Agnyaathavaasi Story Plot & Review:

PressKS Rating: 2.5/5

  • Release date: January 10, 2017
  • Starring: Pawan Kalyan, Keerthy Suresh, Anu Emmanuel
  • Director: Trivikram Srinivas
  • Producer: S. Radha Krishna
  • Music Director: Anirudh Ravichander
  • Cinematographer: V. Manikandan
  • Editor: Kotagiri Venkateswara Rao

Story Plot: As far as the story of ‘Agnathavaasi’ goes, it’s the revenge story a rich man’s son for his father’s murder. The story takes off with a rich man who has two options for everything. As a part of that, he has two wives too. When he gets killed, the second wife comes looking for the first wife and with the help of her stepson takes revenge.

The first half of the movie is just an average without any interesting storyline… Kushbhoo’s emotional dialogues in the interval bang are awesome. It seems like director Trivikram focused much on dialogues rather than a story. Songs are okay and some dialogues are good, comedy scenes are not up to the mark, comedy can be done even better.  So far, the movie is running at a low pace without any interesting story expects dialogues. Let us wait and see will their any twists and turns in the story to be unveiled in second or not!!

Second half starts with establishing Vinda’s flashback. He leaves his friend while establishing the business. Pawan Kalyan finally confirms his disguise and comes as soon of Vinda’s first wife for whom khushbu will be supportive. He carefully comes to office and takes charge. But his other partner’s son, Adi wants to become the CEO. The second half is better than the first half.

Powerstar Pawan Kalyan who played the character of Abhishikth Bhargav did a super job. He is in almost every frame in first half and he is good in emotional sequences and action sequences. Kushboo as Indrani is nice. She has given a nice performance in this role. Boman Irani as Vinda is perfect. Keerthy Suresh and Anu Emmanuel do not have noteworthy characters but they are good in their own way. Rao Ramesh and Murali Sharma are superb. Aadhi Pinisetty has done a fantastic job in his character. Vennela Kishore is humorous. The new villain Parag Tyagi is good. Tanikella Bharani, Srinivasa Reddy and all other actors did their best.

Keerthy Suresh and Anu Emanuel have nothing sort of roles. They do look stylish and glamorous though. Rao Ramesh and Murali Sharma are likable in their parts. Aadi has a terribly written character and an equally disastrous usage in action. Sampath in brief sections in encouraging. Khusboo is alright. Boman Irani is apt. Raghu Babu and Vennela Kishore handle comedy. There are still more characters but not on making a marked level.

Agnyaathavaasi has rich production elements, which make it a visual treat. Manikandan’s beautiful cinematography, Anirudh Ravichander’s songs and background score and stylish choreography of action and dance, costume designs and art direction are the main attractions on the technical front, say the viewers.

  • Aadi Pinishetty Acting
  • Anirudh Music

Agnyaathavaasi Minus Points

  • Anu emmanuel
  • Story Plot Little Lagged
  • too many subplots
  • director mark missing
  • Too much lag in the first half is huge minus

Verdict: First half of Agnyaathavaasi is not at all to the point. Really a boring one for Pawan Kalyan fans. The expectations put on the movie and the director is not reached. With a one-man show by Pawan Kalyan, some dialogues from Rao Ramesh is a plus. Trivikram writing felt during the interval bang, the lot depends on the second half. Agnyaathavaasi is a one-man show by Pawan Kalyan. It has a weak villain track and lack of emotional connection. On the flip side, it has high production values. Just don’t expect the film to be filled with the usual PSPK-Trivikram style punch dialogues though, you will be left disappointed! The film has a few humorous scenes and a fight scene right before the interval stands out. But watch this one just for the story and you won’t be disappointed.

Meanwhile, in theatres where Agnyaathavaasi is being screened, the Pawan Kalyan fans cheered for Pawan Kalyan and wished him all the best for his new film. Large cut-outs, banners, and flexes are a common sight in and around single screens in Andhra where the film has been released.At many places, fans displayed their love for Pawan Kalyan by garlanding his cut-outs. Inside the theatres, the fans are apparently going crazy the moment ‘Swagatham Krishna’ song comes on-screen.
