Allu Sirish is making a comeback with Urvashivo Rakshashivo which was released in theatres today. The film is billed to be a youthful romantic comedy and here’s what we have to say about the same.

Story: Sirish and Anu Emmanuel are two polar-minded individuals working in an IT company. They grow a liking for each other and eventually bond physically. Sirish develops a deep love for Anu but she doesn’t reciprocate as she sees it as a casual relationship. One thing leads to another and they start a live-in relationship. How does a middle-class guy, Sirish cope with the live-in relationship with an American-born Anu? What happens later? The answers form the rest of the plot.

What about on-screen performances?

Sirish and Anu Emmanuel play roles that strike a chord with the younger generation of the audience. Sirish is kind of decent in his role. Anu looks beautiful on screen and she carries herself well. She is one of the few positives about the film.

The supporting cast consists of the likes of Vennela Kishore and Sunil. They are intended to serve comedy but there isn’t too much organic entertainment in either half. Amani, prudhvi, posani and other supporting cast are adequate in thier roles

What about off-screen talents?

The director Rakesh Shashi has narrated a simple youthful drama with contemporary relationships backdrop in a tiring manner. There isn’t much on the entertainment front in the first half. The drama track in the latter half is also below par and it gets tiring. The film has a run time of 2 and a half hours but we get the feeling that it’s three hours long due to the slow narration and unengaging screenplay.

The songs are below par. Barring Arere, no song has repeat value. The BGM is of middling quality. The production values are good, but this isn’t the kind of film that relies on making values, so they are inconsequential in the final product. The editing could’ve been better as there’s a lot of lag in the narration.

Positives

  • Anu Emmanuel
  • Comedy in parts
  • Some youth-appealing scenes

Negatives

  • Story/screenplay
  • Slow narration
  • Lack of good songs and effective BGM

Verdict: Anu Emmanuel is one of the few saving graces for the film as she delivers a fine performance. The contemporary relationships plot is presented in a slow and uninteresting manner with formulaic scenes. The film doesn’t excite the audience through the course of 150 minutes, which is a big no-no for a rom-com. As a whole, it is a below-par drama that has very few things going it’s way.
