++ Mass Maharaja is the undoubted strength of the movie Kick..He is lean with physique, dances better, and he is a live wire in performance..though looked little dull..his energetic punches, performances, & impeccable comic timing are fantastic…Terrific screen presence laced with good emotions & delivery of lines show that he shoulders the whole movie …”Mass Raja, Ravi Teja”
++ Rakul looks beautiful as Chaitra ..both as village belle &modern girl she does justice to role, which is main point of the movie turn..crackling chemistry with Mass maharajah in songs & scenes
++ Brahmi keeps the whole first half engaged with his one liners & buffoon antics( drum beats in his head!!) ..he is too good with Ravi teja as both are excellent in comedy
++ Superb cast with Tanikala bharani, Ravi Kishan, and few excel in movie
++ Thaman has given some thumping background which elevates mass scenes to bigger level..couple of songs ” Mummy “, “Kick” are good to ears &eyes
++ Manoj Paramahamsa last seen in Race gurram, is back with some extra ordinary photography for the commercial movie..the eagle eye shots of the palace, the dusty Bihar village,the foreign locations are completely catchy with different color tones..Marvelous
++ first half is good with good comedy,songs & some mass scenes…few emotional scenes in second half are good..eg.. the sparrow , & villagers sacrifice episode
++ Good Technical & rich production values...
– Movie though high with emotions & actions scenes, it levitra price uk uae lacks the quality of Kick movie comedy & entertainment values..
– Length of the movie where the story is not new is also big drawback (2 hrs 50min)
– There are no enough twist & turns to keep the audience entertained..not alone the twist..script moves with predictable pace & scenes…we may have similar or already seen sequences , but lacks some thing which doesn’t stay in hearts
– Editing is just fair could have been given cuts easily in the post interval scenes
– Lot of movies come across in terms of story..like Kuruvi(tamil),Chatrapathi, Vikramarkudu etc..of saving village people
– Over the top stunts though shot nicely..gets boring due to rope & fly kicks.…
Kick 2 has crossed expectations only to certain extent & doesn’t fulfill the Kick movie content…but can watch once if you enjoy masala movies….or say time pass movies
Verdict:4.5/10 ( 1 for Ravi Teja, 1 for DOP, 1 for Music, 1 for comedy & few mass scenes, .5 for Rakul & cast)
