Ra Ra Krishnayya Movie Review
Although Sundeep Kishan scored a hit with Venkatadri Express last year, his next film D for Dopidi took away that charm. In his latest release Ra Ra Krishnayya, he teams up with his Routine Love Story heroine Regina. Let's check out how the verdict is.
Plot: Kittu (Sundeep) is a simpleton who works as a cab driver under garage owner Manikyam (Tanikella Bharani). Kittu is ambitious and work-oriented. He wants to own a garage of his own and works in favour of it. He saves his hard-earned money with Manikyam and as expected, he gets cheated by his boss. In an effort to bring back his money, Kittu abducts Manikyam's daughter Nandiswari (Regina Cassandra). While Nandu falls for Kittu, Kittu too has feelings for her but keeps it under wrap. In between, Kittu has an interesting past and that's what make him to hate "kidnapping". How does Kittu convince his family and gets love of Nandu is what the film is all about.
Performances: Sundeep Kishan made an impressing performance as a simple, responsible chap Kittu and scored brownie points. Regina Cassandra's flawless performance is what stands out separate in the film. She showcased emotions perfectly striking the chords. Regina's performance is so close to Genelia such that one would mistake Regina as Genelia's clone.Jagapathi Babu is seen as Jaggu Bhai. His tough-guy kinda looks add to his role.
Regina's flawless performance
Rip off of Tere Naal Love Ho Gaya
Ravi Babu's episodes
Analysis: Remaking a film or borrowing scripts from other languages is no longer a trend in T-town. It's been there from ages. But here comes a new trend- 'free'making - to steal a script/story of an other language film, which was penned by writers after days of brainstorming and breaking of heads, and claim it as an "inspiratioin". Not long ago, director Nandini Reddy copied Band Baaja Baraat and made Jabardasth in Telugu. Now Ra Ra Krishnayya too falls under same category as it is a 'free'make of Tere Naal Love Ho Ga. Blame the debutante writer-director Mahesh for doing it publicly.
The performances of all the actors in the film are good and that's what make one engage. However, poor direction is what mars the film. Of course, Mahesh compensates it with fair and witty dialogues. Music by Achu is passable. Sreeram has cranked his camera well. His cinematography brings eye candy visuals. Editing could have been much better. There are many lags in the screenplay.
Tagubothu Ramesh is back with his trademark comedy and does a routine job. Showing Ravi Babu as a fool, inefficient hasn't worked well. While the first half of the film moves at snail pace, interval bang is what raises curiosity. Sooner, you'll get to know that the film is not going anywhere. As the movie progressing towards the end, one could easily predict the pre-climax and climax. On whole, Ra Ra Krishnayya is okay of sorts. If you haven't watched the original Tere Naal Love Ho Gaya, you could give it a try.
Bottom line: Predictable Krishnayya
