,Dhruva gives ultimate experience to those who didn't watch its original and to those who watched original can watch it again because of its masterpiece screenplay.
Dhruva (2016): If you ask most of the film about their best movies of 2015,they will surely have Thani Oruvan in their list (including mine).Thani Oruvan is one of the best movies with best mind game between hero and villain in recent times.When Ram Charan announced that he is keen on doing a remake with Surender Reddy as director,most of the fans of original doubted about the remake.When the teaser was out, it did feel like he tried to do something different.How is this remake??
Plot: Dhruva (Ram Charan) a newly recruited IPS officer makes friends with like-minded police officers during the training period, who take time off during training period and silently go about helping police catch the criminals.Dhruva's supreme officer's daughter Ishika (Rakul) loves him but he doesn't show much interest in romance. When she confronts him and asks about his disappearing from time to time, Dhruva reveals that he has a secret hide-away from where he tries to hunt various criminals based on newspaper reports.During his chase, he figures out that one scientist named Siddharth Abhimanyu (Aravind Swamy) operates through a huge network of criminals, corporate biggies and politicians. Dhruva takes up the challenge of exposing the scientist. What happens next?Did Dhruva reached his goal of eliminating crime?
1)Story and Screenplay: Dhruva is a faithful remake of Thani Oruvan.Except few scenes,most of the movie is a ditto of Thani Oruvan including dialogues.We can easily see that Surender Reddy tried nothing new such that originality's essence is maintained.He is highly successful in that.Screenplay of this movie moves at fast pace and we never get bored.Even the one who watched Thani Oruvan will never get bored in Dhruva because of the gripping screenplay by Mohan Raja and Subha.
2)Performances: Thani Oruvan/Dhruva entirely belongs to Aravind Swamy who played the antagonist rule Sidharth Abhimanyu.The film is dominated by the presence of the movie's villain, played by Aravind Swamy. The role he gets to play is charismatic and the handsome actor has performed it impeccably. Aravind Swamy carries off his role in style. In fact, his role is colorful and his act makes it very interesting. Ram Charan gave his career best performance after Orange.He has shown great efforts to play his role perfectly.Rakul is beautiful.Posani got good role after a long time.
3)Music: Hip Hop Thamizha's songs are decent but scored big with their brilliant background score.They used the original's Siddharth Abhimanyu's theme music which is remarkable.Dhruva's theme which is different from original is very good.
4)Editing: The splitting of screen in second half created a huge impact in engaging us into the movie.
1)Duration: Though we may never get bored,movie's duration seems lengthy with 2hr45min duration.
So,Dhruva gives ultimate experience to those who didn't watch its original and to those who watched original can watch it again because of its masterpiece screenplay.
My rating 7/10 (Definitely a 10/10 for those who didn't watch the original)
