Autonagar Surya Movie Review
After lying in the cans for over 3 years for various reasons including financial woes, Naga Chaitanya-Samantha starrer has seen the light of the day today overcoming many hurdles, hiccups. Without any further delay, check out our review.
Plot: Surya (Naga Chaitanya) is an orphan who aspires to be a mechanic and has a tragic past including convicted of murder. He decides to start afresh. To resurrect his career, Surya chooses Autonagar in which a bunch of goons hold a sway. What are the things that hamper his progress? Who are behind them? Meanwhile, Surya has love-interest Siri (Samantha) who happens to be his cousin. Both are in neck-deep love for each other. But Siri's father (Sai Kumar) plays the spoilsport. Sai Kumar hates Surya as he was born into family of inter-caste. How did Surya overcome all the hurdles and succeeded in his career, personal life form the crux of the story.
Cast: The film predominantly deals with Surya essayed by Naga Chaitanya. Samantha as Sirisha, is easy on eyes and revs up the glam quotient. She plays Chaitu's maradalu role and lived up to the character just like her previous films. Sai Kumar too did justice to his role. Brahmanandam and Venu Madhav's part goes awry and backfires. The special song on Brahmi is so bad that one can understand that it is forcefully injected.
Analysis: Unlike his previous films, director Deva Katta has came up with a wafer-thin plot weaved into 2.37 minute political drama laced with noxious doses of violence along with loads unnecessary scenes. Forced songs and scenes are visibly conspicuous. This Deva Katta's directorial is no different from 'traditional' Telugu directors who largely rely on stereotypes, cliches. The blessing in disguise is the film's dialogues. Although they're heavy, few of them strike a chord. Anoop Rubes's music is soothing and background score works in favour of the film. Intense and emotional scenes have been shot well. The stumbling block for the film is that the director fails to connect the dots. Blame the writer-director for poor handling of romantic track between Naga Chaitanya and Samantha. It could have been done much better. To put it simply, Autonagar Surya is squander of Deva Katta's talent which turns out to be an awful attempt. Watch it at your own risk.
1. Intense, emotional scenes
2. Music and background score
1. Wafer-thin plot

Verdict: Auto Halts!
