A small film named Pareshan has hit the screens today. The movie features Masooda hero Thiruveer as the protagonist. Rana Daggubati is its presenter, and Rupak Ronaldson directed it. Let’s see how it is.
Issac (Thiruveer), Paasha, Satthi, RGV, and Maidak are four happy-go-lucky youngsters living in the Singareni area. They are all addicted to alcohol, and no matter what the situation is, they keep boozing. As Satthi and Paasha are in need of money, Issac gives them his father’s money. Issac is deeply in love with Sirisha (Pavani Karanam), and one day they engage in sexual intercourse. Sirisha thinks she is pregnant and conveys the info to Issac. Issac says he will arrange the money for Sirisha’s abortion, thinking his friends Paasha and Satthi will repay him. They don’t repay, and furthermore, Satthi loots some more money from Issac and runs away. The rest of the film is about how Issac handled his problems.
These days films rooted in Telangana culture are becoming a trend, and Pareshan also falls in the same category. The movie highlights the nature of the Telangana region nicely, and Telangana folks can relate to the film easily. The songs are neatly written, composed, and situation based.
Comedy portions in the first hour are okay in parts. The love track between Thiruveer and Pavani Karanam was good, and the fun portions that follow this romantic track evoked decent laughs. Though the pace was a tad slow here, the first half was watchable for its humor.
Thiruveer is superb as Issac, and he has got wonderful comedy timing. His expressions are spot on, and his antics will tickle the funny bones. Bunny Abiran and Arjun Krishna score well in their respective roles.
The film has a wafer-thin storyline, and one can’t help but notice it in the second hour. In the first hour, the comedy portions kept the proceedings going, but in the second half, the director ran out of ideas. Hence he tried to fill the film with more and more comedy stuff, but that didn’t work out.
A very few fun portions click in the second half, but most of them don’t. At times the forceful comedy might cause irritation too. For example, a character’s finger gets cut during the mid portion, and the makers tried to depict it in a funny manner, but that looked extremely odd.
Also, the second half has been stretched quite heavily, and the editing team should have reduced the length to make things better. The pacing, too, gets incredibly slow here. The movie also falls flat in terms of emotions as more emphasis has been laid on generating comedy. There should have been a proper balance of fun and emotional aspects.
Yashwanth Nag’s music and background score are key assets of Pareshan, as the music composer did a compelling job. Vasu Pendem’s camera work is good as he showcased the countryside visuals beautifully. The editing, as mentioned above, could have been better. The production values are fair.
Coming to the director, Rupak Ronaldson, he did a passable job with the film. In an attempt to provide an out-and-out comedy entertainer, he didn’t focus much on the plot and emotions. Also, a few comedy portions do irritate. The final output would have been much better had the director worked more on the second half.
On the whole, Pareshan is a strictly okayish village drama that has a few fun moments here and there. Thiruveer and the entire cast performed well, but the weak storyline and below-par second half brought down the film as a whole. Apart from a few comedy portions, there is nothing great to rave about the film.
