Raj Tarun is one actor who made a highly impressive debut in Tollywood with Uyyala Jampala, and soon emerged into one of the most promising upcoming young actors. While the actor delivered a few successful films in the initial stages of his career, he has been facing a string of flops in recent times. He has now come up with a webseries, which marks his OTT debut, called Aha Naa Pellanta. Let’s see how that turned out to be.
The story is about Sinu, a boy who swears off of women forever. However, he decides to get married after a lot of deliberation. Fate has is it that the bride elopes on the day of their wedding. What happens after that and will Sinu ever get married forms the rest of the story.
Raj Tarun is good in his role, with his comedy timing being on point. He also looks perfect for the role, reminding one of his debut film Uyyala Jampala. It is safe to say that Aha Naa Pellanta is one of the best content that has been seen in recent times.
Shivani Rajasekhar is good in enough in her role, but at times falters a bit, especially in the emotional scenes, where the other actors on the screen easily dominate her.
The supporting cast, which includes Posani Krishna Murali, Amani, Harshavardhan, Getup Srinu, Thagubothu Ramesh, Dipali Sharma and Kritika Singh are also good enough in their roles and perform well within the given scope. Apart from that, they do not have much to do on screen.
The director, Sanjeev Reddy, has chosen a simple yet entertaining plot for the webseries. There’s not much convolution to the story and he sticks to the point and narrates it cleanly. Also, one cannot help but feel like the story and screenplay are being a bit lengthy more than necessary. Apart from that, Aha Naa Pellanta is a pretty decent affair.
The background score for the webseries is up to the mark, and flows with the scenes. The camera work by Nagesh Banell and Ashkar Ali is good as well. The production design is pretty good, with the series looking very niche. The editing could have been a lot more crisp, nevertheless.
- Plot line
- Raj Tarun
- Bit Lengthy
Verdict: On the whole, Aha Naa Pellanta may not be a core shaker, but it most certainly can be enjoyed the first time around. While it may not have a rewatch value, it makes for a decent entertainer which you can watch with your family when you’re all together.
