Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo Movie Review

Movie: Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo

Rating : 3/5

Director : Trivikram Srinivas

Behind the Scenes:

Stylish Star Allu Arjun bumped into an unexpected failure with his last film, Naa Peru Surya. That forced a break of around an year and the actor teamed up with his lucky charm director, Trivikram Srinivas for Ala Vaikunthapurramulo. Let us see how the movie is received by the audience.

Story:

Valmiki (Murali Sharma) swaps his son with his owner’s son immediately after their Birth. He raises Bantu (Allu Arjun) with the bitterness while is happy seeing his son (Sushanth) grow up in riches. However, Bantu later goes to the house to solve various issues faced by his real parents. What are those problems? What happens finally in their story forms the rest.

Performances:

Allu Arjun has come back to his comfort zone with Ala Vaikunthapurramulo. He is at ease as a middle class boy and performed equally well in comedy as well as emotional sequences. Pooja Hegde is beautiful especially in the songs but goes Missing in the Second half. Nivetha Pethuraj gets a trivial role. Murali Sharma is excellent as a Middle class selfish father. Sachin Khedkar and Jayaram are good. Tabu, Sushanth, Ajay, Samuthirakani, Sunil, and many others are wasted in Trivial Roles.

Technical Performances:

Trivikram had picked up a wafer thin story for Ala Vaikunthapurramulo. The storyline is similar to NTR’s Old Movie, Inti Guttu. The story is revealed in the opening scene itself and there are not many twists. But Trivikram drives his point home with subtle comedy, good dialogues, and super emotions. The movie flows well without any bore. Thaman has come up with excellent songs. Samajavargamana, Butta Bomma, and Ramulo Ramula also worked on the screen. Camera work is good and the Editing is okay. The Production Values are excellent.

Analysis:

The First Half of the film is good with a decent amount of humour. Unlike the usual Trivikram films, we get to see the comedy in a subtle way. The emotional touch during the interval is good. The second half is more about emotions. It starts off well and the Board Meeting Sequence is the major highlight. The climax of the film is a bit forced but does not pose a danger. Some of the scenes resemble Attarintiki Daredhi as well. Finally, Ala Vaikunthapurramulo is a good watch in the festive season especially for the Multiplex Crowd.

Movie Marks:

Allu Arjun Nannintiki Daaredi!
