F3 Movie Review
F3 Fun and Frustration Review
Telugu360 Rating 3/5
Anand Prasad (Murali Sharma), an influential businessman is in search of his lost heir. Venky, the sole breadwinner of a family in cinematic crisis, provides shortcut services. Varun is an expert day dreamer. They attempt to get rich via the trap the rich girl scheme, only the rich girl happens to be Tamannah’s sister Mehreen, who have the same plan. One thing leads to another, and the group finds themselves in a tough spot in need of money to get out from. What happens when these frustrated folks cross paths with Anand Prasad makes up the rest of the movie.
As with F2, do not expect any logics in F3. Check In your thinking hats outside the theater and only expect to be treated to Director Anil Ravipudi’s trademark slapstick comedy. Where F2 dealt with fun and frustration in relationships, F3 shows us the fun(?) and frustrating sides of not having the money that you want.
Using core cast from F2, Anil Ravipudi created a relatively engaging canvas with some laughs and no concrete story. The episodes where the characters end up in fits was good – use of old timer songs in the background is a nice touch.
First half of the movie deals with establishing the characters and we get to see pretty much the entire cast of F2 reappraising their roles in same fashion. Venkatesh leads the way with screentime through the entire movie. His comedy timing and antics with dealing with his night blindness are very funny.
The track with Venkata Rao’s wife is a signature Anil Ravipudi’ creatives and expertly delivered by Venkatesh. Varun Tej does a good job with good Telangana accent dialogues and his stammer covering mannerism are top notch. After a long time, we see Sunil playing to his strength as the fun sidekick. Rajendra Prasad and Sampath Raj play corrupt cops and provide the subplot that further ties the characters together. Ali’s episodes generated some laughs.
Second half of the movie deals with another scam to get their hands on Anand Prasad (Murali Sharma’s) money. With more laughs – some fun and some forced the movie makes its way to the climax episode. The expert use of movie parodies a treat to watch – albeit a bit too packed. May be could have cut down on a few of the parodies. Venky and Varun Tej excel with unique mannerisms. Sunil and Raghu babu do decent job as sidekick.
Songs are not upto the mark. Editing could have been a bit crisper.
Venkatesh’s & Varun Tej’s performance
- Few Comedy Blocks
- No reasonable story
F3 is an entertainer with Venky leading the way. There are fun scenes here and there, which might work well with family audience. Don’t expect any logic in the movie ,You can watch once if you want to get some respite from over-the-top action movies from recent past in Telugu.
