The screenplay in the second half is good and engaging. The direction is good. The production values need a special mention.
Rahul makes a very good comeback with this movie. As a pizza delivery boy, who gets targeted by the police, for involving (?) in a murder, he is good. Mahima Makwana is beautiful and performs well. Ajay Ghosh and Ajay, who played cops in the movie, are very good in their roles. The rest of the actors did their job well.
Engaging second half
Dragged First half
Venkatapuram has a good story line. But the director takes time to get into the actual story and so the first half seems a little bit dragged. But the interval bang is good and creates curiosity. The second half is also very engaging and the climax has also been executed well. The suspense factor has been maintained well. The film has it's share of flaws but the debutante director Venu Madikanti impresses with his narration.The performances of the lead pair and the other characters are good. All in all, 'Venkatapuram' is a Decent crime thriller with a good second half.
