Success proves our knack is what we believe and is proved. But, sometimes everything has a limitation. Commercial failure of Hanu Raghavapudi’s Andhala Raksashi failed in not proving director’s talent. Hanu got so much applause and critical acclaim for his debut directorial “Andhala Raksashi”. He came back again after 3 years of gap with “ Krishnagadi Veera Prema Gaadha” starring Nani and Mehrene Kaur Pirzada produced by 14 Reels Entertainments. Let’s see how it works on us!!
Krishna (Nani) is a cowardly yet simple and easy going die-hard balayya fan from Rayalaseema. He biggest weakness is his fear. Mahalaxmi (Mehrene Kaur Pirzada) is sister of Ramaraju (Harish), who is said to be bodyguard like protector and brother’s son of Rajanna, a demigod in Rayalaseema. Both Krishna and Mahalaxmi are lovers right from their school days which is so called Tuneega Tuneega love story. Nani always fear to reveal their love to their friends and brother of Mahalaxmi. Their love is known only to them. ACP Srikanth (Sampath Raj) is a stubborn police officer and brother of Rajanna. One night a gang attacks on the family of Rajanna and Nani is given a task to make sure children reach ACP Srikanth home safely with a promise to marry him with his sister Mahalaxmi by Ramaraju. Who is the gang?? Why they attacked Rajanna family?? How Nani rescue the children?? How he marry Mahalaxmi?? forms the rest of the story.
Cast and Performance
Nani as Krishna is so convincing that we forget that he is Nani doing Krishna’s role. His funny acts and his mannerisms are note worthy. Its the rise of actor Nani as a star. Mehrene Kaur Pirzada as Mahalaxmi is nice. She did superb job with her debut film. She looks cute and beautiful on screen and is apt fit for the role Mahalaxmi. Harish is good. Sampath Raj as ACP Srikanth is added advantage. His power packed performance is sure shot delight to watch. Murli Sharma as Don David did a good job. 30 years Prudhvi did his bit to this movie as usual. Three children did superb job. Prabhas Sreenu, Brahmaji and other did their best.
Plot of the story is good and simple. The way Hanu Raghavapudi moulded it into a funny and interesting way is worth appreciation. Dialogues by Hanu and Jai Krishna are superb. They are interesting, funny and goes with the flow of the film. Screenplay is superb.
Songs composed by Vishal Chandrasekhar are nice. His compositions are beautifully complemented by lyrics of Krishna Kanth. His musical talent is proved with the background music for the first scene itself. He is an apt and perfect selection for the movie. Cinematography by J Yuvraj, who is said to be Rathnavelu’s assistant is excellent. Visuals look stunning and colourful. Editing by M R Varma is perfect. Action blocks and chase sequences are composed well by Vijay. Production values are nice.
