Having scored a blockbuster with ‘Kick’, crazy mass hero Ravi Teja has arrived with his new movie and given his hit combination with Nayantara, the expectations have been high. Whether it has met them or not, let us see
Anjaneyulu (Ravi) is a straight forward guy with a care a damn attitude. He works with a TV channel and one day he meets Anjali (Nayan). It is love at first sight for him, his life takes a turn when an unforeseen incident happens for his parents Krishnamurthy (Nasser), Lakshmi (Vinaya). How he deals with that issue forms rest of the story line.
As a part of his profession, Anjaneyulu changes his name as Pavan and enters as sleeping cell in the group of some anti social elements. There is a connection between his profession and personal life from then. The suspense is revealed in second half and real saga continues from then.
It is Ravi’s show all the way and his energetic performance keeps the tempo high. He has become versatile with his expressions and his emotions are quite good. The screen presence of Ravi Teja has been growing strong with each passing movie of his.
She didn’t have much to do in this one but then there is not much of oomph show from her end, Nayan could have checked the hair stylist and the make up artistes, she looked quite dull in this one. Not much for her to do in terms of performance. Radio Mirchi Sowmya's dubbing for Nayantara is perfectly in sync and elevated the role.
Brahmanandam made his presence felt, Jeeva was neat, Srinivas Reddy was good, Jayaprakash Reddy was regular, Sonu Sood flaunted his muscles but not much scope to perform for him. M S Narayana provided few laughs, Nasser was elegant, Prakashraj was good, Raja Ravindra was normal, the others did their bit to contribute.
The film has been presented decently but it is the narrative which kept things going. The dialogues were witty and sensible wherever required, script was written neatly, screenplay was apt. Two songs were good, background score was okay, cinematography was up to the standard. Editing was crisp. Costumes were alright but not good for Nayantara, art department was neat.
* Ravi Teja’s energy levels
* Comedy of Brahmanandam
* Pace of the film
* Nayantara’s make up
* Item song on Kim Sharma with huge noises
The film has got nothing new to offer but one can see traces of Puri Jagannadh in it, though the formula is old, it was narrated keeping the audience engaged. The first half just whizzes past leaving no idle moment. The second half slows down due to the sentiment and melodrama angle and unwanted songs but overall, the film has got enough ingredients to take it to the success mark.
Puri’s influence is totally carried on Parasuram in this film. He has all energies to match the requirements of a star director. He proved with this film that he can handle big heroes, big budget, big comedy and big action. And there are influences of Shankar on his too, especially while dealing with some funeral scenes in second half.
After Kick, again Anjaneyulu has something for masses and action-comedy film lovers.
Bottom line: Can be watched
