The teasers and promos for tanu nenu created a decent buzz for the movie. Starring newcomer Santosh Shoban and Avika Gor, this movie has hit the screens today. let’s see how it is.
kiran (santosh shobhan) is a call center employee who hates american culture and nri. one fine day he meets keerthi (avika gor) and falls in love with her. As time passes, even Keerthi approves of her love and the couple spend happy times together.
On the other hand, Keerthi’s father (Ravi Babu) is a cunning man who only dreams of sending his daughter to America for a lot of money. the twist in the story comes when he decides to marry his daughter to an nri.
what will kiran do now? how will you prevent keerthi from going to the united states? why does kiran hate america? To find out the answers to these questions, you need to see the movie on the big screen.
santosh shobhan impresses with his debut film. the young actor shows good emotions and is also good in the comedy department. His dialogue delivery is clear and, if planned well, he can go a long way in his career.
avika gor is also good in the movie. her chemistry with santosh is decent as the couple looks quite convincing on screen. the first half of the movie is quite light-hearted with an interesting interval point.
the way youth friendship and nri relationships have been shown needs a special mention. Although Ravi Babu is good, his role was short lived.
one of the biggest drawbacks of the film was the lack of emotions during the second half. after concluding the first half with a rather interesting interval, the director foolishly lets the process go.
There are certain scenes and situations during the second half that are a big disappointment. also, the way ravi babu’s character ends and the emotions shown after that incident lacks maturity.
The entertainment value is slightly lower during the second part. tanu nenu will appeal only to young people and multiplexes.
sunny m r’s music is decent, as is his background score. written dialogues and performed satires on nri culture have been well written. the script is decent during the first half, but it falters slightly during the second part. the film’s production values are pretty good. Even though the film was made on a fairly small budget, the camera and art work make the film look quite rich.
referring to director ram mohan, he has done a pretty decent job for his debut film. he chooses a novel plot line and places it very well in the current times and situations. ram even manages to show a decent love story and draws good performances from the initial cast of him. but the only place he fails is in the second half, which is pretty lackluster. If he had been very careful with this part, the result would have been even better.
Overall, tanu nenu is a quirky love story that will primarily appeal to youngsters and multiplex audiences. the simple and clean content of the film and the impressive performances of the main couple are some of the assets. Having said that, the film is a bit underwhelmed due to a lackluster second half and ends up being a good watch this weekend.
