Anjali is very much fond of her over possessive father Viswanath.
Viswanath, a millionaire, loves Anjali a lot. What happens
when his darling daughter falls in love with a middle class
boy Rishi, is the basic plot of the storyline.
Tarun played the role of a guy who sounds casual but has a
lot of depth in thinking when it matters the most. Tarun did
extremely well to live it up to the character of Rishi. His
performance gets highlighted in the scenes where he confronts
Prakash Raj and consoles Shriya.
Shriya is at her best in this film. She is very sensual and
she expressed the feelings wonderfully with her beautiful
eyes. She is sensuality personified. She did the role of a
girl who is crushed between the love of an obsessive father
and the feelings towards a close-to-heart boyfriend. Her wardrobe
in this film includes dresses ranging from traditional sarees
to mini skirts.
Raj: Prakash Raj gave one of his best performances in
the recent times. He gave a very controlled performance in
this film. Though the film required him to be an over obsessive
father - a role which he has been playing for years - he made
sure that the histrionics he has shown for this film do not
remind us any of his earlier roles.
roles: Sunil did his role of 'Pandu' with great élan
and entertained the audiences, though his role does not have
any significance in this film. Chandra Mohan did his usual
middleclass father role. Swapna Madhuri sounds promising in
her small role.
Story of this film is loosely based on Hollywood flick 'Father
of the bride'. Trivikram Srinivas is known for picking up
the stories where heroine is forced to get married to a guy
of her parent's choice and finally lands up in the lap of
the hero. And this story is no different either.
- direction: For a first timer, Trivikram did a fantastic
job as a director and screenplay writer. He weaved the story
beautifully between three important characters of Rishi, Anjali
and Viswanath. He has a thorough understanding of how women
think and behave. Hence he injected the same enigmatic spirit,
under-current vulnerability and break-the-shackles-if-necessary
attitude to the character of Anjali. He started the film by
showing Rishi as a carefree guy with an attitude and started
exploring the depth of Rishi's thinking as the movie progresses.
The best character of the film however is Viswanath. Though
he sounds like a villain, the character is molded in such
a way that he has his own sensible reasoning behind every
act he does.
Trivikram seems to have reserved his best dialogues for his
directorial debut. There are very good one-liners and comedy
dialogues in the first half and thought-provoking and heart-touching
dialogues in the second half. The film is studded with so
many good dialogues that its very difficult to remember them.
Here are a few of them I could manage to remember...
to Prakash Raj in the second half: "Nijam prema
kante bala mainadi. Naa prema nijamaithe Anjalitho naa pelli
Mohan to Tarun - "Sampadinchalenivaadiki Kharchupette
arhata ledu. Alaage prema express cheyaleni vaadiki preminche
to Prakash Raj - "Tajmahal, charminar, naa lanti
kurrollu choodataaniki kaani - konataaniki kaadu."
to Shriya - "Dabbuto bread konochu kaani aakali
konaleru. Bed konochu kaani nidrani konaleru"
Raj to a marriage broker - "Devudini ammani choodataaniki
manamu vellaali kaani, manakosam vallanu teppinchukokoodadu"
(about NRI sons who send tickets and arrange visas for their
parents to visit them)
Raj to Chandra Mohan - "Evarainaa Edigina tarvata
pelli chesukuntaaru. Kaani nee koduku edagataaniki pelli
Sravanthi Ravi Kishore is one producer who can get best out
of Koti. The melody songs (Naa
Nuvve Kavalantundi) uplift the spirit of the film. The
background music is also apt and satisfies the requirement
of situation. Generally a producer does not spend more than
8 lakhs (as the theater rent) to score background music for
any film. But Sravanthi Ravi Kishore spent 20 lakhs for background
music of the film. The wonderful background score that used
for that particular scene - in which Shriya sleeps off on
the shoulders of her father while Pooja is being performed
- reminds us of mellifluous music of Vijayavari albums of
Photography is pretty good and it's natural. Hari Anumolu
made sure that no excessive lighting is used for authenticity.
The night-effect scenes are pretty good.
departments: Editing by Srikar Prasad is crisp. Suchitra
Chandra Bose and Shankar have composed trendy slow steps for
the duets and themes for the teasing songs.
Sravanthi Ravi Kishore has to be commended for making a film
that makes your heart feel contended after watching it. he
makes sure that his heroine has the qualities of perfect woman
when it comes to the characterization.
First half of the film is fun and has youth-orientation. But
it's the second half that holds the life for 'Nuvve Nuvve'.
Masses would enjoy the first half and class people would love
the second half. The only weak point of the film is the narration,
which is pretty slow. The story only starts after an hour
after movie is started. This movie is mainly aimed at matured
people and family audiences. Hence it might disappoint the
teenyboppers who look for elopement episodes and blatant teasing
scenes. We have to wait and see how the audience will receive
this slow poison called 'Nuvve Nuvve'
Piece: The film generated a disappointing talk for the
morning show. The real talk would come out only when the family
crowds grace the theaters from Monday onwards. This film would
become a hit for sure. But the hit range would depend on how
the other films released would fare at the box office.
