Eccentricity in designing the main protagonist characterization has always been the USP of Sukumar scripting. May it be Allu Arjun in ‘Arya, Arya 2’ or Mahesh Babu in ‘1 Nenokkadine’ or Naga Chaitanya in ‘100 % Love,’ there is a visible grey shade in them which actually proved dangerous early on.
When testing such traits on upcoming heroes or heroes with moderate stardom, Sukku came out with flying colors. In contrast, when it comes to operating the same concept on a star hero like Mahesh Babu, it repelled. Yet, Sukku still believes in the same style of scripting and ‘Kumari 21 F’ just changed the mode of application from hero to heroine. Yes, Hebah Patel happens to be the hero(ine) in film who behaves so erratically with quintals of boldness.
Once again, Sukku was visible in Hebah all through the journey a viewer makes with Meena Kumari in the film. Good or bad, Sukumar can never come out of his regular best zone of unconventional or oddball peculiar attributes in his central character, which could be a hero or heroine. Next time, the suffering victim could be Junior NTR.
