Mass Maharaja Ravi Teja’s upcoming film ‘Nippu’ will be hitting screens worldwide on the 17th of February on the occasion of Maha Shivratri. Directed by talented filmmaker Gunasekhar, ‘Nippu’ is a romantic action entertainer. Renowned producer YVS Chowdary is producing the film on Bommarilluvari Banner. Deeksha Seth is heroine, and Rajendra Prasad will appear in a key role. Let’s check out the review for more details….


Suriya (Raviteja) and Sriram (Sriram) are close friends. Sriram confronts death sentence in Saudi Arabia, as they believe that he has killed his lover Vaishnavi (Bhavana). Vaishnavi accidentally dies by falling from the roof top. He has to get a letter from Vaishnavi’s parents to save his friend from death sentence. Did Suriya get the letter signed? Did Pradeep Rawath forgive Sriram for her daughter’s death? Such forms the rest of the story-line.


Raviteja had given an energetic performance. Again, His character does not have enough range to bring out melodramatic skills. Deeksha Seth was decent in her character; she played the role with lots of ease. Pradeep Rawat and Mukul Dev were quite regular with their negative shaded characters. Sriram was good in his role. Much hyped Dr. Rajendra Prasad role was very small, though he did not have good footage. Kalpika, Bhavana and rest of the cast was okay.

Technical Aspects:

If someone needs to be applaused in technical side, its cinematographer Sarvesh Murari, who given the soul to the movie with his cinematography.. Thaman has set some standards for his music and unfortunately the music in this film is not up to the expectations. ” Nena Ninnu” got good response, as it’s the only situational song in this film. “Vega Vega” song is also good. Back Ground Music is decent. Screenplay of the movie biggest drawback. Fights were not realistic, and reminded me movies like Vijendra Verma etc. Director Gunasekhar who earlier given successful films like Okkadu, Manoharam, Chudalani Undi… Etc in the past could not repeat the magic as he could not capture the soul of the movie. He failed in narrating the story in a decent manner. Dialogues were good in parts. Editing is worst. Production values were good.

Illogical Scenes:

  • How Hero and Mukul dev comes with Dry Cleaned Dress to the auction place. When they were hit by villain car and which coincidentally falls into the Pond.
  • How Raviteja removes Bullets from Pistol Magazine in split of a second time.
  • Till now I didn’t understand how did two cars fly in air when they were hit by a group of OX.
  • Raviteja, Deeksha Seth jumping on series of container trucks with bike, just recalled me a scene in Vijendraverma.

Survi Verdict:

The first half of the film is slow with some decent comedy scenes though those scenes reduce the seriousness and impact of the film. Second half builds up the pace for mass elements. Again those mass elements are not impressive enough too replete the audience. On the whole, Nippu doesn’t offer anything good, and disappoints whole time.

Bottom Line: Nippu a sort of inspired from Nagesh Kukunoor’s Dor (2006).
