Director Trivikram Srinivas' Telugu movie Agnyaathavaasi (Agnathavasi/Agnyathavasi) starring Pawan Kalyan, Keerthy Suresh and Anu Emmanuel has opened mixed reviews and average ratings from the audience. [Slide down to read viewers' response]
Agnyaathavaasi, made with a tagline 'Prince in Exile' is a romantic comedy, which has all the elements to woo the family audience. Trivikram Srinivas has written the script and dialogues for the film, produced by S Radha Krishna under the banner Haarika & Hassine Creations. The film has received a U/A certificate from the censor board and has a runtime of 2 hours 38 minutes.
Story: Agnyaathavaasi is about Govinda Bhargav (Boman Irani), who is a billionaire. The people around him kill him along with his son in a bid to take over his company. But Govinda has an heir Abhishekta Bhargav (Pawan Kalyan), which is brought up in exile by Indrani (Kushboo). How he avenges the death of his father and brother and proves himself the heir to the fortune forms the crux of the story..
Analysis: Trivikram Srinivas has chosen a tried and tested story, and wrote an engaging and entertaining screenplay, which has enough of twists and turns to thrill you. His brilliant characterisation and dialogues will impress you. He is successful in delivering a racy and mass film, say the viewers.
Performance: Power star Pawan Kalyan has delivered good performance and Agnyaathavaasi is his show. His mannerism, dialogue diction and fights are the highlights of the film. Keerthy Suresh and Anu Emmanuel have no scope for acting, but they steal the show with their glamour and chemistry with Pawan.
Aadhi Pinisetty, Boman Irani, Kushboo, Rao Ramesh, Sampath Raj, Tanikella Bharani, Ajay, Vennela Kishore and Raghu Babu have done justice to their roles in Agnyaathavaasi. They are also among the assets of the movie, say the filmgoers.
Technical: Agnyaathavaasi has rich production elements, which make it a visual treat. Manikandan's beautiful cinematography, Anirudh Ravichander's songs and background score and stylish choreography of action and dance, costume designs and art direction are the main attractions on the technical front, say the viewers.

1st half is fun with a very good interval bang. powerstar entrance, the visuals of DhagaDhaga mane visuals...And few comedy scenes ..Pre Interval nundi story started..Any Emmanuel is gorgeous and keerthy suresh is cute.. Excited about 2nd half #AgnyaathavaasiPowerIsOn. I personally liked the 2nd half far better than 1st..it has it heart in the right place and the comedy scenes between pawan-Murali Sharma & rao ramesh are hilarious...and you can feel Trivikram Written all over it in 2nd half #AgnyaathavaasiPowerIsOn #Agnyaathavaasi Agnyaathavaasi follows the typical Trivikram template.we get introduced to a problem and then the movie starts on a lighter note and picks up pace at the inteval. And the story builds and then a preclimax twist and ends with a emotional sequence. #AgnyaathavaasiPowerIsOn (2/4) Major highlights - Introduction sequence. - interval Block Loved entire 2nd half - scenes featuring kushboo gaaru - Kodaka Koteswara rao - murali Sharma & rao ramesh - Climax the Man who is in full form #Powerstar himself. .@anirudhofficial what a debut , you are on fire the songs are excellent and looked good on screen too but I had problem with the placing of those songs . BGM is excellent welcome to tollywood.
#Agnyaathavaasi Interval: Boss man Trivikram is back at it again, terrific staging for a mass hero. He expectedly strikes gold with his dialogues. Mostly enjoyable so far! #Agnyaathavaasi: Passable PSPK25. Has a very good start but then surrenders to the usual comic and revenge tales. Some mass moments here and there, that's it.
Entry Comedy is good as usual. Story is revenge drama. Interval is te high point with anirudh BGm Content unna movie. Good first half #Agnyaathavaasi Movie over. Second half is superb than first half. BLOCKBUSTER for PK fans. HIT for audience. Anirudh's, aaadhi,trivikram, kushbu and PK steels the show..#AgnyaathavaasiStorm

#Agnyaathavaasi 1st Half: #PSPK 's screen presence carrying the movie.. Mass scenes and comedy r good.. Very glossy in the making.. Peaks close to the interval.. @KeerthyOfficial as the traditional heroine is good.. Looking forward to the 2nd half..

#Agnyaathavaasi 1st half - The Revenge theme is established. Lots of comedy scenes with a big group of well-known actors, 4 songs, 2 heroines & an intense pre-interval action block. Follows the tried and tested template... #PSPK #Agnyaathavaasi 2nd half - Liked the #KodakaaKoteswarRao sequence and the mass scenes where #PSPK takes charge. There are also quite a few action scenes where he shows his martial arts prowess. Both @KeerthyOfficial @ItsAnuEmmanuel vie for his love & attention! #Agnyaathavaasi - The beautiful classical #SwagathamKrishna sung by @ninj_r comes in the 1st half as part of @KeerthyOfficial's intro sequence. Used well by #Trivikram

#Agnyaathavaasi first half: Comedy scenes have come out well. Terrific pre-interval stretch. Badly shot songs. Follows the tried and tested template. #PSPK
#Agnyaathavaasi Just watched. Has everything a blockbuster must have and more. May test your patience here and there but it is acceptable .
Average 1st half. Story related content good. Comedy episodes weak. #Agnyaathavaasi #Agnyaathavaasi overall Average Movie. Star Hero cheyalsina subject kadhu. Okay for fans and nothing much for common audience especially masses. Pandaga help chesthe BO daggara kooda Average ayye avakasalunnay. Peddaga Oppositionlu em levuga.
surya bhai @surendra_Bza
Gud 1st half with clean entertainment..kalyan screen presence & dop superb..interval scene anirudh bgm & taking #Agnyaathavaasi
Restaurant fight scene is bit lengthy. Anirudh is killing with his BGM Great find of this industry. His music is backbone of #Agnyaathavaasi. #AgnyaathavaasiStorm Keerthy has little screen space, very little of humour #Agnyaathavaasi #AgnyaathavaasiStorm Chiru gaaru reference. Theater is on fire. Not even bored for a second. #Agnyaathavaasi is engaging. #AgnyaathavaasiStorm Pawan's Company set is Soo real. Both the art director and cameraman did a tremendous job. Abhijith Bhargav will impress you. #Agnyaathavaasi #AgnyaathavaasiStorm
#Agnyaathavaasi First half Sentiments worked out well Terrific interval block Song visuals Story picked after 30 min Director is a genius he used each and every cast to their full potential. Overall : Good First Half! Agnyaathavaasi irst half Director is a genius he mixed emotions with sentiments & created superb hype for mass scenes. Terrific screen play writing. BGM is top class this is how u must render music to a mass hero @anirudhofficial big fan of u bro. What a second half Climax build up scene one of the best I have seen in TFI. I will give 3.5/5 Very good 2nd half Overall : Hit.

Reports From #USA #Agnyaathavaasi 1st half: Filled with action, comedy & emotions. @PawanKalyan at his best. @KeerthyOfficial & @ItsAnuEmmanuel were awesome. BaitikochiChuste & GaaliVaaluga was fantastic. #Agnyaathavaasi - Good 1st half & extraordinary 2nd half. Songs, Fights, Office scenes & Bulgaria chase came out well. BGM was fab. Overall a perfect family entertainer from #Trivikram for the festive season. @PawanKalyan @KeerthyOfficial @ItsAnuEmmanuel
Sushanth Nallapareddy @sushanthreddy
Good opening scene and trivikram style well made interval block saved the till then a pretty pale first half.. #Agnyaathavaasi By far the most uninteresting, boring and flat film trivikram has ever made. Far more weaker than his weakest. Apart for two or three scenes #Agnyaathavaasi is huge disappointment. What a waste. Non of the emotions worked. Aa kullu comedy. Chettha heroines track. Weak villains thread. And most disappointing thing even Pawan Kalyan kooda interested ga anipichala. BGM and interval were only good thing about #Agnyaathavaasi

#Agnyaathavaasi - Good 1st half & extraordinary 2nd half. Songs, Fights, Office scenes & Bulgaria chase came out well. BGM was fab. Overall a perfect family entertainer from pspk ,keerthy anu
Deeply disspointed with @PawanKalyan for the 2nd time after #SardaarGabbarSingh for effortless movies, carelessness. Did not enjoy the Rowdy Alludu Pawan Kalyan version at all being a fan cannot digest that this was the best opportunity we had. #Agnyaathavaasi
Movie is going at slow pace with some funny dialogues here and there. Intro fight bagundi. Fans ki feast. Ippudu Baitikochi Chuste song time #Agnyaathavaasi
Booch Booch ! @TheGDGuy
Kalyaaaaaannn #Agnyaathavaasi Fight scene 1st Fight me sagam poyinchesadu antis ki Super take off #Agnyaathavaasi Khushboo role bagundhi..subtle performance On track so far #Agnyaathavaasi
#Agnyaathavaasi show strated with title card 'Sincere thanks to Venkatesh'. It looks like #Agnyaathavaasi story line is INSPIRED from Largo Winch (Of course with many changes to the characters). More About that by the time of Intermission.
