Lion

My Review:- 1.5/5



Genre: Action -  Drama


Theatre watched : Cinepolis Screen 3

Censor Rating : "U/A" 

Run time : 159 Min

Pre release Expectations :
Bala Krishna after a hit with "Legend" is back with "Lion",a powerful action entertainer directed by debutant Satyadeva...Trisha and Radhika Apte are playing the female leads...Mani Sharma after a long time scored tunes for Bala Krishna...Pre release business of this movie is quite weak...Let's see whether this movie turns out to be a profitable venture or not???

Did it reach the expectations ???

My Review :- 
"Lion" movie reminded me Bala krishna of 'Veerabhadra' and 'Mitrudu' time...A poorly executed revenge drama...Debutant Satya deva fails to impress...!!!

Highlights:-
Bala Krishna is as usual the centre of attraction with this trademark dialogues and powerful scenes.
Mani Sharma back ground score is good.     
     
Disappointments:- 
Though the first half built up some suspense it fell flat in the second half. Satya deva failed in continuing the momentum.
Bala Krishna - Trisha love track is horrible.
Radhika Apte has nothing to do except for songs.
Bala Krishna's styling could have been better.
Music by Mani Sharma doesn't create any impact.
Lot of violence.
Prakash Raj is routine.
Many scenes are felt artificial...Like first train fight,dialogue on old age homes,etc..
Ali,Jaya Sudha are completely wasted.

Engaging moments:-.   
Confrontation scene between Bala Krishna and Prakash raj.

My
 verdict :- "Lion" movie is just another "Srimannarayana","Mitrudu","Veerabhadra" type of movie with the result being same more or less...Very slim chances of working at box office...!!!

Film status at Box Office:-
Openings are good...!!!

Bottomline:- FAILS TO ROAR...!!!

Final verdict:- Utter Flop.
