Saaho Movie Review Highlights:
09:30 am: Prabhas and Shraddha Kapoor starrer Saaho begins with begins with signature wide angles of massive structures and grim-looking men, talking about serious business. The film definitely leaves the fans in awe looking at the picturization. It begins in the city of Waji and fans are introduced with the antagonists (villains), Roy(Jackie shroff) and Minister Ramaswamyallagadda (Tanikella Bharani). However, other actors like Chunky Pandey, Mandira Bedi are not introduced properly.
09:45 am: Actor Prabhas keeps up with the expectations of his fans and marks his grand entry with a strong background score. The actor is seen kicking some ass in his first few scenes and fighting the goons with uber style. Prabhas is playing the role of police officer Ashok Chakravarthy and is assigned the task to chase robbers. There is hardly anyone to hasn't applauded to whistled at Prabhas' dynamic entry.
10:00 am: Next enters Shraddha Kapoor who is also playing a cop in the film, named Amritha Nair. While Prabhas' entry made an impact on the viewers, Shraddha Kapoor entered the film in no out of the box way. Prabhas flirts with Shraddha in his charming style while she doesn't get impressed with anything he says.
10:15 am: Saaho's story revolves around a robbery of Rs 2 lakh crores by Chunky Pandey. While all the antagonists are in search of the money that Chunky has stolen and hidden, cops Prabhas and Shraddha are trying to figure out who has stolen the money and where is it.
10:20 am: Prabhas and Shraddha reach a pun as undercover agents in search of Neil Nitin Mukesh where they perform on the song Psycho Saiyaan.
10:30 am: Shraddha Kapoor's character is very poorly sketched in the film Saaho. Though she is a cop and it is her responsibility to save other people from the danger, she herself has to be saved by the ultimate hero Prabhas. On the other hand, the action scenes and fighting sequences are superbly done. Soon after the action comes the romantic scenes between the lead duo.
10:45 am: Makers have put in a lot of money in the movie and it is evident from the breathtaking visuals and picturization.
11:10 am: After the interval, the movie resumes with its action sequences and Prabhas-Shraddha love story along with a new set of twists. Bad Boy song featuring Prabhas and Jacqueline Fernandez gets a big applaud from the viewers, The actress surely looks very hot in the songs and adds to the glamour.
11:25 am: Shraddha Kapoor and Prabhas are doing a decent job when it comes to acting. Makers have tried to bring many twists in the film which has only harmed the story. While songs are shot in beautiful locations, they aren't placed very well in the film. Song Baby Won't You Tell Me comes at a point in the film where there was no need and viewers were only interested to see what happens next.
11:30 am: Chunky Pandey has done a fabulous job as an antagonist in Saaho. It is surely refreshing for the fans to see him in a serious character rather than in a comic one. He has played his role fairly well in comparison to other actors.
11:45 am: Lots of twists and turns makes Saaho bit of a drag. However, the action scenes and building demolition scenes are good and well shot. They keep the viewers hooked.
12:15 pm: The film's climax is as grand as the audience would like it to be with high-octane action and out of the box twists.
Saaho Movie Budget
Saaho has been produced with a budget of ₹350 crore. It has been shot with IMAX cameras.
