Yawn! Here's yet another predictable gangster saga. [+43%]

Who's interested in seeing the rise of yet another generic mass hero these days? From Pushpa's intro scene, it becomes evident that he's invincible. Even if he's just a daily wage laborer, no one can touch him. No one can think one step ahead of him, no one can beat him in a fistfight, and no one can match his dance moves. Poor flirting skills aside, he's written in a pretty God-like way. This might work for Allu Arjun's fans, but for everyone else, the film offers nothing - neither plot-wise, performance-wise, nor technicality-wise. The animated opening bit looks tacky, the performances are everything you expect from a masala film (loud and over-the-top), and the scenes play out exactly how you expect them to. There's no inventiveness in the writing or staging.

Even the mildly entertaining set-piece where Pushpa's partially blindfolded was executed much better in Shankar's I. There was barely anything exhilarating in how Pushpa rises the ranks and becomes a straight-up gangster. None of the antagonists (or supporting acts) could hold a candle to Allu Arjun's screen presence, that's for sure. As a result, the threats don't feel like actual threats. For a 2h 50m film, the romance portions also miss the mark by a mile. Rashmika Mandanna's character is written to exalt Pushpa further and give him someone to rescue in a pivotal scene. DSP's BGM is a mixed bag. There are few good individual stretches, but on the whole, it didn't leave any memorable notes.

A few notable aspects include Miroslaw Kuba Brozek's cinematography and color-grading. Fahad Faasil's DSP Bhanwar Singh Shekhawat arrives in the last half hour, but even he isn't a standout. He mocks Pushpa the way others did in earlier scenes, diminishing the fiery payoff when the two first meet. The climactic finale is a complete after-thought, only interested in setting up part two. This "Rise" is utterly predictable and a chore to sit through.

AA's finest performance and one of the greatest films to date.

Although I am an Allu Arjun fan since long and have loved all of his films I have watched, I didn't expect to be surprised this much when I began watching Pushpa: The Rise. The visuals are picturesque, the action choreography is outstanding and the world-building is phenomenal. Although it could've been a bit shorter, director Sukumar has backed his film with enough positives to justify the existence of almost every scene. And Allu Arjun's shockingly outstanding performance proves why he is loved by audiences all over India.

Allu Arjun has over the years become synonymous with the action genre, and hence viewers expect quality action from his movies. And gladly, the film has impressed here big time. I really enjoyed the fight scenes a lot, and felt I could have enjoyed them better on the big screen. A lot of gorgeous locales add an adventurous feel to the proceedings. The cinematography, background music and dialogues are fascinating. The amount of tension and suspense, however, in the film's final act are something that takes the film to a whole different level. It has brilliantly depicted director Sukumar's ability to change a film's tone from time to time without any hassle.

Allu Arjun has delivered the most outstanding performance his career. His first best, in my opinion, was in Arya: also directed by Sukumar and a cinematic gem. He has outdone even that and delivered a perfect bang for the buck. The makers of Pushpa: The Rise have taken care of all departments since they understand why and what Allu Arjun fans want from his movies. This is a captivating action flick with lots of fun from start to finish. While a lot of people now tend to believe star-driven films are inching towards extinction, this superstar vehicle with equal mass and class entertainment begs to differ, and succeeds in this mission.
