Youthful entertainers have been a part and parcel in Tollywood recently. This week, yet another small budget film, Green Signal has hit the screens. Directed by Vijay Maddhala, this film has a mix of new comers playing the lead roles. Let’s now see how the film is.
This film has a simple story line of how a young bunch of four friends, who are successful and happy enjoying their bachelor hood get their lives tossed up after they fall in love.
Each one of them meets his respective girlfriends, and what happens to them once they start dating and spending time with each other. Will they end up happy in love, or fall neck deep into problems after these girls enter their life.
For all these answers you need to watch this film on big screen.
All the actors who did the leading roles have performed well. Revanth looks good and acts decently. Rakshita gets a plump role in this flick and acts well for her character.
But it is Maanas, who walks away the cake. This young kid, looks good and acts even better. He has a bright future and should cleverly choose his films.
The entire set up and the way story is set also looks cool. The way the four friends narrate their stories to Sanyasi’s is also shown humorously.
Glamour quotient and songs have been shot effectively. Some jokes and first ten minutes of the film is quite interesting.
Green signal is a remake of the super hit Hindi film Pyar Ka Punchnama and one story is copied from the Emraan Hashmi episode from the film Dil To Baccha Hai Ji.
Even though the director chooses a Hindi film, he could not execute the plot effectively. The Hindi film had hilarious comedy which is missing from this film.
Those who have watched this film, will exactly know what is going to happen next. But for those who have not watched, even they can predict the next scenes.
Not even one story fails to register in the mind, and the over the top and irritating gay comedy by Jabasdasth fame Chammak Chandra will make you feel sleepy.
The film is quite predictable most of the times. Some cheesy double meaning comedy, could have also been avoided in this flick.
Even though songs by JB are decent, at least two of them could have been avoided. They not only disturb the flow of the film but come at crucial interesting points.
Camera work is pretty good in the film. They way the first club song has been shot is really good. The visuals look good and the production values have not been compromised.
Even though the director took an interesting subject, he could not present it well. As said earlier, he could not elevate the comedy angle and entertainment factor in the story.
Neither of the stories have been established properly and the conclusion was also not justifiable. Editing of the film is sleek and so is the background score.
One the whole, Green Signal is one film which lacks in many departments. The premise chosen and subject had good scope for hilarious entertainment an comedy. But a weak narrative and mediocre direction kills this promising story. You can only give it a try, if you have nothing else to do and have not watched its Hindi original.
