Pagal Movie review- 

Paagal, although a famous movie is not very appreciated in the Telugu Film Industry. The main reason behind this is the plot which the paagal movie review says is loosely set. The audience is not very much happy about the entire storyline. No wonder, why the movie is considered a flop with a very less Box office collection. 

Positives-First half of the movie is very interesting and entertaining. The sound and BGM teams have done really well. 

Negatives- The film has a very poor storyline and plot. The second half seems to be stretched and dragged. The last part takes a revenging angle.
