Krishna Gaadi Veera Prema Gadha starts off pretty well, but as the drama unfolds the grip starts loosening up. Movie a sort of inspired from various Telugu commercial hits relies too heavily on an age old theme. Though the basic idea is interesting, the execution lacks the grip to keep you enthralled. The fault lies in the way the writer and director presented the story.
From the script point of view, the story ends soon after the interval,when Nani meets Mahalakshmi at a marriage event. Thereafter the drama is stretched without any valid reason, making it a tedious exercise.The director has relied too heavily on clinched points to move the story forward. Predictability is what bogs the film down to a major extent. However, the saving grace is the timely punchlines and comedy by Rajesh, Brahmaji, Prudhvi and Prabhas Seenu, which keeps the viewers entertained. The writer-director even left the major points aside, as no one cares about Mehreen post the attack on Ramaraju's home. Even when Nani says Mahalakshmi is kidnapped, ACP Srikanth neverreally worries about her. Even Mehreen never worries about the reasonwhy the kids are with Nani or worries when someone tries to kidnapthem. The script in the second half is below average. Barring the climax, which is deftly executed.
Director Hanu Raghavapudi done a decent job in the first half, but fails to maintain the tempo in the second. Music by Vishal Chandrasekhar is alright, although the impact is diluted thanks to many songs in the second half. “Nuvvante Naa Navvu" is the best among all the tracks be it situation wise or execution wise. Background score sharp enough to keep you interested. Cinematographer Yuvraj hasdone a decent job. Stunt master Vijay deserve a special mention.Dialogues are well penned at places. Editing of the film is passableand the second half needs some trimming. Production values of 14 Reels Entertainment are alright.
