Hyderabad: Kondareddy Buruju, Mahesh Babu and Prakash Raj, combination is sure to make an average Telugu cine buff nostalgic of a sensational and monumental film in Telugu cinema, Okkadu. And after seeing the trailer of director Anil Ravipudi’s Sarileru Neekevvaru, one wonders if these ingredients will yet again manage success at the box office.
If the newly released trailer of the film is a sample of what we are to witness on the big screen, once the film hits cinema halls on January 11, then we are surely in for a treat.
While more often than not, a good trailer doesn’t ensure a great film, the thing about director Anil Ravipudi is that he has always found a balance between the doses of action and comedy, in a way that works very well. His past films are testimonies to that. The trailer does live up to the expectations of what to expect from the director’s film.
But more than anything, it unleashes one of the best sides of Mahesh Babu – his comical excellence – which filmmakers rarely bring out. The times we have seen the actor try out comedy on screen, it hardly ever fails, probably because it brings out the real personality of his! (For the uninitiated, Mahesh is known to be really witty and funny in real life).
In fact, Rashmika too seems to have tested her fun side in the film and it is to be seen how it will work. But she sure does add a dose of freshness.
The story appears to majorly revolve around a teacher, played by Vijaya Shanti who makes her much-talked-about comeback, and some politics that she becomes involved in because of her principles. The glimpses promise a mass entertainer to the core and one can’t wait to catch this flick on the screen!
