In an alleged crime drama, there is a calm song about the trappings of cell phone addiction. Like the son of an actual uncle, a young husband plays the song on a smartphone in a pub.
Then there is another character who is very addicted to Upma. With pub songs and Upma songs, writer and director Balaraju M try to lighten the mood. But they ultimately undermine the public interest (if any). To use slang jargon to describe elements that cause boredom, they are “upma”.
The “upma” songs give way to a plot that only emerged in the last 20 minutes of the 115-minute snooze festival.
As far as we do know, there is one psychopath. Whose abnormal behaviour is described as a stupid monologue. The sensation was about to explode.
Sashi (Vaishali Raj, one of the few Telugu-speaking girls to debut in Hollywood films in recent years!) is a bride who doesn’t talk to her husband, Aditya (South Ram). She shares her sad past where her friend Surya (Sukrant Veerela) left her, which caused her suffering and shame.
CI Victor Raju (Kishore Kumar Polimera), an angry and unethical cop, examines an unidentified body found in a garbage dump. Enter Rama Krishna (Sunil). A private detective is trying to piece together various elements and clear up Sashi’s past.
“Kanabadutaledo” doesn’t work as a crime thriller or detective comedy (Sunil’s character tries humour but fails again and again).
The loose ends tie in at the end of the film, but the emotional underpinnings of the film are in doubt. The audience never felt Vaishali Raj’s pain. Ravi Varma, who plays his older brother, doesn’t get a rainbow that makes sense. Himaja, a television star in the state of Telugu, is doing well. However, the characteristics are not beginners.
Dialogues sound great as separate lines.
However, as part of a streamlined stage script, they didn’t get hit. “I will kill you so brutally that even your mind is too scared to look. At your mutilated body,” said a sadistic hero. Who could neither evoke fear nor disgust. Does the hero wonder about all these words?
It’s good that this thriller is set in the context of a story of love and family ties. That context has so much potential to turn a crime thriller into a big deal. However, the focus shifts to adding an unnecessary treble to Sunil’s lazily written character. Dark motives do not affect us.
The film has an inconsistent appearance. Sunil is decent, while Kishor Kumar’s reproduction makes it look like a cartoon. Law and Kireti Damarazhu are misinterpreted. Kancharapalem Sucha Rao is almost okay.
Background music from Madhu Ponas gathered. There is no solution for Sandip Baddullah’s cinematography. The physical movement scene is very out of date.
While Victor Raju’s tuning is fascinating, his duplication leads him astra:
Even taking away the seriousness of his character. What’s even more disturbing and is that none of the characters in the film is well-established enough to take care of you, although the first half of the film takes a fair amount of time to do so. In the later film, you quickly lose interest due to an awkward script. Which doesn’t interest you. Sasha’s story of love and torment did not have the effect they created.
However, things got better after Sunil’s character took pictures after a break. The plot suddenly picks an ace, and the loose ends are tied to the ends of them all. Director Balaraju tries to turn Sunil into the cute detective la Navin in Agent Sai Srinivasa Atreya, but he lacks depth. The scene where Sunil, a child detective, leads the police around seems exaggerated. Ravi Varma has no heroes to allow him to appear, and Himaja gets a short wand.
Too many tightly written characters and a half-baked plot spoil the broth here. While potentially interesting, Balarazhus Kanabadulataledu oscillated between a test of patience and, at best, a fall.
