Raja Ram. He played 3 different roles in the movie as Shadow, Raja Ram and Chanti (As a memory loss patient).
  • When compared to her other films, Tapsee is cute and gorgeous. Her dances are extremely well in the song Naughty Girl.
  • SS Thaman given good music and BGM's.
Negative Aspects:
  • Routine story.
  • Maintained very slow pace till the end of the movie.
  • Srikanth's role.
  • Mehar Ramesh tried to bring few laughs with MS Narayana and few others. But, The scenes are really wasted. Finally, No comedy in the entire movie!
  • The spoof of Gabbar Singh and Billa swimming pool scenes are worst.
  • Talented actors like Suman, Rao Ramesh, Jayaprakash Reddy, Venu, Thagubothu Ramesh and others are wasted.
Technical Analysis:
Routine screen play. Cinematography is ok. Songs picturization is good, Especially Gola Gola, Pilla Manchi Bandhobastu gunde and Naughty Girl.
        Mehar Ramesh completely failed to direct the film. His directional skills are too weak. Till now, All of his films Bobby, Kanthri, Shakthi ..etc. are big disasters except Billa, Which is the remake of Tamil film Billa. Now, Another film is added to Mehar Ramesh's account.
Shadow is a film with Routine story. Except Venkatesh and Tapsee, Nothing good in the movie. If you are expecting entertainment, Skip this film. Only watch the film, If you are die hard fan of Mehar Ramesh/Venky. Else, skip the film!

RATING: 2.25/5
