Gunturodu Movie Review
GUNTURODU STORY : The flm is about Kanna, an angry young man of Guntur, who gets into trouble as the brother of his lady love wants him dead.
GUNTURODU REVIEW: True to the title and tagline of the movie, Gunturodu is about a hot headed guy named Kanna, from Guntur. His pampered upbringing has it's impact on his personality and this often lands him in one issue or the other. However, at a cliched turning point, a girl enters his life and what happens later is anyone's guess. A routine story that has nothing much to offer, one wonders what about it excited the cast and the crew.
Once, Kanna(Manoj) gets into a huge fight with a criminal lawyer called Seshu(Sampath). While an upset Seshu has thoughts of revenge, Kanna falls in love with the lawyer's only sister Amrita (Pragya Jaiswal). He pursues her and finally wins her heart and that's when our hero learns about her connection with Seshu. What next?
Gunturodu, apart from treading the regular formula Telugu movie path, does have a new angle - clash of two characters with similar attitudes. Manoj Manchu, with his excellent dialogue delivery and fights, manages to keep the audience interested. After a dull and predictable first half, the film picks up pace after interview and the plot thickens towards the climax.
What the film lacks, primarily, is a gripping narration. The characterisation of the main roles, also falls flat and by the end of first half, the story becomes very predictable. The movie also lacks a strong story line, and the screenplay is quite bumpy. The comedy track of the hero's friends doesn’t click. Except for the first song, sung by Vijay Yesudas, the music is also not worth remembering. The award winning actors like Kota Srinivasa Rao and Rao Ramesh are wasted in the movie. The ‘Kanche’ famous heroine Pragya Jaiswal is limited only to dances and a few non-performance oriented sequences.
The movie is made for the mass audience and heads up to those who can't stand explicit dialogues. Watch the movie if you are a Manoj Manchu's fan. For others, the movie can be disappointing.
