Prabhas and Shraddha Kapoor’s Saaho, with its two-hour plus period, is a prolonged movie, a surefire recipe for catastrophe in a thriller.

Solid: Prabhas, Shraddha Kapoor, Neil Nitin Mukesh
The trailer of Saaho starring Prabhas, Shraddha Kapoor, Neil Nitin Mukesh, Jackie Shroff, Chunky Panday, and Prakash Belawadi amongst others appeared attractive sufficient to make a visit to the theatre close by. With its high-octane motion sequences and a few dreamy romance between Prabhas and Shraddha Kapoor, does it stay as much as the promise?
Early on within the film, the homicide of Roy (Jackie Shroff), a gangster making an attempt to show his illegitimate empire right into a reliable one, and the lacking fortune of Rs. 2000 crores, units his underlings scurrying for the Blackbox that safeguards the lacking key. Thus far, so good. Enter supercop Ashok Chakravarthy (Prabhas) a maverick crimebuster who has many surprises up his sleeves. However, quickly the movie goes right into a muddle between the gamut of gangsters and cops gunning for one another in a spot referred to as Waji, and albeit talking, the one evil one you discover is Chunky Panday.
Most thriller administrators know that pulling off a profitable thriller is a tightrope steadiness between pacing the story effectively and dropping in simply sufficient clues on the proper intervals to get the viewers concerned with each tension-fraught minute of the story unfolding on display screen. Sujeeth, the author and director of Saaho makes an attempt an bold motion thriller. However, with a succession battle within the gangster world, a cops and robbers story and a love story all thrown collectively, Saaho finally ends up being a lumbering saga quite than a taut action-packed potboiler.
So far as star pushed automobiles go, it’s fairly evident that Sujeeth has crafted and customised this movie to showcase Prabhas’s prowess to his followers and on that entrance, he scores effectively. Prabhas is splendid. Combining romantic appeal and depth of an motion hero, he dominates each body. He can shoot and serenade with equal aplomb –sufficient to make followers go weak within the knees.
Shraddha Kapoor as Anitha Nair matches as much as him on the romance entrance, however sadly, their tracks collectively are few and much between and interrupted too usually with chase and kill sequences. Of the supporting forged, Murali Sharma and Vennela Kishore as Prabhas’s colleagues present the welcome comedian aid, however the gifted Prakash Belawadi is wasted, as are others like Neil Nitin Mukesh, Mahesh Manjrekar and Mandira Bedi.
Saaho with its two-hour plus period is a prolonged movie, a surefire recipe for catastrophe in a thriller. Firmer enhancing, paring pointless sequences and subplots would have resulted in a movie vastly extra entertaining.
Sadly, regardless of its glitzy packaging, Saaho, due to a uneven, underwritten screenplay and extreme gorefest is a little bit of a letdown even for individuals who love their Hindi films served with a beneficiant dose of masala. Sigh.
