Encounter specialist Shankar [Mahesh Babu] is transferred to a small village named Bhukkapatnam.

Over the years, Tollywood has met with these kind of stories and few of them clicked at box office while others had to taste bitter. There is also nothing that was offered in Aagadu but was presented in a different way, however once the twist is revealed, audience can predict the film. Nevertheless, Mahesh Babu should be credited to carry the film on his shoulders. The first half of the film is good and entertaining. The second half lets down the film. Brahmanandam provides few laughs in the second part.
Music of the film is a huge plus point. After Race Gurram, Thaman has delivered another super hit album. All the songs are filmed extremely lavish and are visual feast to eyes. Cinematography should be appreciated as Mahesh looks more handsome than ever. The technicians did justice to their job.
Well, what can we say about Mahesh. He gave penultimate performance. His mannerism, dialogue delivery and body languages, each and everything appears fresh and provide ample of entertainment to the audience. We have to find what Namrata is feeding Mahesh with, as he is getting younger and younger with every film. Probably satires and punch dialogues of Mahesh will go viral in the next few days.
Tamannah has seriously no scope and she resembles Shruti Haasan from Gabbar Singh. But she is good at providing glamour and also made a good pair with the Superstar. Shruti Haasan special song is also good. Rest of the cast, Rajendra Prasad, Ajay, Posani and Rao Ramesh are okay in their roles.
Final Word:Aagadu is an out and out Mahesh Babu commercial film. Die hard fans, go watch it and audience give a try.
