Pawan Kalyan starrer “Vakeel Saab” is the Telugu remake of Amitabh Bachchan starrer Bollywood movie “Pink”. But the director Sriram Venu has made enough changes in the script according to Pawan Kalyan who has a massive outreach. Also, he has chosen Shruti Hassan for an important role.
Three women – Vemula Pallavi (Nivetha Thomas), Zareena (Anjali) and Divya (Ananya Nagalla) – meet Vamshi (Vamsi) and his friends at a resort. There they sexually assault the girls. Pallavi hits Vamshi with a bottle on his head to escape from his clutches and the three girls run away. Injured Vamshi who belongs to a political family gets Pallavi arrested by filing a backdate case against her. The girls approach Vakeel Saab Konidela Satya Dev (Pawan Kalyan) for help.
Highlights of the movie:
• Pawan Kalyan returning after a brief interval of three years
• Prakash Raj delivers a compelling performance
• The second half of the movie is all about court drama
• Powerful subject line and dialogues
Weakness of the movie:
• Poorly scripted flashback story in the first half
• Less appealing than the original movie
“Vakil Saab” has many things in common with Pink but the Telugu remake is more centric to Pawan Kalyan. The movie starts with a very positive note but looks tilting towards Pawan Kalyan. It seems that the director wanted to give the star an advantage. But the director has tried to retain as much originality as possible. Overall, the movie is good to watch with family and friends.
