The small-budget film Sriranga Neethulu, starring Suhas, Ruhani Sharma, Viraj Ashwin, and Karthik Rathnam, has hit the screens. Praveen Kumar VSS is the director. Let’s see how the film is.

Story:

The film is about four characters, played by Suhas, Viraj Ashwin, Ruhani Sharma, and Karthik Rathnam, who are undergoing different issues in life. Suhas is a TV mechanic, while Karthik Rathnam is a drug addict. Viraj Ashwin and Ruhani Sharma have been in a relationship for a few years. Sriranga Neethulu is about the problems these people are going through and how they solve them.

Plus Points:

Sriranga Neethulu’s team did a solid job with casting. All the actors gave very good performances in this anthology film. Ruhani Sharma is a talented actress, and she has once again done an impressive job with this flick. Be it any genre, Ruhani is leaving a mark with her acting prowess.

Suhas is a proven artist, and he performed with ease in Sriranga Neethulu. His body language and dialogue delivery are on point. Karthik Rathnam is commendable as a drug addict, and his scenes with Devi Prasad came out well. The good thing about the film is that it has four to five hilarious sequences that bring a pleasant smile to our faces.

Minus Points:

The director tried to deliver a message aimed at the current generation. However, what is more important than the social message is how it is presented. This is where Sriranga Neethulu falters. It has some fun moments scattered here and there, but the foremost important aspect, which is the emotional depth, is missing. No doubt the fun portions are good, but at the same time, the humor has overshadowed the core element.

The story doesn’t offer anything new, and the focus is on highlighting some of the real-life issues. However, they are not established well in the first place, making it difficult to root for the central characters. The love track between Viraj and Ruhani is confusing, and it becomes difficult to understand what the fuss is all about.

The same goes for Karthik Rathnam’s character, as detailing is missing. Why did Karthik turn into a drunkard? The reason is not revealed. Good intentions alone are not sufficient. They should also be conveyed effectively and clearly. The climax portions are very important for films like these, but unfortunately, the ending scenes are poorly written and presented in Sriranga Neethulu, and hence, one would walk out half-heartedly.

Technical Aspects:

The music and background score are decent. The production values are good, and Tijo Tomy’s visuals are neat. The editing could have been better.

Praveen Kumar VSS’s direction doesn’t leave a lasting impression. The comedy scenes are written and executed well, but not enough care was taken regarding the emotional scenes. The intended message isn’t told properly, and the film ends abruptly. The control over the proceedings was lost in the second half.

Verdict:

On the whole, Sriranga Neethulu targets today’s youth and tries to offer them a message. Suhas, Ruhani Sharma, Viraj Ashwin, and Karthik Rathnam are good in their roles, and the film has a few fun scenes. The first half is passable, but the film loses steam in the second half. The intended message isn’t communicated clearly, and the film lacks the desired emotional depth. Had the team taken care of these aspects, the end result could have been much better.
