Popular comedian Getup Srinu has turned a hero for the movie Raju Yadav. The movie directed by Krishnamachary has Ankitha Kharat as the female lead. Let’s see how the film is.


Raju Yadav (Getup Srinu) hailing from Mahabubnagar gets hit by a cricket ball which turns his life upside down. This leads to a facial disorder which makes Raju Yadav smile all the time. Doctors advise Raju to undergo a surgery but his family can’t afford the treatment. While nothing is going right in Raju’s life, he sees Sweety (Ankitha Kharat) one day and falls for her instantly. How Sweety changed Raju’s life forms the crux of the story.


Plus Points:

Raju Yadav’s character demands the protagonist to maintain the same facial expression throughout the movie whatever the situation is. This is indeed a tough task but Getup Srinu gave a commendable performance in this romantic drama. The actor tried to lift the film in many scenes even when the writing isn’t strong.

Some fun scenes featuring Getup Srinu and his friends evoke laughs. Ananda Chakrapani who played hero’s father did a good job and the emotional moments featuring him and Getup Srinu over the end are satisfactory.


Minus Points:

Raju Yadav’s core idea is interesting, but the same cannot be said about the screenplay. The writing team failed to convert the interesting idea into a rollercoaster ride. Most part of the film is boring with poorly written scenes that hardly make any mpact.

The heroine’s characterisation in Raju Yadav has a striking resemblance to the female lead roles in few blockbuster movies, that stirred a discussion among the public. Hence there is nothing exciting in the proceedings and it isn’t tough to guess where the movie is heading. Though Ankitha Kharat did a good job, we can’t connect to her role due to the familiar plot line.

The similarity with other movies isn’t the whole issue. Except for the climax portions, Raju Yadav lacks emotional depth and there are many boring moments throughout the runtime. The editing is below par as many scenes test the patience levels.


Technical Aspects:

Harshavardhan Rameshwar’s songs are passable. The background score by Suresh Bobbili is just okay. The cinematography by Sai Ram is fine and the production values are decent.

Direction by Krishnamachary is below par. The makers applied the tried and tested formula, but the writing doesn’t hit the right note. The movie also doesn’t have clarity and there is inconsistency in the hero’s behaviour.



On the whole, Raju Yadav is a tedious romantic drama with a plot line which is being overused lately. Getup Srinu is pretty good in his portrayal and a handful of fun scenes work. But the rest of the movie is very boring and there is lack of consistency in the proceedings. Hence Raju Yadav ends up being a disappointing watch. Rating: 2.25/5
