Wild Dog Movie Review: Nagarjuna low-key performance will leave you underwhelmed in this action-thriller
- Wild Dog is based on an undercover operation carried out by NIA
- Nagarjuna plays a role of an NIA agent in the film
- Saiyami Kher plays a role of RAW agent in the film that also stars Dia Mirza
Actor Nagarjuna is back with a full action-packed thriller after his romantic comedy Manmadhudu 2. Ahishor Solomon picks up incidents from real life and tried sincerely to get the work done in this film – Wild Dog.
Vijay Varma, an ex-NIA agent who is doing a desk job, is called back to the force to investigate unresolved bomb blast cases that happened in several locations including Pune and Hyderabad. Vijay takes up the mission and how his team makes that impossible mission possible is the crux of the film.
The film is based on the undercover operation of NIA to nab a terrorist named Yasin Bhatkal. Nagarjuna as NIA agent Vijay Varma maintains a low-key profile throughout the film, which seems like the actor is low energy at times. Dia Mirza made a special appearance which doesn’t do much to the screenplay.
The team of Vijay with Ali Raza and others are well fit and makes a mark. Saiyami Kher and Atul Kulkarni did a good job in the given space. The antagonist Malhotra Shivam as Khalid is believable and adds to the intrigue of the film. Thaman’s music and Shaneil Duo’s cinematography are a plus for the film.
The director tried to bring in a realistic experience with no songs and extra elements which is appreciable and another advantage to the film is that it’s not just a one-man show and the screenplay tries to balance between characters especially the team of Operation Wild Dog.
The film is a good attempt to create a story of unsung heroes with lots of patriotic content and dialogues. A scene before intermission and the climax is well crafted and remain the highlight of the film.
In an effort to boost up patriotism with thrilling sequences, the film couldn’t bring in the best but somewhat managed to entertain the audience!
