EditorSrivalli Movie Review :
Senior film writer Vijayendra Prasad, the father of SS Rajamouli, who has been in the industry for decades and has penned stories for several big films like Baahubli:The beginning, Baahubali:The Conclusion, Bajrangi Bhaijaan and others, has directed erotic drama Srivalli starring Miss India Neha Hinge and Rajath. Sri Valli is the only 4th film that Vijayendra Prasad has directed in his three decade long career. The film has been promoted by Rajamouli and Ram Charan. It has hit the theaters today on 15th September. Let’s see the storyline
Story: Gowtam (Rajith) are Srivalli (Neha Hinge) are childhood friend. Srivalli’s father Ramachandra (Rajeev Kanakala) is a famous surgeon and one day, Srivalli goes to the US along with her father and brother. After few years, she came back to city and her father then sets up a trust worth Rs 6000 Cr with his entire assets to promote neuroscience research. Suddenly in a road accident, Srivalli’s father dies and her brother slips into a coma. Srivalli volunteers for a dangerous brain mapping experiment successfully. But can Srivalli use brain waves to revive her brother? What are the consequences of the experiment? On the otherside, she is being stalked and harassed by a homosexual woman called Andrea, a classmate from the US in dream. She became unable to distinguish between the dream and reality. She discussed about this with Gowtham and the things take a violent turn after that. What happens to Srivalli? To get this answer, one should watch the film on silver screen.
- Weak screenplay
- Logic-less scenes and plot
- Lack of gripping narration
Performance: One of the biggest assets of the film is the presence of Neha Hinge. Expressions wise, she needs to get better but her performance is good. Her glamour is highlighted. Rajath Krishna has delivered his best. Rajeev Kanakala as the father of Neha performed well. Rest of the cast performed accordingly.
Technical: The story line is interesting. Coming to the director Vijayendra Prasad, he has done a mediocre job and could not execute what was on paper. Enough attention has not been put on the story and screenplay as the plot has many loopholes and screenplay doesn’t grab the audiences’ interest. The graphics used in the film are not remarkable. The editing is not up to the mark.
Analysis: Vijayendra Prasad picks up a highly complex subject –brain mapping but fails to understand the weight of it completely. For audiences, who have watched the visual effects of films like Baahubali on screen, Srivalli has nothing to boast of in this department. The movie has good plot-line but the brain mapping concept and other scientific techniques did not go well with the film flow. There is nothing much to impress the Telugu audiences.
