Movie Review - Aravinda Sametha Veera Raghava...

Movie: Aravinda Sametha Veera Raghava (Telugu)
Directed: Trivikram Srinivas
Produced: S Radha Krishna
Story: Trivikram Srinivas
Music: SS Thaman
Cast: Jr.NTR/Pooja Hegde/Eesha Rebba/Jagapathi Babu/Nagendra Babu/Sunil/Naveen Chandra/Supriya Pathak/Subhalekha Sudhakar/Rao Ramesh/Naresh/Eshwari Rao/Devayani/Sitara

          Aravinda Sametha Veera Raghava (Avi & VeeRa) - The movie title is far distant from the story and genre it depicts; and uncannily long that even the title character is often called with short name. Admittedly, this movie director is an above par script and dialog writer but seemingly below average in screenplay and direction. Irrelevant characters just got dumped in the story, that lacks pace and grace; with lead actor's image/presence as a saving face. So much has been focused on fights and lights that the actual objective has faded in those, leaving audience in plights. Hero has concentrated on six-pack and Heroine on her size-zero, alright; but the emotion between them does not gel right, with always a space/gap in between. Story was well thought, but execution fell flat. Silly scenes used to connect characters and even the songs are not soothing. Hero's image has been projected as of a 'Hulk', but the overall outcome just makes us sulk. Violence is not an option, agreed; but so are nonsense and greed. Not half/ara but fully false picture of a creed.

Movie Review - Deva-Das...

Movie: Deva-Das (Telugu)
Directed: Sriram Aditya
Produced: Ashwini Dutt Chalasani
Story: Sriram Aditya
Music: Mani Sharma
Cast: Nagarjuna Akkineni/Nani/Rashmika Mandanna/Aakanksha Singh/Kunal Kapoor/Naveen Chandra/Murali Sharma/Naresh/Satya Krishnan

          Deva-Das - A family entertainer with homely taking about a timely friendship between a Don/Deva and a Doctor/Das; a mix of mass and class. Most of the movie revolves around these two characters with comedy, sentiment, commotion and commitment. And a bit of added romantic tracks for each with few nice song-tracks. Rest of all artists, irrespective of roles, have only cameo appearances. The effort is good in explaining the duty of doctors and motto of hospitals, though the current reality is pretty distant. Nevertheless, this movie deals with it superficially and also the values of trust, friendship and family. This multi-starrer definitely struck right chords with respect to balancing the images of both leads, though it lacks the intense screenplay beads. A different drunkard flick with a nerd as sidekick. Nice timepass pick.
