There are many actors in our Telugu film industry who are stereotyped with the type of characters they do and movies they select. They fear to do any characters they feel new to the kind of characters they have been doing fearing that audience may not accept that. Nandamuri Kalyan Ram is one such actor who has been doing some larger than life characters and now tried a new role by selecting a pure love story in the name of “Na Nuvve”. Having directed by Jayendra of 180 fame, it has Tamannah Bhatia as female lead and legendary PC Sreeram as cinematographer. This movie also is a debut for Mahesh S Koneru as producer who is well known in filmy circle as PR of NTR and some other actors. Let’s see how it works on us.

Story

Varun (Kalyan Ram) is a guy who is trying to go to USA but fails at every attempt with some reasons. He accidentally leaves a novel about love and the photograph of him in the book brings her luck and she believes him to be her lucky charm and falls for him. She explains everything to him when they meet and he put a test for her in the name of destiny. If she wins the test, they will be together and if she fails, they will part their ways. What happened with the test form rest of story.

Cast and performance

Nandamuri Kalyan Ram as Varun is good. He tried his best to get into the skin of the character. This movie might be a new makeover for him. Tamannah Bhatia is fine. She played the role of Meera well. Vennela Kishore, Priyadarshi Pulikonda & Bithiri Sathi evoked few laughs with their presence. Tanikella Bharani is fine. Praveen is good. Posani Krishna Murali and LB Sriram are okay. All other actors are fine.

Writing Department

Story of Naa Nuvve is a simple love story woven around the concept of destiny.
Screenplay is bad which has no feel and which also moves in a snail pace.
Dialogues are good.

Technical departments

Songs composed by Sharreth are good to hear which are very well supported by finely written lyrics. Background score is also good to ears. Cinematography by PC Sreeram is nice. This movie might not be the best of him but has some nicely lit shots. Editing is okay but the cuts could have been more crispier. Production values are good.

Verdict

Naa Nuvve is a story of a guy who doesn’t believe in the concept of destiny and a girl who connects everything with destiny. They both meet and fall for each other. Director Jayendra has done a very okayish work with this movie. Right from the script itself he failed to convey what he thought at an idea level and finally made a shallow film. Biggest reason for this film not to work is that it doesn’t have any emotional connect with the audience. Without this emotional connect everything that happened in the movie seems artificial and on top of that heavy background score mocks it. It might be a biggest surprise for audience and fans on how Kalyan Ram has accepted a movie which has no feel and a movie which faltered in every way. “When a movie is bad, we should not give the best music to decorate it because it looks ugly on it” quoted by MM Keeravani and it rightly applies to this movie. As Nandamuri Kalyan Ram tried to come out of the routine, soulless writing and bad direction lets him down.
