Pelli SandaD Movie Review: Roshan Meka, Sree Leela, and K Raghavendra Rao starrer Pelli SandaD, helmed by Gowri Ronanki has hit the theaters today. Let’s see the story of Pelli SandaD.
Story: Vashishtha (K Raghavendra Rao) is a champion basketball player. He narrates his life story to Rajendra Prasad. The film showcases young Vashishtha (Roshan Meka), who falls in the love of Sahastra (Sree Leela) who is an outgoing girl who believes in destiny, at the relative marriage. But Sahasra’s father (Prakash Raj) opposes their relationship and fixes her marriage with her cousin Chintoo. How does Vashishta and Sahasra tie the knot, form rest of the story.
- Predictable story
- Outdated presentation
Performance: Roshan has given a commendable performance especially his expressions and body language in emotional scenes are superb. He performs well in sentiment scenes and looks good in action scenes. Sree Leela does her best and oozes glamour and confidence equally well. She deals well with the abundance of fruits and ice. Veteran filmmaker K Raghavendra Rao, who helmed over 100 movies in his four decades long career, is good on his acting debut. Prakash Raj, Rao Ramesh and Rajendra Prasad, Vennela Kishore, Shakalaka Shankar perform accordingly.
Technical: There is nothing special in the story. The songs are melodious and heart touching. MM Keeravani created lasting impression with his background score. Cinematography is the main asset of the film. The visuals of the movie are fantastic. Editing is ok but there are few drag scenes in the second half of the movie that test the patience of the movie.
Analysis: The story, comedy and the actors characterizations give the feeling to the audiences as they are watching 90s Telugu movies in 2021. Most of the scenes tests the patience of the movie lovers.
