Review: Telugu films are again in theatres as soon as once more. And first up is Satadev’s Thimmarusu. A remake of Kannada thriller Birbal Trilogy Case 1: Finding Vajramuni, this investigative crime drama stays largely true to the unique and impresses in components. While there’s suspense and intrigue because the movie progresses, a contrived screenplay makes it irritating at occasions.
Aravind, a cab driver and a police informer is killed in a ugly homicide. Vasu (Ankith), a younger pub worker finds the physique of the cab driver whereas returning dwelling from work and instantly alerts the police. To examine the scene, police officer Bhupati Raju (Ajay) walks in and with the assistance of lawyer Varaha Murthy (Ravi Babu), frames Vasu for the homicide. When Vasu comes out on parole after spending eight years in jail, Ram Chandra (Satya Dev), an upcoming lawyer, decides to take up his case. How he investigates the homicide whereas coping with this case and tries to unearth actual offender types the crux of the story.
The director, Sharan Koppisetty, tries to construct intrigue and suspense and there are some edge-of-the seat moments. Apart from a couple of minor modifications, the director sticks to the unique script and the movie largely works. The interval bang is likely one of the greatest scenes within the movie because it retains the viewers hooked and units you up properly for the second half. So is the pre-climax reveal that exhibits Ram Chandra’s true connection to the case.
The investigative components of the movie, nevertheless, are half-baked and unrealistic. The lack of tempo within the screenplay is a deterrent and the way in which a few of it’s proven is extremely exaggerated. There is an try and simplifying every little thing to the viewers by stating the plain at occasions, which makes it a tedious watch. The climax, too, is weak and hurried. There’s a love monitor in there, with Priyanka Jawalkar which felt misplaced and virtually irrelevant. Satyadev although has proven his versatility as an actor as soon as once more and delivers a stable efficiency. Ankith, who performed the harmless younger man is the stand-out performer within the movie and does an incredible job.
At the core of it, Thimmarusu is an earnest try and thrills in most components, however is in any other case let down by a contrived screenplay and a hurried climax.
