Lakshya Movie Review

Telugu360 Rating : 2.5/5

Story :Parthu ( Naga Shaurya ) is a rookie Archery player who upsets a national champion in his debut year. Impressed by his skills, Indian Olympics association requests him to perform in qualifiers. Meanwhile, the disgruntled ex-national champion Rahul traps Parthu into sedative addiction. Rahul also attacks Parthu, permanently damages the archer’s right palm. Rest of the film is about how Parthu fight backs in his career and life.


To give a fresh backdrop to beaten to death sports subject, Lakshya picks up Archery game. The take off of the film is smooth and takes us straight into the action. Parthu’s rise as a national champion is done in initial act, the disgruntled rival sportsman’s revenge on Parthu is the conflict point. Grand father( Sachinkhedekar) – Parthu thread is a sentimental one, after the grandfather’s demise Parthu is sheltered by Jagapathi Babu. This particular artificial thread is the one takes down the movie graph. After JagapathiBabu’s motivational stint, Parthu comes back to archery arena and beats world champions. There is one duet ‘ Sayasayaa ‘ is good.

Naga Shaurya has put lot of effort to play a sportsman role. His six pack is impressive physical makeover. Heroine Ketika Sharma looks good, acted adequate to the role. Director Dheerendra appears to be done some research on the Sport. The casting of the film is good. Villain and artists are picked to suit sports theme. The production values are good


    A different sport – Archery theme
    Production Values


    Highly predictable plot
    Boring conflict point
    Too cinematic

Verdict:‘Lakshya’ is a predictable sports drama which has few good moments. First half of the film showcases the rise of a rookie player, and in second half his struggle is boring which ends with a cinematic climax.Overall, the sports theme movie lovers can give it a try at leisure time.
