Pappu is a vain attempt at making some sort of comedy work somehow and like all half-hearted attempts, the movie goes meandering lacking focus.
Pappu ( Krishnudu) is a born loser with ill –luck tagging him like a curse. To compound his woes he falls in love with Radha ( Dipika) daughter of his boss (Banarjee). With a cinematic twist of the tale Radha is kidnapped. Ram ( Subbaraju), an ace crime-buster is assigned to rescue the kidnapped victim. With a queer turn of events, Pappu is roped in with Ram to unravel the kidnap mystery of Radha. The rest of the story is on predictable lines ending in an expected climax.
Krishnudu, somehow, overcomes his obese bulk and gives a bubbly and ebullient performance. Subbaraju gives a decent exposition of his role. Dipika fulfills the glamour part of the movie. All others go through their motions because of lack of clarity of their roles vis-à-vis the total story.
A raw plot with ill-conceived incidents makes the narration weak. The screenplay is mistook for presentation. To make a comedy-crime-thriller work, there should be either logical sequence in the narration or brash nonsense with punching dialogues and meaningless rib-tickling episodes. Technically the film is good.. But what is the use, when there is no content?
Pappu is a time-pass fare.
