The film ‘Vinayakudu’ was a major success and this has led to the sequel of the film ‘Village Lo Vinayakudu’. The expectations are obviously high on this one and whether they have been met or not, let us see.
Set on the backdrop of a village, the story is about Karthik (Krishnudu) a teacher in Hyderabad and it is love at first sight for him when he sees Kavya (Saranya) a doctor. She lives with her father Colonel Laxmipathi (Rao Ramesh), an ex-serviceman at their village and one day Karthik lands at their door confessing his love and asking for Kavya’s hand. Her father strictly retaliates and from then on, Karthik begins his efforts to win the hearts of Kavya’s father and her family. Meanwhile Col Laxmipathi’s friend (Yandamoori Veerendranath) makes attempts to separate Karthik from Kavya. Is he successful or not forms the rest.
Yet again, he has come up with a good performance and not many challenges for him in this one. He has done his best in carrying the film on his shoulders throughout and did a fairly good job. His body language and few dialogues bring smiles and make him look much cuter and perfect.
She is looking sweet and her performance is also good. She has got wonderful photogenic features and for the role she suited best. She certainly loots many hearts with her cute expressions and naughty smiles.
He has done justice to the role and has come up with some highlight dialogues and catchy scenes. This is a different character he has done unlike his earlier movies and he makes his presence felt. He is trying to imitate Prakash Raj knowingly or unknowingly in some scenes and that should be avoided.
He has given few stiff expressions in front of the camera. But his character is interesting although little.
Though he had a brief presence, he gave his best shot and there are few places where he made his presence felt very well.

Pace in screenplay could be better
This is the sincere attempt by the director, and he scores good encomiums from all sectors of audiences. He has knitted the movie with all dexterities that a hero should possess. It is an eye opener for many directors those are showing heroes as smugglers, professional killers, thieves and robbers. The film condemns ‘ridiculing mythology’ which should be underlined. That’s a good lesson.
It is the effort that really appeals as it is made with honesty and sincerity. The film is a clean flick and it has enough ingredients to appeal to the family audience but then it doesn’t have that sort of momentum and pace.
There are no idle moments due to its good presentation. Background score was ok, songs were worth, picturization was top notch. While the first half is quite mild, it is not until the second half that the real tempo begins. Overall, the film is good in parts but could have been better. So it can be appreciated for its efforts than anything else.
