Ram Charan has definitely improved a lot in terms of his acting skills. He has done a commendable job as an IPS officer and he looks as robust as the character demand. Rakul Preet is cute and performed well and also looks gorgeous. Aravind Swamy as Siddharth Abhimanyu is terrific. He lived in the character and made it terrifying even with his stylish looks. Posani Krishna Murali is superb and evoke some laughs with his mannerisms. Nassar is good. Navdeep is certainly well performed in the small yet crucial role Jana.
Story of Dhruva is good and interesting.Screenplay is engaging despite flaws. Dialogues are well written connecting the sequences.
Songs composed by Telugu debutante Hip Hop Tamizhan are fantastic and are chartbusters already on streaming sites for the catchy tunes album has. His background score has elevated the movie to goosebumps level and it connects well with the audience. Cinematography by PS Vinod is nice and the visuals he rendered are delight to watch on big screen. Editing by Naveen Nooli is good and is crispy by far at times. Stunts and action sequences are superbly composed which makes audience jump on seats out of excitement.
- Ram Charan as Dhruva
- Aravind Swamy as Siddharth Abhimanyu
- Cinematography by P S Vinod
- Music by Hip Hop Tamizha
- A bit rested screenplay in second half
It begins with the birth of Siddharth Abhimanyu and travels through his ideology and his opportunism. This first half runs with an engaging and racy screenplay. Those who expect a laugh riot first half, this is not for you for some situational laughs. Twists and thrills in this half are nicely packed. Interval comes at a point where audience are fully engaged and the screenplay disappoints a bit for thirty to forty minutes in the second half and then picks the pace. This movie is a complete makeover and gamechanger for Ram Charan and he is to be patted for his hard work. Director Surendar Reddy succeeded well in portraying a stylish and intelligent script with an engaging screenplay on screen. To summarise, Dhruva is a hit added to the kitty of Ram Charan and have to wait how huge it turns out to be in coming days.
