What it’s all about?
The film Anjaneyulu is about an upright young man Ravi Teja and how he takes on the criminal elements in society for killing his innocent parents and others and depicting it s a bus accident.
Anjaneyulu (Ravi Teja) is a happy go lucky person working in a private TV channel. He loves his parents very much and they too love him immensely as he is their only child. Anjaneyulu falls in love with Anjali (Nayanatara) at first sight. Anjali works in a cell phone company, Airtel. Bada (Sonu Sood), Jayaprakash Reddy, Kota Srinivasa Rao and an evil home minister run criminal activities in the city.
Sonu Sood has a running feud with Kota over control of the city. Sonu Sood is assigned the task of killing a honest official who has a secret dossier on home minister’s corrupt activites and he is about to hand it over to the chief minister. Sonu Sood sets the bus in which the honest official travelling on fire and passes it off as a accident.
Unfortunately Anajaneyulu’s parents are also on board the same bus and they too die along with the other passengers. It is now up to Anjaneyulu to expose the evil gangsters and bring them to book. This he does while helping his colleague Brahmaji at the TV channel to expose the misdeeds on the channel.
The film is a Ravi Teja show all the way. The director has penned the script keeping Ravi Teja in mind and he in turn does full justice to his role. The film is yet another good one from Ravi Teja. Ravi Teja also does some daring fight scenes to the delight of his fans.
Nayanatara seems to be off colour for most part of eh film. She has a limited role and appears in three songs with the hero. She also fails to sizzle to the disappointment of her fans.
Sonu Sood gets a lot of build up but in the end he does not come across as the mighty villain as he is supposed to be. Kota appears in a breif role and so does Prakash Raj. Jayaprakash Reddy appears in yet another routine role.
Brahmanadam gets a rather lengthy role as creative head Prabhakar and he manages to raise laughter. Brahmaji plays an investigative TV journalist. Nazar plays the role of father to Ravi Teja. The rest of the star cast is okay.
Music is above average and the all the songs are set to some fast foot taping music. Ravi Teja bashes up the goons at regular intervals to the delight of his fans.
The bottom line:
Anajaenyulu is a good time pas film with the typical Ravi Teja brand of humour and action. The screenplay is not tight and the director at times falters in ensuring a smooth flow and this affects the overall impact of the film.
Still, Anajeneyulu ends up as a decent lighthearted entertainer that can be watched once.
