Dots not connected well
Screenplay and narration
Naga Shaurya plays it safe and delivers a top-notch performance throughout the film. He has been emotional, angry and entertaining through his role. Mehreen had a limited role and she did her part well. The villain (name not disclosed) takes the lead in the second half and delivers stupendous performance and is the other highlight of the film. All the other actors did their parts well.
Aswathama has a lean plot which is known to everyone. The screenplay and dialogues are more crucial for a film like Aswathama. But they are just ok. The music and the background score steals the show. The cinematography work has been top class and the production values are an asset for Aswathama. The editing work looks decent and debutant Ramana Teja fails to keep the film engaging and interesting.
Aswathama looks decent with the first half but the most crucial second half remains low and falls flat. Naga Shaurya tops the show with his performance.
