Artists, Technicians Review
Santo Mohan Verenki on debut tried to attract movie lovers by coming up with a romantic entertainer choosing an interesting premise. But after selecting the premise he failed to come up with the right story and the script to do justice to the premise. Everything turns out to be routine and monotonous and even the so-called comedy scenes in the name of standup comedy failed to liven up the atmosphere. Right from the start till the finish none of the scenes generate interest and even the emotional scenes fail to touch the viewers. Dialogues failed to power the film and the weak narration with a lack of real twists and turns impacted the film in a bad manner.
Raj Tharun underwent a transformation to do the Genex youngster role completely different from his roles with mass touch. He is ok with his appearance. The only transformation in his mannerism is using headphones for most of the story. Except for this part of his physical appearance, there are no real drastic changes. He failed to do justice to his role as a standup comedian. He failed to lightup the screens with his hilarious acts. He should work a lot on his dialogue delivery.
Varsha Bollamma is ok in her role. She tries her best as a youngster who has no courage to speak up to her parents. She looked quite average on-screen and performance-wise also she is just ok. Murali Sharma and Indraja performed their roles well. Vennela Kishore and others irritated with their comedy.
Sweekar Agasthi's music failed to make an impression. None of the songs connected chords with the viewers. His background score is ok. Editing of Raviteja Girijala left a lot to be desired. He cannot be faulted since there is no story in the film. Sreeraj Raveendran with his cinematography beautified the film. Production values are good.
Story, Screenplay, Direction
Music, BGM, Cinematography
Raj Tharun believed in debutante Santo Mohan Veranki. But he failed within no time failing to generate interest in any aspect. He failed to showcase the emotions and expressions, highlight romantic feelings, and even failed to execute the core point the hilarious and entertainment angle and ended up giving immense torture to viewers. Considering all these aspects, CJ goes with a 1.25 rating for StandUp Rahul.
