Movie: Nenu Meeku Baaga Kavalsinavaadini
Cast: Kiran Abbavaram, Sanjana Anand, Sonu Thakur
Director: Sridhar Gadhe
Produced By: Kodi Divya Deepthi
Release Date: September 16th, 2022
Kiran Abbavaram’s Nenu Meeku Baaga Kavalsinavaadini released today marking his third release of the year. This year he had two releases in the form of Sebastian P.C.524 and Sammathame. Both these movies failed to win the audience’s hearts and he has pinned high hopes on this project. Does the film have enough to get him out of the slump? Let’s find out.
Story: Teju (Sanjana Anand) an IT employee finds herself in a dangerous situation after a drunk episode. Vivek (Kiran Abbavaram) a cab driver rescues her from this situation and the two get close after this. Where does this friendship head to? And what happens when Teju and Vivek’s past is revealed? How they deal with the flurry of emotions is what the movie is about.
Performances: Kiran Abbavaram has the same old boy next door role in the project. Performance-wise, there is nothing new to take back and his mannerisms and dialogues can be distracting at times. The comedy from his side also falls flat and the punches don’t land as intended. Sanjana Anand as the damsel in distress has a meaty role but fails to impress with her acting skills. Ditto with Sonu Thakur who has a well-written character but does little justice to her role.
Analysis: Nenu Meeku Baaga Kavalsinavaadini can be described as a collection of gags that fail to impress. The writing by Kiran Abbavaram is the biggest weak point of the film. The film definitely has a few moments but doesn’t have many of these to keep the audience entertained. The emotions between father and daughter are given a lot of prominences but not established well at all. The audience might feel detached to the proceedings.
- Mani Sharma’s music
- Lazy writing
- Cringe scenes
Kiran Abbavaram definitely needs to reinvent himself both as a writer as well as an actor. While a lot of emphasis has been put on giving commercial elements in the film, the most important part- writing has been heavily ignored.
