Sunil and Isha Chawla starrer Mr.Pellikoduku has hit the screens today and being Sunil’s film the audiences expect an out and out comedy entertainer. Director Devi Prasad has made changes to the script to suit the Telugu nativity. Let us see what impact director Devi Prasad makes with this remake of Bollywood hit Tanu Weds Manu.
The story begins with Buchi Babu (sunil) is an NRI who owns a boutique and comes to India on holiday and also to get married. ). His first ‘pelli choopulu’ is with Anjali (Isha Chawla), the daughter of Sugar Subbaraju (Ahuthi Prasad). Though everyone is fine, Anjlai has some issues and she is more of a tomboy. But Anjali reveals a shocking truth and displays her wild side. A shocked Buchi Babu drops the proposal and goes off in search of other potential bridegrooms. But he can never truly get Anjali out of his heart and mind.The story takes a turn when Buchi Babu goes to Kerala for attending a friend’s wedding and Anjali comes there. What happens after that, rest of the story on screens?
Sunil gave his best shot at what ever he did. Be it acting, dancing and fights. Isha Chawla failed to dish out the required glamor content. Many wondered what happened to her charm. Others like Ahuti Prrasad, Dharmavarapu Subramaniam, Ali, MS.Narayana tried their bit in entertaining viewers.
The film is the remake of the Bollywood movie ‘Tanu Weds Manu’ which was a big hit. However, it was clear that the remake was nowhere near the original due to its weak direction and screenplay. The first half is somewhat okay and sets an average experience. The second half is slow pace due to some unwanted scenes. Overall at the box office, this is likely to be a below average fare.
Isha chawla performance
Second half slow pace
Poorly scripted and lack depth.
Production values are good. Editing could have been better in the second half. Music of SA.Rajkumar failed to attract viewers.
