Acharya Review Live Update

Megastar Chiranjeevi is known for his inimitable style and energy on screen, no matter what role he essays. Similarly, Koratala Siva is known for his unique hero characterisation, as seen in all his movies. In Acharya, Chiranjeevi moulds him to become a Koratala Siva hero. The result is we see Megastar devoid of his usual energy and free flow.

Acharya Review Live Update


Dharmasthali is a temple town where the inhabitants of the sacred Padaghattam are subjected to abuse and torture by Basava (Sonu Sood), an unscrupulous head who aims to join politics. It falls on Acharya (Chiranjeevi), a Naxalite, to restore order in the town in the face of threats posed by Rathod (Jisshu Sengupta). Dharmasthali has a hoary past, especially with its Gurukul student Siddha (Ram Charan) daring to go against Rathod’s brother (Saurav Lokesh). Will Dharmasthali ever be liberated?

On-Screen Performances:

Megastar Chiranjeevi is well known for his own style, swag and screen presence.  His body language and dialogue delivery in all his films usually has his own style.  But Acharya offers the audience a completely different and unique Chiru on screen.  The actor completely surrenders to the role created by Koratala Siva and fits the best to it.  The energy Chiranjeevi usually has can be seen in Acharya in a different way with Siva’s touch.  Chiru is so involved in the character so that the audience will surely forget the Megastar and just gets attached and connected to the character Acharya.  This makes the Megastar look even better on screen.  A Mega fan will surely enjoy the trademark mannerisms and dance moves of the Megastar.


Overall, Acharya is the weakest outing of director Koratala Siva till date and also one of the forgettable films in Megastar Chiranjeevi’s career. In all aspects, the film utterly fails to live up to the high expectations because of its poorly written screenplay and lackluster narration.

Technical Aspects:

Music by Mani Sharma is decent but his BGM could have been better in a few areas to elevate the heroism. One of the major attractions of Acharya is the temple town Dharmastahli. Most of the film happens in this setup and one cannot believe that the entire temple town is a set. The credit should go to art director Suresh for doing a splendid job.

The dances are decent and the ones in the father and son song were superb. The lyrics are meaningful and the dialogues by Koratala Siva are good. The fights composed especially for the father and son are so pleasing to the eyes.

Coming to the director Koratala Siva, he has done just a passable job with the film. Koratala has elevated the scenes between Chiru and Charan in a superb way and pleased the fans. But in all this, the taut storytelling, which is his forte, goes missing. Koratala’s writing is quite weak as there is not enough drama to elevate the proceedings. Most of the scenes look forced and the climax is the biggest example.
