Young actors Nandu, Adarsh Balakrishna, Bhupal and Vennela Kishore play important roles in this week’s crime comedy ‘Superstar Kidnap’. Directed by Sushanth Reddy and produced by Chandu, this movie has hit the screens today. Let’s see how it is.
Jai (Adarsh Balakrishna), Nandu ( Nandu) and Bhupal ( Bhupal) are three close friends who have different goals in life. One fine day, they get stuck in a serious problem and need huge money to come out of it. Left with no choice, they decide to kidnap superstar Mahesh Babu and demand money from his family.
Will the trio succeed in kidnapping the superstar ? What are the problems they face during this process ? That forms the rest of the story.
Plus Points :
The major attraction of this movie is its plot which revolves around the kidnap of superstar Mahesh Babu. The cameo performances by Manchu Manoj, Allari Naresh, Nani and Taneesh gives a good boost to the movie. The introduction scenes of all the lead characters have been showcased well.
Interval block is also carried out decently. All the young actors performed well and especially Nandu and Adarsh Balakrishna displayed superb emotions and did complete justice to their roles. Vennela Kishore did a decent job in his role and all his scenes in the second half will entertain the audience big time.
Minus Points :
The routine narration of the story is a big setback for this movie. These type of stories have already been used in numerous movies and the proceedings get predictable most of the times.
The pace of the film slows down during the second half, and the lengthy scenes are a big drawback. Certain comedy scenes are not executed well and all the songs are misplaced and hamper the flow of the movie.
Cinematography by Eeswar is very nice and captures the grand visuals in a superb way. Music and background score by Sai Karthik are good. Editing by Madhu should have been better as many scenes looked lengthy.
Director Sushant Reddy showed his inexperience by narrating a regular story line. His direction is ok but he should have concentrated more on the script. The production values are ok and the makers have brought a decent movie within a limited budget.
On the whole, Superstar Kidnap has some interesting moments going its way. Decent performances by the lead cast and the intriguing set up are basic assets. The name of superstar Mahesh Babu will definitely attract his fans. However, the routine narration and some very predictable scenes hinder the smooth flow of the movie which ends up as just an ok watch.
