akkineni hero, sumanth has high hopes for his latest release, naruda donaruda. Remake of a hit Hindi movie Vicky Donor, this movie has hit the screens today. Let’s see if Sumanth gets the hit he so badly needs.
Reading: Naruda donaruda movie review
vicky(sumanth) is a young jobless woman who is not serious in life. one fine day, she meets dr. anjaneyulu(tanikella bharani), an infertility specialist who forces him to become a sperm donor.
at first, vicky hates this idea, but then she takes it for easy money. This is also the time when he falls in love with Ashima (Pallavi subhash) and marries her.
How will Vicky handle her life as a sperm donor? does ashima know about vicky’s profession? What problems does the couple face? that forms the rest of the story.
naruda donaruda becomes observable mainly due to tanikella bharani. the legendary actor does a very good job as dr. anjaneyulu. Bharani is not influenced by the original character and puts her own spin on his role. all the dialogues and mannerisms of him are pretty good.
sumanth does a decent job in his role and performs to the best of his ability. The confrontational comedy scenes between Sumanth and Bharani elicit decent laughs and are well crafted. Veteran comedic actress Lakshmi lands a meaty role after a long time.
The first half of the movie is okay and has some good moments. the climax of the movie is quite emotional and ends the movie well.
one of the biggest drawbacks of the film is that it is very noisy. the secondary characters are shown in a loud way that irritates the audience. the second half of the movie is completely rushed as the emotions don’t hit you at all until the climax.
yet another drawback is the choice of pallavi heroin subhash. the role of the heroine is quite crucial during the second half and an inexperienced actress like pallavi lets things down. the way her character is shown in a rush is also quite disappointing.
The second half is pretty bland and there aren’t many emotions to lift the movie. Vicky Donor clicked mainly because of the earthy feel and realistic characters that are completely missing from the movie.

Production values are good as the film is decently set. the background score during the climax is fine and elevates the movie well. the music is very disappointing as all the songs come as speed breakers. editing is average. the dialogues are very good and the lines written for bharani are quite clever.
referring to the director mallik ram, he has done a below average job with the film. his inexperience is clearly shown throughout the movie as he doesn’t handle the complex points of the movie well. the way he films his characters and makes them exaggerate goes against the movie to some extent.
Overall, naruda donaruda is definitely a bold attempt at sumanth. he needs to be credited for choosing a risky subject like this and the decisions of actors like him can move tollywood forward. But sadly for Sumanth, the storytelling is quite disappointing as the film suffers heavily from a lack of thrills and is strictly for adults only. If you completely forget about the original and get along with the bold content of the movie, you can give this movie a chance for Tanikella Bharani and the hilarious act of her.
