Nara Rohit has been trying to do something different since his first film Banam, but he hasn’t been having much success. Though his efforts are being appreciated. He is now back with yet another action entertainer Asura. Directed by Krishna Vijay, this film has hit the screens today. Let’s see how it is.

Dharma Teja (Nara Rohit) is a sincere jailer who always abides by the law. One fine day, a dreaded convict named Charlie(Ravi Varma) is brought to the jail to undergo his death sentence.
Twist in the tale arises when Charlie plans something big and decides to escape his hanging. How does Charlie go about it ? and Whether Dharma manages to stop him from escaping his sentence forms the rest of the story.

Nara Rohith is intense in the role of a powerful cop. His body language and dialog delivery stands out. He is believable in the role of a jailer who goes to any end for the sake of justice. Priya Benarjee has limited scope in the film and she did alright. Ravi Varma got a meaty role. His performance is neat without any flaws. Most of the remaining starcast are either television artists or little known actors. They have done what they can within their limitations.

Technical Aspects:
Asura is quite high on technical aspects. Camera work is outstanding and gives the film a rustic look. The locations chosen for the jail surroundings and the entire set up looks outstanding. Music is good and goes with the flow of the film. Screenplay is the biggest asset and the crisp run time helps matters much.
Dialogues need a special mention as they have been written with a lot of depth. Editing is decent but a song and certain fights could have been trimmed a bit. Coming to the director Krishna Vijay, he has done a wonderful job of sticking to his plot and narrating the film in an gripping manner. The way he executes this unique script keeping in check with the commercial aspects is impressive.

Few hiccups in Second Half

Nara Rohit once again proves his taste for different cinema and brings us a gripping thriller. Interesting story line, taut screenplay and a racy first half are huge assets for this film. If you manage to ignore the small hiccups during the second half and go with no expectations, Asura will be a very unique and interesting experience for all those who like watching intense thrillers.

Verdict: Intense Cop Thriller
