Cast and Performance

Nara Rohith as Raju, a good for nothing, useless middle class guy is fantastic. He is good at his body language and diction. But only drawback from his side is his heavy body. He looks so fat. It’s time for him to shed some weight. Latha Hegde is okay for her role. She looks glamorous as a sports enthusiast. Vennela Kishore is rocking as usual. Sudharshan is nice. Poojitha Ponnada, know for short films is superb. In some scenes she looks glamorous than heroine Latha Hegde. Adhurs Raghu is good in his comic role. Shakalaka Shankar is routine with his comedy acts. Kabir Duhan Singh as Killer Raju is superb. He is so intense in his boxer role. Ali as boxing referee is good. He tried his best to evoke comedy but fails in certain scenes.

Writing Department

Plot of the story mixed with fantasy element by A R Murugadoss is interesting. Screenplay is gripping at some places. Dialogues by Lakshmi Bhupal are good.

Songs composed by Sai Karthik are good. Diamond Girl and Ding Dong songs are nice. His background music is superb but loud. Cinematography by M R Palani Kumar is nice. Visuals of the forest which comes in the beginning of the movie is superb. He tried his best to give fantastic visuals. Editing by Thammi Raju is good. He should have done his job a bit more fine. Art by Murali Kondeti is good. Stunts by Venkat are good. Production values of Sri Keerthi Films is nice.


  • Nara Rohith
  • Story by A R Murugadoss
  • Two catchy songs


  • Not so convincing love track
  • Certain pale comedy scenes
  • Missing logics


Movie starts with five IT professionals going on a camping trip in Ananthagiri hills. Visuals are too good in these scenes. Story of the movie is revealed layer by layer with some humour. Scenes written to generate comedy are so routine. They work to some extent but looks pale. Screenplay takes pace at the interval. First half is interesting and entertaining. Second half starts with boxing matches which are funny and illogical. Its just a story of a useless middle class guy transforming into a boxing champion for love mixed with some fantasy element. Movie becomes emotional in the pre climax backed up by superb score by Sai Karthik. To sum up, Thuntari is interesting movie mixed with fantasy element.
