Artist Performance:

Mahesh Babu is at his best one man show.He is really Dashing & Daring in looks,Dialogue delivery in telanga ascent is excellent,Entertainment scens with Samantha, Bramhanadam,M.S.Narayana fills with laughter in the theater.He is Energetic in action scenes and Dances.

Samantha is Cute her dances are good but not much space on screen she has done well.Prakash Raj as usual done his best for his role .Bramhanandam this time as a greedy house owner who falls in to Maheh trap once again will not disappoint you .M.S.Narayana as a aspirant who want to become a film hero is superb his show reel where he imitates Jr NTR,Ramcharan,Balakrishna is a non stop entertainer.Sonu sood as the Don once agian performed well.Dharamvarapu Subramanyam,Nazar,Vennela Kishore etc are good at their roles.


Director Srinu Vaitla and his team has done thier best for dhookudu project.The movie is partially inspired from the german movie GOOD BYE LENIN(partially is a polite way that it is being freemaked) and many scenes from Vytla's Ready,king and Bollywood' WELCOME,Mahesh telaangana slang is very similar to that of Sri Hari's in KING anyways First half is packed with entertainment and action with two good songs.Second half has entertainment but moves on the with story with two hit songs . Re Recording and music by Thaman is good.Action Scenes are composed well Screenplay is gripping and will not let your attention.

High lights:

Action & Entertainment Packed First half .
Mahesh,Samantha Turky scenes.
M.S.Narayana Show Reel.
Guruvaram Song,Parvathi melton song (Poovai Poovai ).Dhethadi Song are Super Hit Numbers.Dhookudu Title song is ok .
Great applause when NTR speech shown on the screen.
Bramhanandam comedy.

Negatives :

Weak storyline, Runtime,
Samantha wasted,Master Bharath Comedy,Unnecessary scenes

Bottomline:DOOKUDU-- Outdated & Predictable Story , but Full on Entertainer...Mahesh's one man show all the way...First half was carried out well , second half is abit dragged with Vaitla's regular comedy giving way to some boredom. Climax was good in the end... Brahmi & M.S.N's comedy was good. No use of talking about Samantha's role :D

On a whole Movie is definitely one time watch for Normal Audience..

Rating :- 2.75 - 3/5  Verdict - Avg - Abv Avg Range (Depends upon Oseravalli too which is releasing withing 2 weeks)
