Sundeep Kishan and Rakul Preet Singh New Telugu Film Venkatadri Express Movie Review:
Film is not just displaying the same kind of heroism, same kind of dances and repeating same old dialogues. Oh god gives us a break… There are no hard and fast rules for making a film. And only small films can break free from this set formula… but is it fair to call them as small films? Whichever film shows something new to Telugu audience is a big film and Venkatadri Express is one such film. It may not be great film, but in between all these thrash who claim to be greatest films ever made, this is definitely a great film. What does Venkatadri Express got to offer to you? What can you expect from the film and what makes it click? Read on to know all these and much more.
Sundeep (Sundeep Kishan) is an youngster who shows responsibility for the society. His father (Nagineedu) is very strict and he has a policy of disowning his family members if their count of mistakes touch 100. Sundeep has already committed 99 mistakes. His brother Brahmaji’s (Brahmaji) wedding is going to take place in Tirupathi. Sundeep misses his train Venkatadri Express due to an unavoidable issue. The rest of the story is all about whether Sundeep commits his 100th mistake or not!
Sundeep Kishan excels as a solo commercial hero with right amount of performance. He has danced well in the intro song of the film. Rakul Preet Singh is cute and does her part well. Nagineedu is okay as a strict father. Saptagiri gives a nice performance as a victim who loses his bag to Sundeep. His dialect and comedy timing is impeccable. Thagubothu Ramesh did what he is best at – a thagubothu character. He entertains. Brahmaji shows a lot of innocence in his expressions while doing bakra or shy roles. He is perfect fit for the character in this film. Jaya Prakash Reddy, Pruthvi, MS Narayana and Narsing Yadav are good.
Technical and Other Departments:
As told earlier screenplay is the highlight of the film. It was well supported by camera work of experience Chota K Naidu. Maybe because it is the film of his nephew that he seems to have worked hard! Both the songs have been picturised very colourfully. Though there are only two songs, music director Ramana Gogula could exhibit his skills through re-recording.
Debutant director Merlapaka Gandhi comes up with a movie that has right gradients (entertainment and family emotions) in the right mix. He has got decent screenplay/story writing skills. You might feel that movie is over once Sundeep reaches the marriage venue in Tirupati. But the movie picks up after a brief lull to give a perfect ‘happy ending’.
Overall, Venkatadri Express is a time pass film. With lots of laughs and little thrill audience can enjoy this film!
