Movie : 3 Monkeys
Rating : 1.25/5
Director : Anil Kumar
Behind the Scenes:
TV Actors who have become popular with shows like Jabardasth and similar programs are trying to foray into films. Some of them have tried their hand in some films but without any luck. Now, a similar attempt is being made with a film titled ‘Three Monkeys’. Let us see how the movie releasing today will connect to the audience.
Santosh (Sudigali Sudheer), Phani (Getup Srinu), Anand (Ram Prasad) are childhood buddies and they are contented with whatever they have in their lives. But then, a twist occurs in their lives after Santosh gets into trouble in his personal life due to erectile dysfunction. They get a prostitute (Karunya) to check. An unexpected event happens then changing their lives. What happens next in their lives forms the rest of the story.
All three Jabardasth heroes have tried their best to bring in their specialty into the film. Sudigali Sudheer previously done a couple of films and is experienced of the lot. He looks better than the others. Even though they tried to entertain in their style, it looked like they are amateurish for films. Their emotional performances in the second half did not come out well. Karunya is okay in a little role. Shakalaka Shankar’s double meaning comedy did not work. The rest is not so relevant.
Director Anil Kumar is very disappointing, to say the least. His story is old and so was his narration. He banked only on slap-stick comedy and the image of the Jabardasth actors which did not work. The comedy is not funny and the emotional content also failed to work. The music has been disappointing while the camera work is just passable. The editing has been horrendous. The Production Values are poor.
There is hardly anything that works in 3 Monkeys. The comedy does not tickle your laughing bone and things go out of hand when the director tries to explore the emotional side. If you watch the film expecting Jabardasth kind of comedy, you would not even enjoy the bits and pieces as well. The movie may be tough even to watch in digital or Television.
