Allari Naresh Latest Movie Sudigaadu - Comedy Entertainer Review - EVV Productions

Plus Points :

Allari Naresh is outstanding in the role of Shiva. He uses his comedy timing to great effect and he keeps the fun factor in the film going right till the end. This is one of his best performancesto date. Monal Gajjar is ok.

Jayaprakash Reddy, Shayaji Shinde, Krishna Bhagawan and M.S.Narayana do a good job and they manage to make the viewers laugh. Brahmanandam is good as Jaffa Reddy. Hema and Kovai Sarala are alright. Srinivas Reddy entertains in a role that is a satire on the Siddha character from Khaleja. Fish Venkat and Raghu Babu entertain briefly.

The strength of the film lies in brilliantly conceived spoofs on all the biggest hits of the industry. The spoofs have been done in a good natured way without malice and they will be enjoyed by everyone.

Two spoofs stand out for their brilliance – One on TV Anchor Omkar and the other on the custom of Thigh Slapping (thoda kottadam). The spoof on Omkar in particular had crowds rolling in their seats with laughter. Posani Krishna Murali adds great fun to that sequence.

The film moves with good pace most of the time and nice comedy keeps the viewers entertained. Bheemaneni Srinivasa Rao succeeded in integrating the comedy cleverly into the narrative.

Minus Points :

Climax is a letdown for the movie. Humour quotient and entertainment factor dip considerably in the one scene that should have been a highlight. The court episode should have been better conceived. Also, the final twist in the film did not pan out the way it was intended. Until the climax, I was having great fun but the poor ending spoiled the experience a little for me.

Songs are another minus point. Except for the opening song, none of them are really entertaining. They serve as speedbreakers. Romantic track between Naresh and Monal Gajjar could have been better.

The second half, especially towards the end, suffers from a slight dip in pace. Kondavalasa and L.B.Sriram look out of place in their characters.

Technical Aspects :

Cinematography is decent. Dialogues are brilliant and deserve special mention. They have been written in a very entertaining fashion. Sri Vasanth’s music is just about passable. Editing is decent but it could have been sharper in the second half.

Bheemaneni Srinivasa Rao succeeds in making the film entertaining right till the very end. He should have taken more care with respect to the climax. Production values are good.

Verdict :

Sudigaadu is a good clean entertainer that will make you laugh out loud. The spoofs are brilliant and like I said, the one on Omkar is not to be missed. Allari Naresh proves yet again that he is indeed the Comedy King. A badly executed climax spoils an otherwise solidly entertaining film. Still, Sudigaadu is one very enjoyable spoof on TFI and it makes for a good watch this weekend. Don’t miss it.
