Pressure Cooker which is made on a small budget has impressed everyone with its trailer. The movie has an universal connect point of parents forcing their kids to go and settle in US. Let us see how the movie is.
What about story ?
Narasimha Rao’s only ambition in life about his son Kishore (Sai Ronak) is to send his son to US. After many failed attempts, Kishore finally comes to Hyderabad and settles in a job. He falls in love with Anitha (Preeti Asrani). However Kishore gets visa through his job. What he will do? Will he choose his Dad’s dream or will he sacrifice his dad’s dream for love forms the rest of story.
How about On-Screen Stars performance ?
Preeti Asrani who played child artist role in Malli Rava is the heroine in this flick. She has given best performance. Her expressions in love scenes are simply superb. Sai Ronak is impressive in a confused guy role. He could have done better in emotional scenes. Tanikella Bharani’s role is good. Rahul Ramakrishna – Rajai Rovan roles failed to evoke laughs.
How about off Screen Talents ?
Cinematography is excellent. Visuals in love track gives good feel. Harshavardhan Rameshwar back ground music is good. Rahul Sipligunj, Sunil Kashyap, Smaran has given music for the film and they are impressive. Editing is fine in parts but jump cuts here and there will give negative feeling. Movie’s pace is the biggest minus for the film. We get a feeling that movie is not progressing at all. Dialogues haven’t been effective at all. Sujoy – Sushil has directed this film. Though their point is good, it has been dealt before in films like Shatamanam Bhavati and Pratiroju Pandage. Movie is serious at times. Production values are good.
What’s Hot ?
– Preeti Asrani performance
– Emotional scenes in second half
What’s Not ?
– Slow Narration
– Point taken is not so new.. Similar concept is dealt in recently released Pratiroju Pandage
– Boring narration
– Characters not etched properly
– Weak Climax
Pressure Cooker which impressed with its trailer comes up with a good point but the narration is not so impressive. Barring artists performance and few emotional scenes there is nothing much in this movie to offer. You can’t bear this 134 minutes at all.
Immediate reaction at Intermission: Finally relieved with intermission after getting tortured
Immediate reaction at end credits: Good Point but haven’t we watched the same point in better output films before?
Watch or Not?: Yes for parents who force their kids to send US
Box Office Status:
Pressure Cooker has impressed with its theatrical trailer. It is made in a small budget too. But it is releasing in competition with a big film. It might hinder the collections in full run. The movie’s end result might not be satisfactory.
