Making of a don
Every man has a past. Every don a history. This was announced as the one-line of David Billa, a prequel to Billa, when the project got a kickstart some time back.
As promised, director Chakri Toleti has delivered an interesting tale, which deals about how an international don called David Billa emerged.
It’s Ajith who elevates the film to a new level with his suave looks and hard work. He is ably supported byChakri Toleti, who gives audience the feel of watching a Hollywood movie.
The film opens with David Billa (Ajith) struggling in the hands of a group of opponents. When they are about to finish him off, Billa suddenly bashes them all, and escapes.
Then the flashback starts when David Billa, a refugee, is asked to deliver a smuggling consignment. However, call it destiny or the smartness of Billa, he uses the opportunity and rises as a don.
As he grows in the corridors of underworld, he faces troubles from established baddies like Abbasi (Sudhanshu Pandey) and Dimetri (Vidyut Jamwal).
Ajith is simply superb. He speaks less and performs more. In the climax helicopter fight scene, Ajith’s hardwork is visible on screen.
There is nothing much to talk about heroines, but the villains Sudhanshu Pandey and Vidyut Jamwal leave us in awe with their suave yet menacing performance.
Yuvanshankar Raja scores big time in his background score, but his songs are letdown. Stunts by Rajasekar and cinematography by R D Rajasekhar are the movie’s biggest strengths.
To sum it up, Chakri Toleti has made a racy flick that may be liked by those who enjoy hardcore action movies sans any masala stuff.
