Best wishes Sakhi is Keerthy Suresh's debut sports film and her third female-centric film. This film, directed by Nagesh Kukunoor, a National Award winner, was released in theatres today. Let's see what happens.
Sakhi Pamar (Keerthy Suresh) is a naughty young lady who is regarded as the village's unluckiest. Jagapathi Babu, on the other side, is a retired colonel who returns to his homeland in search of the best shooters. Goli Raju (Aadhi Pinishetty), Sakhi's childhood friend, presents her to the colonel. Jagapathi Babu is impressed with her shooting abilities and begins training her. What transpired during the course of the training? Is Sakhi on her way to achieving her goal? Did she come out on top? Only if you see the movie on a wide screen will you find out the answers.
The film's main asset is Keerthy Suresh's outstanding performance as Sakhi Pamar, for which she won a National Award. She looked stunning as a rustic belle and was completely immersed in the role. Keerthy's ability to speak in a Chittoor accent is a plus in her performance.
As the coach, Jagapathi Babu is very tidy. He has a couple of good motivating dialogues. Aadhi Pinishetty performed admirably in his supporting role. Rahul Ramakrishna has also had a good performance. The amazing background score by Devi Sri Prasad enhances a couple passages.
Nagesh Kukunoor, a well-known director, has created a regular sports drama. In a sports film, one would expect strong emotions and twists and turns, but Good Luck Sakhi, strangely, lacks emotional depth.
The picture lacks a compelling tension that will entice viewers to sit and watch it with bated breath. Aadhi Pinishetty's character has little to do with the plot.
Nagesh Kukunoor's attempt to make Good Luck Sakhi a compelling sports drama fell short. The movie features several ridiculous sequences in the second half, in addition to the slow-paced narration. The climax, which should have been exciting, is a major disappointment.
Nagesh Kukunoor's poorest film, as he fails to engage the audience with a compelling sports narrative. The film's main features are Devi Sri Prasad's songs and background score. Chirantan Das' cinematography is excellent. There are no mistakes in the editing, and Sreekar Prasad trimmed the video in a professional manner. The producers, Sudheer and Shravya, have excellent production values.
Overall, Good Luck Sakhi is a slow-burning sports story that makes you root for Keerthy Suresh. Even though the actress gave it her all, the film fell short of being a success. The movie isn't very good, and even Keerthy couldn't redeem it. Despite her best efforts, Sakhi was unable to hit the target.
