Achari America Yatra: Routine Template Yatra
Manchu Vishnu and G.Nageswara Reddy join hands for the third time after Dhenikaina Ready and Eedo Rakam Aado Rakam. Both their earlier movies made decent revenue at box office. Pragya Jaiswal is paired up with Vishnu for the first time along with Brahmanandam in a prominent role. The rest of the cast include Prabhas Sreenu, Praveen, Vidhyullekha Raman, Pradeep Rawat, Kota Srinivasa Rao and others. The technical team comprises of S.Thaman, R.Sidharth and M.R.Varma who have handled music, cinematography and editing respectively. Let’s see what Achari America Yatra is all about.
Story : (Spoilers ahead)
Appalachari (Brahmanandam) is a brahmin priest who conducts rituals for a living. Krishnamachari (Manchu Vishnu) is his best student along with two other priests enacted by Prabhas Sreenu and Praveen.
Chakrapani (Kota Srinivasa Rao) has two daughters who are married to Subbaraju (Pradeep Rawat) and Raja (Raja Ravindra) and a son who dies along with his wife in a accident leaving his only daughter Renuka (Pragya Jaiswal). Renuka is the only heir to Chakrapani’s property and is bought up in America. Subbaraju wants his son Vicky (Thakur Anoop Singh), who is also in America, to marry Renuka for her property. However, Renuka rejects the proposal.
Appalachari and his team gets an opportunity to perform a ritual at Chakrapani’s home. Renuka also returns from US to be a part of the ritual. Krishnamachari helps Renuka when she is subjected to an attempted murder by Subbaraju’s men. Eventually they fall in love with each other. At the end of the ritual, Chakrapani dies due to suffocation. Subbaraju and his men are out to take revenge of the chari gang as they believe that they are responsible for Chakrapani’s death. Renuka returns to US without informing Krishnamachari.
Krishnamachari wants to find Renuka and help her from Subbaraju and his gang. How he does that forms the basic plot of Achari America Yatra.
Manchu Vishnu and Brahmanandam are seen throughout the movie and have given an impressive performance. It was indeed good to see Brahmanandam in a full length role after a very long time. The scene where Vishnu got hurt during shooting was shown in the last slide during end titles. I personally thought that this scene should have been shown at the start of end titles. Pragya Jaiswal had a substantial role and the whole plot revolves around this character. She did justice to her role and didn’t hesitate to go bold in few scenes. Kota Srinivas Rao was fabulous in the role of Chakrapani. It was heartening to see him ageing but still manages to give his best. Prabhas Sreenu and Praveen were decent as the other members of the hero gang and are seen throughout the movie. Vidhyullekha Raman was good as Pragya’s friend. Satya Krishna excelled in her short role with an eye-winking problem. Prudhvi, Master Bharat, Surekha Vani, Pradeep Rawat, Raja Ravindra and others fitted the bill well.
Thaman’s music and background score was decent and so is Sidharth’s camera work. Village and America visuals are captured well, though not great. Screenplay and editing could have been better. Direction and narration is ages old and predictable to the core. Dialogues are good.
Box Office Prospects:
The box office prospects of Achari America Yatra is bleak. Will most likely end up as a disaster.
Though Achari America Yatra is decent, irrespective of its routine and predictable factor, the result of this movie will be a classic example of what the audience are craving for. They are in no mood to accept routine template movies, Simple!
