Movie Review: Ee Nagaraniki Emaindi

RATING: 2.5/5

OVERVIEW: Vivek, Karthik, Kaushik and Upendra are childhood friends. An aspirant director, Vivek plans to make short films with the help of other three as technicians. Meanwhile Vivek addicts to alcohol after breakup with his lover. Gradually each one of the four friends takes different career path until the day they re-unite. Back to their elements, the gang kicks off liquor parties and one ill-fated night all of them end up in GOA. Rest of the story is how they enjoy life in GOA, what kind of life decisions they take etc.

REVIEW: Sushanth Reddy and Vishwaksen Naidu tried their best to attract with their performances. Sushanth attracted with his looks for sometime but later sported black glasses most of the time. So one couldn’t get to see his expressions most of the time. Vishwaksen Naidu is OK with his performance. . Abhinav Gautam managed to create few laughs with his antics. Venkatesh Kakumanu played the support role. Evoked few laughs with their mannerisms.

Simran Chowdhary and Anisha Ambrose got limited roles. Both just passed through the motions in the film. Anisha to some extent attracted with her glamour. Though everyone tried their best to attract movie lovers, they still have a long way to go and for that they should improve upon their expressions.

The camerawork is absolutely stunning as the film looks quite posh in every aspect. Special mention to the dialogues as they have been written with a lot of wits and leave the audience in splits in many areas. Music and background score by Vivek Sagar is impressive and takes the story forward nicely. Production design, costumes and the entire production values by Suresh Productions are top notch.

Coming to the director Tharun Bhascker, he created a new wave romantic comedy with Pelli Choopulu and with this film he brings the buddy comedy genre to Tollywood. He keeps things simple and focuses on the fun and emotion part between the group of friends which is common in the youth. The way he has written the subplots for friends and generated good comedy throughout was impressive. Though his Pelli Choopulu magic was missing in the love track in this film, his overall narration was good and will surely go well with the youth.

Final verdict of the film is Youth will love Ee Nagaraniki Emaindi because of excellent writing. Overall, the movie may not appeal to all section of audience.
