Parama Veera Chakra review


Dasari Narayana Rao

Star Cast

Balakrishna, Ameesha Patel, Sheela, Neha Dupia, Jayasudha

Chakradhar (Balakrishna) plays a popular actor in the movie who has a huge fan base.

One day, a military officer (Muralidhar) comes to Chakradhar to narrate a story based on the Indian Army. Chakradhar is drawn to the hero of the story, Major Jayasinha.

The officer stops narrating after a point and asks him to come to Himachal Pradesh to introduce the real Jayasinha. Who is Jayasimha and in what way is he connected to Chakradhar forms the rest of the story.

Dasari Narayana Rao never worked with Nandamuri Balakrishna in the 149 films he had directed. This is his 150th film and his first with Balakrishna. Having made blockbusters like Bobbili Puli and Saradar Paparayudu with Balakrishna's father late NTR, the veteran director has once again written a story based on army officers.

In Bobbili Puli, NTR played the role of a jawan. Parama Veera Chakra starts with climax sequences of Bobbili Puli and sadly, the director is stuck in that era. From the beginning of the movie to the end, it is filled with cliched scenes, outdated dialogues, theatrical narration and 80's like entertainment.

Dasari's attempt to connect with the new generation with this film does not materialise.

Balakrishna does justice to his role in the movie. He excels as Raavana and his dialogues praising the actors on their social work are sure to thrill his fans.

Three glamour girls, Sheela (okay), Ameesha Patel (competent), and Neha Dupia (provides glamour in a negative role), have hardly much to do. Comedy by Brahmanandam and Ali and the spoof on Robot are unimpressive. Senior actors like Murali Mohan and Jayasudha have done a neat job.

The film fails miserably on technical departments. None of the songs composed by Manisharma are worth listening to. Music is the biggest drawback. Even the cinematography by Ramana Raju is substandard and all other technical team's efforts are patchy.

Parama Veera Chakra doesn't entice even die-hard fans of Balakrishna. The movie is cliched and outdated. Veteran director Dasari once again shows that he's still stuck in the 80's.

Rating: Two stars
