Raviteja new Telugu Film Nippu Movie Review:Nippu is a film made for Ravi Teja fans’ only and it doesn’t disappoint them one bit. However, for others it is a challenge to sit through the whole film. Neither is ‘Nippu’ as hilarious and entertaining as ‘Mirapakay’ and ‘Don Seenu’ nor as action packed as ‘Vikramarkudu’. All the hype that the film created seems to have gone down the drain. And, in Ravi Teja’s career this film is definitely going to be remembered as one of those films the actor would never want to talk aboutStory:Surya aka Suri (Ravi Teja) and Srikanth (Sriram) are good friends. Srikant is the son of Murthygaru (Rajendra Prasad) and his sister is Meghana (Deeksha Seth). Suri, who always fights against injustice, turns a bitter foe of Peddanna alias Raja Goud (Pradeep Rawat). In Saudi Arabia, Srikanth falls in love with Vaishnavi (Bhavana), daughter of Peddanna. Accidentally, Vaishnavi (Bhavana) had a fatal fall from hostel building. Sriram was arrested by Saudi police and the court sentences him to death. Surya, in order to save his friend’s life, compromises with Peddanna. He manages to get a letter of excuse from him and saves his friend from death sentence. At this juncture, Suri comes to know that Vaishnavi was not killed but it is an accidental death. The rest of the story deals with how Suri fights against Peddanna? Will the love track between Suri and Meghana turn successful? Is there any twist in Vaishnavi’s murder? Answers to all these questions form part of the climax.
Artist Performance:Ravi Teja is energetic. He has maintained the same ease in dance and action sequences. His comedy timing is also very apt and superb. In fact, it is he, who shouldered the onus of making the film successful from the beginning to the end. Deeksha Seth is very glamorous and makes a good screen presence in the film. She has maintained good chemistry with the hero and both of them appeared to be a good screen pair. Rajendra Prasad, Jayaprakash Reddy, Pradeep Rawat and others are good.
Technical and Other Departments:Gunasekhar has once again faltered in the narration of the story, though he has prepared a good plot for the film. He has made the same mistake of his earlier film (Varudu) that he lost grip on the story after the first half, an hour of the second half. However, he picked it up in the end as the climax is good. Dialogues by Kona Venkat are good and appropriate to Raviteja. Though, the film’s narration is bad, the only solace is the cinematography by Sarvesh Murari. He showed excellent quality in action and songs sequences, while editing by Gauthamraju is adequate. Action by Kanal Kannan is good but some scenes looked very cinematic. Music by Thaman is good.
Analysis:Basic premise of the film revolves around friendship but unfortunately the director fails to cover either the friendship or the family angle. Instead of focusing on the script and screenplay, director Gunasekhar shifts all his focus on Ravi Teja only to disappoint everybody in the process. The first half of the film is blessed with appropriate amount of comedy; slapstick though, nothing sensible and towards the end of the first half the film the story actually begins. The second half of the film is all over and the development of the story in it is totally clichéd.
Final View:For all those, who like Ravi Teja’s movies, this film is no different from the earlier films. But if your are looking for a time-pass film, it is recommended.
