The movie Clap started two and a half years ago but was delayed due to Coronavirus situations. With that, another sports film Good Luck Sakhi, starring Aadhi Pinisetty in a key role and Keerthy Suresh played the lead, released before Clap and received mixed responses. But in Clap, Aadhi is the protagonist. Aadhi meets with an accident just at the beginning of the movie and the audience gets shocked to see Aadhi limping on one leg in the next scene.

Vishnu (Aadhi Pinisetty) intends to become an athlete since childhood. He aspires to go to Nationals on behalf of India. He is selected for the Nationals with the encouragement of his father (Prakash Raj). He loses his leg in an accident and his father too. Due to which, Vishnu’s life is turned upside down. However, Mitra (Akanksha Singh), another sportsperson who loves Vishnu, insists on marrying him. Though they two got married and have been living in the same house for six years, they do not live like a wife and husband. The anguish of being physically challenged constantly depresses Vishnu. One day he comes to know about a good athlete named Bhagyalakshmi, who abruptly stops running due to the death of her father. Vishnu decides to bring her to Hyderabad, offer good coaching and make her a national champion. But the SIA President Venkatrao (Nassar), who crashed Vishnu’s life six years ago, blocks his efforts of making Bhagyalakshmi a national level athlete. How Vishnu saved Bhagyalakshmi with his tricks and cons is the rest of the story.
After many days, Aadhi Pinisetty got a good role. The audience can see another dimension in his acting. Aadhi has once again proved that he can do justice to any character, either a stylish hero or villain. The scenes where Aadhi appears with half legs are very natural. In each scene, Aadhi clearly presented the character’s pain. Akanksha Singh performed nicely within the limits and up to the mark. But her character could have been further elevated. Krisha Kurup as Bhagyalakshmi played the lead role in this movie. This is her first Telugu film. As a young athlete, she performed well and her eye expressions are impressive. Nassar as the villain, Brahmaji as the man who licks his boots, Prakash Raj as the hero’s father along with other main characters are perfectly suited to their characters.
The director shot every scene as naturally as possible without going into hangovers anywhere. Conversations are also good. The song Chinna Mata Paiki Radha Evarikosam Varena makes sense and suits the situation. Maestro Ilayaraja’s music is another highlight of the movie. Cinematography by Praveen Kumar is classy.
There have already been a lot of films set on the politics at Sport Authorities. Many films are based on the stories of players or coaches who seek revenge for their humiliation. This is also a similar story but with a sincere effort. The key point of the film is about how the S.I.A. President abused his power six years ago for his son to repeat the same for his daughter. With that, the hero struggles to stop the wrong practices. The main point is that if there is perseverance, even a woman from the grassroots can bear the flag of victory on the field of sports. Those who love sports themed movies and motivational movies will certainly love Clap.
