Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo, aka AVL, is a perfect family entertainer for Sankranthi and I enjoyed the movie throughout. The story is of AVL is a mixture of many films and I felt it is the first time Trivikram excelled as a director more than dialogue writer.

Trivikram took a simple commercial plot and made it into a good entertainer with his Midas touch, which was visually elevated by the magician PS Vinod. Thaman is another main man in providing multiple chartbusters and a sold background score.
Alu Arjun is good as, I will keep his name suspense as I really enjoyed that particular scene, and this type of character is a cakewalk for Allu Arjun. Another main character in the movie is played by Murali Sharma.
Even though the movie had the main villain in terms of Samuthirakani, who lacked the screen presence of an antagonist, I felt Murali Sharma is the main villain and he excelled in the role. Pooja Hegde is mostly limited to songs and the first half and I would watch the movie again for Samajavaragamana song.
Sushanth’s character is important to the film but it is limited to very few scenes, I mean he has literally no dialogues in the first half and the same is the case of Nivetha Pethuraj. The rest of the cast is simple to present grandeur to the respective scenes. The good ok and bad parts are:
• Art direction
• Climax Fight with Song
• The star-studded cast got very limited screen time
• Samuthirakani Character could haven been cast better
Finally, a good Sankranti family entertainer.
