Lengthy run time
Allu Arjun does a good job and pull off his character as wicked smuggler with his mass avatar. His body languages and way of dialogue delivery in Chittor dialect are superb. He involves in all the department of entertainment and steals the show. He shows fire in his eyes and his body language is commendable. Sunil performs well and justifies with his role. Rashmika Mandanna is average and she is present only for entertainment. Fahadh Faasil presence is wasted in this first part. The Kannada actor, Dhananjay is ok. Anasuya Bharadwaj is fine.
The plot sometimes travels in the predictable lines. The dialogues in Pushpa: The Rise are good. The song are composed by Devi Sri Prasad and impresses the audiences with catchy tune. The background score is superb that elevates the mass level. Cinematography work is mind blowing and the major asset of the movie. The high voltage action sequences are really appreciable and fantastic. The production value of Mythri Movie Makers are superb and they did not compromise with the quality of the movie. The plot sometimes travels in the predictable lines.
Analysis: Overall, Pushpa: The Rise falls short of expectations given the hype around the movie.
