Tungabhadra Movie Review
Plot dealt in 'Tunga-Bhadra' - 'When 2 Two Rivers can meet, why can't all the sections of people live in harmony'. Sreenu (Adith) falls in love with College Student Gowri (Dimple Chopde) who is the Daughter of local goon Ramaraju (Satyaraj) for whom he has been a loyal sidekick. Will Ramaraju accept their love? What all the consequences they face forms the rest of the story.
Adith is neither a typical hero material nor possess exceptional acting calibre to shine in a film with weak script. Dimple Chopde looks good in traditional attires, conveys a lot through her eyes and emotes well during key scenes.
Satyaraj gives a matured performance. Kota does a fine job. Saptagiri, Jabardasth Srinu. Dhanraj, Siva Rama Krishna and Others are adequate.
- Dimple Chopde
- Satyaraj's Performance
- Predictable Plot
- Cliched Scenes
Debutante Director Srinivas Gogineni missed out on a great opportunity to carve a niche for himself inspite of backing from a leading Production House. More focus on Screenplay and Entertainment Quotient could have done wonders for this intense political drama.
Hari Gaura's music is decent enough. Cinematography is top notch. Dialogues work in parts. Editing coud have been better. Production Values are fine.
'Tungabhadra' is certainly the weakest film made on Varahi Banner till date. Even at 125 minutes, This film tests the patience of the audience just because of its poor screenplay and routine scenes. Sai Korrapati need to introspect and try to come up with much better projects.
Box Office: 'Tungabhadra' got a massive release of 450 scenes. Screen Count hardly matters when the Script is so weak and this rustic village drama is certain to bite the dust.
Verdict: Not Worth Your Time & Money!
