Ram Pothineni is back again and this time, unlike his super energetic self, he’s making his way to screen in a cool and simple manner in Vunnadhi Okate Zindagi and the teasers and trailer of the film helped the movie to a decent buzz. The last venture of Ram with Friendship as the core plot failed miserably at the box office. Has he turned the tables now with this film? Let’s find out.
The story of the film is about two close friends and how a conflict in their life makes them part ways. How an unfortunate incident turns their life, how they get back together, where Anupama and Lavanya fit in all this drama forms the rest of the story.
Ram has delivered a balanced performance and does much better than his last effort in Hyper, Anupama Parameshwaran is good while Lavanya Tripati is strictly ok. Sri Vishnu has done his part very well and fits the bill perfectly. Rest of the crew is okay.
Songs and Background Music:
Songs of the film are decent and the picturization is great as well. What amma and Rayyi Rayyi are the picks of the album. Background music is good and the emotional scenes have been carried perfectly well with the music.
Direction, Screenplay and Dialogues
The film starts on a slow note and goes with some terrific dialogues and chemistry between Ram and Anupama in the first half. The story gets emotional in the second half and is a bit of let-down. Dilaogues are the major attraction of the film but the lacklustre screenplay spoils the fun a bit with a good and true story.
Cinematography is terrific in the film and every frame of the film is rich and pleasing to watch. Sameer has done an excellent job behind the lens and has used lighting to perfect lengths to make the film feel great on screen.
Production values from Sravanthi movies are excellent and the film is rich on screen. No major VFX was done for the film and the makers tried their best to show in the film in a realistic manner.
Overall, Vunnadhi Okate Zindagi is a true attempt and deals with a storyline which hasn’t been tampered with in the last few years. While dialogues and some decent performances add more weight to the movie, slow narration and lacklustre screenplay spoil the fun a bit.
You may watch it.
Idi Oka Emotional Zindagi.
