Ram New Telugu Film Endukante Premanta Movie Review:
Energetic Star Ram’s much anticipated and eagerly awaited film of this summer Endukante Premanta released today. The film, which was mentioned to be a romantic, action, family drama, stood up to the expectations on many scores and is a slow feel good movie which might go well with youth (like Ye Maya Chesave). If only this feel good film could have been presented in a better screenplay, it would have been a sure shot winner for both Ram and Karunakaran.Story:Ram (Ram) is a quirky youngster from a well-to-do family. His father sends him Paris on a business study, but it turns out to be a trap for him. Sravanthi (Tamanna) is the daughter of the Indian ambassador (Suman) in France. Sravanthi longs for freedom as there is lot of security for her due her father’s position. She escapes from home and falls in love with Ram on the way. She later asks him to return to Hyderabad and visit Gandhi hospital to meet a doctor. The rest of the story is all about what happens when he visits hospital.
Artist Performance:The tag of Energetic Star that appears in the title cards has been completely justified by Ram. He carries the film with ease and his performance is more matured. His dances are a delight to watch and he has given his 100% for this film. Tamanna is apt in the role and looks, as usual, beautiful. Sijayi Shinde is good, while it is Anu Hassan and Rishi of A Film who have taken the major credit for their roles. Surprising as well as disappointing was Kona Venkat, as his performance was bad.
Technical and Other Departments:
Cinematography by Andrew is very impressive. His portrayal of Paris and its Vineyards are extraordinary and has never been captured by others on Indian screen. Editing by Venkateshwara Rao is apt and nothing extraordinary to talk about. The major disappointment comes from the music department, though background score at few places is a standout. Dialogues are catchy. The film, which has twists on two occasions, failed to thrill the audience due to its slow pace narration. The first half of the film is interesting and we are promised of a wonderful fare ahead, but somewhere the director ends up churning a stale second half and dull climax, which could seriously affect the prospects of the film.
Movie Analysis:Endukante Premanta heavily borrows story and scenes from a Hollywood chick film titled ‘Just Like Heaven’ (2005). Just Like Heaven has a straight narration where the nature of the heroine is revealed right in the beginning, where as Endukante Premanta had it revealed in the interval. Just Like Heaven is a pure love story where as Endukante Premanta had crime element in it. Karunakaran is generally good at romance, subtle entertainment and family feel. He is good with entertainment and family feel in this film. But the main feel of romance is not effectively done. And it appears weird at times due to the nature of the subject.
Final View:After Kandareega, Ram had tried to establish himself as an energetic hero and with lots of promise Endukante Premanta was developed. But with slow narrative style and boring moments, this film may not match up to his earlier hit. If only the youngsters enjoy the slow pace then it is sure to be another hit for Ram and Karunakaran.
