Pataas Movie Review
'Patas' is the story of ACP Kalyan Sinha played by Nandamuri Kalyan Ram and his transformation from Corrupt to Honest Cop. What's the untold reason behind his Corruption and what prompted him to turn into a Sincere Officer? Grab the tickets to now more!
Kalyan Ram: He is a revelation in this movie. A shift to Comedy Genre worked wonders and he is back to his best after 'Athanokkade'. 'Patas' boost his confidence and revives his career.
Shruti Sodhi: She is just okay in her role as a Reporter and exudes glamour in the songs.
Sai Kumar as DGP is first rate. Roles played by MS Narayana, Srinivas Reddy, Jayaprakash Reddy, 30-years Prithvi, Shakalaka Shankar and Posani are entertaining. Ashutosh Rana as antagonist is effective. Rest of the cast played their parts to perfection.
- Kalyan Ram's Transformation
- Screenplay & Comedy
- Balayya's Arey O Samba remix
- Anil Ravipudi Direction
- Outdated Story
- Resemblance to successful Cop Dramas
Anil Ravipudi who worked for films like Kandireega and Aagadu in the direction department has turned into a filmmaker with a pucca-commercial potboiler 'Patas'. He made good use of his years of experience to deliver an out-and-out entertainer which is racy from the moment go. Taut Screenplay, Good dose of comedy and Heroism elevating scenes have overcome the drawbacks of choosing a routine and predictable story.
Sai Kartheek's songs were decent and background score is pretty good. Cinematography is decent. Dialogues pack a punch. Editing is crisp. Production Values of NTR Arts are good.
NTR's voice over in the beginning of the movie appealing people to be careful while driving on roads is a good gesture. Remix of Balakrishna's Arey O Samba is like a feast for Nandamuri Fans.
Box Office: 'Patas' released in 350-plus screens Worldwide. Its certain to recover the investment within the first week and enters profit zone from thereafter. Kalyan Ram will be more than happy as 'Patas' stands as his best work post 'Athanokkade' and Dil Raju who acquired the distribution rights will have the last laugh.
Verdict: Entertainment Guaranteed!
