Badrinath - Tollywood film reviews

Allu Arjun's latest film Badrinath opened to bad reviews from most of the critics. The film released on June 10, 2011 simultaneously in Telugu, Malayalam, Tamil with scenes of comedian Santhanam being shot for Tamil version.
Directed by V.V. Vinayak and produced by Allu Aravind, the film stars Tamannah Bhatia and Prakash Raj in prominent roles while the producer himself plays hero in the film.

Rediff review

There were high expectations from Badrinath considering it was a Geeta Arts production, directed by V V Vinayak and starring Allu Arjun and Tamannaah.

Arjun was even sent abroad to learn martial arts and fights for this film whose picturesque Himalayan location was an added attraction.

Yet despite the lavish sets by Anand Sai, that include a recreation of the famous Badrinath temple, the fine camera work of Ravi Varman, and high technical standards, the film falls short of expectation.

Allu Arjun has a supple body, ideal for dancing and action. He breathed some life into the film through the action sequences. But what can he do if the script is lacklustre?
Tamannaah is lively and energetic but is made to show far more skin than is required -- particularly given the film's pious theme. Prakash Raj, for a change, is not a baddie, and turns in a good performance as Guru Bhishma Narayan.

Allu Aravind can take pride in the lavish production and high technical standards. But the plot and storyline are weak and the film does not engage one. The A certificate may also be a deterrent.

Indiaglitz review

Allu Arjun shows off his six pack body and it is in tandem with his charecter of a warrior. His training of martial arts in Vietnaam reflects in his stunts and fights. His costumes are well designed.
Tamannah flaunts her midriff in all the scenes. Her beauty is a galaxy times enhanced in the song 'Nachchavura'. The money spent on making this film is clearly visible in every frame. The background score for this movie is awesome and was used at right places.

The climax of the movie is pale and the screenplay is weak. The VFX used to show clouds, heroine plunging into the river and helicopter shots look fake.
