Cast and Performance
Anand Deverakonda who played the role of Raju has done an okay job in his first film. His face looks plane in most of the sequences. Sivathmika Rajasekhar is good in her role. She has a good screen presence. Kishore Kumar is good in his role as a leader of a Naxal gang. Most of the actors in the movie are new faces and they did well.
The story of Dorasani is a love story of two classes in the divided society. The screenplay is good but slow. The dialogues are written well.
Prashanth R Vihari composed the songs for the movie and they are good to ears. They are mostly used as montages in the movie. The background score he composed is good and works well with the proceedings. Sunny Kurapati has shot some delightful visuals for the budget. The editing by Navin Nooli is good. The art department has done fantastic work. The rich production values add value to the movie.

Snail pace of the movie
Dorasani is a film that discusses honor killings that are prevailing in the society even today. The film begins with the introduction of the character Raju and then gets into a love story between Dorasani and Raju. Raju never forgoes an opportunity to see Dorasani and finds new ways to communicate with her. Those proceedings don’t generate much of curiosity but fear in our minds for Raju to not get caught by Dora. They become monotonous and becomes a laugh out loud moments when someone in the audience passes a comment. The second half runs in the same way and they get caught. Director Mahendra gets into some plot points like Naxalism and doesn’t explore them much. The slow pace of the movie and the dramatic happenings spoil the proceedings of the movie and makes it an average watch. To sum up, Dorasani is a one-time watchable love story that discusses the concept of honor killings.
