Sarileru Neekevvaru Review

Telugu360 Rating : 3/5

Story:

Major Ajay Krishna (Mahesh Babu) is a highly regarded as an efficient crisis manager in the Indian Army. Bharathi (Vijaya Shanti) is a Kurnool medical college professor, her son works in army with Ajay. When Bharathi’s son dies in an army operation, as a morale duty, Ajay Krishna goes to Kurnool to support his colleague’s family. State minister Nagendra (Prakash Raj) develops grudge against Bharathi and attempts to kill her family. At the same time Ajay arrives at Kurnool and rest of the movie is a confrontation between Ajay and Nagendra.

Analysis:

Sarileru Neekevvaru is a commercial entertainer which sticks to the box-office fundamentals. Young director Anil Ravipudi, in this 160 minutes film, never pretends to looking for the critical acclaim as such. Right from the word go, he plays it to the galleries as he tries to entertain the audience in one or other way. His emphasis revolves around bringing out Mahesh Babu’s under-utilized skills dance and dialogue delivery. He succeeded for most part at his attempts despite a thin story line.

First half starts off with establishing Vijayasanthi’s story, followed by Mahesh Babu’s entry as Army major. Kashmir episodes are neatly done in original locations, the kids rescue episode came out well. After 25 minutes, story moves to Kurnool but not before another 20 minutes of train episode. The much hyped train episode doesn’t stand up to the hype and it is average. However, Mahesh Babu excelled with his comedy timing in this train episode. Pre-interval and Interval blocks at Kurnool are a feast for masses and fans.

There are plenty of heroism elevation dialogues that will be a hit with the masses. First half ends on good note. In the second half, the first thirty minutes are again very appealing for one and all. The scenes where Mahesh Babu imitates Jaya Prakash, interaction scenes between Mahesh – Prakash Raj are good.

After 30 minutes into second half, movie story goes into unnecessary sub plots. Nallamala forest episode, Crime Branch Koti ( Subbaraju – Vennela Kishore ) thread etc… are just fillers which made the second half a bit lengthy. Movie graph goes down as it approaches the pre–climax. Then comes the penultimate song of the film ‘Mind Block‘– a superb dance number which rejuvenates the mood of the audience. With an unconventional, lighter vein climax the lengthy second half ends.

Songs :

Daang Daang – The party song between Mahesh , Thamanna is Very good. The dance moves are energetic.
He is so cute – The train journey break song is just okay.

Suryudivo Chandrudivo – A pleasant family song.

Mind Block – The Best song of the film and outstanding. Mahesh’s mass dancing skills are a huge surprise.

Sarileru Theme – Audio wise this is best work of DSP in this film, in movie this is a montage song.

Performances: Mahesh Babu, who has been playing soft roles in the last four films, unleashed his other side in this film. Vijayasanthi lives up to her super star status, Rashmika got a pretty ordinary role. Prakash Raj and Ajay played villainy adequately.

Technicians: Devi Sri Prasad stands as a backbone for heroism scenes with his fantastic background score. He also delivered three good songs. R. Rathanavelu’s cinematography is superb. At Kurnool fort set his shot making skills elevated the mood. His skill won’t go unnoticed in the Kashmir scenes as well. Ram Laxman stunts are good as well.

Positives:

  • Mahesh Babu is simply outstanding, he visibly enjoyed his role
  • Out and out commercial direction by Anil Ravipudi
  • Superstar VijayaSanthi ‘s role
  • Songs
  • Interval Block
  • 30 Minutes after the Interval

Negatives:

  • Train episode could have been better
  • Mid portions of the second half are just fillers, adds to length
  • Thin story line

Verdict:

Sarileru Neekevvaru is an engaging commercial entertainer, and Mahesh Babu excelled in it. Director Anil Ravipudi presented Mahesh Babu in a never before mass avatar which will make fans go berserk for sure. First half is good, half way through the second half this movie loses its steam a bit , but the last song and easy climax bring the proceedings back on track. It is a family friendly movie with no vulgarity or violence – just entertainment.

Anil Ravipudi’s desperate video falls flat

1

In an attempt to bring heft to their promotions, director Anil Ravipudi came up with the idea of releasing an impromptu video featuring comedian Vennela Kishore and actor Subbaraju. The video got released on Deepavali festival on social media but it didn’t entice anyone.

It looked more like a desperate attempt to match the promotional blitz of Trivikram and Allu Arjun’s ‘Ala Vaikunthapuramlo’. Except Vijayashanti’s stunning first look posters, all other promotional output that team ‘Sarileru Neekevvaru’ had released is a no match at all.

The combination of superstar Mahesh Babu and successful director Anil Ravipudi has already generated good expectations. It is carrying high hopes. So, the team should not spoil it by hasty promotional output.

‘Sarileru Neekevvaru’ is under progress in Hyderabad.

Bandla’s case a new headache for Anil Ravipudi

0

Bandla Ganesh has been sent to jail in a cheque bounce case for 14 days. This is a surprising twist that the makers of ‘Sarileru Neekevvaru’ were not expecting at all. Director Anil Ravipudi particularly was banking heavily on Bandla’s comedy in the film. He has written a special character for Bandla based on the actor turned producer’s controversial nature.

But the judicial remand of the actor is not good publicity for the movie.

Anil Ravipudi will not bring Bandla Ganesh’s name now during the promotions. The team was also planning to reveal Bandla as a trump card in their entertainment gang. With his arrest, they have changed the plans.

‘Sarileru Neekevvaru’ has Mahesh Babu as a hero and Bandla Ganesh appears in two crucial comedy episodes in the movie. He has a pivotal role in the film.

The ace director worked with Dil Raju for three films and he is currently directing Superstar Mahesh Babu in Sarileru Neekevvaru. Dil Raju who shares a close bonding with Anil Ravipudi is in plans to sign one more big-budget film with the talented director soon. Though the duo announced F3 in their combo, the project may not happen anytime soon as Anil has commitments with Shine Screens and Niharika Entertainments.

These production houses already paid advances and locked Anil Ravipudi for their next projects. With no big-ticket films in hand, Dil Raju is keen on retaining Anil Ravipudi for his next project. Though Raju is co-producing Sarileru Neekevvaru, he is keen on producing a solo big-budget film next year. Mahesh will take a call on Vamshi Paidipally’s film next year and Allu Arjun kept Icon on hold. Hence, Dil Raju is only left with Anil and he is desperate of locking him for his next. Only time can say if Anil gives his nod or goes ahead with his promised commitments.
