Pushpa Movie Review Made in the Telugu language among Pan India films Pushpa: The Rise – Part 1 has been released in cinemas in Hindi, Tamil, Malayalam, and Kannada languages. With this film, the superstar of South Indian films, Allu Arjun has appeared in front of the Hindi audience. The story begins from Seshachalam, a dense forest in Andhra Pradesh, from where red sandalwood girls are smuggled to Chennai and then through China to Japan. Pushpa Raj (Allu Arjun) smuggles these woods. Pushpa also has a back story. He is an illegitimate child. He works for Konda Reddy (Ajay Ghosh), a red sandalwood smuggler, as a daily wage laborer who cuts wood.
Pushpa, who uses the pager in the mobile era, is of a sharp mind. He tells Konda several tricks to get these woods away from the eyes of the police. Soon he becomes Konda’s most trusted man. Meanwhile, he falls in love with Srivalli (Rashmika Mandanna), a milk seller. The second track of the story also plays amidst this love angle. Mangalam Srinu (Sunil) transports the smuggled wood to Chennai. He charges Rs 2 crore per tonne for this, whereas in return he gives only Rs 25 lakh per tonne to Konda. When Pushpa comes to know about this, he talks to Srinu. From here the chain of enmity begins. This film is divided into two parts. In such a situation, the story of the film has not reached the end yet.
The story of a laborer becoming the uncrowned king of the crime world is not new, but director and writer Sukumar has presented it in a new way keeping in mind today’s audience. However, after the interval, Sukumar’s grip seems to be loose from both direction and screenplay. The reason for this is the long starcast of the film. After a while, it seems that it could have been wrapped up in a single part. But then there is the entry of Bhanwar Singh Shekhawat (Fahad Faasil) in the last half hour of the film. The expectations that Pushpa and Bhanwar’s enmity had come to remain unfulfilled. This is completely Allu Arjun’s film. He looks the same in every other frame. Sukumar has not got time to set up other characters.
Allu has lived the character of Pushpa. He has put his life through his gestures and body language in every frame, from the timber cutter to the leader of the gang. Pushpa’s Hindi dialogues have been dubbed by actor Shreyas Talpade. His voice fits Allu’s. Rashmika Mandanna’s parts are not special scenes. The scenes in today’s film making the girl smile and ask for a kiss disappoint. Fahad Faasil leaves a mark in a small scene. Whoever is in front, I will not bow down…, hearing Pushpa’s name flower understands what… Flower is not fire… Like the dialogues garner applause. Samantha Ruth Prabhu’s item song Gore Gore Mukhde Par… and Allu’s dance number Yeh Mera Adda… are both fun to watch and listen to.
