Vishal’s films have not been doing well in Telugu in the past few years. Pooja will come as a breather to Vishal as this film is a decently executed mass film with enough commercial elements. Plus points of the film are Vishal, direction and commercial elements. Being the solo big release for Diwali festival, Pooja has chances to become a hit like Pandem Kodi in Telugu career of Vishal.

A film may have a strong screenplay and good production values but if it doesn’t carry the right emtoinal quotient with entertainment, it fails to work. Something like this happened here. The first half was somewhat smooth with elements of romance, action and some comedy. The interval bang was promising. The second half got stretched and there was not much scope for emotional drama. Overall, this is a film which banked more on the execution than the plot so the impact was not that great. At the box office, this might be an average grosser.

On the whole, Vishal’s Pooja has an entertaining first half with decent romance, comedy and action episodes. But it is the second half which falls flat. Even though the intensity here is good, it gets overboard, predictable and repetitive making Pooja just an average affair.

Repeating the age old factor of good winning over the bad, Pooja is one more commercial action drama with family sentiments, from director Hari. Though the film slips few logics randomly, it appeals to be a good watch for family audiences this festival season and definitely a feast to Vishal fans.

Pooja may appeal to audience who love to watch endless action scenes and a tug of war between the hero and villain. We have seen better commercial movies than Pooja and even Vishal has some very good action flicks to his credit. Pooja is a boring film that tries too hard to hold the interest of audience. Watch it at your own risk.

Director Hari came with routine subject. There are no real twists and turns in the film. Though the film has commercial elements and high voltage action scenes, comedy with Tamil flavor is a big minus. Instead of evoking laughter it tested the patience of movie lovers. Except for action scenes which interest masses there is nothing in the movie. Shruti Hasan's glamour to some extent and pre climax arises little bit interest. Otherwise it is pretty ordinary story.

Director Hari puts in a lot of commercial elements like a big family, romance between the lead pair, lots of action, inane twists and turns, a revenge plot and of course the villain. But he spends nearly 45 minutes or more to introduce the various characters in the film and you feel totally lost by interval time.

All in all, Pooja is a felonious waste of time, effort and money. Despite few decent performances by the actors & the technical crew, Pooja fails to create the much needed impact because of a sloppy storyline. If the screenplay had been much tauter, this movie could have gone to become a decent hit at the box office.

Finally, Pooja is routine commercial pot boiler which is cooked really bad. There is nothing that which may excite you to watch this fill. Skip it!
