Kerintha Movie Review
Jai (Sumanth Ashwin), Sid (Vishwanath), Priya (Tejaswi), Nookaraju (Parvatheesham) and Bhavana (Sukeerthi) who join the same college become friends in no time. Jai falls madly in love with Junior Doctor Manaswini (Sri Divya). The same one-sided love happens in the case of Sid-Priya & Nookaraju-Bhavana. Did their Love Stories end on a happy note or not?
Sumanth Ashwin in fine in the role of good-looking youth craving for love. All that Sri Divya has to do in this movie is looking as beautiful as possible and flaunt the perfect smile when required. Tejaswi Madiwada's character hasn't been etched well but she makes the opportunity count. Parvatheesham impresses big time with his Srikakulam accent. Vishwanath and Sukeerthi have played their roles well.
- Nookaraju's Comedy
- Songs & BGM
Sai Kiran Adivi picked up a College-based content aiming a success on par with 'Happy Days' & '3 Idiots'. What worked for those films in 'novelty' and what you find in 'Kerintha' is forced comedy, absence of feel-good factor and lacklustre narration.
Mickey J Meyer's Music and Vijay K Chakravarthy's Cinematography are the only saving grace of 'Kerintha'. Dialogues by Abburi Ravi are decent enough. Editing is poorly done. Production Values are fine.
Sai Kiran Adivi completely failed, be it the characterizations or treatment. It appeared like he himself lacked clarity on what he should focus and elevate in the subject chosen by him. Upon watching 'Kerintha', One gets the doubt if Dil Raju has completely lost his midas touch. Step into the theaters if you don't mind spending nearly 2-and-a-half-hours of your life watching routine content.
Box Office: 'Kerintha' received very limited release and Dil Raju himself complaining about the dearth of theaters for his movie reflects the severity of the situation. So, You can't expect wonders when the content is bad and the less screen count hurts the prospects even more.
Verdict: For Routine Cinema Lovers!
