Following the latest trend of Malayalam remakes here is another romantic drama, which is Tollywood version of the Malayalam film “Ordinary” released years back in 2012. Looking at its promos, I did have my doubts about “Right Right” but after watching it I was seriously thinking that, what they really found in the original, which forced them to remake it in Telugu?
As a result, following the age old tradition of Tollywood (Where in the makers try to en-cash what ever gets successful at BO in any form), here comes a film completely runs in the background of RTC and Gaviti a beautiful remote village which is actually not yet explored by Tourism department. Now no doubt, it was a nice idea to tap all those feel good moments in a film roped around concerned villagers. But its Telugu treatment and performances from cast in the film, this becomes the real spoilsport here.
This is Sumanth Ashwin’s second Malayalam remake; earlier Chakkiligintha (2014) was official remake of Malayalam film “Doctor Love”.
Supposed to be a romantic drama with all those emotional ingredients, “Right Right” fails at almost all levels due to its amateurish kind of execution of some over used subplots. Actually it keeps hanging between drama and romantic but in the end comes out to be neither of the two with a big imbalance in its various sequences. There is nothing happening in the script resulting in boredom, which overshadows the important “M” issue in the film in an awful manner. In short debutant director Manu makes a big mess of remake idea and misses mark by a large margin.
In other terms, a certain section of audience could like the later part of the film due to a sudden event. But unfortunately, the initial part of the film is so childish that one loses the courage to watch the rest of it, right in the start. The camera work by Sekhar K Joseph, music by JB are pretty fine and even the movies main theme are not properly handled by the film maker.
Performances wise, Sumanth Ashwin looks a bit young for this role, but he performs his character with full spirit along with being a bit over the top at emotional sequences. “Baahubali” Prabhakar once again excels as tough looking soft hearted guy. Pooja Jhaveri looks good in her limited character. Nassar, Pavan Gangireddy, Vinodh, Thagubothu Ramesh, Dhanraj, Shakalaka Shankar, Jayavani and Rajyalakshmi are just there as the supporting cast and nothing else.
Right Right remains a completely mis-directed venture made with some fine intentions which sadly are not visible on the screen due to its weak script and execution. All in all , “Right Right” is simply not worth watching, even if you have got some hours to spare.
Survi Review: 1/5
