Sesh Adivi’s last outings Kshanam and Ami Thumi, both garnered good response with the cine-goers. Goodachari, directed by Sashi Kiran Tikka gained immense pre-release buzz and has finally hit the screens. Did the Goodachari accomplish his case?
Sesh Adivi plays Arjun, a wannabe detective whose aspirations are cut short due to his non-approving father figure (played by Prakash Raj). After few turn of events, Arjun succeeds in being part of an investigation bureau named Trinethra. He gets to meet Sameera (Sobhita Dhulipala) and they fall in love. He gets trained for an important mission but all isn’t hunky dory for Avinash, as he gets to see the real drama unfolding before his eyes. What are the hurdles he faces? Who is the enemy he is looking out for? This surprisingly forms the internal block of the story.
Sesh Adivi takes time to get into the character but as the scenes unfold, he gels completely. His knack of picking the right subject (story is written by him) is his quality and Goodachari shines due to this aspect. Sobhita Dhulipala makes her debut as Sameera with this flick with élan. Though her role isn’t big but her character’s importance is big.
Prakash Raj gets a meaty role after a while and packs a solid punch. His sequences with Sesh Adivi engage you to the core. Anish Kuruvilla, Anil Reddy, Vennela Kishore play their parts in accordance. Madhu Shalini gets a good part to play. There is another biggie playing a crucial character in the film and this is a suspense which cannot be revealed!
Music by Sricharan Pakala sounds same as Kshanam but it adds a facet to the film. Cinematography deserves applause. Director Sashi Kiran Tikka’s work is impressive as the movie has equal importance to the story as well as the screenplay.
Goodachari puts forward a new leaf to the tree named Tollywood. Initial few sequences may defy logic at few instances (because you haven’t seen these occurrences in Tollywood unlike Hollywood) but as the movie progresses, the logic starts to imply. Few episodes seem directly taken from Kingsman and other films. If you are game for watching something gritty and different, this one will hook you to your seats for a considerable amount of time.
