Saaho starring Prabhas and Shraddha Kapoor has hit the theaters today. It’s a multilingual film simultaneously made in Telugu, Hindi, Tamil, and Malayalam. Upon its release, the Sahoo movie has got a mixed bag of reviews and ratings from both the audience and the critics. It seems that the flick failed to meet their hopes. (Check: Saaho 1st Day Collection.)

Directed by Sujeeth, Saaho is a thriller movie for which the director has himself written the story, screenplay, as well as the dialogues. Vamsi Krishna Reddy, Pramod Uppalapati and Bhushan Kumar have produced the film under the UV Creations and T-Series banners. It is of 2:30 hours in run-time with a U/A certificate from the censor board.

Talking about the story, Saaho revolves around an undercover officer Ashok Chakravarthy (Prabhas) for an investigation of a 2000 cr robbery case. Along with Ashok, Amrita (Shraddha) is also involved in the case. They are chasing thief Jai (Neil Nitin Mukesh). The robbery is linked to Waaji City which houses heavily armed underworld don Roy (Jackie Shroff) and his rival Devraj (Chunkey Pandey). The crux of the story is how Ashok uses an arsenal of weapons to battle the gang.


Saaho Movie Review and Rating

Coming to the analysis of the movie, Saaho starts on a great note, but its parallel story of what happens in India makes it dull. The first half is almost flat, but forms a good twist towards the interval. However, the second half brings confusing screenplay that may bore some audience to their core. The climax is good as it turns to be a little saving grace. Overall, the director seems to have failed to bring up the high budget film.

As far as the star performances are concerned, Prabhas has done his job very well by delivering a stunning performance. It is one of the major highlights of the film. Shraddha has also delivered good performance and her chemistry with the hero is being appreciated. Other actors including Neil, Jackie, Vennela Kishore, Murali Sharma, Arun Vijay, Prakash Belavadi, Evelyn Sharma, Lal, Chunky, Mandira, Mahesh Manjrekar, and Tinnu Anand have done justice to the roles offered as per the audience.

Coming to the technical values, Saaho has been produced with brilliant production values. Ghibran has provided amazing background score. Likewise R Madhi’s visuals, amazing choreography of acting and chase sequences, beautiful art direction, locales, and VFX works have been amazing throughout the movie as told by the viewers.

#Saaho is a cinematic marvel which has the style as well as the substance.The VFX & Action Stunts is something which has not been watched on Indian screens ever. At the BO, it is a sure shot blockbuster and will set new benchmarks in the days to come. Highly recommended! ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Saaho Critics Review

  1. The Times Of India: “Overall, ‘Saaho’ attempts at being a potboiler that fires in all directions to entertain the audience. There are so many twists and turns that it leaves you more exhausted than excited.”Rating: 2.5 stars
  2. The Indian Express: “Everything a thriller needs is in here. You settle down to a non-stop, breathless, firing-from-all-cylinders ride. But Saaho turns out to be a damp squib.”Rating: 1.5 stars
  3. First Post: “By the time we get to know who Saaho is and why he has taken that route, it is too little too late. The action set pieces are just a mere distraction. The drama is non-existent. All we get is a black box which we wish had never opened. Because the anticipation to watch Saaho was more worth the effort than the film itself. A big thumbs down.”Rating: 2 stars
  4. Taran Adarsh: #OneWordReview…
    #Saaho: UNBEARABLE.
    Rating: ⭐️½
    A colossal waste of talent, big money and opportunity… Weak story, confusing screenplay and amateur direction. 👎👎👎
