Varun, who is a non-believer of destiny, throws a crazy challenge to her to disprove the existence of destiny.

Rest of the film is abouthow the challenge between Varun, Meera ends as? What are the consequences of the challenge? etc

Performances:

Kalyan Ram who is known for Mass, family-oriented roles have tried a makeover as a loverboy Varun in this film. While looks and performance wise he is adequate, in those scenes where it needs to act intimacy with the heroine, he appeared uncomfortable.

Tamannah Bhatia acted decently, her generous glamorous show may appeal her fans. Tanikella Bharani, Posani got small roles. There are many comedians Vennela Kishore, Bithiri Satthi, Praveen and Sudhakar, they’re under utilized

Analysis:

A love story-based film, to be successful, requires minimum of 3-4 scenes in which the audiencecould connect to the lead pair/ feel their love or chemistry. If that successful story is topped with melodious songs, potentially becomes superhit. ‘Naa Nuvve’ which has been stuffed with some cool songs, fail to impress with its story and direction. The artificial incidents in the name of ‘destiny‘couldn’t build the much-required chemistry between the lead pair of a ‘love story ‘. After a slow start, movie picks up a bit towards the interval. However, the second half is a series of cinematic liberty events. Varun’s characterization is unexplainable. Why would any US visa (H1B) holder misses the international flight three times back to back and yet happily roams on the roads? Also, RJ Meera camping in a train station for 36 hours, self imposing a dead line to meet her lover sounds inconvincing. Especially, a scene in which Varun finds Meera in an elevator is laughable emotion. Posani character is not over the top this time, generates little bit fun in climax. The comedy by traffic constable (Bitthiri Sathi) is a damp squib, other comedians praveen, vennela kishore are wasted as well. Well known PRO, presenter of this film, Mahesh S Koneru played a cameo as a railway T.C. NTR.Jr references may appeal his fans. Sharreth music is impressive. Overall, the second half gets bored with pointless, slow moving story.

P.C. Sreeram cinematography is noticeable only in few colorful songs.The songs ‘Nijama Manasa ‘, ‘Chiniki Chiniki ‘ , ‘Premika’ are decent. Production values by Cool Breeze Cinemas (Producers Vijay Vattikooti, Kiran Muppavarapu) are good, succeed in bringing in rich look to the film. Graphics in the songs are of poor quality though

Positives:

  1. Three melodious songs, their colourful visuals
  2. Tamannah Glamour
  3. Contemporary styling to the film

Negatives:

  1. Poor Script
  2. Lack of chemistry between lead pair
  3. Un-Exiting, Slow narration direction
  4. Comedy thread failed to generate any laugh

Verdict:

‘Naa Nuvve ‘is a soulless film stuffed with few melodious songs. Though it is a short 2-hour duration film, poor and unexciting direction by Jayendra makes it a non-satisfactory watch. Glamorous Tamannah is a plus point and she acted well. Nandamuri Kalyanram looks Okay in his makeover role. Fans of Tamannah, Kalyanram may give it a try to this otherwise boring film.
