Dr Rajasekhar has made many attempts to come back into form, but in vain. He has finally selected a story and role that suits his age and body language.

The moment we settle into the seats, "PSV Garuda Vega" gives the feel that we are going to watch a different thriller. The director arrests you with his slick presentation.

After a bit of a bad start with the scenes between Rajasekhar and Pooja Kumar, the director changes gears and puts it on a riveting mode. Thereafter, it is a thrill ride till the interval bang. The way interval point reaches should be commended.

The bomb-tracking sequence on hand and Rajasekhar nabbing the hacker on the other is dealt with finesse.

On surface, it is a simple line -- an NIA officer on a mission to nab criminals, but director has mounted this line on a large scale with elements of nuclear technology theft.

The character of Aadith is similar to that of Akshara Haasan in recently released 'Vivegam' but here Praveen Sattaru has weaved it differently and has made the character all-important.

The lavishly shot action thrills in Georgia, Bangkok and North India have brought richness to the frames. Unlike in other recent action dramas, here the action pieces are realistic and stylish.

Except for Pooja Kumar track and Prudhvi's boring role, first half of the movie is spotless. The film also moves on in a thrilling way post-interval but it also turns regular and pace slows down. Moreover, after all the heightened drama, the climax seems a bit of a joke.

Kishore’s character turns a wimp despite all the hype around him in the early scenes. Also the director has taken too many cinematic liberties in the final portions.

It is hard to believe that in a scam where entire top-ranking departments of Indian government are supposedly involved, behave in such shoddy manner. The other minus is the comic sequences.

If the second half of the film was narrated more tightly, it would have made the film even better.

On the whole, "PSV Garuda Vega" is a decent action thriller. It is a genre-specific action film with right story line and top-notch visuals and production values that may give new lease of life to Rajasekhar.

Bottom-line: Comeback for Rajasekhar
