What it’s about?
Sathyameva Jayathe is yet another cop film. The film is about an honest police officer vs. a corrupt and crooked home minister.
Sathya (Rajashekar) is a dreaded police officer who has killed over 50 terrorists in encounters. Many think that he is mad but he is actually a sincere officer who is committed to his job.
Sathya faces many hurdles in his profession. His own boss, police commissioner Ahuthi Prasad is corrupt and he helps home minister Sayaji Shinde in carrying out dirty work.
Chief Minister M Sathyanarayana Rao is a kind man and he backs Sathya fully in weeding out terrorists from society. Sathya is sent on a mission to bring a suspected terrorist Ansari to court in Hyderabad from Visakhapatnam.
But the dreaded terrorist Milind Soman is after Sathya and tries to stop him from brining Ansari to court. But Sathya, who has even lost his wife Sanjana in the hands of the terrorist, is determined to complete his task successfully. He accomplishes it finally with the help of his team members, Sivaji, Neetu Chandra and Siva Reddy.
The Best scene:
There is no scene in the film that is really gripping or one that touches your heart.
The film is centered on Rajashekar and he hogs the limelight for most part in the film. He is okay as a cop but strangely, there is not much intensity in his role.
Jayanthi makes a comeback after a long time but her role is all too brief.
Sayaji Shinde and Milind Soman are okay. Sivaji’s attempt at comedy falls flat. Neetu Chandra does not have noting much to do and same is the case with Siva Reddy.
Ali and Brahmanandam appear in guest roles.
The bottom line:
Director Jeevitha fails to infuse enough suspense and drama in the film. Part of the blame should go to Rajashekar who has provided the story and the screenplay.
The film is dull and boring and even a couple of items songs fail to lift up your spirits.
Unless you are a fan of Rajashekar, the film will not hold much interest for you. It can be safely given a miss.
