Sushanth has come up with his new venture ‘Current’ and how much voltage he has been able to generate with the audience and also with Sneha Ullal, let us see.
Sushanth (Sushanth) is a happy go lucky who believes in the present and does not care about the future. He falls in love at first sight with Sneha (Sneha) and from then on chases her. Sneha falls in love with him but her father (Charanraj) is not too confident about Sushanth given his carefree and irresponsible nature. Sushanth does not listen when Sneha tries to explain the same. So she asks Sushanth to take away the love that he has created in her heart. What happens from there forms the rest of the story. How he takes that away and what happens in climax forms the Current!!!!
Sushanth has improved in his dance and body language but he still needs to work on his expressions. Hardly he is able to give 4-5 expressions and he seems to be over conscious about his mouth. He should come out from that to give the best.
Sneha Ullal gave her glamorous presence and though she has those blank expressions at times, she still looks cute and sensuous.
Tanikella was ok in his role, Charanraj was underutilized, Vennela Kishore managed few laughs, Brahmanandam was abrupt, Reshmi looked a stunner and she has shown good potential, Raghu Babu was impressive, Shafi was alright and the others did not have much to contribute.
The dialogues were weak, the script was alright and the screenplay was acceptable. Background score was okay and two songs are worth taking home. Other tunes of Devi Sri Prasad seem to be taken from his old stock tunes. They are insipid and pale. Cinematography was up to standard and editing was crisp. The production values of the film were of high scale and the costumes and art department did a neat job.
The film comes across with a concept on love but then it is the narrative that kind of got complicated in conveying it. Apparently, there is a lack of continuity in the scenes and though the second half had few moments of intensity, the feel has been missing.
Comedy could have worked really better had the makers focused a bit. Brahmanandam came with a good entry but his exit was unknown and dull. Raghu Babu and Shafi managed good comedy but that was not worked for long. Lack of strength in dialogues and not very high caliber music from Devi Sri also were some key elements. However, the youth audience will go through a roller coaster ride of emotions and if only the makers looked at working on pulling the chords like ‘Tholi Prema’ ‘Ullasanga Utsahanga’ then it would have been a runaway hit.
First half is dull and second half gripped some emotions but the run couldnt pull crowds on to screen.
The success of this film will run on publicity and fate and nothing else.
