Stylish Star, Allu Arjun who has created his own fan base with his dances and fights apart of the Mega family has teamed up with debutant director Vakkantham Vamsi, who is popular as the most successful writer for Naa Peru Surya. Amid huge expectations, Naa Peru Surya has released simultaneously in both Telugu and Tamil. Let’s see, whether NPS has met the expectations or not.
Surya(Allu Arjun) is an angry military officer. Being a military officer, one can easily predict the consequences Mr.Surya will face from the Senior Officials. He who was suspended from the army for killing a terrorist in the custody is given an exemption to take back into the army with a condition of getting a signature from the popular psychiatrist, Ramakrishnam Raju(Arjun). Shockingly, there is a relation between Surya and Ramakrishnam Raju. What is that relation? Will Surya get the signature from Ramakrishnam Raju? Will he join the army finally? To know answers to all these questions, You’ve to watch the movie.
As the furious military officer, Allu Arjun has literally lived in the role of Surya. With his intense performance, he captivates the audience. And there is no need to tell specifically about Stylish Star’s dances and fights. He is as usual rocked. The female lead of NPS, Anu Emmanuel is beautiful and like every Star film, her role is limited to glamour only. Despite both Allu Arjun and Anu Emmanuel looks adorable, the love track between them is pale. There is no proper writing for Sarath Kumar’s role in the film which looks ordinary. Action King Arjun has done the subtle performance in the role of Psychiatrist, Ramakrishnam Raju. The other popular actors like Rao Ramesh, Boman Irani, and Nadiya are limited to few scenes and justified with their performance. In NPS, Sai Kumar’s role and his performance in the second half are one of the highlights.
Being a Star Writer, Vakkantham Vamsi who has given most successful stories has unable to come out with a powerful story for his debut film. Maybe he got a powerful story, but unable to execute it impactful like NPS first impact. It would be nice if Vakkantham Vamsi concentrates on the narration rather the elevation of Allu Arjun. The Cinematography is at top notch. The music of Bollywood duo Vishal and Shekar is pretty good, especially the background score in the sequence when the lead role getting furious. The production values are good and editing of NPS could have been better.
Finally, to tell, Naa Peru Surya is the story to revolve around the characterization of Surya and how he controlled his anger for the sake of the nation. Despite the first half of the film is intense, it fails to keep up the same momentum in the second half due to its dragged plot. The film became regular post it shifts from military backdrop to family, which lacks emotional connection. In the midst there are some scenes puts many questions in the mind of the audience why the director have shot those scenes and including in the film. Besides, the climax is vapid. In NPS, Allu Arjun performance, grandeur, and the action sequences are the only luring factors.
Punchline: Naa Peru Surya unable to create impact.
