Sarrainodu - Story
Ganaa (Allu Arjun) is a dashing and gutsy young army man (of course voluntarily retired) who can't stand crime and injustice. He is the apple of the eye of his father Umapathi (Jaya Prakash), Babai Sripathi (Srikanth) and his entire family. While Umapathi fixes Ganaa's marriage with Jaanu (Rakul Preet), the daughter of his IAS friend Jaya Prakash (Saikumar), Ganaa tries to woo the local MLA Hansitha Reddy (Cathrerine Tresa).
Meanwhile, Chief Minister's son Vyra Dhanush (Aadi) is a powerful and ruthless leader who grabs fertile lands for his vested interests and this exactly what Jaya Prakash fights against. In a series of events, Jaanu's family is badly affected and Ganaa eventually locks horns with the badass Dhanush. What are the extremities of their war and how did Ganaa win it forms the rest of the story.
Sarrainodu - Star Performance
This otherwise vivacious and entertaining actor tried to fit into Boyapati's vase but somehow ended up with a poor balance. Keeping aside his exceptional dances, Bunny did his best to match the elevation and energy with a different body language and dialogue delivery in an attempt to impress the masses. Cathrine Tresa finally managed to bag some significant screen time. She was glamorous and delivered her part well.
Rakul Preet Singh the role of an emotional village belle and does a fine job. Though Rakul has limited screen presence, you won't miss her! We know it isn't as easy as pie to pull off a Boyapati mark adamant, ruthless villain that demands a killing presence, attitude and energy. Aadi delivers so effortfully .
Brahmanandam comedy and Vidyullekha Raman's track with Annapurnamma track work for the film especially in the first half. Unfortunately exceptional performer like Srikanth is underutilized in the film.The rest of the cast including Jayaprakash, Kalakeya Prabhakar, Pradeep Rawat, Rajeev Kanakala, LB Sriram, 30yrs industry Prithvi, Sumanand others play their part.
Sarrainodu - Technical Team
Thaman should be credited big time for his thumping music score. All the songs are a major bonus and his superb background score elevates the film big time. Dialogues are good and so was the art direction. Production values by Geetha Arts are superb as the film looks very rich in visuals.
Coming to the director Boyapati, he has done a superb job with the film. The way he has elevated both Bunny and Aadi looks quite refreshing. Even though he chooses a routine story line, the way he has targeted the mass audience and given them the necessary dose is superb. If he could have handled the last fifteen minutes of the film well, the end result could have been even better.
Sarrainodu - Analysis
On the whole, Sarrainodu is indeed a Oora mass entertainer. The film has many elements which will enthrall the fans and general audience big time. Bunny's stunning transformation, Aadi's screen presence and amazing action sequences are huge assets. If you are OK with too much violence and manage to bear the last fifteen minutes, you can happily watch Sarrainodu, which will end up as a typical masala entertainer this summer.
