Dhalam has a very good first half. The film loses pace in the second half and becomes very predictable. If you like serious films with good dialogues, you can safely give this movie a chance. The film’s appeal might be limited to A centers only, so we will have to see how it fares at the Box Office.

The first half of the movie started off well with some good entertainment and the interval bang is interval. The second half started well but the director could not keep up the tempo as the movie progressed. In to 20 minutes in the second half, the movie becomes boring and predictable.

Andala Rakshasi fame Naveen Chandra's Latest flick Dalam was Released. The movie is a Naxalite Drama. RGV's Protege Jeevan Reddy directed this movie. The movie has good first half. But lacks its pace in second half. A center people may like this film. We have to wait and see how all audiences receive this film.

Dalam is once again a small film with very good cinematography. It lends the film a realistic tone and feel, without looking like amateurishly shot, kudos to cinematographer Sudhakar Yakkenti for that. Action (fights) by Ganesh is neatly done too and deserves praise despite the obvious inspiration for the action sequences (first and last).

Dalam is the classic example of film picking a central idea that needs much research and awareness and trying to mould it into a masala archetype.Such films run the danger of failing at both ends. Luckily for first time director Jeevan Reddy that didn’t happen, completely. The seriousness it deserves was not up to the mark, then again, technically it was polished enough to convince you otherwise.

Making a film on theme of Naxalism is a big risk even a small mistake can cost you a lot and Jeevan Reddy should be appreciated for bringing such a subject before audiences. In the past after Sindooram few films are made on Naxalism theme but none of them discussed about life style of naxals. Take a sensitive subject like this and filling the first half with entertainment shows the potential of director.

It's pretty obvious from the movie that the debutante filmmaker has no worthwhile understanding of the naxalite movement, and is even less informed about the behavioral patterns of the young men that make up the naxal cadres. In any case when did lack of lack of well rounded understanding over subject matter ever deter our filmmakers from going ahead and making movies regardless?

Dont have any expectations on this movie and you may like the film a little for its clean content. However, it has many similarities with Encounter movie and if you dont like that movie, you wont like this. Also, there are very boring and slow scenes. This is a one time watchable movie. But some good setimental scenes and climax are positives.

When compared to the first half, the narration in the second half will test the audience. Director failed in using Sai Kumar, Nasser and subbaraju completely. Screenplay will need better in second half. Jeevan reddy failed to convey the inner message in the movie properly to the public. The item song is not good.

Overall, Dalam is good action entertainer, which will impress the mass audience with its comedy and romance. Don't miss to watch it this weekend.
