Attarintiki Daredi is undoubtedly one of the most anticipated movies of the year. Despite the leaks and other hurdles, the film still managed to take a thumping opening at the ticket windows. Pawan Kalyan’s star power and Trivikram’s credibility along with successful music album helped the movie to take off to a wonderful start.
What is it about?
Gautam Nanda (Pawan Kalyan) is the only heir for 1 lakh crores worth property in Milan, Italy. His grandfather Raghunandan (Boman Irani) asks Gautham to unite him with his daughter (Nadhiya), who left him twenty five years ago. Gautham goes to India and enter into his aunt’s house as a driver. How does he achieve his aim is the rest of the story.
Pawan Kalyan is suave and stylish in this movie. He is at his handsome best in this movie and looked young in many frames. He underplayed his part well according to the requirements of the character. His teasing scenes with Samantha and comedic episodes with Ali and Brahmanandam are a treat to watch. His performance in the climax sequence is too good. Easily one of Pawan’s finest performances. Samantha is cute as usual. She didn’t get much footage in the first hour but has a nice role in the second hour. Praneetha is beautiful and she did her part well. Boman Irani is apt and Nadhiya is excellent in her role. Brahmanandam brings the house down in the second half. Ali is good. Rao Ramesh, Posani and others delivered decent performances.
Music by Devi Sri Prasad is good. All the songs are good on screen. Bapu gari Bommo and Kirrakku takes the cake. Background score is impressive. Cinematography is top notch. Editing is alright. The film drags a bit here and there and that should have been trimmed down. Dialogues written by Trivikram are just about okay. This is not his best work on any scale. He makes it up a bit with impressive dialogues in the climax scenes, but on a whole Trivikram does pretty average job as dialogue writer. He handled the script well with his able direction. It is a pretty simple script which has enough elements to keep the fans entertained and impress the families as well. If you are expecting some Gabbar Singh kind of masala you might be disappointed a bit. This film is a clean family entertainer.
Attarintiki Daredi doesn’t have a novel story. It is a simple story where the protagonist tries to unite his divided family. Trivikram made this film a complete package by using Pawan Kalyan’s star power. When a superstar like Pawan Kalyan plays the lead role in a family entertainer, only sky is the limit if you get it right. Trivikram excelled in doing so. He made sure that the film has every element that pleases the magnanimous fan base of Pawan Kalyan and also used his special skills as an actor.
You can see Pawan Kalyan in his elements in this film. He completely owned the role of Gautham Nanda and gave his best to it. He enjoyed every scene and that vibrant performance brings extra kick to the proceedings. First half of the film is smooth with nice comedy and few action bits. The graph starts to go up from the interval point with episode after episode pushing the movie to unimaginable heights.
Although the film has sentiment backdrop, Trivikram never lets it go in to emotional mode. Climax scene is a testament for Trivikram’s ability as writer and director. This film will be lapped up by families and they will watch it repeatedly. Except for the audience who crave for mass masala, Attarintiki Daredi will entertain everybody. Films like these are very rare to come and don’t miss the opportunity to watch it on big screen. Go grab your tickets, now!
Verdict: Power Packed Family Entertainer !
