Tollywood talented young actor Sudheer Babu has now come up with an action thriller Hunt. Directed by Mahesh, the movie has Srikanth Meka and Bharath Niwas in other crucial roles. The film has hit the screens today, and let’s see how it is.


Assistant Commissioner Of Police Arjun Prasad (Sudheer Babu) meets with a brutal accident due to which he loses his memory. Before the accident, he will be investigating his friend and ACP Aryan Dev’s (Bharat Niwas) murder case. After the accident, another friend of Arjun Prasad, and Commissioner of Police Mohan Bhargav (Srikanth) asks Arjun to work on the case without revealing his memory loss to anyone in the department. Who killed Aryan Dev? Did Arjun solve the case? Did Arjun regain his memory? Watch the film to know the answers.

Plus Points:

Sudheer Babu is a brilliant performer and the young actor scores high with his impeccable performance in the movie. Be it the intense action sequences or emotional scenes, Sudheer has given a superior performance. With Hunt, Sudheer has inched a step further in his career. Sudheer Babu’s potential as an actor is tapped completely by the film’s director.

Bharath and Sreekanth are perfectly cast for Aryan Dev and Mohan Bhargav’s roles. Their characters travel along with the story and it is good to see two seasoned artists get good performance-oriented roles. Their scenes with Sudheer Babu worked quite well.

The film’s first half is quite interesting and there are a good amount of engaging scenes here. The way action is linked to the story is impressive. Filmmakers of late have been including songs even if they were not needed and thankfully Hunt doesn’t make this mistake.

Mounika Reddy was seen throughout the film and she did a brilliant job as the Police officer. There is a very meaningful scene of her with Sudheer Babu which was clap-worthy. Actress Chitra Shukla was good in her given role.

Minus Points:

After a fine first half, the tempo loses the grip completely in the second half. The momentum didn’t carry here and the proceedings become boring and uninteresting after a point in time. The result could have been great had the second half been designed in a captivating and engrossing manner.

The climax twist is shocking and is surely a brave attempt in mainstream Telugu cinema. This particular aspect might be likable only by a few and it might not go well with all sections of the audience.

The editing needed some betterment as a few sequences seem stretched. Due to the slowness in a few portions, the overall impact got hampered to an extent.

Technical Aspects:

The tense music by Ghibran was according to the film’s mood and it elevated a few scenes. Arun Vincent’s cinematography is fine and so are the production values. As stated above, the editing could have been still better.

Coming to the director, Mahesh Surapaneni, he did an okay job with the film. While the first half is filled with interesting elements, the second hour isn’t that engaging as the first part. However, he extracted solid performances from the three actors.


On the whole, Hunt manages to engage in parts. Sudheer Babu’s fantastic act is ably supported by Srikanth and Bharath. The investigation angle is partly absorbing. The film’s fate depends on how the audience receives the crucial twist. Overall the film ends up as a passable watch this weekend. Rating: 2.75/5
