What is bad:
The story and the screenplay of the film are such that it’s hard to either empathize or sympathize with the characters. It’s also one of the most predictable films made in the recent times. So predictable is the film that leave alone a scene, you can actually predict some of the dialogues. Moreover, the characterization of almost everyone is just too shallow and this lack of depth makes each one of them even more predictable. After a promising start, the film slips into a serious mode in the second half. It would have been a lot nicer if the conflict resolution had more conviction. Everything is resolved in a matter of two minutes or two dialogues. If only real life was this simple!
The story written by Raj, DK is alright although it’s too predictable. Most of the film has been shot in Vizag near the seashore and cinematographer, Ranganath Babu does a good job. Mahesh Shankar’s music is decent and the classical touch he rendered for few scenes featuring Richa and Rao Ramesh is awesome. Nagaraju Gandham’s dialogues are alright and he hits a crescendo when it comes to comic lines. Krishna Reddy’s editing is good. Suman Pathuri, who made his debut as a director, does a decent job in narrating a simple story without any excessive drama. He pulls it off pretty well when the story has comic overtones; however, it’s a different story altogether when it comes to sentiment.
‘Inkosaari’ is not a bad film at all. It’s one of those ‘feel-good’ films which try to be mushy at times. It’s a decent debut for Suman Pathuri as a director. Don’t forget, he’s 23 years old and that’s a rarity! The film works when it doesn’t take itself seriously. However, the humour itself gets repetitive and sometimes irritating because it tries so hard to make you laugh. The film goes terribly haywire when it gets into a serious mode and some of those issues are resolved in a flimsy manner. In the end, a strong overdose of cheesy and at times pointless holidaying spoils the fun that we were promised. Maybe too much of goodness with cheesiness is injurious to health, sometimes.
