Kalavari King is a damp squib that tries very hard to be a funny but fails miserably thanks to a poor script and sketchy characterization. The director can’t make up his mind whether he wants to make comedy or a love story with the final result being a tragedy for the audience!!!

What is it about : Rajesh (Nikhil) is a not-so-innocent village boy who wants to make it big in life easily and in the process ends up taking loans from every other person in the village. In a parallel track, we have Shruthi (Shweta Prasad) who is being harassed by the local goon Narender (Ajay) who also happens to be her brother-in-law. Very soon, Rajesh & Shruthi meet and a couple of misunderstandings lead to Rajesh turning over a new leaf. He then transforms into a successful loan recovery agent and for some unexplained reason decides to rescue Shruthi from the clutches of her brother-in-law. In the last 15 mins of the movie, they suddenly realize their love for each other before an insipid climax leads to a happy ending for them and the audience!

What is Good: Not much to cover in this section except for a few comical scenes between Nikhil and his creditors. Apart from this, Ali’s spoof on the “Baba” act from Arundathi was good while Venu Madhav with his “Veera Simha” character evoked some laughs as well.

What is bad: The script is the biggest culprit here since it appears that the writer wanted to throw in a lot of comic scenes and then weave a story out of it. So we have an entire first half which is mainly on Nikhil’s antics which bore you after a point and then the second half tries too hard to show a non-existent love story. Nikhil’s character is supposed to be a mimic that had a lot of comic potential but unfortunately that part is wasted. Apart from Nikhil, the rest of the cast put in a mediocre performance while the production values are just about average. Shwetha Prasad needs to work on gaining more expressions while losing those extra kilos that give her a different type of screen presence!!!

Me Thinks: This movie can be safely avoided …watch it at your own risk!

Tailpiece: Nikhil tries very hard to ape Ravi Teja’s style that is characterized by loud comedy, smart one-liners & some action scenes but it doesn’t work here !!!
