(Do you want to make an impact with your content? Interested in writing Movie or Politics or General stories? contact us at [email protected])

Karthi a couple of months back scored a memorable hit with Khaidi which is both commercially hit and critically acclaimed. Now, Karthi is back again with another thriller this time laced with family emotions in the form of Donga. Promos are engaging. Let us see how the movie is.

Story:

Gnanamurthy (Satya Raj) is a political leader who along with his daughter Parvathy (Jyothika) are in search for their family member, Sharwa who runs away 15 years back. On the other hand, Vicky (Karthi) is happy go lucky guy who is a thief in Goa. One fine day, with the help of Police, Vicky enters Gnanamurthy’s house in the disguise of Sharwa. Soon Parvathy knows that Vicky is not Sharwa.

At the same time, few murder attempts on Vicky started to happen? What kind of consequences did Vicky face as Sharwa? Who is the original Sharwa? What happened to him forms the rest of the story.

Performances:

Karthi has given good performance as Vicky and Sharwa in the movie. There are many variations for Karthi in this movie like comedy, action, sentiment etc., and Karthi has done justice to all. Recently Karthi has given intense performance in Khaidi and it will be refreshing to see him in a light hearted character for some time. The next who scores brownie points after Karthi is definitely Satya Raj. He has given stand out performance. His combination scenes with Karthi came out really well. Jyothika disappoints. Not that her performance is bad, there is nothing much she does in the movie. Her character is wasted. Sowcar Janaki, Seetha has done justice to their characters. Rest all are okay.

Technical performances:

Just like his much talked film, director Jeetu Joseph came up with another simple line in Donga. Though his story line is simple, he made it interesting with enough twists and turns. His screen play is some what boring. The only thing is that director failed to bring in emotional connect to the audience. Songs are not so good but the background music is impressive. Production values are not up to the mark. We get the feeling that movie is made with limited budget. VS Vinayak’s editing is also not so good.

Analysis:

Donga has interesting family thriller premises. But the director failed in to bring in the required family connect which hinders the flow for the audience. Though the film is touted to be a thriller, except for few twists here and there, remaining part seems boring. Climax twist is unpredictable and it gives good feel to the audience. Performances of Karthi and Satyaraj, few action blocks and final twist are the main plus points for this family thriller. Rest all is a boring drama.

Finally: Donga – failed to steal the audience hearts

TeluguBulletin Rating: 2/5
