What Is the Film About?
What happens when Padmavati’s plans to select one good groom among three potential candidates goes wrong?
How Is Hebah Patel’s Performance?
Hebah Patel is a scene stealer not because of her acting but because of her presence. She is lovely to look at throughout and manages to save few many mainly due to her bubbly act. She is also fabulous in the songs.
Direction By Bhaskar Bandi?
Director Bhaskar Bandi’s approach towards making the movie highlights the malice the films suffer from in Telugu cinema story. Take a convoluted storyline and confuse the audience with a sentiment that has no real emotional connect. In between the establishment of story and characters and the climax, fill the film with comedy blocks.
This approach appears so formulaic and extremely predictable in Nanna Nenu Na Boyfriends. It feels as if the film is going on and on with no end in sight. The only purpose here seems to be to entertain the audience with comedy skits. One is simply not drawn towards any character. Thankfully Rao Ramesh manages to bring some sanity to the proceedings. It is purely thanks to him, the film ends on a slightly tolerable note. The beginning and end, thanks to the actor is passable. The rest is junk. It tries too hard to be funny but falls flat most of the time.
Ashwin, Noel, Tejaswi and Others?
Ashwin, Noel, and Parvateesam play the roles of boyfriends in the movie. they are cast perfectly and do what they are given with good effect on screen. Among them, Parvateesam’s character looks somewhat difficult to pull off and he has done a fairly decent job.
Music and other departments?
Music by Sekhar Chandra is passable. The background score is alright. Editing is very neatly done, there not much of lag. The cinematography is okay. The movie is overwritten and the dialogues feel lengthy and lack emotional depth.
Entertainment in parts
Everything between start and end
To create a different characterization, the film loses the basic morality of character. When that is done the makers should have gone the whole yard with such morally questionable character. That would have been a far more interesting premise.
Did I Enjoy It?
Very few parts.
