Since many years we have been idolizing the heroes and heroines of movies, less the characters and more the people who portray them. Of late, "watch movie as a movie" has been trending. And if we have to watch movies as movies, we must realize that every story need not have a hero but every story has a protagonist. Not just heroes have stories but an alcoholic could have a more intense story which deserves to be told. One such is narrated in an unbelievably convincing way in the movie "Arjun Reddy".
"Suffering is personal. Let him survive it" - This is one of my favorite dialogues from the movie. Vijay Devarakonda, who played the role of male protagonist of the movie, has done a commendable job; he has given an award-winning performance! Back ground score is awesome and to-the-mood. Appreciate the characterization of "Shiva", portrayed brilliantly by Rahul. Female lead's characterization is understandably not depicted to the depth, as the story is narrated from the male lead's perspective. The unconventional climax sequence steals the show!
Watch this movie. Don't miss it. Just like idolizing the heroes does not help, judging the protagonists does not help too. Go for the movie, if u haven't yet.
