Venkatadri Express

My Review:- 2.75/5


Genre: Romance - Comedy

Theatre watched : Eeshwar 70MM

Censor Rating : "U" 

Run time : 130 Min

Pre release Expectations :
"Venkatadri Express" trailer seemed effective and it felt like a comedy entertainer which involves a train journey...Sundeep Kishan and Rakul Preet Singh played the lead pair...Debutant 'Gandhi' directed this flick...Let's see to which extent it entertains???

Did it reach the expectations ???

My Review :- 
"Venkatadri Express" made a decent start but the pace slackened towards reaching the destination...On the whole a decent journey but the second half could have been made in a much more better way...!!!

Highlights:-
Sundeep Kishan did a good job and he maintained ease through out the movie.
Raku Preet Singh looked pretty.Though her role is limited,she did a fine job.
Thagubothu Ramesh and Sapthagiri excelled in their respective roles and took care of the whole comedy department.
First half is very pacy and entertaining with comedy sequences.
Good screenplay.
Cinematography is brilliant and he managed to use bright colors effectively.
No unnecessary songs and limited run time.
Brahmaji did a decent job as Sundeep's brother dying for marriage.
  
Disappointments:- 
Boring Second half is a big drawback.Director Gandhi failed to handle the movie as effectively as in first half.
Very predictable second half and routine climax.
That many fights are unnecessary for this type of movie and particularly for such type of hero's characterization.
Movie's Plot is very feeble.
M.S. Narayana failed to create an impact.
Editing can be far better as some of the sequences looked dragged.
Production values are mediocre.
Ramana Gogula's music is just average.

Engaging moments:-.   
Allari Naresh gave voice over for this movie in the beginning and is interesting.
Comedy scenes involving Sapthagiri are hilarious.

My
 verdict :- "Venkatadri Express" is an appreciable attempt made by debutant Gandhi...An Entertaining first half and a boring,predictable second half sums it up as an average fare...!!!

Film status at Box Office:-
Openings are average...!!!

Bottomline:- DECENT JOURNEY WITH SOME SPEED BREAKERS IN BETWEEN...!!!

Final verdict:-  Hit.
