Vishnu Manchu has gone for complete makeover for this character. He is extremely stylish and macho in that bearded look. He has done some risky stunts in this film that will leave you amazed. Vishnu hasn’t done many action films in his career so far. He simply rocked as an action star. People who love to see realistic action will be thrilled with Vishnu’s stunts in this film. His performance is too good in the emotional scenes.
Praneetha, JD and Others:
Praneetha’s performance is good as the damsel in distress. She did her bit in giving ample support to Vishnu. JD Chakravarthy the veteran has once again stole the show with his flawless performance. His expressions in the scene where he watches a video along with an investigation officer are simply superb. Raja Ravindra, Nagireddy, Praveen, Paruchuri Ventakeswara Rao and others are apt in their respective characters.
Deva Katta who has done emotional films in the past has proved that he can handle an action thriller with ease. Racy screenplay and breezy narration turned out to be the highlights of this film. There aren’t any glaring errors on the direction front. This is fairly decent work from Deva Katta. He has recovered from his previous dud to deliver a solid action thriller.
Music and Others:
There is no scope for songs in this film. They have placed three songs to please the masses, but could have done without them. Achu’s music is fine. His background score is impressive. Satish’s cinematography is another plus point. Editing is crisp. Fight master Vijayan’s work is simply fantastic. Dialogues are good. Production values are topnotch.
Weak take off
Dynamite keeps you on the edge with scintillating action and with a screenplay that moves ahead at breakneck pace. There are few teething problems as the story takes some time to unfold. It keeps you guessing all the time until the villain is revealed. It is all blasting action once the villain gets into action.
First half may have few problems but the second half is so brilliant with interesting mind games and exhilarating action. This is easily one of the finest films in Vishnu’s career thus far. Audience who love to watch breezy action thrillers will be left mind blown by the end of the movie. It is a different genre movie that may not appeal to the audience who look for comedy and masala elements.
Deva Katta’s screenplay is so good. He could have avoided songs that come as speed breakers. Last half an hour is the major highlight in the film. You cannot take your eyes off the screen after JD Chakravarthy enters the commissioner’s office. Vishnu’s performance and the action scenes are more than your money’s worth. And there is much more in offer in this Dynamite. Watch it.
Verdict: Solid Action Thriller.
