Director Boyapati Srinu after his 2010 blockbuster “Simha” has once again treaded on a familiar path wherein the story fits into the action genre. Srinu known to work with big stars right from his debut film had chosen Jr. NTR to essay the lead role in his latest film “Dammu” (meaning courage). The story turns out to be a time tested one which required a refreshing screenplay and narration to carry it through. However, due a lagging screenplay the film fails to meet its expectations.

Jr. NTR has treaded on a very familiar path playing a complete action hero role once again. In fact, his high voltage introduction scene indicates to the audience that the film is full of such high voltage action sequences. The crux of the storyline is so simple that there are two families in a district who fight each other for supremacy. When one faction gains supremacy, they tread into atrocious ways and keep the other faction at check.

The role of Jr. NTR is as predicted, come in between the two factions and make sure peace prevails at the end. The cast is filled with high quality performers like Nasser, Sampath, Kishore, Kota Sreenivasa Rao, Suman, Bhanupriya, Brahmanandha and Ali to name a few. To give Jr. NTR company are the two leading ladies in Trisha and Karthika.

The treatment meted out to the storyline reminds the viewers of the Balakrishna starrer “Simha” except for the ending which again looks very artificial. Boyapati Srinu has missed more than a trick in this department considering that he takes only one film every two years.

In terms of acting, Jr. NTR carries the entire film on his shoulders and he hasn’t let the viewers or his fans down. On the other hand taking into comparison the performance of the two leading ladies, it is Trisha who wins the race hands down. Karthika doesn’t show any intent in acting whilst Trisha has acted with real intent and composure. All other supporting actors have done more than a decent job in this film.

The film has a running time of 150 minutes and for Jr. NTR fans, this film is a treat to watch. The film is a doubtful proposition at the box-office for the reason that the screenplay and editing drags the pace of the film badly.

“Dammu” turns out to be a mediocre fare.
