Definitely, there is no harm for comedy heroes trying the odd hand on new concepts. This is an encouraging move. However, Allari Naresh secured a safe hero image in Tollywood seems to have burnt his hands completely with the new release of ‘Bandipotu.’ Any film, may it belong to Naresh or any comedy hero, a minimum dose of comedy based entertainment is a must. In fact, ‘Bandipotu’ is promoted with the images of Sampoornesh Babu, Sapthagiri alongside Naresh.
This led to build up of expectations on ‘Bandipotu’ as a serious film with enough of comedy. Tragically, director Indraganti Mohana Krishna made the flick devoid of ample fun. The run was so dry and audience started spreading a discouraging word from the very first show. Agreed that Naresh tried it differently, final verdict of audience is what matters the most.
