Varun Tej‘s Gaandheevadhari Arjuna has been released in theatres today. The film is directed by Praveen Sattaru. Here’s the review of Gaandeevadhari Arjuna:
Plot: Aditya Raj (Nassar) who is a central minister receives a death threat as he heads for the next UN Summit to submit a report that will threaten a big company. Arjun Varma (Varun Tej) has been appointed as a security guard to prevent his murder.
Who wants to kill the minister? What do they want from the UN and other bodies? Will Arjun Varma be able to save the prime target?
On-screen performances: Varun Tej looks stylish and sexy in the lead role. But his acting is not up to the mark. Only the looks can’t save his performance. Sakshi Vaidya looks good on screen but there are no romantic or wow moments between the lead pair, which eventually makes the audience lose interest.
Vinay Rai is seen as Ranveer, the owner of an evil company named C&G. Ravi Varma plays his mercenary. Nassar is very good. The child artist seen as his grandaughter is cute.
- Routine Story
- Boring Screenplay
- Not a single high moment
- Outdated Scenes
- Outdated Direction
Director Praveen Sattaru is known for ‘PSV Garuda Vega’. He has not been in form lately. His previous film, ‘The Ghost’, was released in 2022. The action thriller, starring Akkineni Nagarjuna, was a colossal disaster.
‘Gaandeevadhari Arjuna’ was announced before the release of ‘The Ghost’. Producer BVSN Prasad invested a bomb in making the movie. Recently, in a combative mode, the director denied that the budget of the film is Rs 55 Cr. Going by the visuals, one believes that the budget is very high, much beyond Varun Tej’s market range.
The second half of the film is hopeless, with the chases and action blocks boring the audience throughout. The climax is quite simplistic.
Verdict: Watch it at your own risk.
