Tell us how many times will Chinni Krishna make the same old story? And what is director VV Vinayak doing when he was given such a repeated and run of the mill script. Perhaps Vinayak thought to compensate the lusterless script using technical extravagance in large quantity but we are afraid that's gone horribly wrong. There are few shots that hooks the audience with lot of enthusiasm but only in bits and pieces. Graphics and other technical aspects are not put to best of the use to suit the script. Director VV Vinayak did not have the perfect script and gripping screenplay to convince the subject on the celluloid.
- Visual Ggrandeur
- Allu Arjun's dance
- Weak story
- Screenplay not gripping
- Copy of scenes from previous movies
- Predictable scenes and climax
- Unnecessary songs
Allu Arjun looks masculine with his toned body but his dialogues does not match his physique. He has improved a lot in his dialogue delivery but he needs to still work on his script selection. There are too many dance steps but they lack grace.
Tamanna has delivered a matured performance. She already proved her mettle with 100% Love movie and this role in Badrinath is just an extension not only in terms of glamor but also in performance. Prakash Raj does welll as Guru. The charters of Brahmanandam, Dharmavarapu Subramanyam and MS Narayana are a waste.
Production values of Geeta Arts are impressive and it is one of the biggest spent movie of Telugu cinema industry. MM Keervani has done an OK job for the music. Three songs are foot-tapping and fantastically choreographed. Rest of the songs are not so catchy and peppy. The background score once again resembles Indra and Magadheera. Art work is commendable. Top-notch camerawork and performances in this episode alone are worth tons of praises but the dialogues by Rajendra are also not awe-inspiring and powerful.
Badrinath is yet another movie that tried to repeat Magadheera and has bitten the dust. Its time for guys like Chinni Krishna and VV Vinayak to seriously think and discuss about their skills. And in one word, Badrinath is hapless.
