After AWE and Kalki, director Prashanth Varma is back with an exciting film Zombie Reddy. Child artist Teja Sajja turned into a full-length hero with this film. The film is the first movie to be made in the Zombie genre and there is a huge positive buzz around the movie. Check out the film's review here.
Mario (Teja Sajja) is a game designer. Along with his friend, he designs a game. One day, Mario finds an error in coding. To fix it, he goes to meet his friend who is getting married in Kurnool. Unexpectedly, on his way, Mario's friend meets a Zombie and it leads to a series of dramatic events. Everyone becomes a zombie except Mario. How did Mario save his friends? What did he do to transform them into humans? What happens in the end? forms the film's plot.
Teja Sajja is a decent performer and we have already seen him in short films and Oh Baby. He did a good job in Zombie Reddy. He has a bright future in the film industry and all he has to do is to pick the right script. Anandhi played a good role in the film. It's been a long time that we saw her in a Telugu film. She also did action scenes in the movie. The other actors who played negative shade characters are good in their limitations. Harshavardhan, Hari Teja, and other noted actors made their presence felt.
The Zombie genre is not new to the movie audiences who watch International cinema but at a regional level, it is a new and fresh concept for the viewers. Prashanth Varma saw scope to tell his story there and came up with this interesting film. Adding comedy elements to a Zombie thriller is something new and Zombie Reddy is one such film. The screenplay is engaging. Not just the comedy elements, but there are other interesting elements in the film. The taking is impressive. The horror scenes will thrill the audience. A few comedy scenes appear routine and boring.
Overall, Zombie Reddy is a good time-pass flick that is packaged with multiple elements that go well with a commercial film.
