One day after Nandamuri Balakrishna’s action film Veera Simha Reddy was released, megastar Chiranjeevi’s mass-action drama Waltair Veerayya is ready to rock the Telugu states box office on January 13. These two films, which are made by Mythri Movie Makers, both feature Shruti Haasan as the female lead. KS Ravindra, also known as Bobby Kolli, is the film’s writer and director.
In the opening scene of Waltair Veerayya, infamous international drug trafficker Solomon Caesar (played by Bobby Simha) escapes from the custody of RAW agents in an Andhra Pradesh village. He and his followers murder police officers and RAW agents as they plot a quick getaway to Malaysia. Solomon would be apprehended by an honest police inspector (Rajendra Prasad), who will then bring him back to India to make him pay for his misdeeds. In order to do this enormous assignment, he turns to Waltair Veerayya (Chiranjeevi), a notorious fisherman who engages in smuggling, and together they travel to Malaysia. In Malaysia, he not only meets Adithi (Shruti Haasan), his love interest, but the plot also begins to take shape when Veerayya befriends Solomon.
To please Megastar Chiranjeevi fans, Bobby Kolli makes an effort to make the two portions of the movie as unique as possible. The most of the comedy and lighthearted moments are in the first half, along with the song from the Boss Party. The director creates a thrilling after-intermission block, with lots of action and Mass Maharaja Ravi Teja’s entry. To highlight Chiranjeevi and Ravi Teja’s star status and give them that larger-than-life vibe, low angle and slo-mo shots are frequently utilised in the action scenes.
The plot of the movie isn’t particularly original, but Bobby Kolli might have toned down the action sequences, particularly in the second half, which drags. The film is well-made technically, and Devi Sri Prasad’s songs have been topping the charts.
With this movie and his portrayal of Waltair Veerayya, Chiranjeevi appears to be back in shape. He has great swagger, style, and comic timing, and he looks young. Chiranjeevi had plenty of opportunity to display his dance prowess in Devi Sri Prasad’s songs, and the Megastar even does a brief tribute to Michael Jackson. For his fans, Chiranjeevi has checked all the necessary boxes with romance and a tonne of action.
Mass Maharaja Ravi Teja, meanwhile, has been given a substantial role as a cop that is crucial to the plot. The Poonakalu loading jig performed by Ravi Teja and Chiranjeevi is the highlight; it is a pleasant surprise and lingers with you long after you leave the theatre.
Bobby Simha has finally landed a solid job with lots of performance room, albeit one with a bad character. And he succeeded in doing it. While Catherine Tresa doesn’t have a lot of screen time, Shruti Haasan plays a respectable RAW agent and fulfils her duties well.
