We know Director G Nageswar Reddy is adept at mass comedy entertainers with some story in it. Perhaps for the first time, he had to ace a test with a remake like Current Theega.
With its premise rooted in a village and all the possible amusing characters you can find in a village, Current Theega is crafted as a jolly romantic ride. Though this remake does not differ much from the original Varuthapadatha Valibar Sangam, it however misses to make the significance of the ‘VIP Sangham’ felt. Nageswar Reddy was successful in working out the comedy and getting the act right! He just maintained the momentum ensuring the dosage of commercial entertainment is always intact especially in the first half. Nonetheless to say, he could not make the love story tugging enough!
First Half: It was a joy ride predominantly with the Sunny factor, the Rakul’s glamor, the amusing comedy and the high voltage action. The rain fight is the key highlight in the segment.
Interval: This is quite predictable but engaging enough to wait for the second half.
Second Half: This segment experiences a slight voltage drop but bounces back with the light-hearted climax. Manoj and Jagapathi Babu’s performances the key highlights in the segment.
