Prabhas is the soul of Saaho and the entire movie runs around him, he is one of the major pillars of the film. After Mirchi in Saaho film, Prabhas looked very stylish, his costumes are very trendy and adding more weight is his new swag, the attitude that makes his character in Saaho memorable to his fans. Prabhas looked effortless while doing the action episodes, fights, chasing scenes, bike, car driving sequences and it appeared very natural on the big screen. Everyone is aware of his acting skills, he gave his best as always but this time the emotional content is missing in his role of Saaho.

Shraddha Kapoor is shown in an action avatar doing her own stunts in Saaho and she did full justice to the role given to her. Her chemistry with Prabhas looked good, the romantic track is fine, and she appeared beautiful with songs with those specially designed costumes. Vennela Kishore tried to evoke few laughs but got successful partially only, the better-written role might have worked out. Murali Sharma was given a key role with minimum screen time and he utilized it perfectly to showcase his acting skills.

In the long list of negative characters in Saaho, only Chunky Pandey has dominated rest with his impactful performance and especially in the second half, he has nailed it. Jackie Shroff, Neil Nitin Mukesh, Arun Vijay, Prakash Belavadi, Evelyn Sharma, Lal, Mandira Bedi, Mahesh Manjrekar and Tinnu Anand is given limited roles with importance but are used perfectly to their potential by the director and they have even made their presences felt in the mind of the audience.

Others Comment:
Bottom Line – Prabhas did not hit a sixer out of the ground with Saaho but he has definitely hit a boundary and the movie will be a treat for all his fans especially die-hard fans.
