Entha Manchivaadavuraa Movie Review:
Nandamuri Kalyan Ram
and Mehrene Kaur Pirzada
played the lead roles in the film Entha Manchivaadavuraa. Satish Vegesna who won a National award for the film Shatamanam Bhavati directed the film. Kalyan Ram who failed to impress the audiences with the movies Naa Nuvve, MLA and 118 pinned many hopes on this new movie that released today. Director Satish who failed with his last film Srinivasa Kalyanam wanted to score a hit at any cost. Both the actor and director teamed up for the first time. As Sankranthi special, the film released today in the theatres, amidst huge buzz and hype. Read on to know the film's review.
The film lacks a story because of which the makers could not cut the trailer properly. The actor's previous movies and the director's previous movies came up with good trailers but surprisingly, the current movie did not have a proper trailer cut. Coming to the story of the movie, Kalyan Ram plays Balu, an orphan who craves to develop relations and erase loneliness in his life. Apparently, he starts an organization called 'All is Well' and spreads emotions to those in need. Thus, he takes part in a lot of relationships. In the process, he becomes a part of several families and encounters a conflict that changes his path of life. How does he overcome leads to the climax, with a happy ending?
The film tries to reflect the real-life issues with a cinematic touch. Director Satish Vegesna wants to tell the tale of emotions in a subtle and entertaining way but the problem started there. There is no story in the film and the director wanted to give an emotional treatment to it and it actually ended in a disappointing way. The director wanted to establish an emotion between those who do not have any relation or connection. The director inclines towards a preaching method and it did not work for this setup and background. The film has got some good emotional episodes but they could not help the film from becoming a hit.
The first half has nothing fresh to offer the audiences and the screenplay of the second half is very slow. The chemistry between the hero and heroine also failed to attract. The lead pair could not convince the audiences. There are a lot of commercial elements in the film which come as unwanted barriers in the movie. The drama also went overdose in the movie. The director could not present the content in the way he put the same on the paper. The climax is also a huge letdown.
Performances wise, all the actors have given their best. Kalyan Ram changed his strategy in selecting the scripts and his acting underwent a transformation for this movie. As a family film hero, Kalyan Ram looked good. He has got a lot of variations including the comedy in his performance. Mehreen Kaur is also good in terms of performance and her looks are decent. Rajeev Kanakala played a role that has got negative shades. He is good as per his character limitations. The other actors Tanikella Bharani, Suhasini, Sarath Babu, Naresh, Vijay Kumar, and others are good too. Vennela Kishore, Sudarshan and others made their presence felt.
Technically, the film is good and there are not many complaints. Although the camera work is decent, hero Kalyan Ram looked weird in some scenes. The music and background score by Gopi Sunder is unimpressive. At times, it is loud and at times, it gets repetitive. The editing is also good. The production values of the movie are grand.
Entha Manchivaadavuraa is a script that looks good on the paper but when it got on to the screen, it is just life-less. The director's intention is pure and good but the way he executed it did not impress the audiences. The drama looks convincing and attractive when it is laced with proper logic in the right situations and it lacked here. On the whole, the film is a boring drama that hardly makes an impression with the audiences.
