Posted on: 07:58 PM IST Aug 12, 2012
A film from the banner of Ramu Enterprises is always curiously watched. That is because of reputation it has earned in the commercial flicks. 'Sagar' a story from KS Kumar is absorbing at parts.
It has a good screenplay but there is a need to showcase the power of young Prajwal, as he was indulged in deadly action scenes in the film. The film lacks in making the audience believe that Prajwal can do action. The director should have done some exercise to strengthen the role of Prajwal.Otherwise it is a good pack for the family audience.
The film has three beautiful heroines and Prajwal as the romantic lead. Gurukiran and Krishnakumar's music and cinematography raises the level of the film.
Hailing from an aristocrat industrialist Rajasekhara Murthy family Sagar (Prajwal) is forced to say a lie that he is in love with Kajal. That is when the marriage is fixed with him and Priyanka (Haripriya). They decide that Unless both fall in love they will not get married is what both decide. To keep this marriage away, Sagar comes up with an idea from. Accordingly Kajal (Radhika Pandit) arrives in the house. The family agrees on this and what happens next is the action portion because Kajal is followed by international don Sonu (Dev Gill). How Sagar saves Kajal and accept her, is the remaining portion of the film.
Prajwal suits well in a romantic role while Radhika Pandit deserved some more scope to act though she has acted fine in the given role. Haripriya looks more glamorous than all.
The terror is more from Sharat Lohitashva than Dev Gill of 'Magadheera' fame. Avinash, Vinayaprasad, Swayamvara Chandru render good support.
Modhale Eke Sigalilla Neenu is a fine melody from Gurukiran and there are two other peppy tunes. Krishna Kumar cinematography gives a feast to the eyes in every frame. Rajan in editing has worked hard.
On a whole 'Sagar' is a family entertainer.
