What is bad:
G.Nageswara Reddy also wrote the story and screenplay of the film apart from directing it. ‘Kasko’ is a typical revenge drama which an extremely predictable storyline. In fact the actual story is so less that it comes as filler between extended action sequences, especially in the first half. Gowri Pandit’s role is poorly written. Except for a song and couple of scenes, she hardly contributes to the film. Shweta Basu Prasad is extremely loud with her dialogues and is nothing more than a glam doll in the film. There are way too many villains in the film which gives scope to more fights and action sequences. Pradeep Rawat’s role towards the end of the film is ridiculous. Apart from extending the film by an extra 20 minutes, his characterization completely fails to arouse interest.
Premji’s music is average except for a couple of songs. Cinematography by Agilan is impressive especially in action sequences and songs. Editing by Praveen is adequate. Action choreography throughout the film is good. G.Nageshwara Reddy’s could have worked on the screenplay and story of the film. The direction is good in parts, although it could have been much better.
There’s a dialogue in the film where Vaibhav asks Brahmanandam, ‘Oka Mostaru Kottamantara..Bheebatsanga kottamantara’. If only, Nageshwara Reddy had applied the same concept while writing the story, ‘Kasko’ would have been an interesting film. In another hilarious scene, Vaibhav calls Shweta Basu as ‘Banda Jyothi’ and it is left to our imagination to decide whether it was intentional or not. ‘Kasko’ starts with a bang and ends up as a ‘Bheebathsamaina’ head ache which is cliched, predictable and probably pointless drama too. Thumbs down for ‘Kasko', the only saving grace of the film is Brahmanandam’s comedy and the title of the film itself which is short and simple.
