USUAL  RUN-OF-THE-MILL  LOVE STORY

INTRODUCTION

This is a movie written and produced without much of an application of mind to the fundas and appears to be a desperate effort to resurrect the sinking career of a single-hit chocolate-faced boy, Raja.

STORY

Srikar, the hero played by Raja, is one of those mera bharat mahan protagonists. He flatly refuses his father’s helping hand to go abroad and instead lands in Vizag to sweat out on a non-descript job. As is wont with the present generation of working bachelors, he rents accommodation along with three others. The grand daughter of the landlord, played by Poonam Bajwa, has this silly hobby of fooling around and playing pranks. In a contrived scene of a car chase, the heroine declares her love to Subbu, the villain ! The hero, of course, is saved from competition by the script writer, as the villain abruptly takes off to go abroad. With a song and a splatter of insipid comedy, the bemused audience is compelled to assume that the hero and heroine are finally in love. A cousin of the hero, played by Anu Mehta, enters into the storyline. There are no convincing incidents to make the viewers believe that an intricate puzzle of love triangle is   demanding a solution. The second lady coolly announces her determination to become the Sania Mirza number two of mera bharat. Isn’t it so very un-cinematic to have a climax without the villain ? Subbu, the Telugu filmy version of a psycho, returns as abruptly as he had left. The rut of a climax is routinely traversed with the audience smug with I-know-this-long-ago feeling

ARTISTES PERFORMANCE

Raja and Poonam Bajwa gave reasonable performances. But what can any artiste do when the script doesn’t give even an inch of space to showcase acting talent ? Seasoned Naresh is adequate in the character role. Other players in the supporting roles just went through the motions. What else is there to do? The bunches of comedians, repeated ad nauseum in every film, appear to be on the verge of attracting the Law of Diminishing Returns.

TECHNICAL PERFORMANCE

The Director definitely has a solid grip on the know-how of film making, but sadly unaware of  know-why of Cinema. The script writer seemed content with penning down sixty odd scenes, without trying to tell the audience the why of what each character is doing. The dialogue writer did his best to put some life, but those efforts dissipated amidst the overall mediocrity. The music director strived hard only to impress just the producer and the director. The taste of the audience is taken for granted. The camera gave some visual relief. Stunts are passable.


JUDGEMENT

You are in a piquant situation and need money urgently. Your friend promised to give you a hand-loan and asked you to wait near a theater. Your friend calls you on the mobile and tells you that he may be late by a couple of hours. Since you have nothing  better to do until your pal comes, go and watch Veduka, if it is there in that theater.
