Sarkaru Vaari Paata Review: Mahesh Babu’s Latest Is A Wholesome Entertainer

Sarkaru Vaari Paata is directed by Parsuram Petla and stars Mahesh Babu, Keerthy Suresh, Vennela Kishore, Sowmya Menon and Subbaraju.

TELUGU cinema’s blockbuster man Mahesh Babu arrived in the theaters this Friday with his latest mega-action film Sarkaru Vaari Paata. Directed by Parasuram Petla, the movie is an out-an-out masala entertainer and is hands down a Mahesh Babu show.

A mix of action and comedy, the political drama revolves around the central character, Mahesh Babu’s Mahi. He is a private moneylender who collects the dues from those who get loans. Soon he meets Kalaavathi, played by Keerthy Suresh, the Vizag’s big shot Rajendranath’s daughter.

Mahi finds himself in a fix when Kalaavathi plays him and gets his money to repay her gambling debts.

Determined to collect his money back, the light-hearted rom-com turns into a story of vengeance when Mahi finds out that Rajendranath had a role in his parents’ death.

Setting out on the path to find answers and justice, the movie talks about the growing menace of rich people defaulting on bank loans, the nexus that enables such crimes and how it affects the common man.

Director Parasuram attempts to present a fan-centric yet message-driven wholesome entertainer. Stepping out of his zone of the quintessential rom-coms like Geetha Govindam and Srirastu Subhamastu, the director successfully mixes action with lots of humor in this film. 

The storyline seems stretched at a runtime of 2 hours and 30 minutes, but this one is purely for the Telugu superstar, Mahesh Babu’s fans, who’ll not worry much about anything else apart from their idol.

The action sequences are not A+, but Thaman’s background music definitely keeps the adrenaline flowing.

Coming to the performances, Mahesh Babu’s looks, body language, and dialogue delivery will sway away his fans. He is back in full form and nails it with his comic timing. Vennela Kishore and Mahesh Babu’s duo gets it right yet again and their combination will definitely work for the audiences.

Keerthy Suresh looks effortlessly stunning in every frame. Her chemistry with Mahesh Babu is convincing but doesn’t get a strong character arc or a stand-out act. 

Somwya Menon is convincing, natural and delivers a decent act, while Subbaraju shines bright in the second half.

With songs like Kalaavathi and Ma Ma Mahesha, Mahesh Babu once again proves his boyish charm and nails it with his dance steps.

Sarkaru Vaari Paata is a complete masala entertainer filled with action, comedy, romance and drama with a meaningful theme. Trust Mahesh Babu to keep you and deliver a power-packed performance.

Sarkaru Vaari Paata is now streaming in theaters in Telugu.
