Tamil actor Arya isn’t too distant from Telugu crowds. He was appreciated for his work in Nenu Devunni and gave a powerful performance as a villain in Varudu. He is now back in Telugu with Nene Ambani, a dubbing version of Boss Engira Bhaskaran. Let’s see if Arya continues to woo Telugu fans.

Nene Ambani What’s it about: Bhaskar (Arya) is a good for nothing average guy, who has been attempting to clear his Degree exams in Rajahmundry. He whiles away his time at his friend’s Hair Cutting Salon. His mother, sister and elder brother aren’t too confident about his success this time too. It is on the day of his English exam that he meets Chandrika, and starts wooing her. It doesn’t matter to him that she is better educated than him, and is too good for him in many ways.

In the mean time Bhaskar plays a key role in getting his veterinary doctor brother married to Nandini (Vijayalakshmi).He realizes that Chandrika is Nandini’s sister and that he can now win her over. However, when Nandini comes to realize Bhaskar’s intentions, she pokes at his ‘unworthy’ status. Ridiculed by her, Bhasker goes out of his home, promising to his family that he will make big money in just six months. Will he be able make the money in six months or not is the question that is answered in the movie.

What is Good: The movie is a light comedy. Though there are few laugh-out-loud moments, the director keeps the laughs subdued. Many would think that the movie could become more ‘intense’ once the hero makes a promise. However, it is exactly where the director manages to surprise you. Infact the movie never gets serious at any point of time.

Arya is good in the role of ‘just another average guy’. His characterization is pretty clear – he would never ever want to listen to any advice from any one, not even from his girl friend. It is exactly where the character of Nayantara becomes important. She looks cute in the songs, and performs with an air of confidence. Santhanam does a very good job playing the hero’s side kick. It seems he has replaced Vadivelu in the Tamil film industry. Subbu, who plays the role of Arya’s brother, performs within his limitations and manages to get some laughs too.

What is bad: As the director Rajesh tries to avoid any seriousness, the movie sometimes comes across as being impractical. There is hardly any explanation as to why the heroine falls for the hero, inspite of his many obvious shortcomings! The second half episode where both hero and his sidekick come up with an idea to make money is a touch too loud for our comfort. The climax becomes ridiculous once Jeeva makes an entry.

Technical Departments: : Even though there are no big laughable scenes, Ramesh manages to eke out smiles from you cleverly using other movies and with background music. Yuvan Shankar Raja comes up with decent tunes and re-recording too. Editing by Vivek Harshan is apt for the movie, and Sakthi Saravanan’s cinematography captures the movie pretty decently. Infact all the songs have been exceptionally shot.

Final Point: Nene Ambani falls somewhere between comedy, parody and slapstick. If you are looking for a time pass movie, then this one is definitely for you.
