According to the latest reviews, Prabhas, the leading man, fits the bill perfectly in this larger-than-life role. UAE Censor Board member Umair Sandhu watched Saaho and he said, “Prabhas makes absolutely no mistakes in getting his act together. There’s no denying the fact that he plays the perfect Pan India hero in this film. He acts effortlessly, fights in style and charms the audiences."
Shraddha Kapoor as sexy cop:
In the movie, Shraddha looks glamorous with fitted cop uniforms and some short numbers seen in the songs. Shraddha Kapoor debuts in the south Indian film industry with Saaho, plays Amritha Nair, a crime branch officer who apparently accompanies Prabhas in his mission. She is seen handling heavy guns, doing action sequences and showing off her dance moves. After wooing north audiences now, the actress is all set to shine in the south.

Saaho's high octane action sequences
Saaho's stunt choreographer Kenny Bates has designed high octane scenes for the film. Action sequences shot in Abu Dhabi are a must watch. The makers have spent Rs 50-70 crore for this eight-minute sequence. Pegged as India's biggest action thriller, the movie has lots of Hollywood style action moments like cars getting crushed, people getting shot, glasses smashing to smithereens and our hero (Prabhas) fighting the baddies.
Saaho special effects:
In the above point, we have mentioned about the action scenes. Here we will throw some light on the special effects that were used to create such mindblowing visuals. From remote control cars to real trucks being blown off on the sets, VFX technicians get all the credits. It is said that Saaho makers hired top-class technicians from around the world to make it possible. That apart, Sabu Cyril's production designs and stylish costumes need special mention for the successful outcome. VFX is the reason why the film's release got postponed too.
Saaho’s music encapsulates a mix of different styles. Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy, Guru Randhawa, Tanishk Bagchi and Badshah have come together to make music for the film. Tanishk Bagchi’s Psycho Saiyaan to Badshah's Bad Boy to Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy's Baby Won’t You Tell Me, all the songs have a different flavour, which goes with the plot.
