Govind Bhargav (Bomman), a business tycoon is killed and his wife Indrani (kushbu) has to lead his empire. Abhikshit (Pawan Kalyan) who leads an anonymous live is called to sort out her problems. Abhikshit suspects that Varma (Rao Ramesh) and Sharma (Murli Sharma), the insiders of the company to be behind the coupe.
Abhikshit joins as an employee into the company by crook. He gets close to Suryakantam (Anu) and Sukumari(Keerthy) daughters of Varma and Sharma in the process of cracking the mystery. Abhikshit zeroes in on Seetharam(Aadi pinnisetty) who is a board member of the company as the mastermind of the crime. How Abhikshit saves the company from evil cluteches of Seetharam and teaches him a lesson is the plot of Agnathavasi.
It has been alleged that Agnathavasi storyline is lifted from French film Largo Winch, The Heir Apparent. The film has pretty similarities. Screenlay is ambiguous, with uneven sequence and is too predictable.
First half is all about how Pawan and his gang Tanikella bharani(Uncle), Srinivas Reddy and others tricking to get him into the company. Romancing both the heroines and the chartbuster 4 songs will be over by interval. Some fun is generated as Pawan fools Varma and Sharma. Of course, Vennela Kishore plays Brahmanandam kind of Bakra role here. Second half deals with flashback revealing the real identity of Abhikshit Bhargav. Sampatraj plays the investigative officer narrating the flashback.
Kodaka Koteswar Rao song brings sigh of relief and raises few whistles. The film gets flat from pre-climax. There is no comparison to the magical climax of Attharintiki Daaredi. Characters appear halfbaked and neither of them are connecting No emotion is fulfilling and the film leaves one in underwhelming tone.
Pawan Kalyan’s screen presence is something to look out for. His funny antics with femine flavor may receive mixed response. Keerthy Suresh and Anu Emmanuel didn’t have much of a role except to come in for songs. Rao Ramesh and Murli Sharma provide much needed comedy to the movie. Agnathavasi can be termed Trivikram’s weakest script work till date. His mark dialogues are also sparingly included.
BGM is fresh and classy, but that hero mass pulse for hero swag is missing. Chart buster songs have sent benchmark so high that the making didn’t match audience imagination. Cinematography is of decent quality. Editing is terrible with abrupt scenes and the sequence seems to have lost.
Bottom-line : Plan B – Biscuit!
“Coming from crazy combination of Pawan Kalyan and Trivikram, Agnathavasi has been riding on high expectations. Fans have been expecting magic of Attharintiki Daaredi to repeat but Agnathivasi falls short of the expectations. Hardcore Powerstar fans may enjoy some moments of the film but common audience may get disappointed with the film’s lackluster content. Over all, the film is a one time watch for Sankranthi season if you are a movie buff.”
