Rugged and fiery with a reason, Ee Nagaraniki Emaindi fame Viswaksen turned Falaknuma Das to meet the audiences. Touted to be the official remake of Malayalam film Angamali Diaries, the film released today. The theatrical trailer already created huge expectations on the film. Read on the review of Falaknuma Das!
Das (Viswaksen), who is based out of Falaknuma area in Hyderabad runs a meat business. His life changes all of a sudden when he gets involved in the world of crime after he loses his temper and acts irrationally during a dispute with a rival business group. What did Das do in anger? How did he come out of it? What happens in the end? Forms the story of the movie.
Viswaksen is definitely the show stealer for this film. Viswak already has experience in acting in such raw films and we can say that it helped him a lot in giving his best in this movie. His natural and realistic performance made the movie even more interesting. Tharun Bhascker got a really interesting role in this film and he will definitely impress the audience with his role. Uttej played a key role in the film and he will evoke good laughs in the theatres. The heroines Saloni Misra, Harshita Gaur are a big minus point in the movie as hey completely failed to attract the crowds. The rest of the cast including all the newcomers are okay.
Production values by Vanmaye Creations, Vishwak Sen cinemas & Terranova Pictures & Media 9 Creative Works are outstanding. Vidya Sagar Chinta has handled the cinematography very well and his visuals are worth appreciating. Music by Vivek Sagar is disappointing but he impressed with his BGM. Editing by Ravi Teja is decent. The production design is excellent.
Though this is a remake, the hero cum director Viswaksen failed to prepare an interesting story for this film. Instead of what people usually do with the remakes, he has come up with necessary changes to the movie but could not execute them properly. When we look at the film, it looks extremely horrible in some scenes. Not even a single scene in the film will increase the curiosity among the audience.
The director has failed to narrate the film in an intriguing way. The movie starts off on an interesting note and the first half is filled with the character introductions and the way all the characters behave. But it gets too long and boring. The climax is key for this film but it was not handled well because of a poor script on hand. There are many flaws in the film. Viswaksen has failed in executing this remake and stayed untrue to the original.
