Bollywood Crazies Opinion: My favourite scene in this movie is when Nagarjuna is about to nab a criminal in Pune but the person starts running away from NIA. In the next few scenes, we see Nagarjuna plays a Marathi Song Kombadi Padali on a loud music and the criminal can be seen running away from NIA team. The screenplay and editing in this scene has won my heart. It was a great scene with good sense of cinema by infusing a local song in such a crucial scene. This film is a serious story and don’t expect entertainment from it. It is too serious in nature and the director did a great job making such a good film. This film has been shot in various locations from Mumbai, Pune, Hyderabad, Kathmandu which gives realistic touch to this movie.
Wild Dog movie has been written and directed by Ashishor Solomon. The dialogues has been written by Kiran Kumar. This film has been produced by S Niranjan Reddy and K Anvesh Reddy. The music of this film has been given by S Thaman. The cinematography of this film has been done by Shaneil Deo.
Wild Dog movie budget hasn’t been revealed yet but it would reportedly be in a range of 22 to 25 crores maximum.
Altogether, Wild Dog is one of those movies that is high on content and too serious to its subject.
Last word: Watch it for Nagarjuna’s incredible performance as an honest NIA agent Vijay Verma. The supporting cast has equally did a good job.
