Having streaked the line of success earlier, both Trivikram Srinivas and Pawan Kalyan are coming together for ‘Agnyaathavaasi’. The film features Aadhi, Jayaprakash, Kushboo Sundar, Keerthy Suresh and Anu Emmanuel in important roles. Anirudh has composed music for this film.

Pawan Kalyan plays Abhishekta Bhargav, first son of Govinda Bhargav (Boman Irani), a rich billionaire and sweet acquaintance to stepmother (Kushboo). When his father and younger brother are mysteriously murdered, he sets out to find out the culprits and must prove that he is the heir to the entire kingdom of AB empire to keep it away from falling into the wrong hands.

Agnyaathavaasi could be regarded as a much unusual film from Pawan Kalyan-Trivikram Srinivas duo. The film is completely dissimilar from the duo’s erstwhile movies. It doesn’t let the protagonist imbibe in over mass heroism moments and keep uttering punch dialogues. Moreover, the mass moments in the film are in dearth, which might slightly disappoint Pawan Kalyan fans. The opening prologue of this film gives a clear idea about what this film could be all about. Moreover, Trivikram has done a neat justice to the script. On the flip side, such a script actually demands a racy narration for it involves lots of challenges into the part of protagonist. For a person to smash down the antagonists in the brainy style and indeed prove of his identity, it needs lots of dramatic play. But what we see in contrary is some unwanted sequences. Especially, the first half keeps itself stretched out into boring moments. The characterizations suffer from being incomplete and this applies to everyone except Pawan Kalyan’s role. Say for instance, every important character including Aadhi is being introduced too late into the play. Even for the characterization of Bollywood actor Boman Hirani, which happens to be the central core of this film, his episodes comes lately in time. But the biggest plus if musical score by Anirudh. This is the first ever time, he has tried a completely new style from his erstwhile movies. The background score is the strongest attraction of this movie. Although the songs are very well composed, they don’t fit well in to the screenplay of this film.

Of course, the biggest source of attraction is the screen presence of Pawan Kalyan. He manages to keep the show going on and on with his body language , mass moments and even the hilarious quotients are done at his routine best. Keerthy Suresh and Anu Emmanuel have nothing special to perform and they remind us off Parvathy and Ileana role in Jalsa. Aadhi playing the role of baddie does what is needed to the role, but nothing so much powerful. Kushboo Sundar expresses an intense emotion into her characterization.

On the whole, Agnyaathavaasi happens to be an impressive movie for Pawan Kalyan. But what should have been a really racy movie gets stuck with sluggish moments. It holds an emotional plot, which has its own moments to keep us engrossed.

Verdict : An emotional plot that has best moments, but not a regular treat from Pawan-Trivikram duo.
