Hyderabad: Pegged as India’s biggest action thriller, ‘Saaho’ gets into the action mode pretty early on. Enters the film’s leading man, Prabhas, with a loud, high-octane fight scene that sets the stage for many more such confrontations. His dialogue delivery seems deliberately slow, but for most part, the way his character unfolds, it keeps the viewer guessing. Shraddha Kapoor looks glamorous, but her character is poorly sketched. Even the chemistry between the lead pair is missing. Among the many villains, Chunky Pandey as Devraj stands out with a very convincing portrayal of his evil character. Thanks to the action choreography by internationally acclaimed stunt directors like Peng Zhang and Kenny Bates. The film’s second half picks pace, but is marred by a weak narrative that requires constant suspension of disbelief. Overall, ‘Saaho’ attempts at being a potboiler that fires in all directions to entertain the audience. There are so many twists and turns that it leaves you more exhausted than excited.
