Daruvu (2012) Telugu Film Review Aggregator
Daruvu: Sound of Mass is a socio-fanatasy Telugu film written and directed by Siva, produced by Burugupalli Siva Rama Krishna under Sri Venkateswara Entertainments banner and starring Ravi Teja and Taapsee Pannu in lead roles. The film that has been released has opened to mostly negative reviews.
Rediff opines that its more sound than substance: “Daruvu may be lapped up by Ravi Teja fans but others may find it pretty dreary. If the tagline ‘Sound of Mass’ means that it’s right for the masses, then it’s got that right; a discerning audience won’t find anything to cheer about.”
IBN Live calls it noisy: “There is no place for emotions here. The entire film is an exercise in fakery. The scene where Brahmi is tortured by the villains, who make him perform difficult steps, is the defining moment of ‘Daruvu’. The scene packs Daruvu’s flavour and tastelessness.”
NDTV Movies reminds you that you could watch it if you have nothing else to do: “What can you expect from a film that has Vidya Balan being played by a male actor? Titters? No. Tedium? Plenty. Daruvu suffers from gaps in reason and logic. As a socio fantasy film, it lives on as a punch line of bad movie jokes.”
