Dasara movie review


Nani, Deekshith Shetty and Keerthy Suresh are childhood friends. They hail from a village where the alcoholism of the men affects the women in their lives.

The village, where coal mining is a way of life, is divided because of Sai Kumar and Samuthirakani. Nani and Deekshith are best friends.

So much so that Nani will give up his love for Keerthy, who is in love with Deekshith.

As Deekshith and Keerthy take their relationship to the next level, it does not go down well with Shine Tom Chacko.

What happens next forms the rest of the story.


Writer-director Srikanth Odela’s hard work is pretty much visible on the screen. His care for detailing, nativity and accent is appreciable.

While the screenplay is up to the mark, the narration could have been better. Nani’s conviction and dedication while playing this role is applause-worthy.

Nani is in his element while doing emotional scenes. Keerthy Suresh leaves a lasting impact after a long time in Telugu cinema. Only a few can play such roles and this role is another feather in her cap.

Despite being his first Telugu film, Deekshith Shetty did a wonderful job. His role has a lot of significance in the story.

Shine Tom Chacko is quite good in the role of a villain and he makes his mark within a short time. Rest of the cast including Sai Kumar and Samuthirakani have all done their part well.

Songs by Santosh Narayanan are already hits. He showed his trademark style in background scores. Sathyan Sooryan’s cinematography is one of the major highlights of ‘Dasara’.

Rating: 3.6/5
