Hyderabad: Naga Shaurya and Ketika Sharma starrer 'Lakshya' hit the screens on Friday. Here's the review.
Story: Pardhu (Naga Shaurya) is an archer. Recognizing his talent and love for archery, his grandfather (Sachin Khedekar) puts all his savings and earnings to enroll Pardhu in Hyderabad's best archery academy. Soon, Pardhu becomes a state champion and makes his grandfather proud. But when his grandfather passes away, Pardhu turns to drugs. Will he come back to his senses and continue the sport his grandfather loved? How he does that forms the crux of the story.
Naga Shaurya has taken on the entire film on his shoulders and is the biggest asset. The transformation he underwent for the role will leave the fans awestruck. He pulls off the action sequences really well.
Jagapathi Babu and Sachin Khedekar have also done a good job. The two are definitely a boon to the film. Ketika Sharma, too, has given a good performance.
Director Santosh has done his research on the game and it shows. For those who know nothing about the game, 'Lakshya' will definitely come as an eye-opener. It would have done the film good if Santosh had focused on how the matches are played and what a person has to go through to win the championship. But instead, an audience is served unnecessary drama which could have been avoided.
Shaurya has put in a lot of effort to step into the shoes of Pardhu but Santosh has managed to send the message that it is the sport that is bigger.
