Nara Rohit and Nisha Aggarwal have paired up for the movie Solo and the film has released all over the world today. The movie has been directed by Parasuram and Vamsi Krishna Srinivas is the Producer of this movie. Music has been scored by Mani Sharma. Let us see how the movie fares.
Story : Solo is the story of an orphan Gautham (Nara Rohit) whose aim is to get married to a girl with a big joint family. A chance encounter leads him to Vaishnavi (Nisha Aggarwal), who fits all the requirements. Gautham goes on to woo Vaishnavi, who relents after a while.
But Vaishnavi shares a very strong bond with her rich and powerful father Raghupathi Naidu ( Prakash Raj) and family which also comprises of Raghupathi Naidu’s sister (Jayasudha). Will Raghupathi Naidu accept Gautham and his love? That is the rest of the story.
Plus Points :
Nara Rohit puts up a very impressive show. His histrionics are good and he gives a mature and balanced performance. His dance in the first song is pretty good. Nara Rohit is one solid actor to watch out for in future and let us hope he comes up with more movies soon. His voice and diction will win him many admirers.
Nisha Aggarwal is ok as the heroine. She shows promise, but she is still very raw in emotional scenes. A few more movies under the belt and she will come through as a good actress.
Prakash Raj delivers a text book perfect performance as Raghupathi Naidu. These roles have become a cakewalk for him and it is such a joy to watch him on screen. Jayasudha is good in the brief role that she has. Shayaji Shinde is good as the Father in Law from London. Pavitra Lokesh is good as Prakash Raj’s wife.
Srinivas Reddy is top notch in the role of the hero’s friend. He has generated a good comedy track along with M.S.Narayana (Dr. Dharma) and Ali ( Marriage Broker James Cameron). Rao Ramesh and Ranganath make brief appearances.
Emotional scenes have come out well and will connect with the audience. The dialogues are a major asset here (More on that later). Songs have been picturized well. Mumaith Khan sizzles in the item number
Minus Points :
Some emotional scenes in the second half and the story line will remind you of Nuvvu Naaku Nacchav and Nuvve Nuvve.Some of the scenes appear a little cliched and melodramatic. The sudden ‘U turn’ in behaviour and the abrupt way in which Vaishnawi decides to reciprocate Gautham’s love is a little odd.Some more care should have been taken in the romantic track.
Screenplay is a little slow after the interval. Better utilization of Ali’s James Cameron character would have worked wonders in the second half.
Cinematography by Dasaradhi Shivendra is a major asset for the film. The entire movie looks bright and colorful on screen. Parasuram has handled the story well and he largely succeeds in getting the audience involved. Dialogues are a major asset for this film. They are witty, sharp and powerful.
Editing is good. Mani Sharma’s background score and rerecording are impressive. The only fight in the movie has been choreographed well.
Solo is a movie that gets many things right. There are some solid performances from Prakash Raj and Nara Rohit, impressive dialogues and good cinematography. Srinivas Reddy’s comedy is a pleasure to watch. The film is high on entertainment quotient as well as sentiment. A tighter screenplay in the second half would have worked wonders for this movie. Thumbs Up for Nara Rohit’s Solo. You will be solidly entertained.
