Movie Verdict

Saakini Daakini is a clean remake of Midnight Runners, and the producers were successful in tailoring the narrative to the preferences of the Telugu audience. Despite having a plot that appears to be relatively shallow, the movie yet contains all the necessary components to keep viewers interested from beginning to end. The movie gets off to a good start by establishing important characters, and it only gets more intriguing once the action moves to the training academy.

The first half of the movie is filled with humor and Nivetha and Regina’s chemistry.

The kidnapping makes the second half even more compelling, and Nivetha and Regina’s efforts to solve the case keep us interested all the way to the finale. However, the emotional subplot didn’t quite work.

Both Nivetha and Regina are well-known, seasoned actors with distinctive acting styles. In this movie, Nivetha plays Shalini, a role that she had never played before and which she pulls off brilliantly thanks to her Telangana accent. Regina plays Dhamini, whose backstory serves as the film’s main plot point, and the rest of the cast, including Vennela Kishore, did well.

Sudheer Varma’s debut film made an impression. After a long absence, Swamy Ra Ra, a specialist in producing criminal dramas, made a great impression with Super Over, starring Naveen Chandra. Although he only partially succeeded in making this movie because we only saw it for its comedy, he still did justice to the remake.

Although Richard Prasad demonstrated his expertise in night sequences and Mikey McCleary & Naresh Kumaran’s songs failed to register at all, they wowed with the background score, and the rest of the technical crew did their best, Saakini Daakini’s good, training scenes technically fell short.

Finally, for people who enjoy comedy, Saakini Daakini is a good movie to see.
