Movie: Nuvva Nena
Producer: Vamsikrishna Srinivas
Dr Nandini (Shriya) runs a nursing home in Hyderabad and Avinash (Allari Naresh) is a petty thief and pickpocket in Amalapuram. Chanti (Ali) is his assistant. Avinash was forced to run away to Hyderabad, when the local inspector starts chasing him. There, Avinash falls in love with the Nandini. At this juncture, Anand (Sharwanand) gets admitted in the nursing home for the cure of a phobia. Avinash finds that it is not a phobia, but he too is in love with the Nandini and trying to impress her. Even as both are fighting with each other for Nandini, Akubhai (Brahmanandam), a small-time goonda, enters in the middle claiming that he too is in love with the Nandini. From here, the story takes several twists and finally before the climax, Akubhai settles with Nandini’s nurse (Kovai Sarala). Avinash and Anand gets a shock of their life time with an information that Dr Nandini was about to marry another youth (Raja). The film ends with the entry of this character.
Allari Naresh was at his best, because he is used to this kind of roles in several of his films earlier. Moreover, he had good comedy timing and used to shoot one liner dialogues with ease. Though Sharwanand was not so ease at comedy, he gave an equally tough fight to Allari Naresh throughout the film. However, Ali had a full-length role and equally important role and shared the screen with Allari Naresh with equal time. Shriya did not have scope to perform in the film, but the director made use of her curvy body structure to highlight to appease the front-benchers. Her glamour and heavy exposure of waist and back would help the movie to become a commercial success. Brahmanandam was at his usual best and such kind of performance could be seen in many films. Kovai Sarala too did her best. The surprise entry is Raja while Vimala Raman’s item song is quite spicy. Other artistes like Srinivasa Reddy and Narsing Yadav did justice to their roles.
Screenplay and dialogues by Surya are apt and the one-liners penned for Allari Naresh got a good punch every time. Dasarathi Shivendra’s cinematography is okay while editing by Marthand K Venkatesh was crisp but sustained the humour. Music by Bheems were melodious though loud at times. Mani Sharma’s background score is at its best. The surprise is that the director did not prolong any of the scene but took the cinematic choice to jump from one scene to the other. He winded the story in just two hours without causing boredom to the audiences. Moreover the film has equal comedy in the first half and the second half. Though the fight between both the heroes in the second half tested the patience of the audiences, the film as a whole went on as a good entertainer. Production values of SVK Cinema are equally good.
Of course, the story of the film is run-of-the-mill subject and the audiences watched such films many a time. However, it is the director’s ability that made the audiences to sit tight to their seats, because of the comedy punch and the narration ability of the debutant director.
