Plot

Following retirement from espionage, Agent S 99 lives a quiet and secluded life. However, a journalist, who has exposed the dirty trade of Taluk Dar Pasha, is in danger, forcing S 99 to come out of retirement and do all that he can to keep her safe. Will he succeed?

Star Performances

Jagan Mohan Chindam is the reason why this film works. Despite the not-so-impressive ambiance of the film, he somehow manages to make this film slightly watchable.

Analysis

A former secret agent tries to lead a quiet life. However, one bad guy tries to harm an honest person doing his/her duty, and the secret agent is forced to return to action. Hmmm, where have we heard this before?

Oh wait, that’s the basic plotline of most of the movies done by Bruce Willis/Jason Statham in the latter part of their lives! On paper, the movie ‘S 99’ looks like a screenplay left out from their archives, adapted later into a Telugu film!

Going by the initial stills, there should be little to no expectations, especially regarding the visuals and the editing of the film. However, is the narrative good enough? Surprisingly, the answer is yes, but not very much. If you’re a fan of some over-the-top action spoofs, you can opt for this film. On that note, Jagan Mohan Chindam has done a decent job.

The acting performances in this film are far from bad. However, they’re not completely outstanding either, just sandwiched in the middle. This is why the movie ‘S 99’ packs some punch, even if just for basics. The runtime is also not very long, which means that the audience can enjoy the experience of some content.

However, that is it. In terms of technicality, the film is far from impressive. The effects are rudimentary, and even the action scenes are not nuanced in any way.

What's There?

  • The entertainment quotient of the narrative
  • Some performances, especially from Jagan Mohan Chindam

What's Not There?

  • Not-so-great screenplay
  • Rudimentary visual effects
  • Action scenes that go over the top

Verdict

‘S 99’ is not something out of the blue. A predictable plot, followed by effects that appear straight from the movies of the early 2000s. However, some acting performances, coupled with a few entertaining scenes, salvage the film to a large extent. If you want some mindless entertainment, you can give this film a try!
