Movie Title



Saba Iyappan

Star Cast

Vishal,Shriya, Prakash Raj, Ali, Tanikella Bharani

The film is about a young man from a village, who comes to Vizag in search of his elder brother, who went missing when he was five.

Can the youngster trace his brother? What obstacles does he face during his search? All this forms the crux of the film.

Murali Krishna (Vishal), a brave young man from Ramachandrapuram who comes to Vizag in search of his elder brother. He resides in a flat of his friend Ali. Murali Krishna is on his job to locate his brother to make his mother (Geeta) happy. In the process he meets Indu (Shriya) and he falls in love with her.

On the other hand, Murali Krishna has a quarrel with two most wanted and notorious gangsters Surya Prakash (Prakash Raj) and Guru (Kishore).

Prakash Raj manages the port and is involved in all types of wicked activities; Guru is doing real estate business, being a mafia don. Is Murali is successful in locating his brother and who is his brother? It has to be watched on the silver screen.

Flexing his muscles, Vishal performed an enduring job with action packed movements. Vishal acted well and he did justice to his role. He has to improve his voice while delivering weighty dialogues.

Sexy siren Shriya crackles in exposing scenes and there is no scope of acting for her in this film. Shriya has added some boost to the flick with her hot and curvy body.

Prakash Raj played the role of a gangster and acted well. Kishore as another gangster is just okay. Ali?s comedy is good but Krishna Bhagawan failed to impress the audience with his weak comedy track.

Tanikella Bharani with his good flair shrank himself as an associate for the villainous elements. MS Narayana, Telangana Shakunthala, Geeta and others suited well for their roles.

Director Sabha Ayyappan has come up with a routine and outdated storyline. The presentation of the movie is okay but the narration fails to spot the intensity. There is no sufficient strength in the script and the screenplay runs on average footing.

Mani Sharma?s music is average while cinematography of Priyan is ok. The art department did an excellent job and the costumes were appropriate. Editing could have been improved. The production values are good.

First half of the film runs at slow pace with a regular comedy track and some romantic scenes. In second half, there are some sentimental and action scenes. There are no exciting moments anywhere for the audiences when the film draws to a close.

Verdict: Below Average
