Can he take on Jahangir? Will he win Anaga’s hand?
Akatayi is a commercial potboiler with romance, action, comedy and family drama in backdrop. Story starts of in romantic mode and takes emotional turn. First half passes smoothly with some comedy. Hero’s character is well established. Romantic episodes also are interestingly dealt.
Twist in the tale comes in the interval. Second half gets emotional with hero seeking his true identity and truth about his parents. However, screenplay goes off the track from pre-climax and the connection is lost. The film has good productional values. Brahmanandam appears in a brief role
Manisharma’s background score is biggest asset. Item song is good. Cinematography is average. Aashish does a decent job for first film. Ruksar looked pretty but has to improve on expressions for longevity. Pradeep Rawat is apt in his role. Experienced actors like Suman and Pradeep Rawat excel in their roles.
Interesting first half
Bottom-line: Half-baked entertainer
