Akkineni Naga Chaitanya’s teaming with director Maruthi and the served extra advantage of festive season with Ramya Krishna in Atha character made SRA the best pick for this week. At the same time, Atha-Alludu is a proven formula in Tollywood and music by Gopichand is already a chartbuster. Let us see, how far SRA lived up to our anticipations.
Chaitu (Naga Chaitanya), the only son of egoistic millionaire (Murali Sharma) falls in love at first sight with Anu (Anu Emmanuel), the only self-esteemed daughter of Warangal based egoistic, influential woman Shailaja Reddy (Ramya Krishna). To win his love, Chaitu has to settle the things in Shailaja’s house including that of issues between daughter and mother. How Chaitu and his friend (Vennela Kishore) accomplishes their job is rest.
To begin with, Maruthi cursed himself by selecting a storyline that hasn’t got any punch. While the conflict itself is feeble, the way he etched inconsistently egoistic characters has hit the screenplay to a six. Despite this template appears to be formulaically commercial with ample scope to ripen drama and generate humor, Maruthi did not make much use of situations. With egoistic disorder being main theme and three characters suffering on same problem, nowhere he left the main lead to exhibit heroism. This made the film to dawdle here and there before pushing for a known, predictable climax. As a director, Maruthi has to come out of this disorder frame before his image dries up. Dialogues were good at times.
Nizar Shafi’s camera work is top notch. Every frame and each visual appeared colorful, particularly canning of songs is a feast. Couple of songs from Gopi Sunder stood big advantage and his RR is at best in enhancing the scene impact. Editing by Kotagiri is methodical. Finally, production standards from Sithara Entertainments are top notch.
Naga Chaitanya appeared handsome with thick moustache, light beard and stylish costumes. His screen presence is also wonderful in a rather delicately designed role. Anu Emmanuel finally got scope to perform and she did well as egoistic.
