Director Surender Reddy's Telugu movie Dhruva, starring Ram Charan, Arvind Swamy and Rakul Preet Singh, has received positive reviews from the audience.
Dhruva is an action thriller movie and it is an official remake of hit Tamil film Thani Oruvan, which deals with the story of a police officer, who is hell-bent on arresting a rich and sly criminal. Surender Reddy has made some changes in his adaptation to suit the taste of the local audience.
The audience say Dhruva deals with routine story, but the intelligent screenplay makes it an interesting watch. The movie starts on a slow note, but the narration turns intense and fast-paced towards the interval. The second half of the film has a fast-paced narration and it is high on action quotient. The climax is good.
Ram Charan has a delivered good performance and he impresses the viewers with his macho looks and dare-devil stunts. Arvind Swamy has played the negative role that he essayed in the original and he has done justice to it. His performance is one of the highlights of the film. Rakul Preet Singh has done a good job and her glamour and chemistry with Cherry are highlights. Navdeep, Nasser, Krishna Murali Posani and Sayaji Shinde are also big assets of the film, say the audience.
Allu Aravind, who has produced Dhruva under his banner Geetha Arts, has made sure that the movie has rich production values. Hiphop Tamizha's songs and background score, PS Vinod's picturisation, exotic locales, brilliant action scenes, Vema Reddy's punch dialogues, Nagendra's art direction, Naveen Nooli's editing and amazing dance choreography are the attractions on the technical front, say the audience.
We bring to you some viewers' verdict on the film shared on Twitter and Facebook. Here is the live update of Dhruva movie review by audience:

Solid script is #Dhruva's biggest asset. Charan's terrific makeover and Aravind Swamy's magnificent screen presence make it worth watching.

First half of #Dhruva is cool with a couple of screenplay twists. Ram Charan is perfect as an intense cop and Arvind Swamy is superb! Solid script, engaging screenplay and riveting performances make #Dhruva a nice movie. A definite hit! I haven't seen #ThaniOruvan.

Started slowly towards racy interval.... Minor changes to the original..This Remake is justified so far.... Watchable first half #Dhruva. Suspense reveal scene followed by Neethone dance tonight..... crowd rejoicing, much needed momentum for the movie..... #Dhruva. #Dhruva - a successful and well adopted remake and best movie for Charan after #Magadheera. Forget about Records nd all..he performed well
Nikhil Kosuri @kosunik
#Dhruva RC is back with a bang!A rather ordinary story intelligently narrated by the director & supported by the powerful performance. #Dhruva Hip Hop music direction is a welcome move for the Telugu movie industry which has become repetitive offlate . Good

#Dhruva is a genuine attempt by Surender Reddy. RCT did well, danced 'Neethone' with ease & grace. P.S.Vinod, BGM, Arvind Swamy - God Level.
#dhruva better than expected....Ram Charan screenplay fast and racy, editing could have been better, Rakul
