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!
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 21F! Earlier 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).
- Performances of Ashwin, Parvateesam, Tejaswi Madivada & Rao Ramesh
- Comedy quotient especially in the first half
- Largely writing (mainly the Second half)
