Siddharth New Telugu Film Baava Movie Review:

After some gap siddharth comes with Baava Movie. But This him and His fans Expectation are wrong, BEcause this film seems to be fall down at Box Office.

It is a typical rural love story between a baava and a maradalu with dose of sentiments. Veera Babu (Siddharth) and Varalakshmi (Pranitha) are childhood friends and classmates. Years later their adjoining villages are divided and they lost in touch with each other. She comes to their village again for studies and Veera Babu falls in love with her in the first sight. He tries all tricks to woo her. In the beginning she avoids his advances but reciprocates her love when she learns that he is her childhood friend. On the other hand, Veera Babu’s parents (Rajendra Prasad and Pavitra Lokesh) don’t care much that their son is neither studying nor working and give him free hand to roam around the village and romance the girls. One day, Varalakshmi’s parents fix an alliance with local boy (Samrat). So the worried lovers marry in a temple secretly. This sets motion for a new drama.

Artist Performance:
Siddharth looks good till the interval. Post interval he goes overboard. In some scenes he tries to imitate Kamal Haasan. Pranitha is beautiful in some scenes but in close-ups she looks not that good. Rajendra Prasad has not much role yet he brings some dignity to the character, so does Pavitra Lokesh who plays the role of his wife. Sindhu Tolani does cameo. Brahmanandam’s comedy (a satire on recently release ‘Varudu’) provides some laughs. In rest of the cast, Samrat shines. Tanikella and Ahuti Prasad are okay.

Techincal and Other Departments:
On the tech front, Aravind Krishna’s cinematography stands out. He brings new dimension to the coastal area of Andhra Pradesh on screen. Chakri’s music is okay. There is nothing much to rave about other technicians. Debutant director Rambabu doesn’t score anything with this film.

Times have changed but not our films. Some of our directors are still weaving outdated plotlines and stereotype scenes. Not even taking care to create a single scene of theirs – just rehashing from old movies has become routine for them. Baava is such clichéd film with run of the mill script. The screenplay right from the beginning gives you feeling of déjà vu – with several scenes lifted from various Telugu films set in rustic background. And the climax is completely illogical. Any guy whose brain in the head would not have conceived such idiotic climax sequences.

We have seen such silly similar climaxes in Lakshmi Kalyanam, Avakaya Biryani and Komaram Puli, yet Baava shamelessly includes it. The second-half drags, which may compel you to look for immediate exit door constantly, since the plot isn’t going anywhere but providing constant boredom. Even the so-called flashback episode of the movie is copied from Love Aaj Kal with Siddharth enacting the role of Rajendra Prasad as the latter narrates his own story. Nothing in the movie is original and interesting.

Final View:
Baava is clichéd film with outdated scenes. First half of the movie is passable but second half drags on. Climax is tedious watch. On the whole, it is not worth a dekko. If you a Die Hard Fan of Siddharth watch it at your Own Risk.
