Decent action entertainer worth watching if you like action.
Intelligent... actually Inttelligent, is pretty much a straightforward action entertainer with a familiar story and plot elements but what carries it forward is the balance it has between action and a decent story apart from the terrific background score by Thaman.
Sai Dharam Tej is decent as an action hero, and carries the film very well. Then we have a lot of other actors who also deliver good performances. Like many similar movies, the first half takes time to arrive at the main point and then picks up pace just before the interval blockade.
The title is not completely justified by the execution but there are moments where it finds justification. It's better not to look for a very fresh story here, but what really attracts one's attention is the fact that the film is inspired by true events.
Nevertheless, the film is entertaining enough to be seen at least once. Even the running time hasn't been stretched much and that's good. The action sequences are all executed very well and the bullet time effects are also excellent. Music by Thaman is melodious, but the songs are placed very randomly, and serve as speed-breakers, especially in the second half.
The film manages to impress with its mix of action, humor and sentiment. If you like action, you can give Intelligent a watch without expecting too much "intelligence" from it.
