Macho man makes some mistakes too
Pegged as India’s biggest action thriller, ‘Saaho’, Prabhas’ next offering after the blockbuster ‘Baahubali’ series, has finally hit the screens amid much expectations.
Directed by Sujeeth, the film honours its promise– that it would serve you adrenaline-pumping action scenes– promptly. However, when you look for a solid story, sorry, you will be in for disappointment.
Sidharth Nandan Saaho (Prabhas) is an undercover police officer. And, he is an undercover criminal too. He has a shady past and is capable of doing extraordinary things.
Amritha Nair (Shraddha Kapoor) from the Mumbai crime branch is his colleague and Saaho falls for her. They are asked to investigate a big case involving high profile robberies.
The probe takes them to the imaginary city of Waaji. They realise that the case is connected to a multi-crore empire where a set of ruthless villains are ready to do anything.
The rest is all about how Saaho, with the help of Amritha, accomplishes the task(s) and emerges triumphant despite the multiple challenges posed at him.
For Prabhas, ‘Saaho’ is like the modern version of ‘Baahubali’. There are plenty of scenes to show his heroism and he does them with ease and elan. But, he should have focussed more on the script part.
Shraddha Kapoor’s character is not convincing, but she has given her best. There is a huge star cast including Jackie Shroff, Neil Neitin Mukesh and Arun Vijay. Among them, Chunkey Pandey stands out.
The film is so strong technically and crores have been spent on action scenes. On that front, it is a complete treat watching ‘Saaho’. While die-hard fans of Prabhas would sure enjoy ‘Saaho’, others might not due to its poor script.
