In my Radhe Shyam review, I’m going to focus on Prabhas’ performance, style, and swag. The film is definitely power-packed, and it makes the audience feel like they’re watching a movie by Prabhas himself. I’ve also read a couple of other positive reviews, such as Umair’s, and I’ve been impressed by the latter’s enthusiasm. The film is billed as the “Biggest Epic Saga” in India, and I am pleased to report that these are all positive things.
While Radhe Shyam has a grandly mounted love story, it’s also a film with a lack of soul. Despite a charming lead pair, it fails to generate any magic with its characters. Instead, it settles for a glossy affair that lacks soul. It’s also a bit over-long, and I’m a little tired of Prabhas’ cliched character traits, which make me dread the sequel.
Although Radhe Shyam is an epic tale, it stays true to its genre. The dazzling visuals and dashing Prabhas make it a must-see. Sadly, the second half of the film doesn’t keep up with its pace, and its main love story ends up feeling flat. It has great promise, but it’s a disappointing film. The second half feels rushed and lacks chemistry between the two leads.
