The trailer of Naga Shaurya and Ritu Varma starrer “Varudu Kaavelenu” looked so promising. The film comes from a production house that has made quality films such as “Jersey” has raised expectations. Many factors have contributed to arousing curiosity. A female director directing this rom-com is one of the reasons it has created a good buzz.

Let’s see how much fun this romantic story is.

Story:

Akash (Naga Shaurya) who works as an architect in Paris comes to Hyderabad. Bhumi (Ritu Varma) runs a start-up organic products business in Hyderabad, and the business is financed by a businessman (Jayaprakash).

The businessman offers Akash to design a project they plan to launch and Akash agrees. Akash and Bhumi know each other because they studied at the same Engineering College.

Meanwhile, Bhumi’s mother Prabha (Nadhiya) is looking for a groom for her daughter and pressures her to get married.

Akash falls in love with Bhumi and is looking for the right time to propose to her, but she is not an easy person to come by.

When all goes well with them, a minor incident causes them to break up. What happened? Why does that Bhumi maintain a hard attitude on the outside? Is there any plan other than the project for Akash to come to Hyderabad?

Performances by artists:

Naga Shaurya charms again as a romantic hero. He fits the character up to a T, and does his part well.

Ritu Varma has given a mature performance. The story revolves around her and she takes the opportunity to shine.

Nadhiya as Ritu Varma’s mother slips effortlessly into her role. Sapthagiri provides a burst of laughter in the second half. Murali Sharma only gets one or two standout scenes.

Technical excellence:

Vishal Chandrasekhar and Thaman have given an average musical score. A few songs are okay. If the songs had been catchy and gone viral, the movie would have been even better.

Vamsi Patchipulusu’s photography is excellent. Colorful frames can be seen throughout the film. Ganesh Kumar Ravuri dialogues are decent and clean. Rich production values ​​are another advantage.

Highlights:
Sapthagiri’s Comedy Number
Dialogues

Disadvantage:
Outdated storyline
Lack of strong conflicts
slow story

Analysis

At first, “Varudu Kaavelenu” sounds very familiar, but the message of the undercurrent could have really made a difference if the scenario had been worked out properly.

New director Lakshmi Sowjanya asks a question: Why do parents give their sons enough time to settle in their careers and lives before asking them to get married, but not for their daughters? Why do parents ask the daughters if she is mentally ready for marriage?

We learn the message in the third act of the film when Murali Sharma, the father of Bhumi (played by Ritu Varma), brings up the point. Until then, the film runs in regular rom-com style of two lovers taking the time to overcome their misunderstandings and burn their bridges. We don’t see any major conflict in the story.

Thus, the beginning of the film, to be exactly a large part of the first half, seems to be a retelling of “Manmadhudu”. The office drama starring Ritu Varma and Naga Shaurya reminds us of Sonali Bendre and Nagarjuna, the only difference being that Ritu plays the part of Nag.

The storyline also seems to be a lift and shift from that of Jagapathi Babu-Priyamani’s “Pravarakhyudu”, but nothing new.

The opening section focuses on simple romantic and habitual moments that we regularly see in a rom-com – a mother obsessed with marrying off her daughter, a heroine who slowly falls in love and a misunderstanding, office drama, etc.

However, the office comedy scenes seem a bit forced, Vennela Kishore’s comedy track and Himaja’s selfie track are miserable. There are plenty of actors in the film, but except for three or four characters, none of them impress. Hero’s mother thread is forgotten after one scene.

The film is boring for the first 40 minutes and not much happens on screen, but it starts to grip 30 minutes after that and gives the feeling that the narration has hit the track. But again, there’s a precipitous drop with the flashback college episode, which is a big disappointment. The placement of the song ‘digu digu digu naga’ also disrupted the flow.

Despite “delay” in the story, the dramatic scenes towards the end make it a decent movie, but not anything alluring.

All things considered, ‘Varudu Kaavalenu’ is a time pass movie with a few comedic scenes in the second half. Despite the slow pace and predictable scenario, it’s a fine watch.

Bottom line: Outdated but partly fascinating
