Jagapati Babu, Priyamani, Hamsa Nandini, Brahmanandam
The Pellaina Kottalo pair of Jagapathi Babu and Priyamani are back to repeat the same magic with Pravarkyudu. The basic plotline of lovers, who drifted ways for various reasons finding their true love 10 years later, sounds good on paper. But the execution of the film is not that smooth, like the concept. Only second half and climax sequences are convincing in this film as director Madan fails to handle his theme perfectly.
Sasi (Jagapathi Babu), a professor of biology at Harvard University of the US, makes a comeback to his native place. He makes an attempt to settle in life for which he prompts a couple of alliances. But, they dont fit into his mindset. His friend Ravi (Sunil) brings out a logic that Sasi is still not able to forget his classmate Sailaja (Priyamani). The hero goes nostalgic about his college days.
A decade ago? Sasi and Sailaja were classmates in a college. Packs of guys were after Sailaja, the college beauty. But, Sasi believes that marriage is like meals and that love is like a soup taken prior to dinner. Sailaja was averse to this philosophy. Failing completely in wooing the modern Pravarakhyudu, Sailaja gives up the idea and go her way.
Afresh, Sasi enters a college as lecturer in biology. There, Sailaja is the principal. What a terrific reunion? Whey does Sasi join the college? What follows next? These questions would form an interesting climax.
For Jagapathi Babu, it is a tailor-made role. Though his student-getup is something odd, he looked handsome as a lecturer, sizzling all romantic and lighter vein scenes. Priyamani has both glamour and performance to show in the flick. Hamsanandhini looked stunningly beautiful though participated in a single song. Sunil as the hero?s friend contributed to the maximum extent to the comedy wing, followed by Brahmanandam as lecturer; Ali as African; and Dharmavarapu as Telugu lecturer.
The story is developed with a simple concept about human relationships with an extra dose of love. The director has given importance to project that each and every individual will have his or her own moorings about certain concepts like love or hatred. The exposition of one of the logics that the longevity of love depends on the longevity of hormones in a human body is something ridiculous.
Technical aspects of the film are perfect. Songs and music synch well with each other, while selection of the scenic locations are a plus. MM Keeravani?s background score is very pleasing to ears. ?Neela? Neelimabbu Nelakocche? song would provide a pleasant sojourn to the audience. Dialogues are good. On the whole, the film is okay but it could have been better if the length is trimmed and more comedy is included.
Verdict: A decent family entertainer
Time pass comedy entertainer
Average comedy entertainer
Decent rural family entertainer
Soubin Shahir and Mamta Mohandas shine in this conventional film
