It was close to a decade when Sampoornesh Babu took the internet by storm with the teaser and trailers of his debut movie Hrudayakaleyam as a hero. The movie became a sensational hit making Sampoornesh Babu an overnight sensation. Barring a hit or two, none of his movies worked and Sampoornesh Babu was hardly seen as a comedian or a character artist later.

After a few debacles, Sampoornesh Babu has tried his luck once again with the recent release Dhagad Saamba. Let’s see whether the movie brings any luck to him or not.


Dhagad Samba (Sampoornesh Babu) along with his friend PK (Mahaboob Basha) comes to Hyderabad and become the tenants of a house owned by Apparao. Both the friends eventually fall in love with the daughters of the owner. While everything seems going smooth, Samba gets to know a shocking truth. What’s the truth? Why did Dhagad Samba come to Hyderabad? What happened next? To know everything, you need to watch the movie.

Plus Points:

sampoornesh Babu who evoked laughters with his previous movies has done full justice to his role and his role in Dhagad Saamba is another laugh-riot.

Apart from his comedy, his dancing skills especially the ‘Naatu Naatu’ step in the introduction song is too good.

Minus Points:

The story itself is a big drawback. Though the movie has a nice point to convey, the director kills it with poor writing and boring screenplay. The pre-climax scenes test your patience and is unbearable.


On the whole, Dhagad Saamba is a below-average horror-comedy movie that has nothing new to offer. You can wait to watch in OTT.
