Uppena Movie Review: Uppena is a romantic entertainer movie, which is helmed by Bucchi Babu Sana, has hit the theaters today on 12th February. The film has Vaishnav Tej, the brother of Sai Dharam Tej, in the lead role and he is sharing the screen space with Krithi Shetty. Vijay Sethupathi who has won the hearts of the movie lovers with his performance in Master, is also the part of Uppena. Let’s see the story of Uppena movie.

Story: Asirwadam aka Aasi(Vaishnav Tej)  who is a fisherman, falls in love with Bebamma (Kriti Shetty),  who is the daughter of a rich landlord Rayanam (Vijay Sethupati). While Aasi and Bebamma love each other with innocence, their union poses a threat to  the reputation of Rayanam, who is a caste-centric man who goes to any extent to withhold his higher position in the community. What happens next forms the rest of the story of Uppena.

  • Songs and BGM
  • Cinematography

 Minus Points:

  • Second half slow
  • Screenplay

Performance: The performance of   Vaishnav Tej and Krithi Shetty, are highlighted and are the main assets of  Uppena.  Vaishnav Tej navigates the depth of his character, shines with a stellar performance that is sensitive, lively and vulnerable.  Krithi Shetty has given her decent performance. The chemistry between the lead pair Vaishnav Tej and Krithi Shetty is refreshing. Once again Vijay Sethupathi steals the show with his performance.  He looks menacing in the role of father. Rest of the cast of Uppena including Sai Chand, and Rajeev Kanakala perform accordingly.

Technical: The music composed by Devi Sri Prasad is fantastic. The soundtrack that has been used to elevate Vijay Sethupathi’ character is superb. All the songs are superb.  The dialogues need a special mention.  The cinematography work is amazing. The production values are very good. Coming on the wok of  Bucchi Sana Babu’ direction, he has done a decent job. The climax is hard hitting and handled well by Bucchi Sana Babu. He manages to bring in elements that set it apart from other honour killing tales.

Analysis: Buchi Babu Sana picks a plotline based on caste and honour killing and becomes successful to execute it.
