Guru Raj(Prakash Raj) gets murdered and that upsets his elder son Kali (Jagapathi Babu) and decides to takes revenge on the culprits.
In this hunt, he too gets killed and then comes Guru Raj’s third son Radha (Manoj) to take up the same responsibility as his brother. How is Guru Raj’s second son (Vadde Naveen) featured in this set up and whether Radha achieved his target or not is the rest of the story all about.
The story is old but the way it has been set up in old city backdrop is attractive. The camera works elevates the threat in the story clearly. All the violence scenes in old city are captured well. Prakash Raj’s murder scene is shot in gritty way and appears as a good beginning.
Lack of clarity in the sequence of violence activities is the major drawback of Attack. People behind revenge and the way they take revenge were not showcased well. Moreover, too many characters adds to the confusion list. Climax has been stretched more than normal. Especially in the last five minutes, RGV tried to discuss several things, which makes one lose the whole clarity, they earned till then.
Manchu Manoj is the only hope of the film. His aggressive nature in Attack helped his character to elevate more. Prakash Raj’s cameo is decent. Jagapathi Babu is ok in his short role and Vadde Naveen gets a notable comeback.
Abhimanyu Singh as villain is too silly. Poonam Kaur’s performance deserves whistles. Surabhi’s role is short and does not make any impact.
Camera work is the key notable aspect of Attack movie. Though the movie’s length is less than 2 hours, several scenes can be chopped off, to make the movie more interesting. Screenplay is an utter blunder, and confusion is the king of Attack.
The casting is good, but the way RGV dragged things without justifiable reasons is boring. Not to the surprise of many, ‘Attack’ adds as an another page in the book of RGV failures.
Attack Final Word
If you have want to set up a record of watching all Manchu Manoj films regardless of how the movies are, watch ‘Attack’ too.
