Allari Naresh, once known as the Minimum Guarantee Hero in Tollywood, later failed to succeed in that range. Naresh, who has been struggling with a series of flops recently, this time put the experiments aside and pushed the audience forward with his mark regular comedy. Nandamuri Balakrishna's crazy title 'Bangaru Bullodu' was released on Saturday (January 23) under the direction of Giri Palika (PV Giri) who hit a super hit with his debut film 'Nandini Nursing Home'.
The hype was created on the film as the film unit was very confident that the film would definitely have entertainment. Did Naresh succeed in providing more entertainment? Did Allari Naresh impress the audience with the crucial Bangaru Bullodu for his career? Did Allari Naresh get the expected success? Is this young hero again impressed by the move away from the minimum guarantee hero tag? Let's see in the review.
The Mavullamma Temple is very famous in the village of Sitanagaram. Whoever is unmarried goes to that temple and gets married immediately. But Bhavani Prasad (Allari Naresh) and his brothers, who live in the same town, are not married. Bhavani Prasad realizes that the reason is a mistake made by Bhavani Prasad's grandfather (Tanikella Bharani). Bhavani Prasad decides to correct his grandfather's mistake.
What problems did Bhavani Prasad face in this sequence? What was the mistake his grandfather had made so far? How did he fall in love with 'Kanaka Mahalakshmi' (Pooja Zaveri) in this sequence? What did she do for his love? What is the relationship of the Bhavani Prasad family to the Mavullamma jewelry in the village? The rest of the story is about how the grandson corrected the grandfather's mistake.
Naresh, who has a good image as a comedy star, once again came forward to the audience with his image-less comedy entertainer. Naresh impresses in the role of a bank employee who lends money by pawning gold jewelry. However, he followed the routine formula without showing much novelty. Naresh acted well in the scenes that came in order to correct the mistake made by the grandfather.
Heroine Pooja Jhaveri also seems to be okay in some places but embarrassed in some places. Also starring Satyam Rajesh, Prabhas Sreenu, and Praveen in other key roles, they performed well in some comedy scenes. Posani Krishna Murali, Tanikella Bharani, and Prithvi acted to their extent.
‘Bangaru Bullodu’... The film which came out in 1993 was the biggest hit in Balayya’s career. The movie starring Nandamuri Balakrishna, Ramya Krishna, and Raveena Tandon in the lead roles created a sensation at the time. However, after 23 years, Naresh came forward with the same title. With this, everyone expects it to be a hit like Balayya's movie.
As part of the promotions, Allari Naresh said, "All my films have comedy, there is no story, so this time I did this film with a story." With that, the expectations for this movie increased even more. But P.V Giri did not live up to the expectations of the audience. As mentioned the movie has a good story, emotion. But P.V Giri failed to balance that emotion with Allari Naresh.
Also, the unimpressive comedy is also a minus for this film. There is nothing new in the screenplay. Except for the climax part .. the whole movie is not that interesting. Sai Karthik's music is also not impressive. The song 'Swatilo Muthamanta' is a bit entertaining. The song was sung by SP Balu and Chitra at the time, so the young singers could not bring the original flavor.
However, this classic song was made to be remembered once. Satish Muthyala's cinematography is good. The rural atmosphere is well shown and the film brings that feel well. The editor had to say a bit of work to the scissors. The cinematography and production values are good throughout the story.
