Thadaka review

“Range depends on Summer Thadaka“

Posted: 10 May 2013-09:51 AM

Thadaka is a story of two brothers. Elder brother, Siva Rama Krishna (Sunil) is a timid guy and younger brother, Karthik (Naga Chaitanya) is daring and dashing. Siva Rama Krishna becomes a  police and faces problems with anti social elements, Kasi and Bagaa. Younger brother punishes the goons who cause problems for his big brother and wins accolades for his brother. How he does this and how these two brothers bond with each other forms the crux of the story.

Naga Chaitanya is seriously trying to make a mark for himself these days and is successful to some extent. He has put in decent efforts in fights, that will certainly make him closer to the mass image he is longing for. Sunil on the other side is at his natural ease. The first half portrays him more as a courage less person which gives him scope to showcase his forte, comedy. The second half revolves more around Sunil with so much of emphasis in portraying his transformation to a brave cop.

Tamannah and Andrea Jeremiah do not have any substance in the movie but have added the glam quotient required. Tamannah is dead drop gorgeous in the movie especially in the songs. Ashutosh Rana is powerful as villain. Brahmi is kewl as usual. Rama Prabha, Jaya Prakash Reddy managed some laughs. Srinivas Reddy is at his usual self and Vennela Kishore is wasted. Naga Babu comes in a little character as heroes' father

Dolly seems to be a good director but a bad screenplay writer. The movie is good in parts, while the entire scenes are woven together something seems to be missing. The hero elevation scenes and action sequences are all well executed. He had embedded more comedy in the film to please Telugu audience. But the lag in the narration is felt especially more in the second half. 

The songs in the album are par below average. The director depended more on the glam of Tamannah to make them appealing. She is damn hot especially in Mara o Mara and Subhanallah songs. The background score is very good in some places especially in the hero elevation scenes in the second half.

Arthur. A. Wilson's Cinematography is okay with not much of technique involved. The grading should have been more colorful. Senior Editor Goutham Raju's scissors should have been more sharper. Ram - Lakshman had composed some excellent fights which are nothing less than highlight for the movie.

The first half of the movie is high on comedy and the interval bang is well handled. The tempo drops drastically in the second half even with some very good scenes that lure the masses. The movie gets further slow in the preclimax sequences with climax being routine. However, the movie will enthrall mass audience especially the B,C Junta with some hero elevation scenes. A little more effort in screenplay and editing would have taken the movie to the next level. Totally, Chaitanya had scored a decent hit with Thadaka.
