Rating: 2 / 5Balakrishna new Telugu Film Param Veer chakra Movie Review:
ooooh ! it seems to be bala krishna comes again in his old track in 2000’s , there is nothing new in the film. After a big hit like Simha Fans had big epextation on this Film. But This Film sets a big Disater to Audience. The Great Combination of Dasari Narayana Rao and Balakrsihna was not worked so far in this film
Chakradhar (Balakrishna) is popular actor. He does varied roles (Raavana Brahma, Komaram Bheem etc) in reel life that attracts everyone from girls (Sheela plays one of his fans and his love) to military officers. One day, a military officer (Muralidhar) comes to Chakradhar to narrate a story based on Indian Army. Chakradhar involves in the character of Major Jayasinha, as the narration unfolds. The officer stops narrating after a point and asks him to come to Himachala Pradesh to show the real Jayasinha. Who is this Jayasimha? In what way he’s connected to Chakradhar? That forms the rest of the story.
Artist performace :
Balakrishna does justice to his roles and various other getups he dons in the movie. He is excelled in the role of Raavana and his dialogues when he praises the social work of actors sure would bring whistles from his fans. There three glamour girls – Sheela (okay), Amisha Patel (competent), and Neha Dupia (provides glamour in a negative role) but they have hardly any scope. Comedy by Brahmanandam and Ali and spoof of Rajnikant’s Robot is unimpressive. Senior actors like Murali Mohan and Jayasudha have done neat job.
Technical and other Departments:
The film fails miserably on technical departments. None of the songs composed by Manisharma are worth listening. Music is biggest drawback. Even the cinematography by Ramana Raju is substandard and all other technical team’s efforts are patchy.
Until this film, veteran director Dasari Narayana Rao has never directed Nandamuri Balakrishna in the career of 149 films. This is his 150th film and a 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 on army officers. In Bobbili Puli, NTR plays the same role of a jawan. Parama Veera Chakra also starts with climax episodes of ‘Bobbili Puli’ and sadly, the director’s thoughts are stuck in that era only. From the beginning of the movie to the end, it is filled with clichéd scenes, outdated dialogues, theatrical narration and 80’s like entertainment.
Dasari’s attempt to connect to new generation with this film puts us in a test of patience. But he has not come out of his conventional style of narration that was acceptable in 80’s. Old wine in old bottle..that is the problem with the movie.
Parama Veera Chakra doesn’t entice even die-hard fans of Balakrishna. The movie is clichéd and outdated. Veteran director Dasari once again shows that he’s still stuck in the 80’s.
