Story: Hari (Shravan Reddy) comes to Hyderabad with hopes of becoming rich and successful.

What did this lead to and whom did Hari choose among the two to spend the rest of his life forms the story.
Performances: Shravan Reddy is very impressive in his role. He fits the role perfectly and nailed the romantic portions. He has to remain somewhere between being a good guy and a helpless guy and he has achieved it. Ruhani Sharma is good in her role. Simrat Kaur is glamorous and performed well in all the steamy scenes. Surekha Vani, Mahesh Achanta and Ajay appear in supporting roles.
Technicalities: Camerawork is very good and brings in a much needed rich urban and slightly dark feel to the film. Music is good. Editing is neat. Production values are good.
Analysis: This film is a romantic thriller with a decent dose of bold/steamy scenes. First of all, amidst the dozens of films which try to attract youth with so called adult content involving double meaning jokes and crass comedy, this film is a relief. It stays true and does justice to the genre and it’s target audience. There is no comedy of any sort. Along with some well executed steamy scenes , the film offers an engaging screenplay and good performances which hardly bore us. The first half moves off in an engaging way. The movie’s tempo drops a bit in the second half where the film hovers around the same place for a while. The climax is impressive enough and reminds us of Mahesh Bhatt films. Director MS Raju, who usually deals with feel good love stories has taken a new route and succeeds to a good extent too at it. This film is mainly aimed at youth or anyone who enjoys romantic thrillers with a bold touch and will most probably not disappoint them.
On a whole: Dirty Hari is a proper adult film and delivers what it promised to offer.
