After a brief break, Allu Sirish came up with a romantic musical story with Anu Emmanuel as the female lead. The film was initially titled Prema Kadanta and later re-titled Urvasivo Rakshasivo. The trailer filled with bold content and kissing scenes provided enough interest. The film was released in theatres on November 4th. The OTT partners for this film are Netflix and AHA. Let's see how the film turned out to be with a detailed review.
Sree Kumar (Allu Sirish) gets smitten by the beauty of Sindhu (Anu Emmanuel). Once Sindhu joined the same office, both get along with each other. Meanwhile, Sree completely falls for Sindhu. One night they both get intimate and Sree proposes to Sidhu his love. What happens next and how the incident changes the dynamics between them follows the story of Urvasivo Rakshasivo.
Urvasivo Rakshasivo deals with modern issues in love and takes an interesting conflict point between marriage and a live-in relationship. Director Rakesh Sashii dealt with the story by blending love, emotions, family drama and comedy neatly. The first half is well executed with a love story between the lead pair gelled with enough comedy to make it an enjoyable watch. While the first half has love problems, the second half deals with marriage issues. The second half gets into another mode with a new conflict. It gets predictable at times in the second half but the family emotions and comedy keeps the film on track. The film which seems to end interestingly takes a turn and ends on a happy note.
Allu Sirish gets a role to play comedy and emotions in the film. He is good at comedy and did well in emotional scenes. Still, he needs to improve in the acting department but he is getting more and more comfortable with his roles. He manages well in Urvasivo Rakshasivo and shows performance improvement compared to his previous films.
Anu Emmanuel looked gorgeous onscreen and gave a very good performance. The character seems spoiled outside but is having her own opinions and dreams. Anu strikes a perfect balance and made her role loveable. Aamani and Kedar Shankar in the roles of Sirish's parents are apt and did well. Sunil and Vennela Kishore provided ample amount of laughs. Some of their scenes with Sirish are laugh riots.
Music and Songs by Achu Rajamani are adequate. The BGM is good during the first half. The cinematography by Tanvir Mir is good and the office scenes look glossy with bright lighting. Production values by the producers are good and the final output looks quality onscreen.
Altogether, Urvasivo Rakshasivo is an urban romance laced with comedy and family emotions. It impresses with the conflict point, intimate chemistry between the lead pair and comedy to an extent. But, too much adult content (liplocks and dialogues at times) might restrict some sections of audiences. Some scenes in second half also seems repetitive. But, overall this is a better film from Allu Sirish in recent times and offers a partly enjoyable and decent film overall. Considering all these elements, Cinejosh goes with a 2.8/5 rating for Urvasivo Rakshasivo.
