Arjun Reddy : Intense Love Story and a Trend Setter!
If there is any theatrical trailer that immensely caught the attention of viewers mostly among the youth, it is none other than Arjun Reddy. Arjun Reddy has got everything right so far until the release day. Vijay Devarakonda has been a charmer with his aggressive attitude and has cracked it in all the pre-release events. With all these hoopla and hungama going around, Arjun Reddy will for sure be one of the biggest openings for a low budget flick. Where will it go from there will be known after the movie hit the theatres. Arjun Reddy is written and directed by debutante Sandeep Reddy Vanga and produced by Pranay Reddy Vanga. With a runtime of 3 hour 7 minutes, Arjun Reddy promises to touch the right chords as per the makers. Vijay Devarakonda is one soul who is super confident of Arjun Reddy and we hope this movie succeeds and emerge a trend setter of sorts.
Arjun Reddy (Vijay Devarakonda) is a doctor who falls in love with Preethi (Shalini) while pursing his medicine course. Preethi is a fresher when Arjun sees her first time and Arjun is a senior.It is love at first sight for Arjun. He saves Preethi from anyone who tries to rag or act mischievous with Preethi. She also gradually falls in love with him. Their love becomes so strong that they cannot live without each other. But Preethi’s parents have a problem to inter caste marriage and gets Preethi married to another person. What happens next has to be seen on silver screen.
A new director named Sandeep Reddy Vanga has arrived in Tollywood to teach everyone of what it takes to make a path breaking or a trend setting movie of sorts in the current scenario. From frame 1 till the end titles, he has scorched the screen with his impeccable direction. Though it is a 3 hour 7 minute movie, never was a moment that the audience could take their eye away from the screen. Be it the way he used screenplay and editing, it is all freshness engulfed on silver screen. Take a bow Sandeep Reddy Vanga, you are here to rule the roost for a longer time. Though we get a feel if the movie is getting bold at few instances, after watching the climax and coming out of the theatre, we get to realize how intense his love story was. Radhan music and Raju Thota cinematography are top notch. On the whole, there is nothing to pin point any negativity on the technical team.
Vijay Devarakonda is at his best in Arjun Reddy. It is really surprising to see the bundle of talent he possess. His performance in Arjun Reddy will be remembered in years to come. Anything is small to write on what he has done on screen. Shalini is cute and bubbly. She was apt in her role as Preethi. Rahul Rama Krishna who acted as Vijay’s friend is a new find to Telugu Industry. He excelled in his role and his character dominated Arjun Reddy’s character few times. Arjun’s grand mother character was nicely sketched. Kamal Kamaraju was decent as Arjun’s brother and so is Sanjay Swaroop as Arjun Reddy’s father.
One bold scene showcasing Arjun Reddy character that comes in the first five minutes.
Could have been less bolder in few other instances that comes here and there in the movie.
Box Office Prospects:
Arjun Reddy will create history at box office. Sold for 5 crores, this will go on to collect at least 10 times the budget and may well touch the 50 cr mark world wide. A sure shot blockbuster at the box office. Was surprised to see 60% ladies and family audience for the morning show on the release day of Arjun Reddy.
Final Punch: Arjun Reddy is an intense love story with a very strong message. If not for a very few bold scenes, it can easily be watched by families. A must watch movie for youth.
