Siva (Prince) joins a liquor mafia company, run by Bapineedu and Chitti Talli (Teertha), as a supply boy to clear off his debts.

The company is full of young boys and girls with financial woes. There he meets a girl Gatyathri (Nanditha), and love blossoms between them. They are forced to flee from the company and Bapineedu and Chitti Talli go after them.

Young lovers caught in a messy situation is director Teja`s favourite subject. He adds a dash of bootlegging to it in Neeku Naaku Dash Dash, his new romantic thriller.

With newcomers in the lead roles, Teja talks about youngsters working as bootleggers. This backdrop of the liquor mafia in the dense Araku valley gives a fresh look to an otherwise oft- repeated subject, teenage love.

Teja seems to have been inspired by two recent Tamil movies, Angaaditheru (dubbed in Telugu as Shopping Mall) and Mynaa (Prema Khaidi in Telugu).

The story takes momentum after 50 minutes of the movie and sustains the interest post interval too but pre-climax sequences fizzle out. Plus points of the movie are its cinematography, first 40 minutes of second half, and music.

But the movie needs trimming. Newcomers Prince and Nanditha are good in roles of a simple boy and girl, both of them play deglamorised roles.

Nanditha has expressive eyes. Teertha has played the role of a lady villain perfectly. Suman Shetty and Venu tried to provide laughter in a film that has not much entertainment. Parachuri Venkateshwara Rao and the actor who portrayed the role of Bapineedu are good. Benarjee as a cop is also neat.

On technical front, Rasool Ellore`s camera work stands out. Shot on Red Epic camera, Rasool Ellore has captured the misty Araku valley locations beautifully. Two songs by new music composer Yashwanth are good while Anup Rubens has provided the background score.

Some dialogues are pretty good. Director Teja has selected a good storyline and he has not infused unnecessary comedy to focus more on script. But he should have used taut narration. His work is far better than his recent movies.

The backdrop of a liquor mafia set in a dense forest and the love angle has added some novelty to Teja`s Neeku Naaku Dash Dash. Good locations and music are plus points of this movie. On the whole, it is an okay movie.

Rating: 2.75/5
