It seems to be gopichand new film not Convinced the audince that much, Even though krishan Vasmi Hard work will not add any gilms of hope to the film
Story:Ram Prasad alias Bujji (Gopichand) is the son of wealthy farmer and social activist Anjaneya Prasad (Rajendra Prasad). The family is a joint family where Anjanneya Prasad has three daughters, three son-in-laws, and grand children besides his son. Bujji comes across RajaRajeshwari alias Raji (Tapsee) and after few happenings he falls in love with her. Raji is the daughter of Chamundeswari, a powerful political leader (Roja). The families are happy with their love and agree for marriage and the wedding takes place on a grand manner. However, unexpected happenings cause problems between both the families and the couple gets separated then and there. How the issues get solved and how Bujji wins back his wife forms crux.
Artist Performances:Gopichand looked good in his elements. His character is different from his regular roles. His mass fans will be disappointed to see him an in a very soft role. Tapsee looked gorgeous and she is a visual feast to the audiences. This is in fact the best role she was offered but she needs to work on her expressions. Her dubbing is not going well with her instead she should have preferred a professional to dub for her role.
Shradda Das added the spice with her bikini stuff and she has done justice to the role. Rajendra Prasad once again delivered a powerful performance as a matured father. Naresh and Roja were perfect. Ahuti Prasad and Venu Madhav are fine.
Analysis:Krishna Vamsi did well in building up the story. There are few ‘overtone’ scenes which seemed bad in taste, but on a whole the flow is neat until interval point. During the mid break, the film changes color and Krishna Vamsi brought that on to the screen in a convincing manner. He has brilliantly shown how small ego clashes lead to big fights in marriages.
The overall feel at the interval time will be positive and raises hopes over the next hour. But Krishna Vamsi found it tough to change the mood of the film all of a sudden. He faltered a bit and the confusions in the characters and their behavior is clearly visible. The movie changes track when it lands in Mauritius. Despite being funny at times, the whole situation looks forced and unconvincing.
The last act in the film was dealt pretty badly. Although that is the only conclusion, he could give to this story, Krishna Vamsi pumped in too much drama and the characters behave in a weird fashion that they get on audience nerves. Mogudu is sheer disappointment on a whole. Despite preaching family values it won’t appeal to family audiences too.
Babu Shankar’s music is catchy and almost all the songs were captured well. Cinematography is top-rated, editing is slick and production values are rich. Dialogues were good. Screenplay in the second half is poor though first half was good. Direction was okay.
Final View :Mogudu could have been a good family drama with Krishna Vamsi’s strong script. But, too much melodrama and overtone scenes played a spoilsport. the second half was a let down though the first half was pretty decent. Mogudu has less chances to survive at the box-office
