Endendigu marks the directorial debut of another choreographer from KFI, Imran Sardariya; Imran, who has choreographed more than 400 songs in his decade long career, has helmed a film for the first time and had promised a unique, entertaining romantic thriller. Well, has he kept the promise? Read on!
The movie opens with a brief introduction of the main characters in the film, Krishna (Ajay Rao ) and Jyothi(Radhika Pandit) and the entire film revolves only around these two! Krishna and Jyothi are madly in love with each other, convince their parents and get married. Just before the marriage the 'bachelor party' song is placed, which gets maximum whistles from the audience. By the end of the first half, the couple shift to Sweden and Krishna meets with a mishap and dies. Cut… Intermission…
The second part opens with a scene that suggests that it was not a mishap but hallucination of Jyothi, who in the second half keeps finding ways to safe guard her husband. How Jyothi comes out of the problem and how supportive Krishna is to Jyothi to come out of her problem forms the crux of the story. However, the much-waited 'thriller element' is missing in the film!
Ajay Rao and Radhika Pandit are tailor-made for the role. Their chemistry is perfect, their romantic gestures, the 'sweet-nothings' acts make them one of the most loved couple in tinsel town.
First half is brilliant and takes off smoothly, however the movie loses its phase in the second half; second half is a little too elaborate and editing could have been sharper in the second half.
Imran wins as a director but has to improve in terms of narration which is concerned.
V Harikrishna's music is excellent; songs Ninnalle, Endendigu and Bachelor party are good. Choreography and cinematography are the heart and soul of the film! They are beyond excellent and are sure to set a new trend in KFI.
Apart from Ajay Rao and Radhika Pandit, Dattatreya, Tabla Nani and Ashok play pivotal roles and they have all done justice to their roles. Overall, it is a good attempt by Imran and can be watched once to encourage the budding director.
