MCA Movie Analysis:
Movie takes off entertainingly showcasing a jobless lazy middle-class youngster’s struggle in performing household chores. A good situational comedy has been generated out of the contexts like helping his vadhina in cutting vegetables, grabbing milk from the booth and groceries from the market. However, after an hour into the movie, we’ll realise neither conflict point nor any new screenplay exist. Poor villainy marred the little scope they have to generate some fear factor. But till interval Nani is able to manage the show single handedly with his superb comedy performance yet again. When Bhumika’s sacrifice to help Nani’s career is revealed, followed by Nani’s confrontation with villains – that interval block is the best moment of the film.
With not so impressive threat to Bhumika – Nani, post interval the film’s graph goes down with routine stuff. Second half is all about cat and mouse game between Hero and antagonist without any exciting factor. However, this drama may appeal to family audience to some extent but for others. Overall, second half could have been much better leaving many to a little disappointment. While “kotthaga Kotthaga rekkalochinattu ga “, “yevandoi Nani garu “songs are fine on screen, all other songs are not upto the mark. Not only with songs, but background score as well Devi Sri prasad disappoints the audience.
This movie was touted as “Double Hat Trick” for Dil Raju (Not sure how, he himself accepted he compensated for DJ losses, but that is a discussion for another day), one would assume he would take extra care to mould this movie well, considering the market value of Nani and new-found craze of Sai Pallavi. Despite having close to 30 crore pre-release business, minimum production values are missing which is glaringly evident in songs and other technical aspects.
- Clean comedy and dialogues in 1st half
- Nani’s performance as Nani
- Bhumika’s characterization, very good decision to pick her this role
- Vadhina, Maridhi theme came out as different backdrop.
- Sai Pallavi is just OK.
- Run of mill second half
- Poor background score (one wonders if DSP really did background for this movie)
- Low production values by Dil Raju’s SVC Creations
CINEBULLET RATING: 2.75/5
