A come back for actor Prashanth after a huge gap has been fulfilled to an extent with Saagasam, which is based on a simple plot of an ego clash between Soonu Sood (antagonist) and Prashanth (protagonist). The story is interspersed with elements of romance, emotions and predictable drama.
A youngster with no ambition and lots of confidence in life is our hero Ravi (played by Prashanth). An equally competent personality to Ravi is the smart and prideful villain Bittu (played by Soonu Sood).
Kotta Srinivasa Rao as a senior politician is the main head of Bittu’s team and he has done good justice to his role. The old fashioned love portions with Amanda leave the audience restless. Though the songs are good the placement is horrible in the screenplay. Even with the support of Thambi Ramaiah and MS Baskar, there are very little scenes where audiences burst into laughter. But a partly convincing making is what keep story going since the plot is just the same from the Telugu version.
On the technical part, cinematography by Shaji Kumar is eye-candy especially in the songs shot in foreign locations; editing by Don Max is improper occasionally. Music and BGM by S.Thaman is convincing to the plot. Overall, Saagasam delivers a typical story, middling romance portions and is centered mainly on Prashanth’s timely decisions to win over the villain.
