Nagarjuna’s ‘Wild Dog’ Movie Review

Wild Dog Movie Review

Wild Dog Movie Review

Telugu360 Rating: 2.75/5

King Nagarjuna needs a hit as he is surrounded by a series of flops. The actor loved the concept of Wild Dog and gave his immediate nod. Talented writer Solomon is returning back to direction after a while with Wild Dog. Nagarjuna, Dia Mirza, Atul Kulkarni. Saiyami Kher, Ali Reza played the lead roles in this action entertainer that is all about the ISI attacks on Pune and Hyderabad. Niranjan Reddy’s Matinee Entertainments are the producers. Wild Dog is releasing today and here is the complete review of Wild Dog:

Story:

Wild Dog is the story of Vijay Varma (Nagarjuna) who is a ruthless cop and leads NIA Special Team. He gets shattered with the demise of his daughter in a bomb blast in Hyderabad. After staying away from NIA for years, he gets a call from the Indian government to lead the team on a mission to nab the masterminds in the blast’s case. Vijay Varma who is popularly called Wild Dog leads the team to catch Khalid, the key accused in the case. Watch Wild Dog to know about their special mission which makes Vijay Varma and his team proud.

Analysis:

After the arrival of the coronavirus pandemic, the Indian and Telugu audience watched hundreds of shows, web films on terrorism and action. Wild Dog has nothing new and interesting to offer right from the plot to the narration. Wild Dog is neither racy nor completely dull. It has some good moments but the narration is never gripping. Nagarjuna shines as Vijay Varma but this alone cannot drive the film. The first half of Wild Dog is ok to watch but the audience will have their own complaints. Some of the episodes are silly.

The process of investigation looks outdated and it has nothing new. With many modern techniques being adapted, the team relies on a sketch artist to find the face of the criminal and the hunt to find the name of the main accused is so long. The team of NIA are just a step away from nabbing Khalid but he misses without any trace most of the time. This will surely disappoint the audience. Team Wild Dog finally lands in Nepal and those episodes too are not worth watching. The climax portions too are so simple and remind us about several Bollywood films.

Performances:

Nagarjuna shines in the role of Vijay Varma who plays a honest NIA cop in the film. The role looks perfect for his age and he looks natural with a scar and grey hair. Dia Mirza has couple of scenes as Vijay Varma’s wife. Atul Kulkarni gets a tailor made role as a cop who struggles to convince the government against the odds. Saiyami Kher gets a challenging role and she a full length role in the second half of Wild Dog. Ali Reza and the team of Wild Dog did their part well. All the other actors are good and did well.

Wild Dog has a simple plot and it is inspired by several crime thrillers. The screenplay should have been gripping and more intense. The dialogues are good. Thaman delivers an impressive background score and the cinematography work is apt. The production values should have been better. Solomon takes Wild Dog on a serious note but the second half of Wild Dog has enough flaws. On the whole, Wild Dog will have a limited appeal.

Verdict:

Wild Dog is a film that will have a limited appeal because of several such attempts on digital platforms in the recent times. Nagarjuna and his team are good but the second half of Wild Dog has its own flaws.

“I am the only known face on the team and the rest of the team is relatively new. Even the director is also new. So, I decided to shoulder the responsibility of the promotions. I was supposed to begin the second schedule of Praveen Sattaru’s film but I am here promoting this movie. I will join them on April 7th,” Nagarjuna added.

“When I first heard the script, I told Solomon to make it as authentic as possible. He did a lot of research for 3-4 months. He even met a Major who participated in the Surgical Strikes. He is on the set to guide us to keep the proceedings as authentic as possible,” he narrated the team’s efforts to make Wild Dog close to reality.

Saiyami Kher said, “Wild Dog is extremely special film for me as I got an opportunity to work with Nagarjuna and I go to do so much action. It’s a very exciting and thrilling film.” Producer Niranjan Reddy made it clear that Wild Dog is not an experimental film adding only Nagarjuna could accept such films.

Director Ashishor Solomon stated that an article in a newspaper is the inspiration behind the film’s story. “In 17 bomb blasts in India from 2007 to 2013, hundreds have died. The case is handed over to NIA. A group of 5 NIA officers risked their lives and did this deadly undercover operation.”

Nagarjuna said, “I liked the character ACP Vijay Varma which is the reason why I did Wild Dog. He is fearless and I too am fearless like him. I got call from Niranjan Reddy during covid times to resume shoot and it’s a biggest from him. Wild Dog is not an experimental film. It’s a pucca commercial film. Thaman lifted the film up with his music.”
