Nannu Dochukunduvate is first film for Sudheer Babu as producer, RS Naidu as a director and Nabha Natesh as heroine. Let’s see whether Sudheer Babu’s faith in the subject will live up to expectations like the surprise hit Sammohanam.
Karthik (Sudheer Babu) is a selfish workaholic and has goals in life. To escape marriage with Maradalu Satya (Varshini) and against his father’s (Nasser) wish, Karthik ropes in Meghana (Nabha Natesh), a short film actress as his love interest Siri. In the process of convincing his father, both Karthik and Meghana aka Siri fall in love. But, Karthik has to choose one among love and goal.
ND has a simple premise with sensibilities at romance, drama and fine drawn humor. Though situations developed by RS Naidu for narrative to go forward are clichéd and tested, freshness in the pairing of Sudheer Babu, Nabha Natesh has done the trick to major extent. In fact, ND suffers with substantial hollowness in second half where story moves nowhere and dragged consistently. Yes, ND is best suited for a short film material than that of full length feature film. Screenplay is predictable and so is the writing department added a contemporary touch. Suresh Raguthu’s camera work is pleasing with decent color combinations while a bit of sharpness in Chota K Prasad’s editing could have made second half crispy. Ajaneesh Loknath’s musical score is mediocre both on songs and RR. Production standards from Sudheer Babu are at acceptable level for a concept of this standard.
Sudheer Babu’s performance as Karthi is settled and matured. His selfish, work mindedness at office or emotional bonding with dad Nasser or the love track with Nabha, definitely his character had multiple shades to excel. Nabha Natesh is the show stealer. Though she did not amaze right from scene one, the way her characterization is beautifully written, nicely executed with balance made ND a superb debut for this expressive faced girl. Her energetic nature and lively body language as short film actress nurtured good fun. Even on emotional drive, Nab.
