Yet another protegee of Shekhar Kammula, Tumma Kiran has turned director with his debut film Dil Deewana. This youthful entertainer has Rohit Reddy, Raj Arjun, Kritika Singhal and Neha Deshpande in lead roles. This film has hit the screens today and let’s see how it is.
The movie has two love stories running parallely. The first one features Surya(Raj Arjun) and Sri Lakshmi(Kritika) who are in love with each from the past five years. As Surya has some financial family problems, he keeps postponing his marriage with Sri Lakshmi. Irritated with this attitude, one day Sri Lakshmi gets into a huge argument with Surya and parts ways.
The second story features Santosh(Rohit) and Divya(Neha Deshpande). Santosh is an aspiring film director who falls in love with Divya, who is a costume designer. Even this love story ends with a small feud between the couple.
Though both the above said stories start on a different note in the first half, they reach at a certain point called Tilak(Ngag Babu). Who is this Tilak? How is he related to the these love stories? Will the separated couples patch up finally? For all these questions, you need to watch the film on big screen.
Nagababu plays a key role in this film. He does complete justice to his part and acts pretty well. Debutante Rohit impresses in the role of a aspiring director. He looks stylish and carries off his role exceptionally.
Heroines Neha and Kritika make decent debuts. Dhanraj and Venu’s comedy in a few scenes is good. Climax of the movie is convincing and justifies the whole film. Visually the film is very enhancing.
Biggest drawback of the film is its pace. The movie moves at a snails pace and has the same effect till the end. After a certain point of time, the movie becomes very predictable.
Though both the heroines make decent debuts, their roles are too complex for them to perform. There is absolutely no entertainment in the film which is a big let off for the masses. Dhanraj and Venu have not been used effectively in the film.
Cinematography and music play an important role in elevating this film. Each and every frame looks top notch and give a pleasant feeling.
Ram Narayan’s music is decent. But his background score takes the film to another level. Dialogues are horrible and so is the editing work.
Tumma Kiran is just average as a director. He has handled too many departments, and has faltered in executing the plot properly. His story is pretty ordinary and has nothing much to offer.
Overall, Dil Deewana is yet another badly executed youthful entertainer. Except for the decent visuals and soothing music, this film has nothing to offer and will make you sleep with its slow pace.
