Movie Verdict

Sri Simha Koduri, who is the son of the famous singer MM Keeravani, is trying to stand out in Telugu cinema by making movies about unusual things. After a really interesting and suspenseful start, Dongalunnaru Jaagratha gets off track with some funny scenes. Even though there was some exciting action in the movie, it was easy to ignore that in favor of the feeling that something was missing, which made the movie boring. The most entertaining parts of the movie are the first and last acts.

Most of the scenes in the movie involve the main character, who is stuck in a car and filmed in a small space. This makes it hard for the actor to give a big performance. To be fair, Simha Koduri did his best to hide how inexperienced he was as an actor throughout the movie, but the close-up shots in most of the scenes made his lack of skill clear. Simha seems to have trouble showing feelings that aren’t funny, but he still has room to improve in this area. Samuthirakani did a good job, especially considering how little time he had compared to the other cameo actors.

Dongalunnaru Jaagratha looks good on paper. The music by Kaala Bhairava is great, and it adds to the drama of a few important scenes. The cinematographer, Yeshwanth C., should be praised for his work. Even though most of the action takes place in a car, the director tried to show the different points of view of the characters by shooting from different angles. The quality of the film’s production is fine.

It was brave of Satish Tripura to make his first movie a survival thriller, but he could have done more to make the story more exciting and make sense. Still, he deserves credit for bringing Telugu to a genre that had not been explored before.

Dongalunnaru Jaagratha has some slow parts, but it’s a good survival thriller as a whole. The first survival thriller to be made in the Telugu language is now playing in theatres.
