++ What a change over !!!!From Alluring romantic lover to energetic performer to a oora mass action star...Bulked up his body, ease with emotion , daring in action sequences, Fabulous dance moves ( Watch Block buster & title song!!!!) bunny steals...Hard work in action blocks, his temperament in scenes with Aadhi, trademark romance & usual dialogue delivery scenes are treat to watch..good chemistry with Catherine Tresa…Allu Arjun Succeeds great in transformation as Massy hero…
++ Rakul looks glamorous &there for songs..nothing else, But Catherine Tresa no-need character has more screen space than Rakul..She acts fine, but looks gorgeous in songs & saris..Plumy ,Fluffy yet glamorous..
++ Aadhi has antagonist looks fresh,stylish & has great screen presence let down by cliche characterization.. Sreekanth,Jeyaprakash, Brahmi, Saikumar does neat job.
++ Thaman musical score is instant hit with songs “Blockbuster”, “Sarainodu” are foot tapping, ” ” you are my MLA” is untried melody of his stature.. catchy!!!..background score is apt with tag OORA mass, BGM elevates heroism &stunts to different level
++ Photography of Rishi punjab is good & perfect for commercial flick but fantastic in fight sequences & Telusa song..
++ Action blocks by Ram brothers is big plus which keeps the audience hooked to the seats ..It does has some goose bumps moments..the first fight, the interval block & the climax are deadly…
++ Dance choreography is at the best with best dancer in the hand, whistles & sounds gonna surround theater..Blockbuster, Sarainodu songs dance are just foot loose!!
++ Boyapthi succeeds in projecting Allu as Oora action star with few good scenes &emotional climax ,not to forget his style of actions..
– Outdated story & the way it was presented with a ordinary screenplay is big let down..no twist or turns and the proceedings some time make us restless…if screenplay could have tighten, then it would have been a another Legend
– Comedy limps &handicapped though we had Brahmi..it had few but lacked the ultimate laugh like Race Gurram or even S/o of Satyamurthy
– Songs are good but the placement & picturisation of the songs could have been better..Anjali for Blockbuster song is wrong choice!!!
– No genuine reason for few characterization like, why did he came out of military, sudden change of mind in terms of love from Catherine to Rakul etc… left untold
– Movie lacks logic & interesting moments of cat &mouse game
Sarainodu is regular commercial masala flick but it has been a good watch due to charismatic Allu Arjun, Oora mass action blocks, Catherine-Rakul Glam & some catchy tunes with few good sequences
Verdict: 5/10 ( 1 for Allu Arjun, 1 for stunts , 1 for Thaman songs&BGM, 1 for photography, .5 Glam girls& .5 dance)
Movie canvas punch : Sarainodu…action- mass,writing -mess
