Bringing the action to this Dussehra season is Nagarjuna’s much-awaited action thriller ‘The Ghost’. The film has already made a great noise in Tollywood circles for its unique picturizations and exciting stunt choreography. Can the film stand up to the buzz? Will Nagarjuna give a tough fight to Chiranjeevi’s Godfather? Let’s find out
Story: Vikram (Nagarjuna) is an Interpol officer with a great skill set and experience making him one of the best in line. He works along with his girlfriend Priya (Sonal Chauhan) on various cases. While things are going normal, one fine day he receives a call from Anu (Gul Panag) requesting his help to protect her daughter Aditi (Anikha Surendran). How is Vikram related to Anu and Aditi and what kind of danger are they in? This is what the plot follows.
Performances: Looks wise, Nagarjuna seldom disappoints, and here as well he looks quite lean and stylish in the role of an Interpol officer. Through this movie, he has experimented with heavy-duty action sequences and credit must be given to him for carrying them out effectively. Not much can be said about Sonal Chauhan as she is yet again cast in a flower pot role. Gul Panag and others have limited scope as the movie majorly focuses on the action and less on acting.
Analysis: The Ghost is a treat for action lovers. However, even to fit action convincingly, there is a requirement of a solid screenplay which this film fails to deliver. There are moments when you’ll feel the movie to be a montage of action sequences. The story and emotional connect with the film is missing here and a bit more focus on writing could have done wonders to the film.
- Action sequences
- Nagarjuna’s look
- Poor writing
- Story depth
The Ghost gave a great impression when the trailers and first look were released. Sadly, the fun of the movie ends there and there is nothing much to explore beyond the fight scenes. The movie is made for action lovers and if the blasts, chases, blood, and combat don’t excite you, then you can give it a miss.
