V [2020] 

Direction : Mohanakrishna Indraganti

Music : Amit Trivedi, Thaman

“V is promoted as a different film, but turns out to be a routine fare. Anyone who saw the trailer would have guessed that Nani is killing people for a strong reason. And V reaches that point in the most predictable way possible. Nani’s introduction and the consequent challenge to Sudheer’s character seems interesting. But the narration falls flat with Sudheer’s character never seeming to be potential enough to stop Nani from killing the next person.

Sudheer’s romance track with Nivetha Thomas only made his character weaker. Nani doesn’t have much to do besides killing people using different techniques. Hence, the director inserted a couple of comedy scenes in between and Nani had fun doing those. The actual idea of the film is to present it as a cat and mouse game, but it never gets exciting as Nani is always exactly one step ahead of Sudheer. The predictability of Nani’s backstory is the biggest drawback of V. Director Indraganti Mohana Krishna comes up with a poorly written back story that is neither engaging nor emotional. The army episode is thrown in just to make the killer’s character authentic for being one step ahead of the cops. V is a crime thriller that is different from his previous films. V has an interesting plot, but it is poorly developed with many absurd and some downright silly scenes. Thaman’s background score is loud but captivating. Cinematography is top notch and the action sequences makes the movie to next level. Editing is also up to the mark. And dialogues are also good. Production values are decent.Nani does his best to make V an engaging fare with his performance. Sudheer Babu gets as equal if not more footage as Nani and he makes sincere effort to do justice to his character. Aditi Rao Hydari appears in a guest role and Nivetha Thomas plays a character that doesn’t make any sense. Vennela Kishore, Naresh, and Tanikella Bharani are the notable actors among others.On the whole V is a decent thriller with typical storyline.”
