Bottom Line: A passable entertainer from Pawan and Trivikram, deja vu overloaded.
With his last 2 releases Katamarayudu and sardar Gabbar Singh failing to set the box office on fire, and disappointing Fans, Powerstar Pawan Kalyan has reunited with his favorite director Trivikram who had twice given him career turning blockbusters, Jalsa and Atharintiki Dhaaredhi, to deliver his 25th movie Agnyaathavaasi. With a huge star cast and humongous expectations surrounding the project, lets see if the makers have lived up to the expectations in exclusive first on net Agnyaathavaasi review by team AP Herald.

The film revolves around Abhijit Bhargav (Pawan Kalyan) , a heir of a rich Family, who enters the scene soon after the death of his dad. As he finds that his dad was murdered, Abhijit decides to find the murderers and take revenge by entering his dad's office. Was Abhijit able to save his family and also eliminate his dad's murderers and complete his revenge is what Agnyaathavaasi is all about.
Powerstar Pawan Kalyan, who was seen in a quiet and composed role in Katamarayudu, is back to his energetic form, and he's at his best in mouthing Massy and classy punchlines penned beautifully by Trivikram, while also entertainingly fans with his power packed screen presence and charisma. Aadhi Pinisetty plays the perfect foil for Pawan's character, and excels in his surprising character. Kushboo and Rao Ramesh prove the veterans they are, and are perfectly cast in their respective Roles. While Keerthy Suresh looks homely and entices with her romantic and bubbly characterization, Anu Emmanuel looks uber stylish and sizzles in her chemistry with Pawan. The rest of the cast is just adequate.
Anirudh has given a stunning background score for Agnyaathavaasi, elevating heroism to a whole new level with his musical gems, while he also scores high on songs, with Baitikochi chusthe, Swagatham Krishna and Gaali Vaaluga being the pick of the lot. Cinematography by Manikandan is top notch, capturing the exotic locales and the heavy duty action sequences and visual splendour of songs beautifully. Editing by Kotagiri Venkateswara Rao could have been taut as the second half is a drag fest literally. After scoring hits like Atharintiki Dhaaredhi, A Aa etc, and remaining as one of most bankable directors of Tollywood industry, Trivikram has joined hands with Powerstar Pawan Kalyan for the 3rd time, and naturally, expectations were high on this big-budget crazy entertainer. 


This time around, Trivikram has chosen to go for the tale of a rich heir who returns to solve a mystery and save lost glory and unite families. With the plot reminiscent of earlier flicks , one expected Trivikram to come up with a fresh treatment of the script, but he has decided to play safe, with scenes giving a feel of deja vu, and very much a reminder of the combo's previous outing Atharintiki Dhaaredhi. Though the first half moves fun filled with Powerstar at his cool and stylish best, and makes one wait in anticipation for the second half to unveil, the second half drags big time, and with unwarranted song sequences and poorly written cliched romantic scenes, the second half makes Agnyaathavaasi a lengthy affair. Despite its predictability,poor placement of songs and the underutilized chemistry between lead pair, the film is lifted by Pawan and Anirudh's BGM, besides the enjoyable Trivikram brand dialogues, that make up for all that stereotypes and cliches that Agnyaathavaasi has, ultimately making it a1 can watch flick.
