Unfortunately, we have few detective movies like Chantabbai and the recent film Agent Sai Srinivas Athreya, detective genre never gets bored as it has a lot of scopes to tell different stories with a detective backdrop, as Agent Anand Santhosh doesn’t offer anything new in terms of story, but what made this mini-series engaging is Shanmukh’s comedy as he is renowned for his comic timing and makers have utilized his skill to the core and the plot didn’t establish well, and that might be one of the reseasons we disconnect from at the beginning, as the show drags even with only 2 episodes. It feels like watching 7 or 8 episodes.
Few comedy blocks worked well and once the story shifts into the serious mode slowly we get bored because that whole thing doesn’t look like a series thing, there are kidnaps happening in the city as it seems like series issues but it has been used like one of the layers, However, the series can be watchable few comedy blocks and few realistic action sequences held in old city areas. and moreover, this series resembles Agent Sai Srinivas Athreya.
Shanmukh Jaswanth as Anand Santhosh is partly good, there are lot of scenes where we can see just like old Shanmukh, there nothing new in his performance but we should appreciate for his makeover and rest of the cast did their best.
Subbu K, who is the writer of this series as Subbu and Shanmukh has worked in Software Developer and Surya as he has written quite well but Arun Pawar failed to make it engageable but he handled a few blocks quite well and will hope he will make good content in the future.
Technically it looks okay as Danush Bhaskar is good at some scenes a lot of scenes are over-saturated and Ajay Arasada did a brilliant job he saved a lot of blocks in the series and the rest of the technical departments did their best.
Finally, Agent Anand Santhosh is a well-made detective series that can be watched by every section of the audience.
