What Is Good
- Pooja's glam
- Rich Production values
What Is Bad
- Beaten to death plot
Bellamkonda Sai Sreenivas is excellent as far as dances and stunt sequences are concerned but have a long way to go in terms of acting, as he fails in emotional sequences and mouths dialogues with deadpan expressions, especially the romance scenes. Pooja Hegde plays the typical eye candy to perfection and it is her glam that's the USP of Saakshyam, as she goes all out flaunting her curves generously. Sarathkumar and Meena play cliched roles, and so does the evil trio of Jagapathi Babu, Ashutosh Rana and Ravi Kishan who have played similar roles umpteen times before, and they sleepwalk through the stereotypical roles. The rest of the cast including Vennela Kishore is adequate.
Music by Harshavardhan Rameshwar elevates several sequences while it's loud and jarring for the most part. None of the songs Barring Soundarya Lahari are appealing. Cinematography by Arthur Wilson is an asset to Saakshyam, as he has captured the exotic locales and presented the CG supported action sequences to perfection. Sriwass has this time opted to present the usual revenge plot however with the only difference being the supernatural element of the hero being helped by forces of nature. However, the plot is as old as hills, and the way nature is presented to help the hero reminds us more of devotional flicks like Ammoru more than an action thriller. The first half moves at a leisurely pace with cliched sequences and Taking own sweet time till the pre-interval to get into the plot.
Tamanna enters Sye Raa Milky beauty Tamannaah, who had not been bagging many offers in any language, be it Tamil or Telugu, and last seen in the Tamil flick Sketch with Chiyaan Vikram, besides dancing in item songs in films like Jaguar, Jai Lava Kusa, will next be seen in 'Kanne Kalaimaane'.
