Producer: Ravi Kirane
Music Director: Bulganin
Release Date: 23/12/2016

It is now the turn of comedian Saptagiri to try his luck at boxoffice in a lead role with his latest film Saptagiri Express. Many comedians have acted as heroes in the past and the most recent one is Srinivas Reddy who came up with Jayammu Nischayammu ra and scored a decent hit. Lets see if Saptagiri can entertain audience with his comedy timing in Saptagiri Express.

 

Story:

Saptagiri (Saptagiri) has an ambition to become an actor, but his constable father wants to see him as a police officer. However he gives up on his acting dreams as his father gets killed on duty. Saptagiri gets the constable job of his father and he finds it difficult to fit in the job.
Later on, he gets to know about the secret behind his father’s death and wants to take revenge against the people who are responsible for it.

Performances:

Saptagiri has done a good job with his comedy timing which he is best at, apart from few unnecessary elements in the script he owns the film entirely. Roshini has done a decent job as the female lead. Posani Krishna Murali is his usual self as the evil policeman. Shakalaka Shankar with his Srikakulam dialect provides ample support to Saptagiri throughout the film. Ali made a cameo appearance and Sayaji Shinde played a supporting role.

Technicalities:

Director Arun Pawar has failed to come up with a good script which has let down the film. He has shown his direction capabilities but has to take care of Screenplay. Director seems to have given it up totally during the second half as the film completely goes off track and never tries to redeem itself at any point of time.

Bulganin’s music is ordinary, none of the songs are catchy. Cinematography is good, production values are commendable. Editing should have been more taken care of as some of the scenes were in no way linked to each other.

Pros:

Comedy in few scenes

Cons:

Story

Screenplay

Second Half

Telugu Daily Rating: 2.5 Stars (2.5 / 5)
