Artists, Technicians Review
Maruthi came with the concept and the webseries is directed by his assistant Maggie. Ravi Namburi penned the story. The makers came with a female centric webseries and tried to showcase it as female empowerment. However for all their unique concept and except for few hilarious scenes here and there, the narration turned predictable and story turned routine. There are no real twists and turns and screenplay and direction went on the expected lines much to the disappointment of the viewers.
One gets an impression that filmmakers are tending to go to the extremes like showcasing women either too traditional like wearing sarees and doing household chores or turning bold, shunning everything, showing no inhibitions and smoking cigarettes, going to pubs and having relationships and using cusswords.
Eesha Rebba performed her role in a natural and realistic manner. Everyone gets connected to her role as there are many women who are forced to quit jobs for marriage. Eesha portrayed the feelings of such women in a perfect manner showcasing good expressions and emotions. Payal Rajput is apt for the role of bold girl like Janhvi. She oozed with glamor and did what is required from her. Poorna performed well in her role and she got a strong character. Viva Harsha impressed with his hilarious acts.
Ravi Varma did well as the father of Janhvi and the father-daughter bonding is portrayed in a good manner in few scenes. Satyam Rajesh played the role who suffers from health issues. Bigg Boss fame Sarayu's cameo is just ok while Goparaju Ramana performed a similar role he is known for. For all their efforts, one gets a feeling that most of the characters are a miscast. Even the lead actors looked as though they are passing through the motions, showing disinterested or being uncomfortable.
Sunny's music is good. The entire story got only one song. His background score is good. Cinematography of Balreddy is in sync with the story and elevated the scenes. Editing of SB.Uddhav is ok but few drags could have been done away with. Production values are good.
3 Roses webseries generated interest with the female cast of Eesha Rebba, Payal Rajput and Poorna and Maruthi's association increased expectations. However the makers failed to offer anything new and came with routine elements.Repetitive dialogues, predictable narration ended up testing the patience of the viewers disappointing all. CJ goes with a 2 rating for 3 Roses considering all these aspects.
