Vijay Deverakonda Keeps getting better with each movie
Rashmika Mandanna did her best
First Half Barring Few Lags
Vijay Deverakonda & Rashmika Chemistry
Boring Second Half
Poetic Narration Slows down the pace
Lengthy Run Time
No High Points
Overall Dear Comrade is easily one of the most awaited films in the recent times. With interesting promos, melodious songs, there were high expectations on the move. Mythri Movie Makers, who were going through some rough patch recently also pinned high hopes on this film to get back onto success streak again. Coming to the film, Bharat Kamma had a good script at hand and tried to narrate in a genuine and realistic way, he started off well in the first half and lost track in 2nd half with story moving at snails pace. Mythri’s production values are good and BGM needs a special mention. Though songs are not chartbusters BGM is definitely good. Overall, Dear Comrade is a typical love-hate-love movie with nothing to rave about except the lead pair’s performances.
