Dookudu is a generous sprinkling of comedy. The dialogues with that extra ‘punch’ suit Mahesh perfectly. Worth a watch, especially for Mahesh Babu fans.

Movie Review: Mahesh Babu, the superstar of Tollywood, has not had a hit since "Pokiri", which released almost five years ago. Now, the star makes a big comeback with his cop act in Srinu Vytla's slick flick, "Dookudu".

Shankar Narayana (Prakash Raj) is a local leader who always helps the poor. When a truck collides with the car his brother and he are in, Shankar goes into a coma. But the rest of the world thinks he is killed in that accident, except his family. His son, Ajay (Mahesh Babu), is a cop in Mumbai who fights against the mafia. When he heads to Turkey to nab a mafia leader, he meets Prashanthi (Samantha), daughter of Ajay's senior police officer and soon falls in love with her.

When he returns to India, he finds out that his father's accident was planned by a mafia leader Naik (Sonu Sood). Ajay wants to take revenge on Raju Naik. Meanwhile, Shankar Narayan is out of coma, but doctors warn that he will go back to that state if he ever hears any shocking news. So, Ajay has to keep him happy, even as he plots to kill the mafia don.

"Dookudu" is a typical Srinu Vytla film with a generous sprinkling of comedy. His narrative manages to keep the audience engaged until the end of the movie. The dialogues with that extra 'punch' suit Mahesh perfectly. Kudos to Kona Venkat who penned the dialogues.

Mahesh carries the film all the way with his performance. Whether he's playing the tough cop or emoting as the sensitive son — the actor shines in ever scene. His dialogue delivery and mannerisms continue to impress — a few dialogues that he delivers in the Telangana accent is commendable and so are his comic scenes. The scene where Mahesh Babu talks about Samantha, without knowing that she is hearing, is to watch out for.

Samantha looks beautiful and has done a great job, though her role isn't too lengthy. Prakash Raj is brilliant as usual. The scenes with both Prakash Raj and Mahesh Babu are very emotional.

Like in his earlier films, Srinu Vytla brings in Brahmanandam for the laughs. Along with MS Narayana, the comedian manages to do just that. Sonu Sood, who plays a baddie again, plays his part
effortlessly. Subbaraju and Sayaji Shinde are good in their roles.

The music manages to impress and so does KV Guhan's cinematography — the movie looks very stylish.
This movie comes as a blessing for not just Mahesh Babu, but also for Tollywood, which is badly in need of a hit, after the recent spate of box office debacles. Srinu Vytla and Mahesh Babu have come out with a winner in "Dookudu".
