The redeeming character
29 July 2017 | by almoalgamSee all my reviews


Yes, I watch Telugu films too

Let's start with the bad stuff first. Cinematography was not good. There were some shots that were actually out of focus, some that had obstacles blocking the actors and some which were just not framed well. Same goes for the editing, it was not good. They wasted so much time on Trivial things. There was one particular shot in a hospital which was four minutes long when it only needed to be thirty seconds. And one important scene which needed to be longer but was cut much too early without the information being registered completely. The hero and the sister of the heroine were baaaaad. It was strained and it was showing. Lastly, the ending was rushed and all the time that they probably should've saved in the movie should've been used for it instead. It was just very abrupt. More of a conclusion would've been great.

Now for the good things. The story he told was told pretty well. The pacing was great, save for the ending. The direction was good enough and the screenplay was pretty good too. The story had no gaping plot holes and the characters were well written. Speaking of which, the heroine is definitely the highlight of the entire film. She was effortless in her acting and a natural. She was so lively and her screen presence was better than probably almost all of the heroines working here right now. She brought the character to life and did it without a single setback. I had no problem in believing anything she said. She was wonderful. I would really love to see more of her. Special mention to her father in the movie who also gave a pretty good performance.

So, a pretty good Telugu film with a pretty good story and one redeeming character/actor for whom you can actually watch the entire film.
