Sasana Sabha Movie Review: Sasana Sabha has generated a lot of hype despite including new performers. However, the compelling trailer and advertisements increased anticipation, and Nata Kiriti Rajendra Prasad, of 7/G Brindavan Colony fame, added to the frenzy. With Sonia Agarwal playing the lead part, the movie made headlines. Now that it has been published, let’s dive into the review to see whether or not this political drama is worth seeing.
The story of Sasana Sabha follows Narayana Swamy (Rajendra Prasad), who wants to do good for the people as he runs for office against the avaricious politician played by Sonia Agarwal. However, things are not as easy as they seem, as Surya (Indrsena), the most dangerous criminal, will present a threat. The rest of the plot is determined by what Indrasena, Sonia Agarwal, and Rajendra Prasad have in common.

Sasana Sabha belongs to the category of political films, which are nothing new to us having seen many others throughout the years. The movie has a promising beginning, delves into the plot, and slowly becomes interesting with Rajendra Prasad’s scenes in the first act. However, after that, the movie loses its way with a rote hero introduction, an uninteresting love story, and a slow-moving screenplay that never holds our attention in the first half.
The film’s second half suffers from the same issue; aside from a few political scenes, there is nothing new to the story, and the love story, comedy, and numerous commercial elements feel forced into the narrative. There is also no real conflict in the movie, despite the fact that the film’s compelling premise initially draws you in. However, it is difficult to keep the audience’s interest until the climax, and the plot’s datedness is the biggest flaw.
Speaking of the acting, the debutant Indrasena, of 7/G Brindavan Colony fame, does a merely adequate job as Surya, managing to preserve the heroic appearance but failing miserably to emote at all. Although Sonia Agarwal is a talented actress, she doesn’t seem to be the right match for the role of a selfish politician. Rajendra Prasad, who plays Narayana Swami, does a great job, and the rest of the ensemble performs as required by the script.
Although the premise is good, K. Raghavendra Reddy, the film’s writer, has created an out-of-date tale, and Venu Mandikanti has only partially succeeded in capturing the audience’s attention among Telugu’s recent influx of content-based movies.
Sasan Sabha looks good technically, despite the fact that it was shot on a tight budget. Krishna Murali’s beautiful cinematography made it appear larger than life, and even though the plot is predictable, the technical brilliance keeps you glued to your seat.
Overall, Sasana Sabha is a single-watch movie that will only appeal to a small segment of the public.
