Director Sujeeth's Telugu, Hindi, Tamil and Malayalam movie Saaho starring Prabhas and Shraddha Kapoor, has got mixed review and rating from audience, as it failed to meet their expectations.
Saaho is an thriller film and director Sujeeth has written the story, screenplay and dialogues for the movie, which has been produced by Vamsi Krishna Reddy, Pramod Uppalapati and Bhushan Kumar under their banners UV Creations and T-Series. The flick has received a U/A certificate from the censor board and its runtime is 2.30 hours.
Saaho movie story: It is about undercover officer Ashok Chakravarthy (Prabhas), who is investigating a 2,000 crore robbery. Along with Amirta (Shraddha Kapoor), he is chasing thief Jai (Neil Nitin Mukesh), whose robbery is linked to Waaji City that has heavily armed underworld don Roy (Jackie Shroff) and his rival Devraj (Chunkey Pandey). How Ashok uses an arsenal of weapons to battle the gang forms the crux of its story.
Analysis: Saaho starts on a grand note in Waaji City, but a parallel story that takes place in India is dull. The first half is completely flat except for good twist before interval. But the second half has confusing screenplay that bores you to the core. The climaxing is saving grace. Director Sujeeth has failed to handle this high budget film due to his cliched story and flat narration, say the audience.
Performances: Prabhas has delivered an electrifying performance, which is the highlight of Saaho. Shraddha Kapoor has done good acting and her chemistry with the hero is one of the attractions. Neil Nitin Mukesh, Jackie Shroff, Vennela Kishore, Murali Sharma, Arun Vijay, Prakash Belavadi, Evelyn Sharma, Lal, Chunky Pandey, Mandira Bedi, Mahesh Manjrekar and Tinnu Anand have also done justice to their roles, say the audience.
Technical: Saaho has brialliant production values, which are on par with the Hollywood standards. Ghibran's brilliant background score, R Madhi's grand visuals, amazing choreography of action and chase scenes, beautiful art direction, locales and VFX works are the attractions on the technical front, add the viewers.

#Saaho Below average 1st half. Average 2nd half half. Positives: High production values, BGM. Negatives : Weak Story & Screenplay, ,avg songs,Confusing, Tiresome. #Prabhas & @ShraddhaKapoor Did well but of no use. Go with least expectations. Dir @sujeethsign Fails Ratings ⭐⭐1/2
#Saaho is a cinematic marvel which has the style as well as the substance.The VFX & Action Stunts is something which has not been watched on Indian screens ever. At the BO, it is a sure shot blockbuster and will set new benchmarks in the days to come. Highly recommended! ⭐⭐⭐⭐
