Review: After a gap of one year, Nag will be seen in a full-length role in ‘Officer’ and Varma seems to have played it safe by choosing his favorite underworld crime story. Titled as Officer, the film is set in the backdrop of Mumbai and Nagarjuna will be seen as SIT officer who investigates the murder of a police officer. The monotonous trailers and teasers couldn’t excite the audience, but the team is very confident that the film will keep the audience hooked on with a gripping narration.
Analysis: Ram Gopal Varma has claimed that Officer is based on the life of IAS offier KM Prasanna. The movie deals with a routine story, but a racy narration, deadly twists and raw action keep you engrossed in the film. However, the some predictabe scenes and slow paced narration in parts are the drawbacks of the movie, say the audience.
Performances: Akkineni Nagarjuna has delivered wonderful performance, which is the highlight of the movie. Myra Sareen has got a good scope for acting and she has done justice to her role. Baby Kaavya, Feroz Abbasi, Sayaji Shinde, Ajay, Priyadarshi Pullikonda and Rajendra Prasad have done a good job, says the audience.
Bottom Line: On the whole, Officer is a good script gone the wrong kind of a film. RGV’s story idea is interesting but his narration is not that exciting. Weak villain, not so engaging hero-villain moments and lack of drama hamper the flow of the film. This is not a disaster kind of a film from RGV but the proceedings are not that exciting too. Except for Nag’s sincere performance, this film has nothing new to offer. All those who want to see Nag in an aggressive avatar after a long time can give this film a shot but the rest can look for something else more promising.
