Thaggedele Movie Review: Although many people are familiar with Dhandupalyam, the trailer for the film Thaggedele has been causing some buzz in recent days. Srinivas Raju, the director of this film, also directed Dhandupalyam. Now that the film has finally been released today, November 4, 2022, let’s dig into an in-depth review to see if it’s worth seeing.
In the novel, there is a serial homicide in the city, and when the police begin their investigation, they discover that the hero is seeking vengeance. What happened in the hero’s flashback? Why is getting even different from the rest of the story?

The film opens intriguingly by depicting serial homicides in the city, but once the plot shifts to a love story, the screenplay’s speed slows. However, there are a few things in the first half that may hold viewers’ attention for a short time, and once the Dhandupalyam gang arrives, the second half becomes thrilling. Even though their actions have little to do with the plot, it’s nevertheless entertaining to watch them on television.
The film contains some features that will appeal to young people, but it only holds your attention from start to finish. The film could have been lot better if the appropriate amount of emotion had been used. We can enjoy the Dhandupalyam premise for a while, but I don’t think it will assist the film’s success.
Aside from Ananya Raj, who looked lovely but had nothing to do, Ravi Shankar, Raja Ravindra, Naina Ganguly, Naga Babu, and Pooja Gandhi all performed brilliantly in their respective roles, as did Naveen Chandra, Divya Pillai, and Raja Ravindra.
Srinivas Raju rose to prominence with the Dandupalyam flicks, and now, after a lengthy break, he has returned with a love story titled This Love Story. He did, however, include numerous themes, such as the money laundering at Baba’s and Swamiji, which would have been interesting to see on screen but was not effectively incorporated into the screenplay.
Thaggedele is technically strong; nevertheless, Chinna’s BGM isn’t up to par, Charan Arjun’s songs aren’t memorable, and the rest of the crew performed effectively. In a few scenes, Venkat Prasad’s cinematography stood out.
