Siddarth Narayan is back with a new romantic comedy. Nothing totally new but nothing wholly boring – his usual pattern.
After the killer music album I was hoping for an other
‘Bommarillu’, but the movie has failed to achieve what it had promised through the promos and the songs.
Geeta is village girl, she loves her father, her father loves her, she loves her village and a few other clichéd elements are what start the film. Geeta comes to Hyderabad for graduation and there she stays at her uncle’s place. Siddarth playing Sidhu (again) is an urban stud and is a friend of Geeta’s cousin.
Without much bore the film goes about its usual clichéd business. Geeta initially hates Sidhu then likes him and so on. Prakash Raj (playing Prakash) and Ramya Krishna (playing Rajya Lakshmi) are Sidhu’s parents who have broken up 18 years back. Prakash comes back to India after about 10 years to start his own company.
After 2-3 badly placed songs Sidhu and Geeta put their marriage proposal before Geeta’s dad. But, Subramanyam (Geeta’s dad played by Naser) says NO coz he believes that a guy brought by a single parent does not know the value of a relationship. And then in a very ‘Nuvvostanante Nennodantana’ (Siddarth’s first hit in Telugu) kind of way he challenges that he’ll patch up his parents differences and will win Geeta.
The movie seems like a mixture of all the previous hits of Siddarth. The makers have been fooling around with the same ‘Bommarillu’ kind of emotions through out the film.
The cinematography of the film is just wonderful. The right sort for a teenage romantic flick with the right colors pleasantly put before us. Even though the songs were real good they couldn’t help the movie much because of the bad placement. And do watch out for Brahmanandam playing Gachibowli Diwakar – a crazy cricket fan for a few hearty laughs in the film.
In case you haven’t seen it yet, you can wait for the DVD. There are a lot of new releases to catch up with.
