Krishnarjuna Yuddham, directed by Merlapka Gandhi, and starring Nani, Anupama Parameswaram, and Rukshar mir, is an entertaining movie, but there is not much to it except some funny scenes and a very charming central performance, that does much too elevate it. Nani play twins in the movie, and he plays two distinct characters, one who is a common guy, while the other is from a rock background. The two fall into romances, and the twisty plot reveals itself, as things go from comedy, to drama, and from romance to action. These are four very different tones and when its difficult to maintain one, the movie works well, but it flounder when it has to take everything and come with a cohesive whole.
The movie is loud, and oppressive at the viewer. It could have been a little shorter, but then again, the movie doesn’t have patience even for the viewer as it goes from different characters and scenes, forgetting what is happening along the way.
Still, that doesn’t mean that the movie is a failure. Because whatever its shortcomings, it is still pretty entertaining. Nani gives a very charming performance(s), and is convincing in playing both of the characters with ease, never seeming to be straining for the effect. The movie is well directed by Gandhi, with enough panache that it overcomes its other disadvantages. Go if you want to have a nice time, although the movie could be irritating for some people, and they should keep away, since it doesn’t have much to offer other than few laughs and some well performed scenes.
