Vijay’s Puli is one in every of the foremost hoped-for films within the recent past. Leading an huge line of superstars, this film is directed by Chimbu Devan and has hit the screens today. Let’s see however it seems to be.
The story is an fantasy kingdom referred to as Bhetala Desam that is ruled by an evil princes Yavvana Rani (Sridevi). She tortures everybody and occupies the nearby sixty villages.On the opposite hand, Manoharudu(Vijay) is a daring fighter from one of the villages that is ruled by Yavvana Rani. As time passes by, Manoharudu falls love with his childhood friend Wandala Malli(Shruthi Haasan). Things take an ugly turn when Malli gets kidnaped by some goons from Bhetala Desam.
An upset Manohardu takes things in hand and decides to enter the fantasy kingdom to save his lady love. Can he achieve success? What are the obstacles that he faces in his journey? That forms the rest of the story.
Major plus point of the film is that the visual grandeur. Puli has top notch visuals and reminds you of some Hollywood films instantly. Credit should goes the makers for trying something new and executing it on a large scale. Vijay is that the main keep and suits his role well.
Sridevi makes a placing comeback and appears menacing in her negative role. Her costumes, structure and also the method she has portrayed her character is prime notch. Shruthi Haasan appearance beautiful and oozes glamour success. Hansika is good in her role and provides the required visual percept. The graphics used in showcasing the lavish castles and locations provide the film an expensive look. Last half of the film is wherever the particular action begins. Sudeep will an excellent job in his negative role.
One of the major disappointments of Puli is the way Chimbu Devan executes the film. His narration lacks focus as he could not implement what was written on paper. The film is tediously long and takes forever to wrap up. First half has no basic story and moves on Vijay and Shruthi Haasan’s romantic track.Even though the film is visually good, there are certain scenes which lack clarity. The flashback showcased looks jaded and deviates the film big time. Songs are yet another huge drawback of the film. They come at regular intervals and spoil the mood of the film.
Puli is technically a strong film. The film is kind of grand and showcases some ne’er before scenes in Indian films. Special effects is awesome and showcases the fantasy kingdom in a very beautiful light-weight. Costumes used for Sridevi and her frame desires a special mention. As said earlier, Devi Sri Prasad’s music is pretty bad so is his background score.The visual effects that are used produce animals just like the tortoise and black tiger catch the imagination and will be likable by the children big time. Script goes haywire and confuses the audience when some extent. Director Chimbu Devan will a mediocre job and adds unnecessary scenes and complicates the plot.
On the complete, Puli is a film with sensible idea and bad execution. The boring narration and lack luster screenlay spoils the mood of the film success. Other than the impressive visuals and stellar performances by Vijay and Sridevi, this fantasy drama has nothing much to offer. All people who have an interest in multi-starrers and lavish film creating will offer this film a shot, others will take it simple.
