Ee Nagaraniki Emaindi fame Viswaksen made his debut as a director now with the film Falaknuma Das. He played the lead role in this official remake of the Malayalam film Angamaly Dairies. The film released today and the makers organized paid premieres all over Hyderabad yesterday. Viswaksen’s father Raju produced the film. Read on the film’s review to know more about the movie.
Falaknuma Das (Viswaksen) is a young and aggressive man who runs a meat business in Falaknuma. His dream is to earn some money, marry his girlfriend, and leave for Germany with her. One beautiful day, he gets involved in a murder case because of a small dispute with rivals in the business. What happens then? What did Das do to come out of it? Did he go to Germany? Forms the story of the movie.
Performances wise, Viswaksen looks good in the lead role. He played his part pretty well and has lived in the skin of the character called Das. But, at times, his performance looks artificial, and it appears odd. The heroines are a big minus point for the movie. Not even a single heroine gets registered with the audiences. Both of them have entirely failed in attracting the attention of the viewers. Uttej’s over-action irks a bit, but he seems to be in the right place. There are a lot of new actors of which only a few succeeded in coming up with decent performance. There is no excellent performance from anyone in the film, but Tharun Bhaskar rocked the show with his role. He, as a police officer is a boost-up for this movie.
The major flawed craft in the film is writing. Without any proper care in re-writing the script, the makers went to the shoot. The flaws are evident in almost every single scene. Since there is no adequate script on hand, everything looks hurried and artificial. The film tries to be realistic, but it goes far from reality. The dialogues get repeated in the famous climax sequence. The soul of the original is completely missing in this Telugu version. The narration is weak, and the screenplay fails to create magic.
The camera work by Viday Sagar Chinta is good. He managed well in capturing the best of old city streets and Falaknuma. The visuals are good. Ravi Teja Girijala’s editing is okay. Production values by Vanmaye Creations, Vishwak Sen cinemas & Terranova Pictures & Media 9 Creative Works are good. The music by Vivek Sagar fails to impress, but he managed well with the background score. The VFX work is not up to the mark.
Falaknuma Das is the remake of Angamaly Dairies, a Malayalam film that introduced a bunch of newcomers to the film industry. There is no unique story in the movie, but the audiences will never get bored of watching the film and what lacks in the Telugu version is a proper screenplay that could elevate the soul of the original. The film concentrates on building a story around Faluknama streets, boozing sessions, aggressive fights but the audiences fail to understand the core point of the movie. Without a proper script in hand, the makers just went on to shoot the film just like that and it costed them too much now. All in all, Falaknuma Das fails at the box-office to reach the expectations, and it just ends as a flawed product!
