National Award winning actor Dhanush is popular in Tollywood too with his dubbing films. His last release Thiru became a silent success in Telugu. Now, for the first time he is coming with a straight Telugu film SIR which was made as a proper Telugu – Tamil bilingual. Directed by Venky Atluri Produced by Naga Vamsi and Soujanya. Let’s see how SIR turns out to be.q


Bala Gangadhar Tilak alias Balu (Dhanush) who is a young lecturer works in a corporate college run by businessman Srinivas Tripathi (Samuthirakani). In order to completely disarm Government Education System he made a pact with Government which looks like he is helping rebuild the already broken Government Colleges by sending his faculty to teach free. Balu comes to Siripuram Government College. But, he is on a mission to save education and serve it for free without commercialising it. How did he managed to win in his battle against Tripathi and how he faced the hurdles in his journey forms the rest of the story for SIR.


SIR is totally shouldered by Dhanush with his one man show. He lived in his role and tomce again showed why he is termed as top-class actor. He is comfortable and confident posing genuine emotions which makes us feel them and root for him. He has displayed a wonderful performance and carries the core emotion convincingly.

Samyuktha looks good in her limited role as a female lead. Samuthirakani as baddie is apt and did his part. Saikumar brings his experience and carried his part well. Hyper Aadi succeeded in providing comic relief.





Production Values


Feels Predictable At Times


Director Venky Atluri this time comes with a social problem that can be relatable to everyone. He has written and narrated the story in an honest manner backed wonderfully by Dhanush. Though the film has an usual template and suffers with predictability at times, it works well when it comes to engage with well executed emotions. Dialogues came out very well enhancing the sequences delivering desired output. The first half is decent with establishing plot and introducing all characters. The second half scores well with impressive emotional scenes. 

The music by GV Prakash is good especially the soothing Mastaru Mastaru song. But the BGM is what scores the maximum points. Cinematography by Yuvraj is impressive. Production values by Sitara Entertainment’s and Fortune Four Cinemas are good and their uncompromising attitude brings the film an authentic late 90’s look. 

Rating: 3.5 / 5

Bottom-line: Dhanush’s Solid Show In Emotional Rollercoaster Ride
