Nenu & Naa Boyfriends are fine – along with Nanna is not fine!

Plot:

Padmavathi (Hebah Patel) is an absolute dad’s pet and her father Raghava Rao (Rao Ramesh) sacrifices anything for his daughter. After completion of engineering, Paddu wishes to work and live independently in Hyderabad. Inspite of failing engineering, Raghava Rao procures everything to fulfill his darling daughter’s wish. To evade marriage, Paddu lies that she has been in love with someone and buys 6months time. On her friend Maggie’s (Tejaswi Madivada) advice, Paddu decides to turn her lie true but ends up falling in love with three guys Gokul (Noel), Nani (Ashwin) and Namo (Parvateesam). How did Paddu create problems for three of her boyfriends, her father and eventually herself form the rest of the story.

Performances:

Hebah Patel:
After Kumari 21F, this overnight star couldn’t display much versatility and this film is no exception. However this film shall not affect her mass image!
 
Tejaswi Madivada: Accompanying the heroine right from the first frame, Tejaswi appeals to be the heroine in disguise for this film, of course outshining Hebah!

While Noel, Ashwin & Parvateesam do complete justice to their respective roles, Ashwin & Parvateesam were the real entertainers.
.
Rao Ramesh: This exceptional actor especially ‘on screen father’ has just emotional dialogues but no meat in his character.

The rest of the comedy bandwagon including Shakalaka Shankar, Chammak Chandra & other noted Jabardasth artists were indeed the saviors of the film.


Analysis:


Looks like Hebah Patel in a bold character and an undercurrent “social message” are believed to be a new success mantra, especially after the success of Kumari 21FEarlier we have seen many comedy entertainers like Chilakkottudu etc where the hero flirts and romances three heroines etc and now the tables are turned!

Nanna Nenu Naa Boyfriends is a story that tries to be a convincing entertainer following a similar template. There is a girl who feels loving three men is fine, there is a father who can’t hurt his daughter no matter what and there are few new skits that desperately try to tickle our funny bone – nothing else praiseworthy in the writing!

Scenes, Dialogues, performances, comedy and cinematography are decent enough but the story by Sai Krishna, screenplay by Prasanna Kumar Bezawada and director Bhaskar Bandi’s treatment fail to impress. The first half is absolutely engaging & entertaining (too) which is apparently why you may want to sit for the second half. The director tries to continue the confusion drama and close it with a hilarious sequence (guess some just aren’t tired of mimicking the Antyakshari episode). Now this is further dragged with songs and the sentimental drama – imagine what it feels like!


However, a decent climax twist wakes you up (not for the kids though).


Merits:

- Performances of Ashwin, Parvateesam, Tejaswi Madivada & Rao Ramesh
- Comedy quotient especially in the first half
- Cinematography
- Editing

De-merits:

- Largely writing (mainly the Second half)


Music:
 
Music by Shekar Chandra fails to stay with you and so does the background score which mostly tries to fill up the blanks.

Others:

Raj Tarun's surprise at the end makes you feel better!

Verdict:

Nanna Nenu Naa Boyfriends fakes to be a new age love story with an emotional touch. But in reality it is a half-baked drama with an age old template and a series of new skits. On the whole, it turns out to be a one-time watch film with an engaging first half.
