Nikhil and Sarah Sharma have teamed up together for the movie ‘Disco’. Hari K Chaduri is the director of this movie and the film has been produced by Ramalinga Reddy and Abhinav Reddy jointly. The movie has released today so let us see how it is.
disco (nikhil) is an orphan and has three friends (khayyum, vijay sai and happy days paidithalli). he is a carefree guy who always gets his friends in trouble with his pranks and schemes. he falls in love with shiny (sara sharma) and travels to bangkok in search of her. Shiny is revealed to be the daughter of a local don (ashish vidyarthi) and things get more complicated from then on.
Just when disco seems to have won Shiny’s affections, the story takes a turn and now it’s about whether disco chooses love over friendship. what happens next? what will disco do to save his love? which forms the story.
m.s.narayana’s cameo as surya bhai is hilarious. The parody of Mahesh Babu’s character in The Businessman went well due to the brilliance of M.S. Narayana and is one of the few positive points in the film. ali is good in the role of him and enters only during the second half.
raghu babu tries to liven up the process, but is only partially successful. some skits on famous TV commercials are fine.
script and script are non-existent in this ‘movie’ and the narration is a mess. there is absolutely no logic to the proceedings and you literally start praying for something better to come. atrocious directing and poor performances from all the lead actors make the movie difficult to watch. Nikhil goes overboard and tries to imitate Pawan Kalyan and Ravi Teja, but it doesn’t work. his dialogues, fights and scenes do not fit with his image and market. sarah sharma is not hero material and one wonders how she was selected. her acting skills are practically non-existent.
the comedy is extremely cheap and most of the scenes don’t make you laugh. ashish vidyarthi is wasted on poorly engraved paper. the same goes for jeeva. the romance track is extremely shallow and there is no chemistry between the actors. people start to get sentimental and melodramatic for no reason from time to time. the story keeps moving in circles with silly “twists” in the second half and the narration will test the patience of the viewers. the movie is very long.
the climax is excruciating and there is no adequate explanation as to why ashish vidhyarthi has a sudden change of heart. there are so many other flaws in the film that cannot be listed here for reasons of time and space.
the re-recording work is very poor and this is especially evident during the songs. Anand’s music is not impressive. the edition is very bad and there is no fluidity in the procedures. dialogue is okay in places, but bad most of the time. the cinematography is fine.
Hari Chanduri’s direction is very bad.
disco is a movie that can be safely avoided. poor acting, poor direction and silly scenes will test the limits of your patience. the long runtime and goofy storytelling only make things worse. stay away from this movie unless you want to see something embarrassingly bad.
