Agent Sai Srinivasa Athreya is a film which is making a lot of noise all over. Starring Naveen Polishetty, this film has released today. Let’s see how it is. Story: Athreya(Naveen Polishetty)is a small time detective agent in Nellore who is looking for one big case to make it big in his career. One fine day, he comes across the case of a dead body which has been abandoned near a railway track. Athreya starts his investigation and comes to know that these bodies which are being found have a criminal connection. Rest of the story is as to how Athreya goes in detail and cracks this case. Plus Points: One of the biggest strengths is the subject that has been used for this thriller. The missing cases of dead bodies and how a small time detective gets into it has been thought of well and looks quite novel. Naveen Polishetty makes a solid debut as a solo hero and has potential. His role demanded a lot of variations and fun which had to be done with a straight face and Naveen was pretty good in his role. He cracks the audience up with good comedy and is also very impressive in the serious scenes. Heroine Shruthi Sharma also played her role well and gave good support to the hero. The supporting cast is new but they were on the spot. The manner in which all the twists are revealed is good. The suspense factor has nicely been built up till the last ten minutes. The investigation scenes and how the film is brought to the interval point looks good. Also, the hero’s character is given a comedy angle and that created some decent fun in the film. The locations and production values of the film need a special mention as the film looks appealing throughout. Minus Points: The director drags the film a bit in the last 15 minutes. The suspense is broken by then and just to nab the criminals, the director added many scenes which make the film slow. The film needs some editing as many scenes look long. If it is trimmed by ten minutes things will be very impressive for the audience. Also, things look a bit over the top in certain scenes when a small time agent like Athreya easily takes the help of a cop and does his investigation in his own and easy manner. Technical Aspects: As told earlier, the film is technically sound. The camera work is top notch as the visuals look arresting. The dialogues are good and so was the sound design and background score. The film’s lighting is also apt and brings a lot of seriousness to the proceedings. Coming to the director Swaroop RSJ, he has done a impressive job with the film. It’s very hard to narrate a thriller with good twists and Swaroop has done well with his taut narration. Special mention should go to his detailing which is top class. Every aspect in the case is showcased well and creates a good suspense factor. He is surely a talent to watch out for and if he would have made the last fifteen minutes crisp, things would have been even better. Nevertheless, his way of handling the thriller is quite good. Verdict: On the whole, Agent Sai Srinivasa Athreya is an impressive thriller which has good suspense and taut narration. Naveen Polishetty makes an impact with his lovable performance. Realistic approach and interesting screenplay keeps the viewers engaged. Apart from the slightly dragged last ten minutes, this film has several aspects to make it a gripping watch this weekend. Recommended.

Story: Agent Sai Srinivasa Athreya (Naveen Polishetty) is a brilliant, underrated detective from Nellore who runs an agency called FBI which sees no business. He gets more than what he asked for when a case happens to fall right into his lap out of nowhere. Review: Agent Sai Srinivasa Athreya is a brilliantly executed, no nonsense film which makes it clear from get-go about the kind of story it wants to tell. This is not the kind of film that will pander to a commercial audience, nor is it the kind of film which will allow itself to be diluted with unnecessary tropes. There will be no feel-good moments to make your chest untighten when the gristly core of the story shows it face nor there any relief at the end to make it seem that everything is right in the world. This is exactly why Agent Sai Srinivasa Athreya is the kind of film that needs to be seen with a story that needs to be told. Agent Athreya (Naveen Polishetty) is a detective grieving his dead mother and running a detective agency called FBI (you will want to watch the film to know why it’s named as such) from a vegetable market in Nellore. In the confines of peeling wall paint and flickering bulbs, Agent Athreya and his assistant Sneha (Sruthi) solve cases that are clearly beneath him, but it’s all he can get. He believes his reputation precedes him and his brilliant yet humorous mind yearns for complicated cases. In midst of an un-ideal situation, Agent Athreya happens to chance upon just that – a heart-wrenching case that’s worth his time if only for the grieving father. But as he begins joining the dots, something far more sinister is unearthed. Agent Sai Srinivasa Athreya is the kind of film that acts like a slow burn. You go in expecting a few jokes here and there and maybe a case that’s not as complicated as the one you’re shown, but something that our hero manages to solve and save the day. And that’s how it begins too. The film takes its own sweet time giving you details you don’t know you will need later and setting up characters, especially with Agent Athreya’s backstory. The pace honestly makes one impatient and you truly wonder why you’re being given all these details that have nothing to do with the case at hand. But director Swaroop and Naveen (who co-wrote the screenplay) manage to pull the carpet right from under your feet and you’re left wondering what you just played witness to. To reveal anything more about the tale would be a great injustice, for it is something that truly needs to be seen on-screen. Films like these – a true-blue detective thriller – are usually let down by loopholes, especially when they’re based on crime that takes place in real life every day. Does Agent Sai Srinivasa Athreya have no loopholes? Maybe it does, but Swaroop and Naveen keep you so busy; you really don’t have time to think about it all, even during the draggy bits. Naveen makes a fantastic debut as a lead with this one and truly seems to live in the skin of his character. There’s not one scene that makes you seem like he’s out of place and while he unsurprisingly aces through the humorous bits, it’s the scenes that require him to show emotion that catches you unaware. Shruti as Sneha is really good, but this is Naveen and his character Athreya’s show all the way. Suhas makes an impressive cameo as Detective Bobby, Athreya’s Tamil counterpart. While Swaroop delivers a sound film, Mark K Robin’s music and Sunny Kurapati’s cinematography help set the mood in many scenes. Watch the film this weekend if no-frills detective thrillers are your cup of tea; watch this one ever more so if you’re jonesing for some for something fresh that’ll make you think. You won’t regret it!

Agent Sai Srinivas Atreya grabbed attention with its impressive trailer. The film lives up to the promise and delivers an engaging crime mystery with a charming performance from its lead actor. What is it about? Sai Srinivas Atreya (Naveen) is a private detective who is looking for a big case to become famous. He comes across the case of unidentified deaths that are increasing in number. He comes to know about a young lady who was raped and brutally murdered. Atreya jumps into solve the case knowing little about what is in store for him. Performances: Naveen Polishetty who did a few web series and small characters before has played the lead role in this. It is a very challenging character that is not easy to pull off. Despite his inexperience Naveen does a fabulous job as the leading man. Most of the supporting cast are newcomers or lesser known actors including Shruti Sharma. Everyone besides Naveen has come up with average of mediocre performances. Technicalities: Swaroop RSJ picked up an interesting crime that was never touched in cinema. He has woven an engaging screenplay to make it an engaging murder mystery. The screenplay is complex enough to keep the viewers hooked and guessing all the way. There are a few ups and downs in the narration and a bit of lag in between. Barring few weaknesses, it is a fairly decent job from the young filmmaker. Background score is engaging and on the mark all through. Camera work is not great but okay. Editing could have been better. The film's runtime is not ideal for the genre. A bit of trimming would have made it even more engaging. Production values are decent, but some money should have been spent on the supporting cast. Thumbs Up: Mystery element Atreya characterization Second half Thumbs Down: Excessive runtime Lags here and there Analysis: Agent Sai Srinivas Atreya opens on a funny note with the lead character looking like a clown in the crime scene. Despite being a rookie and appearing a bit comedic, Atreya is intelligent enough to piece the evidences together to solve any crime. He along with his female assistant, Atreya waits for a big case that could make him famous. Finally, he finds one, but things go out of hands as he is dealing with criminals that are hardcore and powerful enough to frame him. As Atreya tries to solve the mystery everything points to an unidentified death on a railway track. Now Atreya starts digging into it and he becomes the prime target for the mysterious criminals. Atreya uncovers some shocking truths about the unidentified deaths, which also affected him personally. How does Atreya and his team finds out the real culprits behind the crimes in an elaborate and engaging fashion forms crux of the story. This genre has been explored before, but not enough due to the complexity involved. The director is successful in finding the right crime for his script and he has woven a very engaging screenplay around it with a charming lead character. There is a shade of Chantabbai and Sherlock Holmes in the characterization of Atreya. It is a mix of both. Entire story revolves around Atreya and Naveen has done a wonderful job in holding it together. There is a lot of time spent on the buildup before Atreya finds the right case. It turns out a bit boring in the beginning, but the second half is paced better with thrilling sequences and an unpredictable villain. The crime itself is given a lot of space to be explained. There are a few lags in between that could have been avoided. On a whole, Agent Sai Srinivas Atreya is an engaging mystery that keeps you guessing and interested for its most part. Verdict: Arresting Detective Thriller!
