After an impressive show in his previous outing as Gona Ganna Reddy (Rudramadevi), Allu Arjun joins hands with a formidable team for an action drama film Sarrainodu. From the director (Boyapati Srinu) of Legend and Simha, comes another commercial potboiler for this summer.

Geetha Arts has funded this venture which also features the likes of Rakul Preet Singh, Catherine Tresa, Aadhi, Srikanth and Brahmanandam among others in the cast list. The cast sheet looks star-studded and aptly picked, especially the inclusion of Adhi as a baddie proves to be pretty effective.

With a combination like this, one expects some no-holds-barred entertainment with appropriate elements to please just about every type of audience.Sarrainodu is action/love film which talks about an ex-army officer who get on a mission to save a girl from a dirty gang headed by Chief Minister's son.

Allu Arjun sets the tone of the film. He is one actor who has the natural inclination to fit into any character, be it as a massy tough action hero or a cranky fun energetic performer. He has underplayed his cranky self here to fit into the character. Sarrainodu allows Bunny to showcase his skill facets. His dance moves in the much loved 'blockbuster' track deserve a mention.

The songs do not actually set the racy tempo, they do come in as a hindrance but they are still foot tapping.

The production values of Sarrainodu are rich, thanks to Rishi Punjabi's cinematography. We get to witness some great visuals in 'Telusa' song shot at Salt Flat. The editor has put the slow motion technology to good use. It comes in handy especially during the fight scenes.

The core script of the film looks very weak. The screenplay could have been tighter, you get to experience a lot of restless moments in the second half in particular. The triangular love track between Allu Arjun, Rakul Preet and Catherine Tresa could have been handled better. It doesn't carry life. Catherine fills the screen with glam quotient in the first half. But as an MLA you expect her to hold her ground and act a little smarter.

Rakul Preet plays a typical mass film heroine who has very limited screen time and being used mostly for the songs. Actors like Srikanth could have been used better. Bramanandham gives the occasional comedy relief.

Sarrainodu has too many violent fight scenes. The action block around the interval gives you a good rush.The problem with Sarrainodu is that you don't have any great scenes that stay in your mind when you walk out of the theatre.

Verdict: Charismatic screen presence of Allu Arjun makes this clichéd film watchable!
