2.25 / 5.0

1945 is scripted and directed by Sathya Siva. The film has Rana Daggubati, “Sathyaraj,” “Nassar,” Regina Cassandra, and “Sapthagiri” in the main cast. Yuvan Shankar Raja composed the music. Sathya Ponmar cranked the camera, and Gopikrishna is the editor. Kalyan produced the film.


Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose decides to fight against the British, unlike the Gandhian way, and starts INA. At the same time, Adi moves to Burma for his business. He gets engaged to the daughter of a Tahsildhar working for the British. Before his marriage, he had to fight against the British as they crossed their limits. How did he face the British forms the rest of the plot.

Star Performance

Rana is good with his role and did well in the action sequences. Nassar and Regina fit well in the story, and Sapthagiri’s comedy moments worked out. Sathyaraj didn’t get enough screen space.


The film is set in the pre-independence period, and the art design is excellent. The stars are correctly picked, and they fit well. Yet, some characters are not designed properly. The story doesn’t seem to be a complete one. Although the stars are good in their performances, the patriotic feeling is missing. The big drawback is that Rana didn’t lend his voice, and the voice didn’t sync well. The cinematography and music are good. The editing should have been better.

What’s There?

  • The performances of the stars are neat

What’s Not There?

  • The writing lacks a punch
  • The editing department should have worked a bit better


If the writing had been better and Rana dubbed his voice, the film might have been better.
