Director Mohan Krishna Indraganti is known for choosing plots which are not run-of-the-mill kind. This time he has come up with a slapstick comedy which has been missing for a regular movie buffs of late. His last outing Gentleman fared well at the box office and actor Advi Sesh and Avsrala's last film were received well by the audience. So does this film continue the purple patch for the trio?
The film is a romantic comedy based on lives of four characters - Adivi Sesh, Eesha and Srinivas Avasarala, Aditi. The two young couples Advi and Eesha, Avasarala and Aditi fall for one another, but what forms a twist in the tale is with the entry of Vennela Kishore (Shree Chilipi). As the name suggests he does all naughty and weird stuff which makes the lives of the two couples topsy-turvy. What happens with the entry of Vennela Kishore forms the crux of the story.
Advi and Avsrala delivered a bang on performance and it is needless to say how good the latter is. The Two Telugu girls who have next door image justified their roles and never went overboard. But the person who hogged the limelight and must be given credit for carrying the movie on his shoulder is Vennela Kishore. After the entry of the comedian a tinge of humor seeps in and you are sure to laugh your guts out with his comic timing in almost every frame of his.
The filmmaker has a track record of giving importance to production values in his films. And this film too has been short aesthetically brilliant. Though it's a low budget film but one can't underscore in rich locales and good background score. The first half certainly keeps you engaged with the interval being precise. Despite the second half falling in pace Vennala Kishore's quirky lines runs the show.
One time watchable fare to have laugh riot.
