The Movie starts slowly and by interval bang the movie will reach to peak levels. The actual story starts in second half and last 30 minutes is heart of the film with wonderful graphics.

The movie began and took off very well. There were certain predictable moments later on but they were never a burden to the flow of the movie. And the director had made sure the scenes leading to Interval and the interval bang are turned out well. The sec

Director Srinivas Reddy prepared a perfect and neat story and script. However his story lacks heroism and mostly dependent on graphics to prove a point. How it will appeal to masses has to be analysed in the coming days.

This is Srinivas Reddy’s biggest project ever and the film is bound to take him to the next level as a director who has the potential to execute such an ambitious film. Devi Sri Prasad’s background score is brilliant

In such films audiences are not bothered about the logic, they just want to see visual effects and one must understand we are miles behind Bollywood or Hollywood. Nine crore was said to be spent on the graphics but there wasn’t a single trace of it on the screen.

Director Srinivas Redde needs to be appreciated for his sincere effort. Many people has written him off before the release of 'Damarukam', but his hard work and his directorial skills have reflected in the film. Though, he took a lot of time to introduce

Despite the huge budget, Dhamarukam’s visual effects are not really up to the mark. There are a few good scenes and Nagarjuna looks handsome as always, but the less than satisfactory direction and narration spoil the experience somewhat. Overall, Dhamarukam ends up being a decent entertainer that could have easily been so much better

Damarukam's special effects and socio fantasy narration will attract movie lovers. 'Damarukam' delicious dish will be loved by class movie lovers, children and family movie lovers. How masses receive will decide its fate at the box office.

Overall, the film is worth a watch once but on business terms, looking at the investment made and the figures needed to break even, it would require some blessings of Lord Shiva to push the film to a hit zone.

‘Damarukam’ is a socio fantasy film about a common man taking on an evil with super natural powers. Director needs to do lot of home work to connect different time periods and convince the audience. Director Srinivas Reddy succeeded to large extent with

Dhamarukam opens with an interesting premise. The basic plot reminds you of Bhairava Dweepam and Anaganaga O Dheerudu etc. that are made in similar lines. Director tried to make it commercially viable by dealing it in contemporary fashion.

Damarukam boasts off its lavish technical values, the Vfx works are amazing while the story has interesting plot though it somehow reminds you of the Pathala Bhairavi and Bhaiarava Dweepam storylines. The second half has thrilling moments and the last hal

The film had gone through several hardship before it finally came out into the screens. The first half goes in a very predictable manner and there is nothing special to see. But the interval bang onwards things change.

Overall,the movie is Good.Its a Family Entertainer with a Horror Flavor.We should wait and see how the audience receive this movie.Whether Nargarjuna’s Image could drag more audience to theaters? Fingers Crossed!!

First half of the film is good. The second half should have been better. Emotions in the film should have been more stronger. Plus points of the film are Nagarjuna and the grandeur.

Dhamarukam has the richness that its makers have always promised, but suffers an underdeveloped story treatment and a relatively-weak climax with a passive presence for the protagonist.

Nagarjuna as Mallikarjun is decent and a perfect match as he has the devotional following. Nagarjuna in the fight scenes and dance scenes are up to the mark. He is dynamic in performing. His skill of acting is at mature state.

The movie lives up to its tag of being a "visual effects extravaganza", at least in terms of sheer quantity. With monsters, devils, sorcerers, gods, naga sadhus and the works.

Srinivasa Reddy came up with a simple devotional tale and successfully added all the commercial elements to it without disturbing DNA of the tale. Most important thing is he told the story in a way it should be told, such a small film director keeping

Dhamarukam is just a visual feast.The movie script could have been handled well too.Few VFX have been done well.First of the movie is slow but second half is good with the story takes many twists.The chemistry between Nagarjuna and Anushka is not so good.Chota K Naidu’s cinematography is ok.

‘Damarukam’ is a satisfactory product for all types of audience. But commercial success range, the final market potentiality of Nag and these kind of projects will have to be wait and seen.

"Dhamarukam" had a strong premise that could have made it one of the best socio-fantasy flicks, but thanks to the director's intent to make it a commercial entertainer, we are disappointed on the whole.

Go for this one for the visual effects and the sheer idea of an asura fighting for his supremacy.
