Many say that RGV has lost his sheen and is making disappointing films. But Nagarjuna has given him another chance with the film Officer. Read on to see whether RGV has learnt a lesson or not.
The story of the film is as simple as it gets. A brave officer from Hyderabad played by Nagarjuna is appointed to deal with the case of a crooked cop who is doing illegal activities by cheating everyone. He even goes to the length of creating an underworld by staying in the department. How Nagarjuna manages to end his empire is the crux of the story.
Nagarnuna is a treat to watch in Officer. Even at this age he looks super fit and daring to go. His dialogue delivery and body language have been nicely used by RGV. The little girl who played Nag's daughter was okay. But the villain of the film is pathetic as he does not knows the basics and is a weak link of the film. Looks like RGV had budget constraints and that is the reason he brought a weak actor to play the most important part in the film.
RGV and Mumbai underworld go hand in hand and many a times he has made hit films keeping them as subjects. But for this film neither of them stand out as the cops are weak and the Mumbai underworld set up also does not feel right in the proceedings.
RGV needs to be blamed as he is not create that drama which is reminiscent in his movies. What we get to see is the outdated and boring confrontation between a routine hero and a old villain. His writing is weak and there are no scenes which bring back memories of his past films as the film is that bad in shape.
Lack of adequate drama
No one had any expectations on this film as RGV has lost his mojo long back. But there were some who felt that RGV will make things better as he has Nagarjuna at his helm. But sadly, RGV has disappointed those very few with his insipid execution which has not any clapworthy moments. Nagarjuna needs to urgently erase this film from his memory and move on to something better and the audience needs to completely avoid it seeing so that they can stop hating RGV more.
