Cast: Manchu Vishnu, Payal Rajput, Sunny Leone
Produced By: Ava Entertainment and 24 Frames Factory
Release Date: 21st October
After a gap of more than a year and a half, Manchu Vishnu is returning to the big screen with his ambitious project Ginna. His last release Mosagallu was a massive disaster and the actor is looking to mark a strong comeback with Ginna
The movie has an interesting star cast with names like Kona Venkat, Payal Rajput, and Sunny Leone in prominent roles. Manchu Vishnu feels this will be a comeback for him and the film is being promoted as a complete entertainer. The movie is out and so is the audience’s verdict. Let’s check out what worked and what didn’t
Story: Ginna (Vishnu) lives in a village called Rangampet and has a huge burden of unpaid loans on him. To clear his loans, he targets Renuka (Sunny Leone) who’s an NRI and has returned to Rangampet on a personal mission. Ginna along with his girlfriend Swathi (Payal Rajput) plans to con Renuka and settle his loans. However, Renuka is not the simpleton that she’s pretending to be and she has her own plans. What’s the twist? and how does the story progress? This is what the movie follows.
Performances: Acting wise there is nothing much to talks about in the film. The film purely banks on Sunny Leone and Payal Rajput’s glamour along with Manchu Vishnu’s feeble attempts to grow into a mass hero with fights and dances. The extended cast of Vennela Kishore, Naresh, Satyam Rajesh and co. have standard roles with not much essence to the plot. Sunil makes a brief appearance however, the character has not been created to add much value to the proceedings.
Analysis: Ginna is a half-hearted, predictable entertainer that had potential but goes awry in execution. Chota K Naidu’s visuals and Anup Rubens music are one of the better elements of the movie. The movie’s routine plot and passable performances from the lead cast doesn’t allow the audience to enjoy the twists and turns of the story
- Some scenes in first half
- Cliched screenplay
- Poorly written characters
- Double meaning dialogues
- Lead pair
It’s high time Manch Vishnu does some brainstorming and comes up with plots that are better written with some redeeming qualities. Technically Ginna is good but that’s where the positives end. Better screenplay and removing some scenes would have definitely made Ginna a watchable fare.
