Thoughts Before Release!
Allari Naresh is going to impress us with a hilarious comedy entertainer. After a gap, Naresh has done something interesting and he is back to his own strength comedy! Though the trailer did not impress, we hoped for a good film in the end.
Selfie Raja Movie Review:
Selfie Raja, the title itself reveals some story about the film. Allari Naresh, who is a selfie freak gets into troubles because of the selfies he take. He, struggles hard to overcome the difficulties that these selfies land him in. This is what we predict from the film’s trailer. But what was shown in the film is completely different. The director has cooked some outdated story and presented it in a boring way that the film tests the patience to the core. Selfie Raja has a few fun moments and putting all of them together, the film is good for only fifteen minutes.
Selfie Raja is the story of Raja (Allari Naresh) who is a selfie freak. His two weaknesses are taking selfies and having no control over what he speaks. This lands him struggles everywhere. He works as a Manager for a Marriage bureau. One fine day, he comes across a girl Divya and finally enters the wedlock with her. On their first night, Divya comes to know that Raja is a womeniser and he has connection with some other girl and leaves him. Raja tries to convince Divya who in turn neglects him. Finally, Raja decides to commit suicide but fails. He makes a deal with a serial killer to kill him and approaches Kaki (Ravi Babu). Kaki handles the deal to Beems (Allari Naresh). The rest of the story is the confusion drama that was created with Beems attempting to murder Raja. At the same time, other gangs also chases Raja to kill him.
The story itself looks bit boring if we narrate it to some one. Nothing was exciting or interesting in the entire plot line. The actor in his interviews during the film promotions revealed that there are no spoofs in the film but in fact, we can find a half dozen of spoofs in the film. They are funny in parts but completely misses out the main point. The director has brought in a loosely written, half-witty and poorly baked script for directing. He neither engages the audiences through the film nor entertains with some comedy elements. There are a lot of comic actors in the film but none really entertained with a healthy comedy. Over dose of spoofs and unimpressive scenes and speed breaking songs makes us to feel sad for ourselves for sitting through out the film.
There will be no connection between one scene and the other one. Sometimes, you dont understand why the director had to bring particular actor on screen or particular sequence in the screenplay because it completely goes reverse with the flow and was useless. Allari Naresh must concentrate on the story selection. The way he has been selecting scripts will surely put him in a dead end in the coming days. He has the potential of making films having healthy comedy but he is missing the track these days. The film has nothing new or nothing really entertaining with so many good actors on the screen. The performances of the film are just okay. Allari Naresh tried his best in the dual roles but he has no scope to make wonders with his performance. The female leads are only for songs and a couple of scenes. Krishna Bhagavan, Prudhvi are the only saviours. Except for the Pelli Choopulu scene and the climax episodes, the film is not worth of your ticket price.
The cinematography of the film is good. The songs were picturized nicely but they appear as the speed breakers. The editing is bad. The film could have been chopped off easily by fifteen minutes. The music by Sai Karthik is unimpressive. The background score of the film also fails to leave an impression. None of the songs throws an interest to watch! On a whole, Selfie Raja is one such film consisting so many talented actors including the Sudden Star Allari Naresh. Instead of providing the entertainment feast, they arrived together to provide the torture fest!
Selfie Raja Movie Pros:
- Few Good Scenes in Parts
Selfie Raja Movie Cons:
- Except the above mentioned Positives
Selfie Raja Turns The RAJA of Torture
Selfie Raja Movie Rating: 1/5
F2 : Fun and Frustration Telugu Movie Review
F2 : Fun and Frustration Movie Review
Senior Hero Victory Venkatesh and Mega Prince Varun Tej teamed up for a multi starrer movie ‘F2: Fun and Frustration’. Touted to be a full-length comedy entertainer, hattrick director Anil Ravipudi helmed this project. Tamannaah Bhatia and Mehreen Pirzada played the female leads in the movie bankrolled by Sri Venkateswara Creations banner. The teaser and trailer of the movie have already hinted that the movie is going to be a hilarious ride for the audience and the expectations have been high on this movie. After all the big releases for Sankranthi, the movie is slated to hit the screens today on January 12th, 2019. Let’s check out the review of the movie.
Venky (Venkatesh) who works as a PA to an MLA gets married with Harika (Tamannah). His life becomes frustrating after few months because of over expectations and possessiveness. Varun Yadav (Varun Tej) and Honey (Mehreen), who is the sister of Harika loves each other. Venky tries his best to preach Varun about the after consequences of marriage but Varun keeps a deaf ear on him. Finally he gets engaged with Honey and very soon realises the problems. What did Venky and Varun did to get rid of their woman ? Who won in this ego war of couples ? is the rest of the story.
Victory Venkatesh is undoubtedly the show stealer for this film. His lively performance added more beauty to the film. He has portrayed his character with more energy and will tickle the laugh bones. Varun Tej tried a character like this for the first time. He has delivered a decent job. Varun Tej will grab the attention with his slang. The female leads Tamannaah and Mehreen not only added up the glamour quotient to the film but also showcased their acting prowess as well. Prakash Raj delivered a decent performance. Rajendra Prasad is classy and shows why he is such a highly respected actor. Vennela Kishore and Priyadarshi excel in funny episodes. Jhansi and Brahmaji are alright. Raghubabu is decent.
More than the story of the film, director Anil Ravipudi always focuses on the entertainment and he repeated his same formula in this movie as well. Though some of the comedy scenes will definitely make the audience laugh, most of the comedy scenes try to bring out comedy forcibly. Production values by Sri Venkateswara Creations banner are lavish. The producers have invested a huge amount. The music by Devi Sri Prasad is good. Though there are no haunting songs in the film, BGM is just average. Cinematography by Sameer Reddy is beautiful. He has produced some bright and colorful visuals. Editing by Bikkina Thammiraju are clean and neat. Overall, the technical team did a good job.
Verdict : F2 is a complete Fun ride from the director Anil Ravipudi. You can witness vintage Venkatesh and his comedy timing. This is a sure shot hit and winner of this Pongal season.
