1: Akhil (Nagarjuna) owns a call-cab service. He
falls in love with a doctor called Siri Valli (Ayesha
Takia). There is a hi-tech robber called Sonu (Sonu
Sood) who loots money in a big way. Akhil and Sonu are
enemies. Sonu adapts Siri Valli as his sister after
the death of Siri Valli's father. When Sonu realizes
that Siri Valli is in love with his arch enemy Akhil,
he asks her to put an end to the relationship. The rest
of the story is all about why Akhil and Sonu became
enemies and how they clear the misunderstandings to
2: Akhil (Nagarjuna), Sonu (Sonu Sood) and Sasha
(Anushka) meet in Mumbai in their needy days as unemployed
graduates. After a few days, they were forced to steal
the money for survival. Then they decide that it is
ok to rob the money and make a living out of it. Sasha
is the sister of Sonu. She loves Akhil. But Akhil do
not have any feelings for her. He treats her just like
a good friend. Sasha dies in an unfortunate incident
and Sonu holds Akhil responsible for her death. They
become enemies. The rest of the story is all about how
they clear the misunderstandings and unite again.
Nagarjuna is like Adonis with that long hair. He brought
style as well as reckless attitude to that character
with his unique portrayal. The way he shakes his hand
with Ayesha Takia while seducing her is cool. Nagarjuna
should also be commended for his magnanimity of giving
fair amount of screen presence for Sonu Sood.
Sonu Sood surprises you with his controlled and lovable
performance. He is very competitive and the perfect
fit for the role. The guy who dubs the voice of Mukesh
Rushi dubbed the voice of Sonu Sood. That dubbing artist
did a good job.
It is very difficult to find a heroine who can match
the charisma of Nagarjuna. Ayesha Takia is one of very
few heroines who complement Nagarjuna's charm onscreen.
She has got very good skin complexion and nice physique.
She is good in romantic and casual scenes, but appeared
bit out of place in emotional scenes and climax episode.
Debutant heroine Anushka is good. Her nose ring added
bit of sex appeal to her.
Piyush Misra is adequate
as villain. Actor Surya dubbed his voice. The way Surya
says 'mama' is hilarious. Sayaji
Shinde is good as the honest cop. Ali
has got special roles in all Puri Jagan's films. Likewise,
Ali got tremendous comedy role in this film as the untalented
portrait maker wearing Scottish skirt. Brahmanandam
is hilarious in lie detector scene. Sunil
has got a good single comedy episode. Khayyum
(Ali's brother) has got a fairly big role in this film
for which he has done justice. Sumitra
and Paruchuri Venkateswara Rao
are the only elderly people in this film.
The basic story of the film is about how two friends
break apart due to a misunderstanding and how they get
back together. Robbery and bike chases have been chosen
as backdrop of this film. But the basic point of heroes
justifying their robbery by comparing it to the scams
and scandals and continuing it does not sound appealing.
- direction: Screenplay of the film is adequate.
Puri Jagan tried to generalize situations without getting
into details. He successfully engaged the viewers throughout
the first half without offering them any story. The
flashback episode which unveils the much needed story
is not narrated well. He could able to adapt the 'Italian
Job' technique perfectly to bring excitement back into
the film towards climax. But he did not look into the
continuity of locations in real time and flashback episodes.
Puri Jagan who always made sure of emotions in his films
could not bring the right emotions for this film. When
heroes realize who the villains are, they would start
helping villains by getting diamonds instead of finishing
Music by Sandeep Chowta is of party type. Milamila song
is the highlight of the film. This is has two locations
and two sets of costumes and is the most trendy Telugu
song I have seen in the recent times. Gichigichi is
a typical bedroom seduction song with lots of intimate
moments between Nagarjuna and Ayesha Takia. Mastana
(Nag & Ayesha) and Chandramukhi (Nag and Anushka)
songs are shot in Mauritius. These two songs are not
impressive. The editing cuts in Chandramukhi song are
so fast that it taxes your eyes. Akkad Bakkad is also
another trendily canned song on Nagarjuna and Anushka.
Mudduletti song is good. Background score and rerecording
are also impressive.
departments: Cinematography by Shyam K Naidu is
excellent. He used all types of camera angles and cranes
to give different perspective to the film. Dialogues
by Puri Jagan are adequate. Editing by Marthand K Venkatesh
is neat in the first half. But the increased frame rate
and rapid editing cuts in the flashback episode make
you feel uneasy. 'Italian Job' thrills by Alen Amin
and Vijay are first rate. Artwork by Chinna is cool.
First half of the film is smooth. Second half is bit
boring. The climax ('Italian Job' in Goa) is impressive.
The plus points of the film are Nagarjuna, trendy shot-making
and music. The major drawbacks of the film are lack
of convincing storyline and lack of emotions. We should
appreciate Nagarjuna for spending so much money on a
film which is completely different from run off the
mill flicks. The thrills in the film should overwhelm
the logic to make these kinds of films work. But the
thrills are not exciting enough (except for the hero
introduction scene and the Italian Job climax). This
film also caters to very limited segment - youth crowd
from urban areas. On a whole, Super makes an average
reviews of previous 5 films
