Andhagaadu – Review

Goutham (Raj Tarun) is an orphan staying in a blind school along with his friends. He grows up to become a RJ and falls in love with Nethra (Hebbah Patel). He impresses her despite his shortcomings. Will he able to see again, why he starts behaving in a peculiar manner etc forms the rest of the story.

How is this movie different?

Though ordinary in terms of direction and overall experience, the film has a couple of good twists.

How did the Actors Perform?

Raj Tarun once again gets to play a happy-go-lucky youngster role. He did his part well, though his performance in emotional scenes could have been better. Hebbah too continues in her chirpy categorization mode. She appears to have put on some weight.

Shiyaji Shinde appears in a Telugu film after a bit of break and its a welcome return for him. Ashish Vidyarthi too impresses in his role. We have already harped about Raja Ravindra’s appearances in the films of heroes he manages in our ‘Kittu Unnadu Jagratha’ review. In this film he acts as the main villain. All we could say is that any film which has Raja Ravindra as main villain will automatically have a b-grade feel towards it. Rajendra Prasad played a role which is vital for the story to move forward. But majority of his scenes are ill conceived and even a great actor like him can’t salvage them. Satya did well as heroes friend.

Analysis

The film is a decent idea on paper. It also has a good screenplay. In general, the twists in our movies can be anticipated. But the film has atleast a couple of good twists which the audience wont anticipate. But in order to create such surprise there is atleast 45 minutes of junk thrown in between. Added to that the direction is not upto the mark. A bit more script work for some scenes would have helped the film. Casting also went haywire due to the poor choice of villian. Comedy scenes written for Rajendra Prasad were clumsy. Some scenes which required a bit of lead up to create hype were kept short. Whereas some scenes that could have been done away with are part of the film. From music perspective, the songs in the first half are quite peppy. Background music could have been better.

Release Date – 2nd June, 2017

Super Telugu Take –

Nani, Sharwa, Nikhil and Raj Tarun have been the 4 mid range heroes who are coming up purely because of their ability to choose good scripts. This is a sort of film which could have done well if more script work was done and a better director was at helm. Nevertheless it was bearable and not one of those headache inducing types.

Super Telugu Rating – 3/5
