There are many instances in Telugu film industry where comedians turned into heroes. Some are succeeded impressively and some went back to their own comedian roles and there are some other who are struggling to get recognized as a hero and not as a comedian. Sunil, who was once a most sought after and one of the best comedian Telugu film industry had belongs to this category where he is finding it very difficult to score even a decent hit. There were three to four movies which were hit in the beginning like Maryada Ramanna, Poola Rangadu, etc. He is getting depressive results from the films he is making from a long time. Kranthi Madhav of Malli Malli Idhi Rani Roju is back with Sunil starrer Ungarala Rambabu produced by K S Ramarao under his Creative Commercials. Let’s see how it works on us as it is releasing today in theatres.

Ram Babu, a happy-go-lucky person, who grew from rags to riches on his own with luck. His mentor suggests him to marry a girl born in a particular zodiac and star to better his condition when he is incurring losses in business. While he is searching for one, he finds his lady luck in Savitri (Miya George), who joins in his travel office as manager. He tries to woo Savitri, who shows interest in him, but she asks him to convince her father Ranga (Prakash Raj), a communist leader in Kerala to take their relationship to next level. How he does it to get his lady luck forms the crux of the story of Ungarala Rambabu.

Cast and Performance

Sunil as Rambabu is good. He is at ease in his comedy timing and his dance moves. He did his best to keep up audience entertained whenever possible in the movie. Mia George is good as Savitri, who joins as an employee in Sunil’s office and eventually becomes his partner of life. She looks gorgeous. Posani Krishnamurali as Baadam Baba is humorous. Prakash Raj as communist leader Ranga is good as usual and he did full justice to the role he is given. All other actors did their best in the roles they are given.

Writing Department

Story of this Ungarala Rambabu is simple and the theme the story conveyed is beautiful. Screenplay is good in first half and is a disappointment in the second half. Dialogues are good.

Technical Departments

Songs composed by Ghibran are okay. They are shot well. His background score is good and helped the movie reach next level in certain sequences. Cinematography by Sarvesh Murari is good and he has shot some nice visuals. Editing could have been much better and it faults the second half. Art department did a nice job and production values are rich.

Verdict

Ungarala Rambabu is all about meeting of capitalist and communist as said by director Kranthi Madhav in his promotional interviews. Rambabu, a businessman who falls for an employee in his travel agency meets her father a communist leader in Kerala to get married with her daughter. The first half of the movie is good and entertaining and when it shifts to Kerala in second half the screenplay loses grip and the communal scenes depicted becomes boring and this half tests the patience of the audience. After all this test of patience there comes a happy ending. Director Kranthi Madhav who scored a blockbuster with his previous movie could have focussed more on story and its screenplay to get audience hooked throughout the movie. To sum up, Ungarala Rambabu is another disappointment in the career of Sunil who is waiting for a decent hit.
