Artists, Technicians Review
Puli Vasu decided to show Kalyaan Dhev in an out-and-out mass romantic entertainer. He stars the narration in a decent manner generating interest with the scenes between Kalyaan Dhev and Rachita Ram. Kalyan Dev's first film. Onamalu is learning to falter in acting. The first half ends on a decent note with interest kept intact. However right after the second half, Puli Vasu lost track and with a wafer-thin story, he failed to keep the interest levels high. He tried to elevate the scenes with father-daughter bonding, father-son bonding, and romantic angle but failed to come with strong scenes. He failed to increase the interest as the story lacked the real twists and turns. Puli Vasu failed in his screenplay and direction. While the first half is ok, the second half ended up giving relentless torture. Unnecessary scenes like Naresh's fight and song fo Rajendra Prasad slowed the pace of the film.
Kalyaan Dhev came with improved performance compared to his debut film. He acted well as a happy-go-lucky youngster, sincere lover, and caring human being. He tried to elevate the scenes with his expressions and worked hard in his mannerisms. However, he failed to come with powerful expressions in the climax. He needs to fine-tune his expressions more in his upcoming projects.
Rachita Ram looked cute and as introduced as the dimple queen, she attracted with her dimples when she smiled. She came with good expressions and emotions and impressed with her looks. She performed quite well elevating the scenes coming with different variations.
Rajendra Prasad as the father of Rachita Ram performed well in the role of tailormade for him. Naresh did well in the role that suited his style. Mahesh Vitta and Bhadram are ok in the roles of Kalyan Dhev's friends. Posani Krishna Murali, Tanikella Bharani, and Ajay,Dhanraj and Pragati are fine in their roles.
Thaman came with beautiful and attractive tunes. All the songs are well shot. A couple of songs are emotional and other songs are youthful and foot-tapping. BGM of Thaman is good. Shyam K Naidu's cinematography is appealing. He captured the scenic views alongside the beach in an attractive manner. Editing of Marthand K Venkatesh could have been better. There are many drags that slowed the pace of the film. Production values are ok.
Story, Screenplay, Direction
Kalyaan Dhev pinned his hopes on Super Machi. Puli Vasu elevated Kalyaan Dhev's mass image by including all elements, like romance, family bonding, emotions, etc and Rachita Ram's cute looks turned out to be the added advantage. He included hit songs of mega family heroes. But all that failed to cover the loopholes in the story, script, screenplay, and direction. Listless direction, illogical narration undid all the advantages. Considering all these points, CJ goes with a 2.0 rating for Super Machi.
