Asuraguru Review

Critic Rating: 3.5 / 5

STORY:

Sakthi (Vikram Prabhu) is a courier delivery staff. But that’s not all. He is a tech-savvy thief who robs huge money from smugglers, banks and those involved in fraudulent activities.

One day, when he steals freshly printed currency notes of the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) from a moving train, it becomes a huge issue and a special officer Manickavasagam (Subbaraju) gets appointed to probe the case.

In the meantime, Sakthi also robs from a smuggler’s Jamaludeen’s (Nagineedu) son. But Jamaludeen, instead of filing a police complaint, approaches a detective agency.

The agency asks its smart detective Divya (Mahima Nambiar) to investigate the case. The rest is about whether Manicakavasam and Divya are able to catch Sakthi and why the protagonist is involved in the thefts.

ANALYSIS:

Asuraguru, directed by Rajdeep with Vikram Prabhu, Mahima Nambiar, Subbaraju, Nagineedu and Yogi Babu in key roles, is a heist thriller that has its own moments.

While the first half is okay with racy scenes, the second half is engaging. Vikram Prabhu impresses us, especially in stunt scenes.

Mahima looks good as private detective, and the likes of Nagineedu and Subbaraju are okay. Yogi Babu’s comedy fails to trigger laughter in many places.

Technical aspects of the movie are up to the mark. On the whole, Asuraguru is good in parts, and the whole team has made the film an engaging watch.
