Nani New telugu film Sega Movie review:After Ala Modaliendi Nani got good craz in tollywood . He never felt that carz by his new film sega.The Nitya Menon and Nani Combination Had worked again. Even though its not a mega hit but it will sails smoothly.Story:Karthik (Nani) and Vishnu (Karthik Kumar) are two friends who come from a poor background. All is well for them until Vishnu falls head over heels for a call girl Vani (Bindu Madhavi). She is in possession of Karthik’s pimp father and Karthik agrees to do a drug deal with him on a condition that he will free Vani from the business. Karthik doesn’t like the idea of drug dealing but agrees to do it for his friend. Things go out of these commoners hands and they face terrible situations. How they get over the problems is what sums up Sega.
Artist Performances:Nani is completely natural while playing the character of Karthik. He has shown different variations like a brother, lover and also a close friend to Vishnu in the best way possible. Karthik Kumar as Vishnu did his best. Nithya Menon performed well on her limits but her character has a limited scope while Bindu Madhavi is the show stealer as she got into the skin of the character of a prostitute. Rest of the casts were ok.
Technical and Other Departments:Music by Joshua Sridhar is impressive. Three songs are good and the background score is Okay. Om Prakash’s Cinematography is very good. He establishes the rustic side of life in Chennai very well. Anthony’s editing is alright. Art department is up to the mark too.
Director Anjana is a good technician but lacks the skills to make a taut crime thriller. She needs to sharpen her script writing skills to become a successful director. Her efforts are to be commended for making a masculine film when she could always play an escapist with candyfloss film in the name of being a female.
Sega is made with the backdrop of North Madras showcasing the dark side of drugs and Prostitution. However, you don’t get a particular clarity as Sega is strictly related to which genre? A dark film or a love story or a thriller? The story is a bit confusing. The first half has nothing to offer except some breezy moments with a thin storyline while the entire second half moves on a predictable note which takes away the interest of the audiences. Predictable story, confusing narration and ineffective direction played as a spoilsport for Sega.
