There is a custom for every Sankranthi that a family entertainer gets released. Nandamuri Kalyan Ram and team have promoted that their latest film Entha Manchivadavura is a perfect family entertainer for this festive season. Will Kalyan Ram live up to his expectations?
Balu (Kalyan Ram) is an orphan. Knowing the value of relationships, he starts a company All is Well Relatives Supplier. He becomes brother in one family, son in other, grandson for another. While this is going fine, he comes to act as Tanikella Bharani’s son. There he faces some unusual circumstances. He gets involved in a tussle with local sand mafia kingpin Ganga Raju (Rajeev Kanakala). On one occasion, Ganga Raju takes an oath to kill Balu at any cost. What happened to him? What happened to his company?
On Screen Stars
Nandamuri Kalyan Ram has done a decent job in this film. He tried hard to carry the film on his shoulders. There are lot of sentimental scenes in the movie and tried his best. He looked class and stylish. Mehreen Kaur is a total waste. She has no expressions in her face. Vennela Kishore is the only saving grace in the movie. Nellore Sudarshan is Okay. Rajiv Kanakala with the talent he possess could have done a better job. Talented artists like Tanikella Bharani, Suhasini, Sharath Babu, Vijay Kumar are wasted in this life less script.
Off Screen Talents
Technically the film brings mixed feelings. Cinematography is nice. Raj Thota has presented village atmosphere in a pleasing way. Art design is impressive too. Few action episodes designed by Venkat are good. Production values by Aditya Music are rich.
Surprisingly Gopi Sundar who generally gives out good music, fails big time with Entha Manchivadavura album. Not even one song registers in your mind. Back ground music is repetitive. Editor Thammiraju could have done a better job.
Satish Vegesna has taken the theme line from the film Oxygen. However the way it is presented in Entha Manchivadavura will not impress. Audiences couldn’t connect to the concept which in turn brings out sentimental scenes as a boring affair.
Kalyan Ram’s performance
Vennela Kishore few comedy scenes
Repeated emotional scenes
No entertainment whatsoever
Satish Vegesna is a national award-winning director with the film Shatamanam Bhavati. Though his last film Srinivasa Kalyanam is a flop, everyone expected Entha Manchivadavura to be a better film. But unfortunately, the film’s concept hasn’t been dealt well. Pace of the film is a big complaint and the overdosage of sentiment scenes couldn’t help the proceedings either. Entha Manchivadavura brings the feeling that serials are a lot better in terms of sentiment. Complete bore fest.
Immediate reaction at Intermission: Boring first half, emotional suppliers concept is not convincing. Kalyan Ram’s acting stands out.
Immediate reaction at end credits: More sentiment dosage. Director repeated the same point again and again. TV serial paced sentiment in climax.
Watch or Not?: Watch at your own risk. Better not.
Box Office Status: Though Sankranthi season might help to bring in openings. Entha Manchivadavura has very little to support for a box office hit.
