Out of the two heroines who ends up with Krishna? It is sad to see such a lame film from the banner that has offered some memorable movies in the last decade. Hero making heroine fall for him in just three days seems illogical, unbelievable and also fails to create necessary emotional depth. You may have your reasons, but the audience expects someone portraying that role to rise to the occasion and showcase the powerhouse Bunny. Here's the ubiquitous Athadu touch. You know the answer, right. They feel that formula sells. All fall into place in a formulaic way.
Some love type of tamasha and he's on his way to India. He should stick to his strengths rather trying hard to impress as a so called commercial movie star. You know the answer, right. However, they forgot that you need a formula to sell a formula. This would have been excusable if it is told in an entertaining way or if the emotional buttons are played right.
To sum up, movies is just a routine and below average attempt. If I write a line about the story the intelligent readers can join all the strings to weave the screenplay till the end. Such is the cliched storyline and the formulaic scenes it is filled with. . That's why Dil Raju himself has given 3. The romantic episodes shot in Europe are laughable.
Despite some funny moments here and there, watching this family entertainer is a painful experience on a whole. Now he reaches India, and people start attacking him. The glaring plot holes aren't pushing me to take a plunge at giving it out. But Krishnashtami takes the cake. It seems like the writing team wanted to take a scene from each of the big hits in the recent past and make a movie of it. Living up to the name of a commercial entertainer, the films makes sure that it will make audiences laugh, but will not give any new experience.
Exactly fifteen minutes into the movie, you can easily guess where this movie is heading to and how exactly it is going to end. This is the best joke, something not found in the film! However, some comedy scenes in first half and second half have saved the film to certain extent. Second half starts with Sunil assessing what is what and who is who. What does Krishna have for them? Can we blame on some heavy dose of Kaho Na Pyar Hai. Now with that his character became more subdued and the vivaciousness and uber cool over-the-board chuckles he used to bring to the table goes missing. This is someone akin to Amrish Puri's character from Pardes. This half ends in half interesting way and creates the necessary excitement to watch second half.
Sunil's obsession with commercial films isn't going to help him in longer run. We have seen many films with simple template of mass movies. But as they fate has it, every time he tries hard, the universe tries to stop him from setting his foot on the Indian soil. What are the goons up for? He tries his best to know why they tried to kill them. Do I need to reveal the rest of the story? Here there's something with his identity and the film wears a tinge of a crime drama. Then without anybody's notice he moves out of the country and in a cosmic twist he gets held in a country due to a flight delay name it on the Ishq Telugu types and chances upon Heroine 1.
And Brahmanandam enters here as a Bakra. There were few eternal questions looming everyone. This must have been written by Kona Venkat, even though he is not credited. By mixing so many stories, Dil Raju made nice decoction of a new story, but actually audiences know every single frame of it. Now Krishna reaches some village and gets on with a disguise of the co-passenger. After the rant, now quickly I will do away with the plot. But they ended up writing what we have seen already.
Movie begins with the design of a game by Sunil and his family deciding to fix his marriage followed by hero introduction bike chase and some heroic dialogues. But the film's second half would have been better to make it an interesting watch. He solve all his problems and goes his home safely. Don't worry; we have Heroine 2 falling head over heels for Krishna. So, why are we here? En route meets a co-passenger let's keep this for some twist.
Such sloppy scenes come further in the second half especially when the entire cast members of the movie land in Goa to have pleasure and find meaning of life! I write and you read. Krishnashtami is an Telugu film written and directed by Vasu Varma and produced by Dil Raju under Sri Venkateswara Creations. . . .
