Story
Subramanyam (Prakash Raj) is a lower middle class widower with two kids. He works as a clerk in a government office and runs his family on tight budget. He never compromises on his kids education and he spends a fortune on their studies. But his son Karthik (Aakash) is not interested in studies, but is a talented cricket player. Subramanyam can’t just leave his son staying away from education and a secured future. In one angry moment, he hits his kid and goes into coma. Subramanyam then realizes his mistake and starts to fight against the education system.

Performances
Prakash Raj is brilliant as an actor. He has excelled in every scene. Aakash is fine within his limitations. Radhika Apte is neat. Murali Sharma’s role is interesting but poorly etched. Gollapudi, Tanikella Bharani and Brahmanandam did their bit.

Technicalities
Concept of the film is good. Screenplay in the second half is pretty bad. Dialogues are natural. Cinematography is fine. Editing could have been better. Ilayaraja’s background score is an asset. Songs are in sync with the mood of the film. Production values are up to the mark. Prakash Raj’s direction is good in parts. He should have handled the second half in a better way. Talk show scene is crucial from the subject point of view, but Prakash Raj failed as a director in that scene. Even the climax scenes highlight his shortcomings as a director.

Analysis
Dhoni is a predictable story right from the outset. We know what it is going to offer from the trailers itself. What counts is how the story was narrated. Prakash Raj has only half succeeded in getting his narration correct. First half of the film is really good with some good humor sprinkled here and there. Prakash Raj sets the right atmosphere for a middle class family and he has brought the life in to the film with natural scenes. At times we feel like we are watching our neighbor’s or our own life on screen.
