PSV Garuda Vega 126.18M Review!
Director: Praveen Sattaru
Producer: M Koteswara Raju
Music Director: Sricharan Pakala
Starring: Rajasekhar, Pooja Kumar, Kishore, Shraddha Das, Adith Arun
The much-awaited long-time film, PSV Garuda Vega is truly rocking the theatres. The action thriller that has high-octane action sequences and adventure elements, could well be the beginning of Rajasekhar’s second innings in Tollywood. Produced on a staggering budget of 25 Crores (considering Rajasekhar’s previous film budgets), Garuda Vega has rich production values complemented with engaging screenplay and direction.
Rajasekhar plays the role of an honest NIA (National Investigation Agency) agent in the film. His commitment towards his professions badly impacts his marital life with his wife Swathi, played by Pooja Kumar. Swathi is often seen complaining about the lack of quality time the couple has been spending together.
During this time, Sekhar (Rajasekhar) is handed over a critical case. Initially, the case is said to be related to a bomb explosion when it reaches Sekhar. But with the ongoing investigation, Sekhar comes across the various chain of events that completely shadow of what was reported to him. He finds that there is a whole chain of mafic and terrorist networks linked to that ‘simple’ bomb explosion. From there, the story is all about how Sekhar was able to resolve such a complicated case, and how was he able to cope up with his marital life parallelly.
Though the storyline appears to be wafer thin, the way it was narrated speaks volumes about the director. The screenplay and cinematography were handled, surely leaves the audience awestruck. Right from the first action episode in Darjeeling and until the last action picturized around Charminar before the interval, Telugu audience will be spellbound, witnessing actions sequences never heard and seen in Telugu Film Industry. By the time the second half picks up its pace, the central plot of Garuda Vega is revealed, and the audience experiences a ‘random story’ for the most part. But the director, Praveen Sattaru manages to clinch the audience heartbeat with the last 20 minutes of the film. The pre-climax and climax sequences are going to be testimonials of the hard work the director and the hero have put in.
Director’snarration and screenplay complimentRajasekhar’s ‘Angry Youngman’ image on the screen. Garuda Vega surely marks the grand entry of Rajasekhar into Telugu Film Industry. Rajasekhar with his action sequences takes us back 25 years into history.He has done what all he could possibly do. Pooja Kumar, Shraddha Das, Ali, Posani Krishna Murali and others have played their roles pretty. Srinivas Raju’s decision to produce the film with Rajasekhar as hero and Praveen Sattaru as a director is clearly a gutsy move.
