Plot: Rarandoi Veduka Chuddam can be classified as a musical romantic family entertainer. The film starts with Nagarjuna’s background narration of the family conflict between Jagapathi Babu and Sampath Raj. We then have the lead actors meeting at a wedding and Shiva (Naga Chaitanya) falls head over heels for Bramarambha (Rakul Preet.) There are a host of telugu character actors introduced for comic relief.
The story then gets as cliched as it can. Bramarambha restraining herself and maintaining the ‘just friends’ tag when the duo are in Vizag (She is there for her MBA).There is an unexplained conflict between the two at interval point, which looks forced.
There is the usual, regressive tone to the movie when the lead actress finds out her family is getting her married. The hero now takes it upon himself to win his ladylove and reunite the families who are at conflict due to a misunderstanding.
Performances: As far as the performances go, there is nobody hitting a false note. The lead pair display exceptional chemistry. Naga Chaitanya shines in his massy avatar and Rakul Preet portrays the strange but lovable characteristics of Bramarambha with great ease. The supporting cast does extremely well with their comic scenes.
Verdict: One of the highlights of the film is the father son and father daughter relationship that is played out with immense amount of realness which makes it greatly relatable to the audience. One technical aspect worth a mention is that Annapurna Studios lives up to its reputation and doesn’t cut back on the production value of this film, which is consistently high all through. Another positive is the music by Devi Sri Prasad, the songs are beautifully shot and as we all know are a huge hit already. The music adds value to this otherwise mundane and over- done ‘boy meets girl, they fall in love but their families oppose’ routine.
