‘ Happy Birthday ‘ Movie Review : Wacky but fails to impress !

Happy Birthday Movie 2022 Review

Happy Birthday Movie 2022 Review

Story:
‘Happy Birthday’ is a new age fictional comedy genre film and the story in unconventional. Defense minister Rithvik Sodhi (Vennela Kishore) leads the movement to amend the Gun laws in India. As a result, gun culture flourishes across the nation and everyone carries a gun or an assault rifle. Set in Hyderabad, the story revolves around the Ritz Hotel. The hotel house keeper (Naresh Agastya) has been hired to replace a lighter which holds significance in the story. Pasupuleti Happy Tripati (Lavanya Tripathi) enters into the pub, gets kidnapped by the guys searching for the lighter. There are other fun threads parallel to the main actors. There is a Russian element added to the core story. Rest of the film revolves around the vault.

Analysis: 

Director ‘Ritesh Rana’ repeates his debut film ‘Mathu Vadalara’s screenplay format in ‘Happy Birthday’ as well. The story has been narrated from the characters’ point of view, periodically the story takes different dimension as and when a new character / chapter is introduced. Linking back the new character to the main story in this manner, Taking the proceedings further is an uphill task. Ritesh has mastered this unique method. His subtle punches on various aspects are good but appeal to limited urban audience. Chapters are named after the main characters as Happy , Lucky , Max Pain, BABY and Serena William etc. Vennela Kishore interview is funny, satire on the pub management scenes work, the dialogues on pub customers who are pseudo rich came out well. The three sisters video call with their brother is an extension to the Mathu Vadalara film’s satire on TV serials. But this time the satire fails to generate the intended effect, ends up counterproductive.
The second half is a boring affair after the vault concept begins, gets redundant with Lavanya Tripathi ‘s Jail episodes. Few scenes in climax phase generate some comedy but audience will not be in a mood to enjoy by then.

Comedian Satya steals the show, Vennela Kishore ‘s role as a person with transgender characteristics is just okay. Lavanya Tripathi is good fit for the role. Naresh Agastya did perform well.

The art work, set designs are good and match the director’s vision of a quirky film, the music by Kala Bhairava is out of the box to match the theme.

Positives:

-Good production values
-Subtle sarcasm filled dialogues
-Smart screenplay

Negatives:

– Over the top redundant scenes
-Heroine thread is half baked and boring
-Second half lacks any substance

Verdict:

‘Happy Birthday’ is an unconventional film which works partly for a limited set of audience. The director has succeeded in delivering sarcastic humor in an engaging manner in the first half, the screenplay has been smart. But the eccentricity crosses the limit, story goes into boring phase in second half. Overall, a costly futile attempt !

0

The makers of ‘Happy Birthday’, starring Lavanya Tripathi in an atypical role, released the teaser earlier on Tuesday.

While the title ‘Happy Birthday’ sounded gentle, the poster’s theme was quite a contrast. The teaser for the film has been dropped, continuing to astound the audience.

The teaser begins by introducing Vennela Kishore who plays a union minister who proposes the Gun Bill, which is a law that regulates the purchase, sale, manufacture, and use of firearms.

And the Bill has been passed by the Parliament, allowing the country’s gun culture to flourish.

People flock to gun bazaars because they are fascinated by weapons. Meanwhile, a birthday party with a gun theme is held. Without a gun, there is no way to get into the party. When a special team arrives for the party, the two sides engage in a massive firefight.

The fictional world of director Ritesh Rana is a mad rush of sorts, with some crazy happenings in every frame. Characters are also introduced in an unusual way.

Produced by Chiranjeevi (Cherry) and Hemalatha Pedamallu of Clap Entertainment, Naveen Yerneni and Ravi Shankar Yalamanchili of Mythri Movie Makers presents ‘Happy Birthday’ which is slated for its release on July 8th.

Will Lavanya get a break this time?

0

Lavanya Tripathi has lost all the fame and popularity with a series of flops. Her career is in the doldrums. In a last effort to save the career, she is now promoting ‘Arjun Suravaram’ that hits the screens this month end (November 29).

The action-thriller is a hero-driven movie and she may not have much importance in the story. But she may have some chances if the film becomes a success. This is her only hope to revive the career.

Until a year ago, she was one of the leading actresses of Tollywood but she made wrong choices and her acting has become monotonous. Within no time, she lost the race. ‘Arjun Suravaram’ is a crucial film for its hero Nikhil Siddharth and also for Lavanya. Both of them need success now.

About your role in Inttelligent?

I played Sandhya in the film who returns from USA after completing studies and takes care of her dad’s business. Sandhya is quite dominating and angry. The interesting point in the film is how Sandhya falls in love. Inttelligent has a cute love story and will connect with youth.

How was it working with Sai Dharam Tej?

Sai Dharam Tej looks energetic and he is one of the finest dancers. We had enough fun on the sets of Inttelligent. Our chemistry in the film will be widely discussed after the release of film. We enjoyed well while shooting in Muscat.

What is the main theme of Inttelligent?

Inttelligent itself has an intelligent story, a very typical commercial entertainer. Inttelligent is the story of a youngster who fought against the evils for the poor and the society. Sai Dharam Tej plays Dharma Bhai and his character looks powerful.

Did you take any special care for dances in Inttelligent?

For the first time in his career I had to practise for dances. ‘Chamak Chamak’ remix was the toughest one for us as the song had huge expectations. All the other songs will appeal to masses. Dancing with Tej was a great experience for me.

How was it working with Vinayak garu?

VV Vinayak is very humble and sweet person. He is quite down to earth and made us always comfortable on the sets of the film. Vinayak is one director who has utmost clarity about films. I learned a lot of things from during the film’s shoot.

How do you accept hits and flops?

Success and failures in films are quite common. I love to learn from my failures and collect feedback from everyone. I even take compliments and received many for Bhale Bhale Magadivoy and Soggade Chinni Nayana. Inttelligent is one more milestone in my career.

About choosing your roles?

I love to do different films and my character is my first priority. I keep my 100% effort for the film.

How was it working with CK Entertainments?

C Kalyan is one passionate producer who is focussed only on films. He never compromised on the film’s quality and erected massive sets for action episodes along with songs. I would love to work with this production house again if given an opportunity.

About SS Thaman’s music?

I loved the music of Inttelligent completely. The recent pre-release event that took place in Rajamundry was a huge hit and over 50000 people attended the event. I was blessed to attend the event and SS Thaman’s music will elevate Inttelligent well.

Are you in plans to lend your voice in future for your films?

I would love to dub for my roles. I am currently learning Telugu and will soon lend my voice for my films.

Your upcoming movies?

I am working with Vijay Devarakonda in the direction of Parasuram. Geetha Arts is producing this film and I have offers in Tamil and Malayalam. Telugu films are my first priority and I love to be in Hyderabad.

Why did Lavanya lose two films in a short span??

0

2017 is proving out to be quite an unlucky year for actress Lavanya Tripathi. All three released films of hers this year: Radha, Mister and Yuddham Sharanam bombed at box office. And, the beautiful actress has recently lost 2 potential films because of a misunderstanding.

Lavanya has earlier signed director Parasuram’s new film starring Vijay Deverakonda. Bunny Vasu produces this film on GA2 Pictures, a subsidiary of Geetha Arts. The actress has recently signed another film, the Tamil remake of ‘100% Love’. As the heroine’s character in the Tamil film has as much screen time as hero’s, Lavanya was asked to allot bulk dates, and she signed a contract to this effect.

When Director Chadramouli, who will be directing the Tamil remake of 100% Love, came to know about Lavanya acting in GA2 film too, he called Bunny Vasu and apprised him of the bulk dates’ contract that she had signed for his film. He also conveyed that Lavanya may not be readily available for their film as she will be occupied with his Tamil film.

Fearing that their film might get delayed because of Lavanya’s multiple commitments, Bunny Vasu and director Parasuram started holding discussions of replacing her. The ‘Andala Rakshasi’ actress was quite disturbed upon learning this as the producers and directors of the two films were holding discussions without even asking her once about how she could accommodate dates for both the films. A vexed Lavanya walked out of both the films.

Rising Kannada actress Rashmika Mandanna has replaced Lavanya in the GA2 film, an official announcement has also been made in this regard. ‘Kumari 21F’ star Hebah Patel is in talks to replace Lavanya in ‘100% love’ remake.

Screenplay of Yuddham Sharanam will Surprise Everyone : Chaitu

After tasting a decent success with Ra Randoi Veduka Chooddam, Naga Chaitanya Akkineni is gearing up to engage and entertain audience with his next outing ‘Yuddham Sharanam’, which is slated to hit screens on Sep 8.

Ahead of the film’s release, here is our exclusive interview with Chaitu.

* Whom are you doing this Yuddham (War) for?
– For family. We have already showcased it in the trailer. A happy go lucky youth entangles in an unexpected issue. What he does for his family to keep them safe is the story. The line may look simple but the screenplay is quite novel. Telugu audiences have never seen this kind of screenplay. They will go out of theatres satisfied after watching the film.

* This film’s director is your friend. Have you done this film for his sake?
– Yes, director Krishna is my childhood friend. He is very passionate about films. Krishna has been struggling for past four years but his debut film has finally materialized with me. I accepted the film as I had fallen in love with the script. We together convinced producer Sai Korrapati, who has emerged as the c/o address for good and novel cinema. Krishna and I wanted to make it as a small film but Korrapati’s uncompromising nature made it a big film.

* How important is this film for your career?
– Very important. RRVC took me closer to family audiences and I hope Yuddham Sharanam will help me connect to youth and mass audiences. This is very crucial film for me.

* Is this an action drama?
– There will be action but it will be fresh. Drone camera has been used as a plot element in the film. Screenplay will surprise everyone.

* How could the team convince Srikanth to essay Negative role?
– Villain has an exceptional role in the film. We needed a talent powerhouse. Both Krishna and Sai Korrapati came up with the idea of casting Srikanth and he agreed when approached. His acting is a major asset to the film.

* Lavanya Tripathi has earlier acted with your father. How it felt to act with her?
– Yes, it happens very rarely. She is a sincere artiste. She has a meaty role in the film and she gave her best.

* Tell us something about Savyasachi?
– It is a film based on a different concept yet it is a complete commercial film. Savyasachi means ambidextrous, someone who can fight with equal power with both hands. My left hand doesn’t listen to me in this film. The action sequences will be first of its kind.

* About film with Maruthi?
– We haven’t yet finalized the story yet.

* About marriage?
-It will happen on October 6 in Goa. A Hindu style wedding ceremony will be followed by a Christian style. Marriage ceremony will be a simple one but the reception will be held in a grand manner.
