Performances: The performances in the film has major issues with the dubbing part, none of the actors other than Thagubothu Ramesh has perfect lip sync with the scene. Arvind Krishna (“Its my love story” fame) did a decent job as a software employee and a lover boy. However his bland look didn’t suit his characterization. He looks relatively better compared to his earlier films. Dimple Chopde is very pretty in this film. Vennala Kishore did as a pal of Arvind, he performed reasonably well. Important scenes between Arvind & Vennala Kishore miss the connection. Thagubothu Ramesh is the major asset of the movie. He adds much needed fun to the movie. Ali is okay in his don character. His look is somehow similar to Jr.NTR look in Baadshah. Ajay & Raghu Raju are okay in their casual roles.
Technicalities: The basic story line of the film is very simple, certain part of the film remind us of typical Telugu storylines. Director Anil Gopi Reddy Vykuntapali fame tried hard to make an impression on the mindset of the audience as a crime-comedy. However, Anil couldn’t sustain the flow of the narration in the film. Screenplay of the film is flat and its drops the tempo of the film gradually. Dialogues in the film are routine. Movie missed the crime logics in the films for example; Arvind – Kishore go to Villain’s place to receive the blackmail amount. Music by Anil are okay. Background music of the film is loud. Cinematography of the film is neat. The lighting effects in the second half complement the mood of the film. Editing of the film should have been crispier. Though the film is 125 minutes time, looks a bit long for its storyline. Production values of the film are good.
Critique: the basic plot of youth taking quick decision to get over their problems. This is a decent point. The Director failed to create the impact of that using comedy & romance. The narrative rambles from the basic objective in the end. The first half of the film is dragged takes long time to establish small things between lead characters. Second half is slow to narrate the rest of the storyline in an exciting way. Over all, Insipid Screenplay, poor technique mars Bisket.
Survi Review: 1/5
