Varudu Kaavalenu Review : A Family Film

Varudu Kaavalenu review

Varudu Kaavalenu review


Akash, Bhoomi were college mates in Manipal Institute of Science and Technology. While in college days, Bhoomi couldn’t express her love with Akash and they part ways after the education is complete. Bhoomi, who transforms into an authoritarian lady, manages a startup company in Hyderabad. After few years of no communication, Akash and Bhoomi meet each other on an architectural project. This time Akash likes her but hesitates to propose. Rest of the story is how each of them deals with their past and present love life.

‘Varudu Kavalenu’ is a simple story to start with and goes on lighter mode. The corporate office setup for Bhoomi ( Ritu Varma) as owner, Vennela Kishore and others as employees it is familiar recipe for some entertainment. As Akash (Naga Shaurya) comes to Hyderabad and take up a project with Bhoomi’s company, the flirting starts. Within 30 minutes into the film, audience do take note of the impressive dialogues written by debutante writer Ganesh Ravuri. Debutante director Lakshmi Sowjanya scores well in making women audience feel connect to the scenes. First half passes with no big plot twists as such, its all keep it simple approach.
Second half starts with college flashback story which is unimpressive but ends in a quick 20 minutes session. Murali Sharma Nadiya conversation scene about how parents should think about their daughter’s life stands out and best scene of the film. Story picks up momentum when Akash, Bhoomi and others go to a village for their colleague’s marriage. Saptagiri’s Lag comedy is hilarious for 15 minutes. Comedy scenes on Tiktok fanatic girls worked out a bit. Climax takes predictable path and ends on happy note.

Naga Shaurya’s best film in terms of his looks, dress sense. He is naturally classy as an architect, performed with ease. Ritu Varma who picks her characters best suit to her body language, yet again got impressive role as Bhoomi. Nadiya, Murali Sharma as parents of Bhoomi played their standard roles. Vennela Kishore, Praveen, Saptagiri handled comedy department.

Production values are of good standards, Sithara entertainments must be commended for the lavish spend. Music by Vishal C is impressive and on screen picturization is good for three songs. Cinematography by Vamsi captures frames elegantly, natural locations’ aerial shots are cool. Overall good work by him

Naga Shaurya , Ritu and Casting
Family Oriented clean film
Decent comedy entertainment
Good songs
Crisp runtime

Negatives :
Weak conflict point
Predictable plot

Verdict :

‘Varudu Kaavalenu’ is a good watch for family audience, average film for youngsters. There is adequate entertainment in both halves, packed with fresh dialogues. However, slow paced treatment, no high moments, and main plot lacks strong conflict point are flipside. Regardless of drawbacks, this is a class film aimed at urban sections.

Keshava trailer promises an edge of the seat thriller


Actor Nikhil and Swamy Rara fame Sudheer Varma teamed up for yet another thriller titled Keshava.

After setting high expectations with the impressive teaser and the curious posters, the first trailer of the film has been unveiled today evening. The one minute 22 second trailer offers an intriguing watch for the audience.

The finely cut teaser starts on an interesting note with hero’s narration of his abnormal heart condition. His heart is pointed to the left side and beats 90 times per minute. He should ensure that the heart beat doesn’t go beyond the rate, failing which he may succumb to death. Then we are introduced to a cold-blooded murder which seems to carry the film’s narrative forward. Going by the trailer, it looks like Isha Koppikar got a meaty role in the film.

The thumping background score given by Sunny MR makes the trailer an interesting watch and promises an edge of the seat thriller after the film’s release.

Starring Ritu Varma as the female lead, Keshava is coming from the stables of Abhishek Productions. The film is slated for May 19th release.

Pelli Choopulu Review : Refreshing and Disruptive Entertainer


Pelli Choopulu Movie Review

Telugu360 Rating 3.25/5

“Pelli Choopulu” is the film that gives a convincing interpretation of what happens when you push grown-up girls and boys into an pre-arranged date to size up each other.There was an old film released in 1983 with the title “Pelli Choopulu” starring Vijay Shanti and Chandramohan which speaks of post-marital blues. But the current film stays true to the title by weaving a cute love story that revolves around the ritual of arranged dates and the anxiety pangs that grow from it pre-marriage.

Director Tharun Bhascker Dhaasyam creates a vibrant rom-com which shows an improbable romance build between one such pair who “accidentally” see each other in the most unlikeliest of meetings. Into this narrative get dragged a set of parents who nudge their children to do their bidding. A story-telling full of racy screenplay and engaging characterization, the director gives a treat of emotions that are hard to get captured on celluloid nowadays via “Pelli Choopulu”. It reminds you of the golden era films of the 60s where directors made “personal films” films true to their own experience and the worlds they come from.


In less than 125 minutes, the film draws you into the story and the characters appear to grow on you in their cycle of roller coaster emotions. What makes the film a winner is the director’s laser-sharp focus on the main theme with a tight screenplay.    A lot more interesting stuff happens around few families than just a tense exchange of glances and Moti choor laddos between parents and brides and bridegrooms. The comedy track also gets built with the main narrative with  a newcomer Priyadarshi Pulikonda and his side-kick; they keep the chuckles on with a heavy Telangana accent which is distinctly different from the Andhra accent the elders speak in the film –a strategy that will  work in both the states.There is good support from Kedar Shankar (father of the hero), Gururaj Manepalli (father of the heroine) and Nandu (lover of Ritu Varma). On a flip side, narration is slow and that’s not a big deal.



Ritu Varma is a revelation in the way she carried the strength of her character which drives the story around. She is a mixture of calmness, resilience and character yet shows her vulnerable and tempestuous side with restraint. Ritu’s role is something that even imported Tollywood Divas who charge a bomb don’t get in a career. Her screen presence is matched equally by Vijay Devarakonda who already stole the show in “Evade Subramanyam”. Vijay’s intensity and restlessness on screen always demands your attention and this movie underscores that one more time. There are two scenes in which he takes charge after hearing a mouthful from other characters – and they give you goosebumps enough. With the likes of Nani, Sarvanand upping the stakes in Tollywood, Vijay is a worthwhile contender in the genre. Another show-stealer is Anish Kuruvilla who enters in the second half and delivers a knock-out performance. All the actors look their natural best and come out spontaneous in their roles – a rare feel in a film with few debutants.

Dialogues and screenplay by Tharun also score good.Ultimately, the clarity in the script is what takes it to end with a breeze except a few scenes after interval which seem a drag, especially the drinking scene. The beauty of the film is the director stuck to his perspective on marriage and romance with dignity and neatness that many commercial film-makers would have botched up with additions of scenes and needless songs. Eventually, only films like this can be watched repeatedly without getting bored, not commercial films which don’t stand the test of time after multiple viewings. Where Tharun can improve is in increasing the intensity of emotions – you have to know when to “milk” an emotion to the hilt to become a great director from a good director. The first half outdoes the second half, even if the second half has more story movement. Something to think of for Tharun. Yet he has a long way to go with a classy output as this.

Credit must go to producers Raj Kandukuri and Yash Rangineni for backing the script when they first heard it. Producer D.Suresh came in much later after the underwriting of risk by the duo producers which is also interesting considering the baggage of content usually backed by big production houses.

Music & Cinematography :

Music by Vivek Sagar has to be commended in two parts. Firstly, his music has the sound of a new-age music composer who can intermix Ilaiyaraja, Amit Trivedi and AR Rahman in one groove and all the songs in the CD smack of an original feel of a new prodigy. BGM elevates the moods to a new high with a mix of vocals, violins and Blues Harmonica. There are half-a-dozen instances in the film where Vivek Sagar infuses classical and fusion music instrumentation with vocals to uplift a mood or strike a chord with the right emotions of the scene. For those familiar with Vivek’s work in Tapeloop, the film has extra songs added which are not in the CD. That’s what makes the film an extra audio-visual treat to watch and the composer a promising one to watch out for.

Cinematography by Nagesh is another high which makes the debut film of Tarun more exciting to watch than some of the best debut films of directors like Shekar Kammula etc. You can see earthy shots of Secunderabad and Hyderabad in familiar settings but you can still catch a glimpse of a beautiful sunset or a moonlit night. Since the emotions are important, both the cinematographer and director seem to be conscious of taking mostly non-closeup shots and simple shot divisions that don’t distract. Sound sync is another aspect that deserves mention – if it saves time and money, so be it. The feel of the film gets more real with sound syncing dialogues where all artists dubbed on the spot.


Pelli Choopulu is a film with a clean–U certificate, loads of comedy and real-life moments that occur to us commonly – all packaged into a feel-good film which can be unhesitatingly watched by all age groups. One can sense that another redefining “small” film makes a giant leap in content that will strike a chord with all audiences. It has a good intro, sails smoothly with an interval block and then builds up into a crescendo with pre-climax and climax – without using commercial shortcuts or boring scenes. It has a formula without a formula approach that can set new paradigms of entertainment. Good to see a film keep its promise with the positive buzz drummed up from the day of the teaser release. Recommended for universal family viewing.
