Release date: July 14, 2017After watching the trailer of Patel SIR and listening to the authoritative voice of JB in the role of Patel SIR, the expectaation of the cine goers on Patel SIR was all time high. Sai Korrapati’s production house backing to this movie has added to the hype and expectation. This film released world wide on July 14th. Lets see if it is able to meet the expectation.
The story is about a 60 year old retired Army officer who is living alone after his family was wiped out by the drug mafia. So contemporary that the drug mafia is in limelight currently in the Telugu speaking states. The only company Patel has is his grand daughter, the lone survivor after the attack on the family, but is left blinded. So the story line is – Strictly It’s Revenge forming the acronym S.I.R of Patel S.I.R.
The revenge stories have been beaten to death since 1960’s in all the woods.But What stands out here is the interesting screenplay that the newcomer Vasu Parimi has adopted to narrate the story. But because of the ordinary story line that the director chose all the twists and turns didn’t create the expected curiosity among the audience. Director also seemed to have been deviated from the story a bit with characters like Posani, though they don’t gel well with the mood and theme of the story. The second half of the film will be referenced for the directors work in future.
What needs to be mentioned is performance of JB as Patel S.I.R. His looks were fantastic, In recent times he has proved his mettle as antagonist and created a name for himself in South India Film Industry and saved the cine goers from having imported villains. With this movie he has left a mark as an actor of substance carries the movie all alone and makes it a watchable movie.
The background score kept to the mood of the movie. The cinematography did its bit to beautifully capture each frame. The production values were just for the kind of movie. Aamani, padma priya, Subalekha Sudhakar payed their bit well.
Bottom Line: Go watch it for JB. No ratings needed…
