16 Days Movie Review
This is an idiotic film with unreal characters and a hotchpotch concoction of contrived situations assembled in disarray.
Yadagiri (Kota Srinivasa Rao) and Rami Reddy (Jayaprakash ) are goons with vicious rivalry. Reddy kills the son of Yadagiri and the latter vows to kill the former’s son in 16 days.
Gutthi Gurumurthy (Aravind) a migrant to the city gets a job and stays in the house of his relative who has gone underground unable to repay his loans.
Angel (Charmi) a loner, earns a living in the day and stays in the night in any house that have no occupants.
Through a ridiculously conceived coincidence, Angel meets Gurumurthy.
Through another equally idiotic coincidence, Gurumurthy is assigned the job of killing Rami Raddy’s son by Yadagiri.
The rest of the story is easily predictable.
Aravind has talent but his debut film is not worthy of it. Charmi, a Nandi Award winner, is wasted in this film. Kota and Jayaprakash are drab in their stereotyped roles. The less said about the other actors, the better.
This film has an illogical story with ill-conceived characters and illegitimate situations. The only redeeming feature is the
cinematography. No one can narrate a bad story in a good manner.
All the aspiring directors should watch this film to learn how not to make a stupid film.
16 Days gives you 16 different ways of molesting your senses, sensibilities and sensivities. Should the Censor Board be replaced by a Cinema Quality Control Board?
Even a trash can is sometimes useful to some rag pickers, but not 16 Days.
