Comic hero Allari Naresh has made his come back with political drama Itlu Maredumilli Prajaneekam and it was released today. Here’re its review and rating.
Allari Naresh, who played as Srinivas, a Telugu teacher, is sent to Maredumilli forest area to hold elections. After landing there, he comes to know the terrible situation of the villagers who are struggling for fundamental needs. He then makes a plan and joins their fight against the government. The main plot of the film shows how does he manage to fulfil his goal.
Initially, the film is an average execution, as there is a lack of emotional connectivity and depth. But it is admirable for the performances of the actors of the film. Allari Naresh has attempted well as a Telugu teacher. Though he performed as a comedy hero in his earlier movies, his matured action in this film is extraordinary. Heroine Anandhi looks cute on screen and she has given her best. As usual, Vennela Kishore lived as the film’s soul, he just nailed in his character.
The locations and the plight of the villagers who live in forest areas have been showcased in the movie are marvellous. Compared to the first half, second half is quite impressive with some emotional scenes and the interval twist is making the audience to think about it.
Coming to the story, it is an outdated one and lacks depth in it. Audience feel there is nothing new in the movie on the whole. The plot becomes weak when the entire police force in the area cannot handle 300 people in a village. Even the military which is brought in is not a highlight and turned silly.
All the production values are extraordinary and the visuals are amazing. Music is good but the BGM is a slight disappointment. Cinematography and editing are absolutely fine. Director Mohan’s narration is sincere and well defined. But the sequences related to the government handling the tribal people should have brought up in some more better manner.
- Technical Aspects
- Outdated story
- Lack of emotional connectivy
- Lack of depth in storyline
Overall, Itlu Maredumilli Prajannekam movie is a half-pie.
