Pushpa Raj (Pushpa) does not have a last name. He resides in Andhra Pradesh’s Seshachalam forest. He starts out as a red sandalwood smuggler’s coolie and earns the trust of the Kondareddy brothers’ syndicate (Ajay Ghosh and others).

Mangalam Seenu (Sunil), the syndicate’s primary boss, is generating crores of rupees by transporting the wood to Chennai and handing out peanuts to Kondareddy and other members of the syndicate. Pushpa challenges Mangalam Seenu to a duel and becomes the new don.

Police officer Shekhawat (Fahadh Faasil) arrives on the scene just as everyone believes he is the new ‘boss’ of the smuggling business.


As Pushpa Raj, Allu Arjun has delivered an outstanding performance. His physique change is flawless. His delivery of language in the Chittoor dialect is amazing. The film is entirely his show from beginning to end.

Rashmika Mandanna, who plays the village beauty, nails her accent and puts in a genuine effort. The romantic sequences between them are amusing, although they are overly clichéd.

Sunil gets a fantastic makeover as the villain, although his role isn’t particularly successful. The presence of Anasuya makes no difference. The actor who played Keshava did a good job. Ajay Ghosh and Kannada star Dhanunjay are among them. Samantha is hot in the item song, but it’s only a few minutes long.

Fahadh Faasil, one of India’s most well-known performers, makes a late appearance in the film. He is conspicuous in his presence.

Technical Departments:

If we look at the screenplay, we can see that director Sukumar isn’t in his greatest form. The struggle between Pushpa and a police officer is shown in the beginning. The task police officer fails miserably and flees the scene. Then, for Sunil and Ajay Ghosh’s characters, there’s a lot of build-up. However, they prove to be weak villains. All of Pushpa’s rivals — a task police officer, Sunil, Ajay Ghosh, and Dhananjay – appear to be adding to the drama until he meets his adversary, IPS officer Shekhawat (Fahadh Faasil).

Shekhawat enters the scene 20 minutes prior to the climax. As a result, the entire film appears to be laying the groundwork for the sequel. Perhaps it was not a clever move to split the plot into two parts and make the film nearly three hours lengthy.

In this film, the cinematography and production values stand out. The camerawork of Miroslaw Kuba Brozek is superb. He did a fantastic job with the wooded sequences. Aesthetically, he also shot some action scenes. Throughout the film, there are high production values.

Devi Sri Prasad has given us viral songs, but his background score disappoints us. There appears to be an issue with the audio quality. Chittoor slang dialogues are excellent.


In a nutshell, Pushpa entirely belongs to Allu Arjun and his outstanding performance.
