Anaganaga O Dheerudu is a mythological drama filmed in visual spleandour that will appeal to all sections of the audience.
The soul of a witch Irendri (Manchu Lakshmi) has an iron grip over a tear drop shaped land known as Sangha Rashtra. Agartha, a village in this land, is terribly affected by the evil powers of Irendri. The only way for protection for the village is to bring a child Moksha (Harshitha) from Pushpa Giri who is endowed with divine powers. A blind warrior Yodha (Siddhartha) is the body guard of Moksha.
Priya (Shruthi Haasan) is the great grand daughter of Irendra. She falls in love with Yodha. Priya wears a locket Kalanetri which has the soul of Irendra locked in it. Irendra kidnaps Priya and Irendra becomes the most powerful queen. She wants to get the powers of immortality and wants to sacrifice Moksha.
The rest of the film deals with how Yodha rescues Moksha and Priya that leads to the climax where the witch Irendra is decimated.
Lakshmi Manchu excels in her performance as the witch. Siddharth gives an energetic performance. But he should have put on 6-pack abs. Shruti Hassan looks glamorous and does well. Harshita is sweet and acts naturally. Ravi Babu and Ramji look impressive in their cameos. All others fit the bill.
The mythological story is treated well and the screenplay makes the narration very interesting. The characters have been etched with near perfection. The special visual effects are extraordinary and add to the spice of the story telling. The dialogues are meaningful. The music enhances the narration values. Cinematography, editing and SFX are of top order. The technical and production values are very high.
Anaganaga O Dheerudu is a veritable visual spleandour. Do not miss to watch the film. Director Prakash Kovelamudi gives a technically superior movie with very good performances.
