Naga Chaitanya, who is sailing high with the hit of his recent family drama film ‘Rarandoi Veduka Chudham, is now coming up with action-thriller movie “Yuddham Sharanam” under the direction of his school friend Krishna Marimuthu with Actor Srikanth as the main protagonist. Lets find out how well did this new age film director had showcased his talent in this debut movie.
Arjun (Naga Chaitanya), a graduate, does not like to work for someone and tries his hand in drone making. He falls in love with doctor Anjali (Lavanya Tripathi) who comes to Hero's place for 2 months medical camp. When everything is going good in his life, a fateful incident turns his life upside down.
He loses his parents (Rao Ramesh & Revathi) in an car accident that is planned by Naayak (Srikanth). Why is Naayak behind Arjun and his family? And how does Arjun take his revenge on the perpetrators who targeted his family forms the rest of the story.
Hero leads a happy and peaceful life along with his family and meets heroine who comes to his place. Villain kills hero parents because they witness a murder done by Villain. At last hero takes revenge on Villain. This is the story of Yuddham Sharanam. When the main story is so simple and routine, people expect the director to tell the story with gripping screenplay but Krishna Marimuthu had other thoughts in his mind. He had mistaken gripping screenplay with confusing and boring screenplay by frequent shifting of the story between past and present.
Except the scene where hero saves the life of a pregnant lady by sending blood with the help of his drone, there is nothing interesting in the movie. First half passes with family drama of Rao Ramesh & Revathi and love story of Arjun & Anjali but second half tests the patience with confrontation scenes between Arjun and Nayaak.
Naga Chaitanya had nothing new to offer other than what audience has watched him in his earlier movie "Sahasam Swasaga Sagipo". He could not make audience believe the pain of Arjun, who parents got killed by Naayak. Lavanya Tripathi does not add any value to this film in terms of glamour or performance. Srikanth getup was intense and menacing but his weak character outsmarted his getup. Rao Ramesh and Revathi performed well in their roles of Arjun’s parents. Music by Vivek Sagar is boring with uninteresting songs and BGM
Finally, Yuddham Sharanam could neither satisfy family audience nor viewers of action thriller genre. The director had completely lost the control on the movie, which resulted in boring and routine experience
Result: Chay Lost It
