After scoring a comeback blockbuster this sankranthi with f2 Fun and Frustration victory venkatesh has joined hands with real Alludu naga chaitanya who gave a comeback with majili for venky Mama, directed by KS ravindra aka Bobby. Here's team ap Herald's exclusive first on net venky Mama review.
Karthik (Naga Chaitanya) and venky
(Venkatesh) share a great bond, as karthik
was raised by venky
after his parents
passed away, and karthik
returns to the village
from the army. He has faced a break up with Harika(Raashi Khanna) and venky
tries to unite them, and on the other hand, karthik
tries to unite venky
Rajput. Situations lead to misunderstandings between karthik
, and what happened finally is what the emotional entertainer is all about.
Venkatesh delivers a composed act as he gives a performance that's a mix of loud humor as well as controlled emotions and excels while naga chaitanya
is seen giving an underplay except for action episodes. The two beauties raashi khanna
and payal rajput
sizzle and ooze oomph on-screen offering a glam feast for fans. The rest of the cast including prakash raj
, Nasser, Sampath, Posani, Rao Ramesh, Brahmaji, Geetha, Vidyullekha are adequate.
Background score by ss thaman
is loud and massy at times and of his songs, Coca-cola Pepsi and Yennellako are hum worthy. Cinematography by prasad
Murella is impressive while editing by Prawin Pudi could have been better.
After back to back failures of Sardar gabbar singh
Lava Kusa, this time around director
aka Bobby has joined hands with real-life mama - Alludu venkatesh
and naga chaitanya
Mama. The movie
starts on an interesting note but once the army
portions are over, it's the very usual tollywood
mass masala template beaten to death and ravindra
fails to execute it well with a gripping screenplay. While venkatesh
and Chay try hard to keep the audience
engaged with their performances, Ravindra's screenplay wanders aimlessly between unnecessary action sequences, glam fest songs, artificial romantic
sequences, ultimately making venky
Mama a colossal disastrous outing, once again spoiling the comeback of venky
and chay. All said, despite venky
and Chay's efforts venky
Mama could not be saved.
Another weak outing for venky
and chay after comebacks.
