Yet another small budget film which has hit the screens today is Nenu Na Friends. Directed by G S Rao, this film has all new comers in lead roles. Let’s now see how the film is.
The movie is based in a junior college in Hyderabad. Teja, Yadagiri, Rajesh and Srinu are four best friends who keep poking fun at girls and enjoy their life in college.
One fine day, they fall in love with four beautiful girls. As time passes by, each of them find themselves in lots of trouble particularly Teja(Sandeep) and Sandhya( Anjana).
Rest of the story is as to how Teja manages to woo Sandhya back in his life, with the help of his other friends.
Even though the star cast are new, they have done a decent job. The male stars look nicely trained and have performed well. The female lead Anjana also does a decent job with her innocent looks.
The so called double meaning comedy also looks good in parts. First half of the movie is quite funny, and moves on a brisk pace. Climax of the film is highly emotional and carries a good message.
The way the youth oriented messages have been shown is pretty good. All the problems showcased, and the way they are solved have also been executed decently.
Even though some double meaning dialogues have been executed well, they keep coming in huge numbers and cause some inconvenience to the audience.
Yet another drawback of the film is that it is highly predictable. Even the interval block is not so impressive, and does not cause any impact.
Some of the scenes featuring Teja and Sandhya in the second half have been stretched to the core.
The songs which come during the first half are pretty good. Camera work is also decent, as the entire set up and scenes have been shown aptly.
Editing of the film is quite average, as some major scenes could have been cut short during the second half. Dialogues written by Paruchuri brothers are superb and connect well to the audience.
Director G S Rao has marginally succeeded in getting some of the portions right for the film. Some youth oriented factors have been handled pretty well by him.
On the whole, Nenu Na Friends belongs to the genre of Maruthi’s E Rojullo and Bus Stop. Decent acting by the entire cast and a entertaining first half are some basic plus. But an predictable second half, and over dose of double meaning dialogues spoil the fun most of the times.
