Shekar Telugu Movie Review


Shekar (Raja Shekar), a retired cop who excels at investigating crime scenes and quickly identifying the perpetrator, enlists the assistance of a current cop to solve a double murder case.

Movie Verdict

Even today, thriller and investigative films never get old, but the plot must be original. Shekar is a remake of Joju George’s superhit Malayalam film Jeseph (2018). I don’t think the makers have revealed that this is a remake anywhere, but those who know Joseph will recognize it. The storyline and character design were brilliant and unique in 2018, but the storyline is not as unique in 2022, and Shekar has a lot of routine investigative scenes, which may have been the film’s flaw.
The film begins well, with a proper protagonist introduction, as the director wasted no time getting into the hero’s world; however, the subsequent story events make viewers wonder if this is a thriller. There are some plot twists and turns in the film, but they do not fit the story well.
Rajashekar’s portrayal of Sheakar is adequate, as we can clearly see that he has aged. Even though the character is an old retired cop, he still needs the energy to investigate, and he appears physically weak while doing so. Shivani Rajashekar, Rajahsekar’s daughter, plays the same character in the film, and she is good in some parts, as is the rest of the cast.
Jeevitha Rajashekar is not a new director, but the way movies are made today has changed dramatically, and she needs to improve because she failed to completely engage the audience. and Mallikarjun Naragani’s cinematography isn’t up to scratch, and Anup Rubens’ music isn’t appropriate for thriller films, but he tried but fell short, and the rest of the technical departments performed admirably.
Finally, Shekar is not for everyone, but if you like thrillers, you might enjoy it.

Movie Rating: 3/ 5
