Officer teaser: RGV’s touch missing in Nagarjuna’s cop film

There is also a group of gangsters contemplating reasons as to why they should be afraid of the officer hailing from Hyderabad. Like many of his gangster films, Officer is also set in Mumbai and Nagarjuna’s character named Shiva, which was also the title of RGV’s debut Telugu film, comes to Mumbai as the head of a special investigation team. Not a single shot has been included in the teaser that demonstrates the intensity of the character. Ram Gopal Varma is in need of a hit film as in the last few years, he has failed to create a dent at the box office. In fact, the teaser lacks the usual RGV touch in portraying urban violence set in the backdrop of the underworld. Ram Gopal Varma has been claiming that Nagarjuna’s role is the scariest cop ever to appear on Indian celluloid. Officer is all set to open in cinemas on May 25. Related News

© IE Online Media Services Pvt Ltd RGV made his directorial debut in 1989 with Shiva, which had Nagarjuna in the lead role and became a game changer for both of them. All we get is a close-up shot of Nagarjuna’s biceps and a bunch of dialogues that serve no purpose. The teaser leaves us wondering what makes Shiva the police officer so scary. However, the teaser of Officer neither establishes the story nor the intensity of the character played by Nagarjuna. The teaser definitely doesn’t pique our interest. 2018-04-09T12:56:06+05:30″>

Nagarjuna’s Officer will hit screens on May 25. However, RGV and Nagarjuna are very confident that they have got a winner in Officer. His last directorial outing Sarkar 3, starring Amitabh Bachchan and Manoj Bajpayee, was panned by critics besides tanking at the box office.
