Koratala Shiva is known for making commercial films with a messaging environment. All his films have a moral touch on the main character and are mixed with hero elevation scenes.

But in  Acharya, he follows a typical commercial route by mixing a temple town backdrop with a Naxal hero in the hideout.

The basic idea was not that great, and the execution was flat all the way. Neither the agony faced by the people of Dharmasthali was reflected nor did the character of Acharya have any depth.

Initial scenes looked too inactive and there was a continuous feeling of lethargy. Also, a few scenes that could have lifted the momentum were brought down by a weird background score. But the pre-interval episode had some sort of impact.

Siddha's character in the second half was intended to lift the movie fails to do so. His character was also brought without the proper establishment. Though some dialogues worked out, the whole episode couldn't pass the ordinary level.

A much-hyped combination of father and son and scenes between the two may impress the fandom, especially the expression of Chiranjeevi in the forest fight after saving Ram Charan gives a vintage feel. Bhale Banjara song too came well.

As far as the performances, Megastar Chiranjeevi looked good and delivered a few punch dialogues with ease but other than that there was hardly anything to do. Ram Charan too looked confident but even his character was not established cleanly. Pooja Hegde was just present, Sonu Sood, Jisshu Sen Gupta, Ajay, and Tanikella Bharani were alright.

Mani Sharma's songs were fine, the background score was terrible in the first half. Only in the second half does it gathers some good work.

Acharya is engaging only in parts and solely depends on the star power rather than the subject.
