In a three way clash of action and thriller films this week, featuring Balayya’s “Bhagavanth Kesari” and “Leo,” alongside Raviteja’s “Tiger Nageswara Rao,” audiences were in for a diverse but surprisingly common theme.
These films offered distinct stories and presentations, yet strangely converged on the portrayal of brutality and greed. “Leo” delves into the chilling concept of human sacrifice driven by superstitious beliefs, reaching extreme levels when the villain contemplates killing his own child for the sake of these beliefs.
In a striking parallel, “Bhagavanth Kesari” also incorporates a similar episode where the antagonist takes the life of his own son to fulfill his grand aspirations. “Tiger Nageswara Rao” further intensifies this theme as the son gruesomely beheads his own father to showcase the depths of ruthlessness.
While each film follows its unique narrative and execution, they all share a common thread in portraying cold-blooded characters, making it an eerie coincidence that all three were released during the festive season of Dasara. Among them, “Tiger Nageswara Rao” emerges as the most ghastly and violent, pushing the boundaries of brutality.
