Saaho Review – A messy hodgepodge action drama

Saaho Review

Telugu360 Rating 2/5

The much awaited Indian film of the year, Saaho which features Prabhas, Shraddha Kapoor and Neil Nithin Mukesh is all set for a grand opening worldwide amid huge expectations. Touted as the costliest action film made on a whopping budget of 300 Crores, Saaho has been the talk of the town ever since the spectacular trailers and riveting posters evoked a stirring response from audience.

Can Saaho live up to the heavy expectations and cement Prabhas’ position as a pan-India star ? Let’s find out with our review.

Story :

Underworld don Roy ( Jackie Shroff ) and his rival Devraj ( Chunkey Pandey ) live in a fictious city of Waaji, where the movie is based. The Ageing don Roy hides whereabouts of his son to protect from rivals. Back in India , a 2,000 crore robbery is under investigation by undercover officer Ashok Chakravarthy ( Prabhas ). There is a thief Jai ( Neil Nitin Mukesh ) whom Ashok & Amrita ( Shraddha Kapoor ) chase.

At some point , the robbery is linked to the waaji city dons. Rest of the story is unfolding of twisted identity events

Analysis :

A Grandiose takeoff in Waaji City greets Saaho audience. After that introduction , a parallel story at India begins on dull note. Right from the mighty hero Prabhas’s lukewarm entry scene , by one hour into the movie ..one can smell the things are not in right place. An undercover cop investigating a high profile case gives ample scope to thrills and excitement but sadly except the good twist at interval , first half of the film is pretty much flat. Prabhas’ styling , looks are not taken care adequately. ‘ Ye chota nuvvunna ‘ song visuals are good , ‘ Psycho Saiyaan ‘ song is disappointing on screen.

Second half moves at quicker pace for 15 minutes. Lead sequence to ‘ Bad Boys ‘ song , The ‘ Bad Boys ‘ song picturisation are very good. Afterwards , it is difficult to decipher what’s going on in the second half with confusing screenplay. None of the action scenes or graphics scenes make any impact until the much talked about Dubai action block. That 20 minutes action block , shot in Dubai , came out OK. Few poor VFX shots can’t go unnoticed though. Then one more layer in the story , about ‘Karana village’ begins. Then flashback has been revealed in bits n pieces with Climax being penultimate point of the story.

On technical front , Ghibran background stands out . UV Creations production values are lavish but budget wouldn’t be 300 Crores as touted. The output seems like a 150C or less film with its tacky VFX work in some scenes. Stunt coordinators have done commendable job but you don’t get to appreciate any of those due to hurried screenplay.

The director Sujeeth who envisioned this film at mammoth scale , couldn’t setup not even a decent backup in form of story or screenplay. He completely missed out utilizing Prabhas’s larger than life image. Hero Characterization is something the director has forgot.

Dialogues are unimpressive throughout the film , audience have no single dialogue to remember after exiting the theatre.

Performances by lead actors Prabhas , shraddha kapoor and Neil Nitin Mukesh are Okay. As said earlier , lack of proper characterization takes the toll. Huge number of other actors are wasted as well.

Positives :

  • Interval Twist
  • Pre-Climax Action Block
  • Two Songs

Negatives :

  • Boring , flat narration
  • Cliched story with confusing screenplay
  • Prabhas Image under utilized
  • The love track is miserable
  • Hodgepodge screenplay

Verdict :

‘ Saaho ‘ is a disappointing film at many levels. A supposedly high octane action thriller has gone wrong , suffered badly by a confusing screenplay. Young director Sujeeth has done gross injustice to Prabhas , his sky high image.

Yet to digest what we have seen on-screen this evening.

Here’s what Prabhas does a day before his film releases

0

“Bahubali” superstar Prabhas says he tries to sleep a lot the day before a new movie hits the screens.

The Telugu actor revealed this while promoting his forthcoming film “Saaho” on the comic show “The Kapil Sharma Show”. Show host and comedian Kapil Sharma was curious to know about rumour that Prabhas prefers sleeping the day before his film’s release.

“Yes, I try to sleep a lot, but I couldn’t sleep well because of tension and stress. The rumour is almost right,” said Prabhas.

Kapil then asked Prabhas’ “Saaho” co-star Shraddha Kapoor if the rumour was true that she suffers from an indigestion issue the day before release.

“Yes, this is true,” Shraddha quipped.

“Saaho”, a Sujeeth directorial, is scheduled to release in Hindi, Telugu and Tamil on August 30.

I am excited but nervous for ‘Saaho’: Shraddha Kapoor

0

Bollywood actress Shraddha Kapoor is gearing up for the release of the multilingual “Saaho”. The actress says that she is interested in experimenting with her roles, and that box-office number can never stop her from following her heart.

“Whether it worked at the box office or not, I am always offered different roles that are strong and well edged-out. As an actor I am always looking for something different, looking for a new challenge. I know that not all my films have worked wonders at the box-office, but that has not stopped me from experimenting,” Shraddha told IANS.

The actress, who made her debut with “Teen Patti” in 2010, has left a mark with roles is a singer in “Aashiqui 2”, a Kashmiri girl in “Haider”, a dancer in “ABCD 2”, and a real-life gangster in “Haseena Parkar”, among other roles. She has the commercial biggie “Saaho” coming up, besides “Chhichhore”.

Some of her past films such as “Ok Jaanu”, “Haseena Parkar” and “Batti Gul Meter Chalu” fared below expectations, but Shraddha’s confidence remains unfazed.

“The fate of a film is not in my hand, so numbers should not stop me from experimenting. When an actor tried avoiding formula in order to experiment, she tends to stumble. However, every time I introspect I feel it is better to go for a script that I like but is risky, than a safe script that I may do half-heartedly,” said the daughter of veteran actor Shakti Kapoor.

Shraddha, however, concedes, she is not altogether oblivious to the cold box-office response to some of her films. “Those box-office results did make me sit down and introspect. I started looking out for a better understanding of how to engage and entertain the audience, which is constantly changing,” she said.

In “Saaho”, directed by Sujeeth, Shraddha will be seen alongside Prabhas, Jackie Shroff, Neil Nitin Mukesh, Mahesh Manjerekar, Murli Sharma, and Chunkey Pandey among others.

The film has been shot with IMAX cameras and, given its rumoured budget of Rs 350 crore, Shraddha admits she is stressed out about how “Saaho might fare at the box-office.

“This is the first time I have worked in such a big-budget film so I am excited but nervous as well. People have huge expectations ever since the trailer was released, so I am stressed now,” said the actress.

“Saaho” opens on August 30.

Prabhas has the most amazing heart: Shraddha

0

Actress Shraddha Kapoor, who plays the female lead in the upcoming action-thriller “Saaho”, says her co-actor Prabhas is a huge superstar but has the most amazing heart.

“Prabhas is a huge superstar but he has the most amazing heart. I and my team were in awe of that. We had a blast,” Shraddha said.

Talking about her experience of shooting in Hyderabad, the actress said: “I will not be able to describe the experience in words. Actually, the whole team welcomed me as a part of their family. We shot this film within two years.

“In these two years, Hyderabad actually became my second home. I would look forward to going to the set every day. I would love to go there again and again because of the amount of love that I have received from them. They have been so kind to me. I felt so much at home there.”

Shraddha has back to back releases with “Saaho” hitting the theatres on August 30, and her next, “Chhichhore”, where she stars alongside Sushant Singh Rajput, releasing on September 6.

The actress sounded very happy about this, as she said: “The two movies are so different from each other and I feel lucky that I got to be a part of both.”

Even though it feels nice to see two films releasing back to back, shooting for three films at the same time was not so easy for Shraddha, the third film being “Street Dancer 3D”, where she has been paired opposite Varun Dhawan.

“I only want to say that my body is paining a lot. It has been a physically intense year for me. Street Dancer will release next year, even though we have finished shooting. I feel like relaxing a little but now the promotions (for ‘Saaho’) have started.”

Shraddha added that she is excited because she got to be a part of such amazing movies.

“‘Saaho’ is my first multi-lingual film. It is a very big thing for me to be a part of this film. I am eagerly waiting for World Saaho Day, which is on the 30th.”

“Saaho” has been directed by Sujeeth and also stars Jackie Shroff and Neil Nitin Mukesh in key roles. The film releases on August 30.
