A thrilling journey of love, revenge, and redemption. Directed by the talented Maruthi Dasari, this film is a perfect blend of action, drama, and romance, and it will keep you hooked till the very end. The music and cinematography are also top-notch, with the songs and background score enhancing the film's emotional impact, and the stunning visuals capturing the beauty of the Telugu countryside.

There is no denying that Dasara, the directorial debut of Srikanth Odela, is a mixed bag. On the one hand, the movie is aesthetically compelling, the characters appear like they have more to offer, and the atmosphere gives off the impression that everything is going to fall apart. On the other side, Srikanth introduces issues that he either never completely develops or, worse still, ties up in a hurried manner. Because of this, you take the sucker punches hard and the others don't.

Veerlapally is the location. Here, drinking at the Silk Bar (named for the owner's adoration of Silk Smitha) is a ritual rather than an addiction. Despite the fact that everyone contributes money to the bar, casteism is pervasive, therefore not everyone is allowed inside. To the dismay of the village's ladies, the males don't appear to care. Due to the village's coal mine, everyone seems to always be covered in a layer of soot. Power struggles between Rajanna (Sai Kumar), Shivanna (Samuthirakani), and Shivanna's son Chinna Nambi (Shine Tom Chacko) occur, but the person in charge of the alcohol always prevails. Dharani (Nani) has had many phobias since she was a young child. In awkward situations, he prefers to be quiet, and as a child, he had trouble controlling his pee if he hears a cat scream nearby. When Dharani's grandmother informs him one day that she drinks to combat fear, no one is surprised to see him with bottles hanging from his waist at all times. His closest friend is Suri (Deekshith Shetty), for whom Dharani will stop at nothing. Even if doing so means 'giving up' his love for Vennela (Keerthy Suresh), who equally has eyes only for Suri. Dharani and his band of misfits are drawn into something bigger despite their desire to steal coal from trains, drink themselves to death, and be left alone in their antics. As a problem grows, secrets are exposed, and the death count rises, Dharani will have to learn to face his concerns on his own without the support of Suri and booze.

This may or may not result in scenes that hold your attention throughout. Some are too heavy, some don't keep your interest, and the much-anticipated tune Chamkeela Angeelesi suddenly appears out of nowhere. Additionally, he doesn't delve far enough into several of the subjects he examines.

But when Srikanth performs, he does it with complete assurance. Dasara has a few scenes that you remember long after the movie is over. The pre-interval is tense; it doesn't have the typical "interval bang," so you're not sure what will happen next. The director goes full throttle and won't hold back, creating a climactic and gory climax. Both the dramatic, uplifting scenes and, for the most part, the poignant ones are effective. women suffer in this world because, In this reality, women suffer as a result of men's decisions, but they also occasionally have a voice. Nani devotes his blood, sweat, and tears to the role of Dharani. 

This movie, which is likely his heaviest to date after Jersey, he carries on his shoulders. In some scenes, Keerthy Suresh does quite well; in others, not so much. When she's dancing, she's a treat to see, but when she behaves hammy in a crucial situation, it irritates you. Shine Tom Chacko has the opportunity to become insane, but without that chance, he feels squandered. The same is true for Samuthirakani and Sai Kumar. Deekshith and Poorna both perform their roles well. The film benefits greatly from the cinematography by Sathyan Sooryan and the soundtrack by Santhosh Narayanan.

Overall, "Dasara" is a must-watch for Telugu cinema lovers, and it will undoubtedly leave you feeling inspired and entertained. With its compelling storyline, excellent performances, and breathtaking visuals, it's no surprise that this film has become a box office hit. So, grab your popcorn and get ready for an unforgettable cinematic experience.

Final Score- [7/10]
