One movie that has been generating the right buzz and hype with its songs and promos lately is “The Warriorr.” The song “Bullett” has gone viral. With Tamil director N Lingusamy helming the film, it sparked curiosity. Did the film meet all expectations?

Let’s find out.

Satya (Ram Pothineni), a young doctor from Kurnool, quickly realizes that the rowdy Guru (Aadhi Pinishetty) controls the whole town.

When Satya complains about Guru in a police station, he also learns that the police are of little help to people here.

When Satya confronts Guru directly, the rowdy beats the doctor to the pulp. Satya’s mother (Nadiya) takes her injured son to another town. Two years later, Satya is back in town. This time as an IPS officer!

The rest of the drama is Satya versus Guru.

Artist services:
In his career, Ram Pothineni has never played a cop until now. As a doctor turned police officer, he delivers a flawless act. He is in his form. He shows a marked difference between his two avatars – doctor and cop.

Aadhi Pinishetty delivered a believable act as the rowdy Guru.

Krithi Shetty gets a cute Radio Jockey role, but her character doesn’t add much value to the story. She complements Ram very well with her dancing.

Nadhiya is fine. Brahmaji gets a notable scene.

Technical Excellence:
Devi Sri Prasad’s music is a huge plus. Catchy songs – “Bullett” and “Whistle” helped the proceedings a lot. Sai Madhav Burra shows his mark in some of the dialogues. The camera work and design and production values ​​are decent.

Strong points:

Ram Pothineni’s act as a cop
DSP songs
Krithi Shetty Abduction Scene


Regular story
Climax and final scenes
Predictable narrative

Director Lingusamy’s Telugu debut starring Ram follows the usual theme of action dramas. The story is nothing new, except that Ram is a doctor turned police officer.

Aadhi Pinishetty’s introduction is interesting. For every murder he commits, he plants a tree. To prove his murderous deeds, the camera zooms in on a vast forest. Sequences like this added novelty to an initially action drama.

The fun romantic drama between the Radio Jockey (Krithi) and the Doctor (Ram) at the start makes the proceedings watchable. Although the clash between Ram and Aadhi Pinishetty is routine, the first games hold our attention.

The problem with this predictable storyline is that director Lingusamy didn’t add any new twists after intermission. It’s a simple fight between a hero and a villain.

Everyone knows the hero will win against the villain in the end. So what’s the thrill? The excitement you need when two forces clash is missing here in the second half.

The only highlight of the second half of the film is the Krithi Shetty kidnapping scene. The tense moments are terrifically written, acted and directed. Barring that, the rest of the movie runs along the expected line – the battle between hero and villain.

Lingusamy featured Ram in his fiercest avatar as a cop, but he should have added more masala in the later portions.

The backdrop of Kurnool, a rowdy controlling the whole town, a policeman taking the rowdy… none of this is new to Telugu audiences. Perhaps director Lingusamy thought a doctor becoming an IPS officer to heal the injured system might bring something new to the mass genre. It would have been different if he had injected some energy into the last part.

Despite three terrific songs, Ram’s hyperactive performance, and a few interesting scenes, the film lacks the “fire” required for such mass entertainers.

In a word, “The Warriorr” is like the famous Ragi Sankati of Rayalaseema but this Sankati is not served with “Kodi koora” but with sambar or chutney. Therefore, the spiciness is absent. It’s edible, but not tasty enough.

At the end of the line : Not worthy of a whistle
