Cast and Performance
Naga Chaitanya Akkineni is terrific in his role as a guy who completed his studies and searching for a perfect job. He is superb with his body language and his dialogues. Manjima Mohan is nice. She looks a bit fat but is perfect for her role. Naagineedu is good in his brief role. Baba Sehgal is superb as Inspector Kamaath.
Story of Saahasham Swaasaga Saagipo is simple and interesting. Screenplay is good and dialogues are nice.
Music by A R Rahman is fantastic. Songs he composed are delight to hear. This album is still in the list of chartbusters though it released long back. His background score has taken the movie to another level. Cinematography by Don MacArthur is fantastic. Visuals are riveting are engaging throughout the movie. Editing by Anthony is good, should have done better job in the second half. Songs are well choreographed as well as action sequences. Production values are so rich.
- Naga Chaitanya Akkineni
- Music by A R Rahman
- Vellipomaake Song
- Pre Interval
- Slow Pace
- Second Half
Saahasham Swaasaga Saagipo begins on a lighter and poetic note which has moments of love and fresh love story. Scenes between Naga Chaitanya Akkineni and Manjima Mohan are interesting and works out very well. Youth connects well with these scenes. Songs are used as background score or songs are picturised as montage sequences. All the songs are completed in the first half itself. Begins go into another level where auditorium erupt with excitement with Vellipomaake song. It comes at a perfect moment and makes the movie and even the chemistry between the leads work well. This half is nice although it runs in slow pace. First half had breezy love story and second half is more on action. Climax could have been much better to appeal more. Gautam Vasudev Menon comes out of his comfort zone and made this film more commercial compared to his previous movies. He has chosen a fresh way of narration which appeal only to youth. He has shown Naga Chaitanya Akkineni in best way possible and shown something which he did not do for a long time. To summarise, this movie is a show of Naga Chaitanya’s action shade!
