Shekar Telugu Movie Review: Twenty years ago, Dr. Rajashekar was a well-known hero, and he still shows up in movies as a hero today. Shekar, his most recent movie, has made a lot of noise in the Telugu Film Industry. Due to the pandemic, the movie’s release kept getting pushed back, but on May 20, 2022, it finally came out. The movie has gotten some good reviews, so let’s dive into the details to figure out what we think.
Shekar (Raja Shekar), a retired cop who is good at looking at crime scenes and figuring out quickly who did it, asks an active cop for help to solve a double murder case. Shekar looks into his wife’s death right away, but he can’t stop thinking about his wife Indu (Aathmeeya Rajan) from before they broke up. But the story takes an unexpected turn when it turns out that his wife wasn’t killed by an accident but by someone else. In the end, who killed his wife? Will he get the information he needs? What’s different about him from him? Watching the movie is the only way to learn everything.

Even in the 21st century, suspense and detective movies never get old, but the story has to be new. Joseph is a remake of Joju George’s Shekar, which was a big hit in Malayalam (2018). I don’t think the people who made this have said anywhere that it’s a remake, but people who know Joseph will recognise it. In 2018, both the plot and the way the characters were made were brilliant and unique. In 2022, the plot is not as unique, and the movie may have been ruined by too many typical detective scenes.
The movie starts off well, with a good introduction to the main character. The director didn’t waste any time getting into the hero’s world, but what happens next makes people wonder if this is a thriller or not. There are a few twists and turns in the story, but they don’t really work.
Rajashekar’s portrayal of Sheakar is fine, since it’s clear that he’s gotten older. Even though the character is an old police officer who is now retired, he still needs energy to investigate and looks physically weak while doing so. Rajahsekar’s daughter, Shivani Rajashekar, plays the same character in the movie. She and the rest of the cast do a great job in their roles.
Jeevitha Rajashekar is not a new director, but the way movies are made today has changed a lot, and she needs to get better because she didn’t completely capture the audience’s attention. The cinematography by Mallikarjun Naragani isn’t very good, and the music by Anup Rubens isn’t right for a thriller. But even though he worked hard, he couldn’t do enough, and the rest of the technical departments did a great job.
Shekar is not for everyone, but those who enjoy thrillers may enjoy it.
Movie Rating: 3/ 5
