Alludu Seenu Reviewby MyMazaa.com
Alludu Seenu (Bellamkonda Sreenivas) and his uncle Narasimha (Prakash Raj) live their lives by cheating and manipulating people around them. They plan to escape Chennai from Badami and end up in Hyderabad accidentally. Seenu comes across local don Bhai (Prakash Raj) and is shocked to see him look alike his uncle Narasimha. With the help of Bhai’s PA Dimple (Brahmanandam), Seenu sketches a plan to mint money by replacing Bhai with Narasimha. In the process he falls in love with Bhai daughter Anjali (Samantha) and gets to know Narasimha’s past. What is Narasimha’s past? Will Seenu win Anjali’s love is the rest of the story.
Bellamkonda Sreenivas made his debut and he has been trained well in dances. He shows his grace and ease in dances and action scenes. He needs to still better himself in dialogue delivery and expressions. However, as a debutant Sai Srinivas has scored well.
Samantha is gorgeous and has done a glam role in the movie. She is ultra glamorous in the songs. She has nothing much interms of role but has done good job in the limited scope. Tamanna sizzled in a special item song which is a treat for masses.
Prakash Raj impresses in dual roles. Brahmanandam is hilarious as Dimple and Pradeep Rawat is just okay. Tanikella Bharini, Raghu Babu, Vennala Kishore, Ravi Babu and others fill the screens in the limited roles offered.
Devi Sri Prasad’s musical scores are peppy and energetic and the songs have been shot well. However, the songs placement could have been better without hindering the flow. Chota K Naidu impresses with his camerawork. VV Vinayak does justice handling the commercial mass entertainer. Kona Venkat penned dialogues are rhyming. Editing could have been crisp. Action choreography is okay. Production values of Sri Lakshmi Narasimha Productions are lavish.
Alludu Seenu is a routine story told in a predictable way with right mix of comedy, action, romance and glamour. The revenge drama gets into predictable mode once the twists gets revealed and remind us of several other Telugu movies including Gudumba Shankar, Aadi, Ready, Baadshah, Aata etc.
VV Vinayak played it safe with a tailor-made launch pad movie for Sai Srinivas to showcase his dance and acting prowess packing it with comedy rather than opting for any experiment subjects. Besides Samanatha’s glamour quotient, Brahmanandam is major asset for the movie making Alludu Seenu work for its comedy despite the situations is inane.
The second half gets passable with Brahmanandam’s comedy portions. However, few of the portions could have been trimmed in the latter half as there are too many action scenes and songs.
