ABCD Review : Fails to entertain !

ABCD Movie Review

Telugu360 Rating 2.5/5

Story:

Aravind alias Avi( AlluSirish) is a son of a millionaire NRI ( Nagababu) who migrated to USA 25 years ago. Being a rich kid, Avi spends up to $20K per month which scares his dad. Nagababu sends his son to India to make him understand the value of money, value of hard work. After Avi reaches India, all his credit cards are disabled so that he doesn’t get easy money, also all his USA contacts have been alerted not to send money to him.

Rest of the film is about how Avi and his friend survive the slum life in India. It also deals with how the duo become media celebrities and earn own reputation.

Analysis:

Movie takes off interestingly but fails to build further on the premise. The concept of American born rich desi kid coming to India , without any funds available to spend , sets up ample scope to generate humor but the team has been only partially successful ..That too in first half. In couple of scenes Allu Sirish ,Bharath ( Master Bharath ) are able to generate humor. Entire political thread involving finance minister Subhalekha Sudhakar, his son Raja is a damp squib. Feel good image artist Srinivennla Raja’s selection for a villain role is a miscast, that impacted entire second half. Hero heroine friendship or love track is poorly written.

Vennela Kishore’s ‘ Koffee with Kishore ‘ news reader character has been written around the popular youtube video ‘ Frustrated News reader ‘ and it is hilarious.

Allu Sirish has acted well, in climax scene his speech is impressive. Bharath as hero’s friend is fine as well. Heroine Rukshar Dhillon has limited role, acted okay. Nagababu is adequate as hero’s father. Production values should have been much better. Given the hero’s market, it appears there is a compromise in spending. Director Sanjeev shows some ability to narrate the proceedings interestingly but budget, casting etc. factors restricted the output.

Positives:

  • Hero Allu Sirish shows ease in action

Negatives:

  • Poor Casting, production values
  • Less entertainment
  • Lack of commercial elements

Verdict:

ABCD has a story that is not a run-of-the-mill one. There is little entertainment in first half, which could have been better though. Second half is more story oriented one with no enjoyable moments. Overall, in B C centers this film may find some audience and elsewhere it will be an uphill task to bring audience to the theater with this content.

Will Allu Sirish’s ABCD better ‘Okka Kshanam’ run in overseas

0

Allu Sirish has pinned all hopes on his Summer release ABCD( American Born Confused Desi) which is the official remake of Malayalam film with the same name. Debutant Sanjeev Reddy is its director and Sirish reprised Dulqueer Salman’s role. He will be seen as an NRI who gets into an intricate lifestyle after landing in India.

The teasers and trailers of ABCD received a good response from the audience and set some encouraging buzz on the film. Allu Sirish’s previous film Okka Kshanam performed decently at the overseas box office as it collected more than quarter million ( $ 285K) in its full run. So, it remains to be seen if ABCD strikes a chord with an overseas audience and performs better than Okka Kshanam or not.

As Maharshi didn’t excite audience there and is having a full second weekend in overseas, ABCD has definitely got a good chance to notch up decent numbers if it manages to garner hit talk from premiers.
