ABO Review : 'Palasa 1978'
NoImage

By Om


`Palasa 1978` is a Hard-hitting Drama Driven by Caste Conflicts.



Story : 

The Story Begins in a village called Palasa (Srikakulam, AP) in 1978. Two Upper Caste Brothers who are in a cold war with each other continue to suppress the poor. On the other side, fed up with the untouchability and injustice, two other (Poor) brothers revolt against the status quo. Where this leads to and what they have been able to achieve forms the rest.



Performances:

Rakshit shines in a content driven character. Raghu kunche impresses with his meaty role.



Technical Departments:

Music: Okay. Background score is decent.

Cinematography: Good.

Editing: Okay.

Stunts: Simple.




Analysis : 


This is a film (Rich vs Poor) which will evoke contrasting reactions depending on the side one is going sympathise with. It is true that so many horrors have been committed in the past on the poor and downtrodden. The 1st half of the film is a largely good experience but the 2nd half loses steam with a predictable screenplay and hardly has any twists. A better and more dramatised version would have made a big impact but the director seems to have chosen to keep things simple. This is a passable watch and is a honest attempt.



Plus:

1. Rustic Backdrop

2. Characterisations

3. Hard-hitting



Minus:

1. Predictable

2. Mediocre Drama



Movie Rating: 2.75/5 


Box-office Verdict : 

With WW Theatricals at 2 Cr Apx this may not make much impact at the Box-office considering the season and limited appeal.




Ratings :

1 - Stay Away

2 - Poor

2.5 - So-So

3 - Watchable

3.5 - Good

4 - Very Good

4.5 - Outstanding

5 - Out of this World
