About Pushpa Movie
Set in the 1990s, it is the story of Pushpa Raj, a laborer who gets into the business of smuggling red sandalwood and achieves great heights.
Pushpa Movie Songs
The most hyped songs of the movie are one that is starring Samantha, O Antava Oo Oo Antava, and the other one starring Rashmika Saami Saami. But, to be honest, the song which I loved the most was Srivalli, only because of Allu Arjun’s signature step. He dances soo well and it might have been difficult for him to not go all out dancing and grooving.
Themes in the movie Pushpa
Friendship: A celebrated theme from the start till the end of the story.
Arrogance/Attitude: The two most praised characters, Pushpa and SP Bhanwar Singh Shekhawat ace it.
Love: One of the highlights of the story was the chemistry between Rashmika and Allu Arjun. It gave a little ease to the story at a few points.
Revenge: This is going to be the building block for the next part. As Pushpa has taken his revenge on SP Bhanwar Shekhawat, now it’s his turn to fire.
Honor/Respect: The whole movie revolves around this! The story is all about how Allu Arjun builds himself as the strongest pillar among others for the honor of his mother and him as well which he never got.
Hate: Between Pushpa and his father’s family, between Pushpa and SP Bhanwar Shekhawat, between Pushpa and Konda Reddy, and between Pushpa and Jolly Reddy. In the whole movie, Pushpa has got no chillz! And thanks to him, we have got this theme.
Loyalty: It is good and as well as gave Pushpa an opportunity to grow further. After Konda Reddy’s death, he could have killed his brother and taken over the gang very easily. But instead, Pushpa saved Jakka Reddy’s life from Srinu (proving his loyalty), and eventually, it gave him the opportunity to be the head of the syndicate.
Why does Pushpa become the talk of the town? OR is Just Overrated?
“Mein jhukega nai sala”-Pushpa from the movie Pushpa: The Rise
Here is one more!
“Pushpa name hai toh Flower Samjhe Kya, Apun Fire Hai Fire”-Pushpa from the movie Pushpa:The Rise
I think this explains why the movie became super-duper famous among the crowd. The dialogues! Well, there are a few more reasons for it.
And the most noted one: ACTING! All this has clubbed up together and made Pushpa: The Rise a tremendous hit amongst the crowd.
Shooting Location of Movie:
The major part of the shooting was done in Maredumilli forest, and the rest of the movie was in Vishakhapatnam, Bhoopathipalem, and Gudesa.
It is a great movie. The story is engaging and the characters are played to pure authenticity. Allu Arjun is always fun and effortless to watch. The actor versatility of an actor is not proved by how many characters he plays but by how effortlessly he can mold himself through diverse characters. We all know Allu Arjun is a great dancer and after seeing him grooving in Ala Vaikantapuramallo, and then transitioning into a raw character like this is difficult but he made it really smooth.
Said that Fahad Faizal was able to build interest in what he is going to do next instead of how Allu Arjun will tackle it.
All said and done, but there is one more person in the movie who we saw in a totally new avatar. I was literally amazed by him because to date I might have seen him in 50 to 60 different characters but this one by God he aced it like a pro. We have always seen him as that happy-go-lucky person in almost all the movies, you can take the example of his to resect release as well Ala Vainkantapuramaloo but in Pushpa: The Rise, he has transformed to the next level.
And the person is none other than Sunil. Hats off to him!
Everyone has done a really great job. We can see that efforts are real, transformations are of the next level but you cannot watch it again and again, it’s a one-time watch. As the story will not hook you as it hooked you in Bahubali and KGF.
The filmmakers tried to give us one more grand character like Bahubali (Bahubali and Bahubali 2) and Rocky Bhai (KGF). But I think they have given us a great opponent instead i.e., Fahad Faizal. It was amazing to see him on the big screen. The revenge and anger were clearly visible in his eyes.
