Andaru Bagundali Andulo Nenundali is one noted film this week which is streaming on AHA. Read our review to find out if the film has any juice in it or not.
Selfie Sameer (Ali) is a social media freak. He loves posting stuff on Facebook and one fine day, he posts a man (Naresh) sleeping on a train in a funny manner. His post goes viral but in turn makes the life hell of Srinivasa Rao, who was sleeping. Things become so bad for the family man that he decides to take revenge on Sameer. How did he do that is the story.
Ali makes a comeback as hero and he shines in the role of Sameer. The way he gets tense in key scenes has been nicely showcased by the actor. But it is Naresh who is the main man and gets the best part. He as the one who goes through insults showcases superb form and is a treat to watch on the screen. Pavitra Lokesh also does well in her key role.
Andaru Bagundali Andulo Nenundali is the remake of the hit Malayalam film Vikruthi. But the same does not get transformed here. The film is based on the side effects of what happens when one uses social media for the wrong reason. Ali is the one who misuses it, and Naresh is the one who goes through hell due to this. This aspect is good, but it comes only at interval point.
Until then, what you get to see is boring stuff and routine drama and love episodes of Ali which are silly and over the top. Also, the conflict points and the manner in which it is unleashed is also not that impactful. In the original, the nativity factor and earthy character create a solid impact. the editing is pathetic and takes forever to finish the film.
In a way the film had a solid premise and was supposed to be emotional. So much is said in the first half and things get interesting in the last. But by this time, the film gets boring and over the top and inconvenient to watch.
Bottom Line – Fails to entertain
