Atagallu has been looking for a release date for quite some time now. After fighting hard, it made itself available to the audience today. Read on to see how the film turns out to be.

Story:
The film is based between the tug of war between two principal characters played by Jagapathi Babu and Nara Rohit. Jagapathi Babu is fighting the case of Nara Rohit who is arrested in the murder of his wife. The plot takes different turns and after a point of time, JB and Nara Rohit become dead against each other. The crux of the story is as to who comes on top at the end of the film.

Performances:
The hero of the film is Jagapathi Babu who takes the center stage and brings some depth to the proceedings with his class act. JB as a lawyer is very good and his challenge game with Rohit is nicely edited on screen. 

Nara Rohit is least interested in the film as he sleepwalks the role. Not once does he shows interest in the plot and just acts what his director says him to do. Darshana as the heroine is very neat but did not have much to perform in the film except for emotional scenes. 

Technicalities:
The film is so old that it reminds you of your grandmother right away. The film has complete B grade production values with horrible camera work. Director Murali leaves no stone unturned to torture the audience with his silly direction. 

Every twist in the plot does not create any interest and you can know what is going on in the scene exactly by any 10-year-old kid. That bad is the screenplay of the film which has no direction. Adding to this is Sai Karthick the music director who is seen in a special song making you hide under the seats with his cheap act.

What Clicks:
Jagapathi Babu

What Flops:
Nara Rohit
Outdated screenplay
Lack of  Interesting twists

Overall Analysis:
Many of us wonder as to why Nara Rohit approves of so many films one after the other. The reason is that Rohit's idea of selecting the plot is good but it is his director who kills his films. Same happens with Atagallu as the film is insipid and has no engaging moments which a basic murder mystery should have. This film is not even fit to watch on television as it that boring.
