Sir Telugu Review & Ratings | Hit or Flop?

Sir Movie Review: Dhanush does not require an introduction because he has shown to be the most versatile actor in Indian film. Dhanush has a solid fan base in Tamil and he also has a fan base in Telugu states, but his market is not as large as Suriya and Karthi’s, thus he opted to branch out with the straight Telugu film Sir, directed by Rang De director Venky Atluri. The film Sir has finally been released, so without further ado, let’s examine it in depth to determine whether it’s worth viewing.

Movie Verdict

It’s been a while since we’ve seen a film with an educational background, and after a lengthy absence, Venky Atluri has produced this intriguing argument with the most talented actor in Indian cinema. The film begins on a sluggish note, but gradually moves towards its major plot. The first half features Dhanush mark’s comedy, Hyper Adi’s one-liners, and an introduction to the education mafia.

Although the storyline is predictable, the actual plot of the education mafia comes in the second half. Dhanush compelled you to remain seated for two and a half hours. The central idea is intriguing, but the film’s plot seems somewhat old, and there is little suspense. The film’s pace fluctuates intermittently, with some slow-moving parts; yet, the climax is quite good.

Samyuktha Menon does a decent job in her limited screen time, Hyper Adi as usual impressed with his signature one-liners, and the rest of the cast including Tanikella Bharani, Sanuthirakani, and Adukalam Narens did their best as the story demanded.

Kudos to Venky Atluri for selecting this topic after a lengthy absence; the message he wished to express through the film is highly relatable, but his attempts to combine it with commercial elements appear to have backfired, despite his success in engaging the audience with his writing.

Technically, Sir is excellent; J Yuvaraj’s photography is the film’s strong suit; GV Prakash Kumar’s songs may appeal to Tamil viewers; and the rest of the technical crew did their best.

Sir is a film that should be viewed by all demographics and is essential viewing for Dhanush lovers.
