Telugu audience always encourage dubbing films, and because of this we see one or the other dubbing film releasing every week. This week it is ‘Kulfi’ which is the Telugu version of the Tamil film, ‘Vadacurry’. ‘Journey’ fame Jai and Telugu girl Swathi are playing the lead roles. Directed by Sravana Rajan, this film also stars Bollywood hot actress Sunny Leone for a special song. Let’s see how this film is.
harish (jai) comes from a middle-class family and works as a medical representative. she has an old model cell phone that works strangely. Because of this, she faces many embarrassing moments on a daily basis. His friends tell him that girls fall in love with expensive cell phones and pressure him to change phones.
one fine day, he sees an abandoned i phone in a store and reluctantly picks it up. During this time, he meets Swathi (Swathi) and falls in love with her as well.
Harish’s brother, who is an honest car driver, asks him to return his phone. when he decides to return it he faces many problems. what those problems are and how he got out of the rest of the story.
jai, who made her telugu debut with ‘journey’, is getting better with each film. she gave a mature performance and did her role complete justice. she was impressive in both comedy and emotional scenes.
coming to swathi, she looks perfect in the role of girl next door with her cute and bubbly appearance. Although she doesn’t have a major role, she was awesome.
The hero’s friend, rj balaji, played his character well. his comedic timing and one-liners provide enough relief to the audience. the embarrassing moments faced by the hero at the beginning of the film are shown very well. Also in the second half, the way the hero deals with his problems is well represented.
The biggest disadvantage of the movie is that there are not many known Telugu actors except the hero and heroine. Even though this movie belongs to the comedy-thriller genre, there are no interesting scenes that could make the audience feel on the edge of their seats.
The first half is slow with all the normal scenes. a song spoils the fun in the second half as the movie picks up the pace. most of the movie is pretty predictable.
The actor who had rehearsed the character of the villain should have concentrated more on his expressions. Bollywood sex bomb sunny leone fans who come to see his bold moves will surely be disappointed as his song doesn’t have much in it.
technical aspects: the film’s cinematography is pretty good. visually, there are no extraordinary scenes in the film. the music is normal and so is the background score.
As for editing, the editor should have concentrated more on the first half and the last 30 minutes of the second half. the director sravana rajan, has made a good attempt with a good story, even though this is her first film. she wrote a good script but couldn’t present it interestingly on screen. verdict:
‘kulfi’ shows the problems we face when we want things that are beyond our reach. Except for some comedy and a few scenes in the second half, the rest of the movie is pretty normal and regular and makes it just a tedious watch.
