Rating: 3 stars

Narayana Rao (Sai Kumar) runs a charitable trust in Anantapur, which helps village people. The trust also owns hundreds of acres of land which actually belongs to a royal family. But Kabir (Ravi Kishan) is eyeing these lands.


Narayana Rao approaches the court, which orders him to provide proof that the land actually belongs to the royal family, within a month. Thus, he sets out in search of the said royal family members.

Meanwhile, Balu (Sai Dharam Tej) is a cab driver who lives with his drunken father (Rajendra Prasad). He falls in love with a cop, Bellam Sridevi (Raashi Khanna), and tries his best to woo her.

In the meantime, Balu meets a child, Rajan (Mikail Gandhi), an orphan, and takes him home. A gang, led by Ravi Kishan, kidnaps the boy and takes him to Odisha. Balu on knowing the truth about the boy, decides to save him.


After the blockbuster Pataas, Anil Ravipudi is back with a typical potboiler. The story of Supreme is nothing great and the director has concentrated only on the songs and action scenes with massy dialogues.

While the subject reminds us of Chiranjeevi’s old film Pasivadi Pranam (1987), as the story revolves around a small child, this one is completely commercial, meant to impress the front rows.

The first half of the film is entertaining in bits and pieces but the second half is a bore. Even the remixed Chiranjeevi song Andam Hindolam is not impressive.
When it comes to performance, Sai Dharam Tej impresses with his energy. He is good at dancing and action scenes, but in Supreme he has also shown his comic prowess.


Raashi Khanna as the cop looks good and adds the needed glamour quotient. Her comedy scenes too are good. For senior actor Rajendra Prasad, it was a routine performance while Ravi Kishan’s role is a meaty one. Raghubabu entertains with his punch dialogues and his scenes are hilarious.

But it is the child artiste, Mikail Gandhi, who steals the show. He is cute and has performed very well. Vennela Kishore shines once again with his comic timing. However, Posani and Srinivas Reddy’s scenes are a waste.

On the technical front, the cinematography is good though the music is just average. The dialogues are entertaining and some of them have the required punch. The dialogue “Zing zing... amazing” is funny and has worked out well.
In conclusion, Supreme is a mass entertainer and the director has intentionally made it so.
