Manjula Ghattamaneni’s debut is a big time bore and snooze fest even though everyone does act seriously in their parts. The problem is as an audience we can’t watch the proceedings with a straight face.
Neither in the first half nor the second, there is any moment that connects emotionally or surprises at the narrative level. It is the failure on both levels that makes the whole exercise dull and uninteresting. The never-ending climax with the writing on the wall at the beginning itself forces the audience to make a quick exit.
The actors (three main leads) and music director do their best, and that’s about the only positive thing that can be said about the movie. The cinematography is good in parts, and the editing is neat. The story and screenplay are the prominent culprits here as they appear too dated for current times.
The last word: A boring film with no high from the word go.
