Not just story & screenplay, One can't find any freshness in the way Raviteja's characterization was dealt. Such roles were tailor made for Massraja and he offers what fans expect from him. His look is better than 'Kick 2' but losing excess weight made his look odd in few scenes. There is nothing to complain about his energy levels though.Both Tamanna and Rashi Khanna don't have much to do in terms of acting but they made their presence felt with skin show. While Tamanna excelled in 'Choopulatho Deepala' song, Rashi offers visual feast by donning a bikini.Boman Irani, an actor with immense talent, was wasted. 30 Years Pruthvi rocked as Future Star Siddappa and the Viswaroopam scene was fabulous. Posani is equally impressive. Brahmi wasn't affective as Amala Paul. Rao Ramesh, Shayaji Shinde, Nagineedu, Tanikella Bharani and Others have done justice to their roles.
The story of Bengal Tiger is as thin as half a wafer and is made of such non-happening events that you would wonder how all these came to be stitched up together into an even more ho-hum script. As the interval comes you keep your fingers crossed and desire against desire that things will get better, but then Sampath Nandi takes us on a nose dive with some irksome sequences inspired from Kandireega, Don Seenu, Attarintiki Daredi, Anjanelu, Adurs, Arjun, Racha..etc. As Bengal Tiger heads towards the climax, the film maker brings in some forced comedy and dragged fight sequences. This disjoint sequences gradually gives way to annoyance and at times even anguish as goofiness is celebrated to the core.
Bengal Tiger claims to offer good masala entertainment with romance, revenge and drama to its viewers and when it fails to score on all of these one realized that the miscues that it makes entirely need to be credited to its flawed and inspired script.The question remains as to what it is that prompted a director like Sampath Nandi to attempt a slapdash rehash of Racha. Is there a tremendous paucity of plot-lines in Telugu that an upcoming director chooses to return to a once success formula that in itself was a sort of inspired.
The same old format 'Entertaining First Half - Interval Twist - Flashback in Second Half - Revenge in Climax' has been used in the case of 'Bengal Tiger'. One gets the feeling, Its a mixture of 'Don Seenu' & 'Racha' after watching few scenes. There is nothing noteworthy in the story and even the interval twist wasn't mind blowing either. The major asset for the movie is the comedy episodes in the First Half which is entertaining and racy. Raviteja's combination scenes with Pruthvi as Future Star and Posani as Celebrity Sastri were hilarious.
Not having good comic relief in the Second Half could be a drawback. Even Brahmanandam's role as Amala Paul didn't work. Viewers find Hero's Flashback, The scene were he conspires to book Villains and Climax look routine. Glamour show of Tamanna and Rashi Khanna is the only saviour in the Second Half. Ample mass masala elements could make few sections of audience embrace 'Bengal Tiger'.
