Heroes Allari Naresh, Sunil and director Bheemaneni Srinivasa Rao haven’t scored hits for long. The trio teamed up for remake of Tamil hit movie Velainu Vandhutta Vellaikaaran. Will this movie provide much needed break for them? Let’s discuss in the review part…
Veera Babu (Allari Naresh) is right hand of a tailor turned MLA Jacket Jankiraman (Jayaprakash Reddy), a loyal aide to the local minister. Jacket’s close rapport with the minister doesnt go down well with the latter’s brother-in-law (Posani Krishna Murali) and another politician (Raja Ravindra). Before the minister dies, he confesses to Jacket about the hidden Rs 500 cr to be used for the betterment of people. Jacket meets with an accident and unfortunately, enters coma. He must come out of coma to unite Veera Babu with his girlfriend (Chitra Shukla) and Veera Babu’s best friend Suri Babu (Sunil) with his fiancée (Poorna) and also to find the hidden money. Rest of the story is what efforts Suri Babu and Veera Babu put in to resolve all the problems.
Bheemaneni Srinivasa Rao is known for remaking super hits of other language films in Telugu. Silly Fellows is also remake of Tamil hit. However, comedy worked only in very few places. Bheemaneni showed his experience in dealing pre-climax episode which is most hilarious part of whole film. Anish Tharun Kumar’s cinematography is old-fashioned wherein music by Sri Vasanth adds to the negatives. None of the songs are pleasing, though background score is reasonable. Editing was not sharp and production values of Blue Planet Entertainment LLP and People Media Factory are acceptable..
Onto artists, Allari Naresh and Sunil are regular and didn’t make strong impact. There’s indeed nothing great to speak about their performances. Heroines Chitra Shukla and Poorna are given less scope. Although Chitra got couple of songs, Poorna is restricted for 3 to 4 scenes. Nandini Rai of Bigg Boss 2 fame is awful as a record dancer. Jayaprakash Reddy is the show stealer. His spotless comic timing kept audien.
