Artists, Technicians Review
Desharaj Saiteja who provided a story came up with an interesting concept. However, the story lacked interesting twists and turns. Ramana Teja's screenplay and direction failed to inspire any confidence. Though the narration starts off in an interesting manner, Ramana Teja quickly loses the plot and from then on everything turns out to be routine and tedious. While the start is interesting and twists are revealed one by one, the real story starts only in the second half.
Ann Sheetal made an impact on her performance. She impressed with her looks and performance and screen presence. Kalyan Dhev is ok and came up with a better performance compared to his earlier films but has to work a lot and improve on all aspects to reach the next level. Ravindra Vijay performed well as an antagonist. Kashish Khan got a limited screen presence. The narrative words provided by Sai Teja Desharaju are the latest, the narrative captivates the audience till the very end. The thrilling story is the major highlight of the film and the writer gets good marks.
Mahati Swara Sagar failed to make an impression with his music. His music and songs turned out to be pretty average. However, he made a good impact with his background music. Dinesh Babu's cinematography is ok. Editing could have been better. Production values are good.
Lack of real twists
Kalyan Dhev-Ramana Teja's movie title itself Kinnerasani sent positive vibes among movie lovers increasing expectations. Those who watched the film however felt that for all the feel-good title, Ramana Teja despite coming with an interesting storyline, he failed to set the screens on fire with the screenplay and direction. Little fine-tuning of the screenplay and more twists and tuns would have made the difference. Considering all these elements, CJ goes with a 2 rating for Kinnerasani.
