Goodachari starts on a promising note as a spy thriller but it narrows down to an investigative thriller. The influences of ‘Kshanam’ are visible throughout the writing. The first half is decent with gripping narration and stylish execution. The interval episode elevates the film to a whole new level. There is suspense and many twists in the second half of the film. The climax is satisfactory and leaves its mark. There are some plot holes but it is difficult to discuss them without giving away spoilers.
Adivi Sesh is convincing as a spy. He impresses with his performance in emotional scenes. Sobhita Dhulipala doesn’t have much scope in the film. She is good in her role. Supriya returns to silver screen after a hiatus and she leaves her mark in an intense role. Prakash Raj as usual impresses with his role.
Goodachari is a brilliant film on technical front. Given the small budget, the team has come up with great visuals and phenomenal background score. The editing is slick and the production values are impressive. The screenplay is gripping throughout the film. The VFX work is not comparable to high budget films but is not awkward or out of place.
Goodachari is not a regular spy thriller. It is decent effort and is a treat to watch for the audience of thriller genre. There are some flaws. But at such a low budget, Goodachari is a commendable film.
