Arjun Reddy has created a superb buzz for itself from the past few days. The younger generation is going crazy about the film which has hit the screens yesterday.
Arjun Reddy(Vijay Devarakonda) is a short tempered medical college student who falls in love with his junior Preeti(Shalini). The couple shares a very close relationship for years but later break up as Preeti’s dad gets her married to a boy in her caste.This leaves a very strong and brutal impression on Arjun Reddy who becomes an alcoholic and drug addict. Rest of the story showcases the journey of Arjun Reddy as to how he regains his senses and gets back to normal.
It is completely Vijay’s show right from beginning to end. Vijay Devarakonda has transformed totally from a smart and handsome youngster in ‘Pelli Choopulu’ to obsessive and self-destructive young college student well. He has shown variations in his characterization — a simple young medical student to a self-destructive doctor. He is equally at ease in romantic scenes. This is one of the best performances from a Telugu hero in a long time.
Shalini Pandey impresses us in her debut movie.
Rahul Ramakrishna, Vijay’s close friend in the film is good in performance .
