Power Review


Power kick starts at Kolkata high court where Ganguly Bhai [Sampath Raj] plans to escape from police Custody. ACP Baldev [Ravi Teja] makes a powerful entry. After a while, Home Minister BK Roy resigns as he failed to catch Ganguly bhai. Meanwhile, Animuthyam [Brahmanandam] make trials to arrest Feroz bhai but gets captured by the goons. Ravi Teja enters as Thirupathi with bearded look in Hyderabad and fights the villains off and gets back to Kolkata as ACP Baldev. Is Baldev and Thirupathi one and the same? How he unturns his true colours and resolves all the corruption web around him marks the crux of Power.


Ravi Teja is at his usual best with high energy. He has delivered a laudable performance in both the roles. His looks, especially bearded and role as Police officer take us to his earlier films Vikramarkudu and Sindhooram for a while.

Hansika and Regina Cassandra are glamorous and worth watching on screen. Their chemistry with Ravi Teja worked big time.

Brahmanandam, Saptagiri have done good job among others.

Technical Analysis:

Bobby aka K Ravindra made a commendable debut as director. Interesting screenplay and good recital with right mix of entertainment, action and glamour. But failed to maintain the pace.

SS Thaman's background is passable, but songs played spoil sport. Choreography is normal, though stars looked hot. Notanki song is effective among others.

Cinematography is good. Chase scenes, Old City fight sequence and Brahmanandam escape scene are well captured.

Editing could have been crisper. More violence and romantic portions that could be trimmed a little bit.


Power starts with a powerful entry by Ravi Teja. First half is entertaining with one liners, comedy sequences by Brahmanandam and Saptagiri. Interval bang is big asset. Comparatively, second half is okay - flash back, heavy sentiment, weak climax. But the later half is balanced with hot songs.
