Sumanth Ashwin, who is on the lookout for his big break, is back with the his latest film Right Right. An official remake of Malayalam film Ordinary, this film also stars Kalakeya Prabhakar and has hit the screens today.
Right Right starts off with Ravi (Sumanth Ashwin) joining his duty as a bus conductor in a small village. Very quickly, he establishes a good rapport with the driver Seshu (Kalakeya Prabhakar) as well as the regular commuters.
One fine day, when Seshu gets badly drunk during his duty, Ravi is forced to drive the bus back home. During the journey, Ravi hears a sudden sound in front of the bus and thinks he hit someone. He get’s down to find a man under his bus, who is barely alive.
Who is this man? Why did he falls under the bus ? and What do Ravi and Seshu do come out of this tricky situation ? These questions form the rest of the story.
One of the major plus points is that the film has spot on casting. Sumanth Ashwin showcases his acting skills and comes off quite impressive in his role. Prabhakar gets a meaty role and makes use of it entirely. Pooja Jhaveri and Pavani Gangireddy manage to do their parts well. The rest of the cast are at their usual best.
The second half is one of the strongest points of the film as this is where the story unravels. The twists that are showcased at regular intervals manage to keep the audience guessing. The interval scene has also been executed well.
The film is quite simple as no additional commercial aspects have been included just for the heck of it. The short run time is also a bonus.
The biggest negative point for the film is the first half. The director takes his own sweet time to establish the characters and by the time the film reaches the interval, the audience feel bored despite the short run time.
The director also failed to execute the anti-climax and climax properly. The ending is very melodramatic and gives the feeling of watching a old 90’s flick. The reason behind the mystery is also weak.
Though the film is made with a small budget, the production values are quite good. Music by JB is mediocre. Editing is acceptable although a few scenes and songs could have been left out. Camera work is appreciable as the locations have been showcased well. Dialogues are at par.
Coming to director Manu, he does an average job for a newcomer. Although he has chosen a remake, he failed setting it up well in Telugu. The way he has narrated the proceedings, especially in the first half is very slow and a tighter screenplay could have done wonders for the film.
On the whole, Right Right falls in the melodrama thriller genre. Although the film is a no-nonsense film and has an interesting story line, the proceedings are very slow and quite old school. If you do not mind these above said factors and want to still give this film a shot, you can go ahead and try it but go in well prepared.
