Prati Roju Pandage movie review
Sai Dharam Tej and Raahsi Khanna starrer Prati Roju Pandage movie is released today. Maruthi is the director of the movie and he is pretty focused on the success of this movie as his last film Sailaja Reddy Alludu movie has disappointed the audience. Let’s see if Maruthi got what he wants.Plot:
Prati Roju Pandage is the story of Raghuramayya (Satyaraj), who is diagnosed with terminal lung cancer and he has no more than five months to live. Then enters the grandson of Raghuramayya- Sai (Sai Dharam Tej), who intends to fill the last days of his old man with nothing but happiness. The whole family of Raghuramayya who is settled in foreign will come to India to be with him in his last days but that is not a selfless deed they do. How this tale ends is the plot of the movie.
Maruthi is known for his comedy timing and his best movies are comedy entertainers. This time, he played his strong cards in Prati Roju Pandage but the mistake he made is he opened the movie as an emotional one. The family of an old countryman comes from abroad to spend time with him in his last days- this is the single line of the movie and the hero in this film has only one motive and that is to justify the title and make every day a festival to his granddad. This can be dealt with in a completely emotional manner and at the same time in an entertaining way, but Maruthi chose to put entertainment ahead of emotion and hence it wouldn’t make a strong movie but sure a good entertainer. Maruthi has different and novel thoughts when it comes to implementing comedy scenes and some such fashion is there in this movie that is hilarious. The character of Rao Ramesh is the biggest asset of the movie and his character portrayal stuns everyone and once again proves that he is a versatile performer. As mentioned earlier, the comedy phase in the movie is decent and hilarious at times but even though the film happens in a village setting filled with family atmosphere and an emotional storyline, the film misses a soul and the only reason as to why that happened is because the director did not plan to highlight the emotion in the film significantly as much as he did with comedy.
Rao Ramesh steals the show for sure as his character presents himself in several shades and each one of them is entertaining. Sai Dharam Tej did a good job but this is not a role he can excel in as the character penned in the story is an underdog. Raashi Khanna’s character is introduced with a hilarious bang and her screen time slows fades as the film heads forward. Sathyaraj did his best for the role.Technical departments:
Thaman did a wonderful job with the scores and songs. He easily sets up the tone of the movie. The production values and camera work are decent, most importantly perfect for the background the film is set in.
Surely the best entertainer of this weekend.
