Waazi (an imaginary city) is the place owned by Prithvi Raj (Tinu Anand). He hands over his throne to his loyal Roy (Jackie Shroff) instead of his son Devraj (Chunkey Panday). Devraj has an inner enmity with Roy but doesn’t show at all. Roy wants to establish his Hydraulic Power Plant in India but Indian govt. doesn’t allow him. Now he has to come to India for that deal and met with an accident cause his death. But Devraj is still out of power due to Roy’s son Vishwank (Arun Vijay). On the other hand there is a money of worth 2 lac Cr. rupees but as Bollywood tradition that money is in safe which can only be opened by a black box. The whole game is behind that black box. Police, thieves, Roy industries and whole Waazi in the race to get that.
Now come to lead pair Ashok (Prabhas) and Amritha (Shraddha Kapoor), they both handles a case together. Ashok impressed Amritha with his smartness and bravery. They are on a mission of catching a serial robber.
What happens with Waazi throne, that black box and Ashok-Amritha love story get unveiled in the climax.
Screenplay is the strongest and weakest point of Saaho. Where it leaves you stunned with some amazing twists on the other hand it also has nail biting screenplay. Few of the questions remain unanswered even after climax.
Prabhas has done an awesome job but in Hindi his dialogue delivery was not that impacting as he just learned Hindi for Saaho.
Shraddha Kapoor looks innocent which she has been tried to show.
Jackie Shroff has an extended cameo and nicely done his job.
Chunkey Panday as main antagonist is quite impacting
Murli Sharma has some comic moments and equally shines at few places.
Arun Vijay and Lal have decent screen time and equally decent jobs. Rest of the supporting cast is equally good and support the story well.
Direction: Sujeeth’s direction is awesome but due to complicated screenplay in second half direction seems confused but he has really done a remarkable job.
Music: Various artists like Tanishq Bagchi, Badshah, Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy and Guru Randhawa have given Saaho music and it seems worthy as per demand of the story. Background score of Ghibran also supports the story and screenplay.
The Last Word: If you love thriller genre then it’s a tasty dish for you even for others it’s a nice watch. Saaho is not a Television film so go to theatres for Saaho, it may complicate you more on the television.
