Avunanna Kaadanna

You cannot help marvel at Teja's mental tenacity. He has received so much flak in the last one month or so that it would have been impossible for anyone to concentrate on things at hand.

But Teja seems to have managed not only that. But also has come up a decent film.

Though the story and treatment of Avunanna Kadhanna is on Teja's well-established style, surprisingly it seems to work.

And in Uday Kiran, Teja has an able ally who comes up with an inspired and impressive performance.

Ravi (Uday Kiran) is a simple-minded youth with a serious mission to accomplish. He wants to get back his family land usurped by Mangaraju (Pilla Prasad) who lives in the neighboring village.

Ravi goes there and gets into the good book of Mangaraju and gets 5 acres of land from him. Ravi begins farming there and also falls in love with Aravinda (Sada).

And what is the twist here? Well,she is the grand daughter of Mangaraju. Now the villain  turns a real villain and goes out to separate the lovers. The rest of the story is you know what.

Set in rural milieu, the film captures the ambience and spirit pretty well. Despite the no-surprises story, the film manages to keep you interested with some engrossing turns.

Of course, Uday's acting, which is decidedly first rate, adds to it. Uday, as hard working as ever, has given one of his best performances till date. He gets the intricacies of the emotions and is stylish and believable in romantic sequences.

Sada is also acceptable as the energetic village lass.Teja always seems to get the best out of his wards. This film is a good example of that.

Pilla Prasad as the arch villain brings the right expressions on his face. Though his dialogues seem too loud and over the top.

Dharmavarapu Subramanyam's comedy does evoke guffaws and others in the cast also pass muster.

R P Patnaik's music is very good, especially for the songs. Though they have a ring of heard-before feel,the essentail melody is good.

Sameer Reddy's camera work is from the top drawer and other technical aspects also seem okay.

Teja has to be appreciated for his stead fastness and perseverance.

Though the film is not the most original, it carries Teja's stamp allthrough.

Rating: 0 / 5.0
