Saakshyam - Story
Vishwa (Bellamkonda Sai Sreenivas) is a gaming professional who lives abroad. He happens to meet Soundarya (Pooja Hegde) who is very well versed in all ancient scriptures and teaches it in a foreign location. He falls for her and tries to woo her with his many tactics to impress her. He follows her to India and enters the zone of his family and their deaths. They are murdered ruthlessly by the goons led by Munuswamy (Jagapathi Babu) and his brothers (Ravi kishan and Ashutosh Rana). How nature helped Vishwa seek his vengeance is rest of the story.
Saakshyam - Star Performance
Bellamkonda Sai Sreenivas is good as Vishwa, a gaming professional. He did a great work in action sequences and he tried to present himself in a new way. Pooja Hegde is gorgeous as usual and she is well in her role as Soundarya Lahari, who is well versed with traditional values and scripts. Sarath Kumar and Meena are nice. Jagapathi Babu is one actor we have, who never disappoint audience with his performance. Krishna Bhagavan is good as a healer. Ashutosh Rana and Ravi Kishan are superb as brothers of Jagapathi Babu. Vennela Kishore, Brahmaji and Jhansee are humorous.
Saakshyam - Technical Team
Even though Harshvardhan Rameshwar’s music is disappointing, his background score is riveting as he makes the proceedings quite gripping with his score during the mass elements. The production design of the film and camera work are top notch. The way New York and other locations of Dubai are showcased looks super rich on screen. Dialogues are good and so were the lyrics by Anantha Sreeram. Coming to the director Sriwas, he has done a decent job with the film. He has chosen a revenge drama and given it an interesting twist by adding some very good elements like unique fights and emotions. Had he taken care of the love track and got a better music album things would have been even better. Apart from this, Sriwas has showcased Bellamkonda in a good and aggressive manner.
Saakshyam - Analysis
On the whole, Saakshyam is a regular action entertainer with an interesting theme. As long as the superb fights and mass elements take center stage, things look good. But then, the boring songs, dull love track and unnecessary scenes in both the halves pull down the film. The mass audience will surely love the film as it has been packed with good episodes which will keep them entertained. But for those who are looking for something different, this film ends as just an average fare this week.
