Prathinidhi Reviewby MyMazaa.com
Sreenu (Nara Rohit) is a common man and a responsible citizen who strictly abides rules. He kidnaps Sambashiva Rao (Kota Srinivasa Rao), state Chief Minister on a purpose and the news soon go viral in the country. Police Commissioner (Posani Krishna Murali) and Home Minister (Jayaprakash) with the team arrives to the place finally but gets shocked with kidnappers demands. Who is this Sreenu? What are his demands and why does he kidnap CM forms the crux.
Nara Rohit delivers a good performance and he carries the intensity of Parthinidhi role quite well. However, he could have worked more on mannerisms in the casual young guy role.
Shubra Aiyappa has a very limited role and she is okay. She looked good.
Kota Srinivasa Rao has a good screen time along with Nara Rohit and he is an asset for the movie. He is apt for the role as CM and as usual he rocked the timing. Jaya Prakash Reddy is commendable. Posani does a good job, Vishnuvardhan does his act well, Ranganath is impressive. Others were okay.
Sai Karthik’s musical scores are decent and Vaishnavo Janato is good. Background score is impressive and elevating. Cinematography is neat while editing is crisp. Dialogues by Anand Ravi are an asset for the film. Prashanth Mandava’s direction could have been better though as first timer his attempt is commendable. Sudha Cinemas and J Sambasiva Rao’s production values are just okay.
Prathinidhi is a political genre film and it has a promising concept. The first half of the film moves at good pace with impressive dialogues though there are few illogical scenes like CM who is provided Zplus security being kidnapped such easily and police department not tracking sooner. The second half is convincing but dragging at times. Few scenes could have made realistic though but the movie has some bold yet interesting scenes which are handled quite well by debutant director Prashanth Mandava. He is successful in keeping the curiosity factor till the end. The kidnapper’s demands in releasing CM are interesting and strikes the chords. Nara Rohit, Kota Srinivasa Rao delivers impressive performances. Prathinidhi is made with good intention and the filmmakers made an honest and appreciable attempt despite few flaws.
