Performance of Artists
Sai Subhakar has earlier appeared as a child artist in some movies. Without much publicity, now he debuted as a hero with 'Nachchavule'. He performed gracefully in the character of a teenage lover boy in this film. His performance is impressive and does justice to his role.
Madhavi Lata who debuted as heroine is equally good in her role as a naïve lover. Kasi Viswanath who stepped as a director with 'Nuvvuleka Nenulenu' in to Tollywood, has started his second innings in the industry as an actor. He sheens in the role of the hero's father. Raksha did well within the purview of her character.
Kamesh as heroine's father, Narasimha as hero's friend, Navin is a character with a bit of negative shade, and another artist who played hero's brother, have all shared screen space with their neat performance.
Music director Sekhar Chandra composed delightful music although this is his very first venture. The music plays one of the main assets in taking the movie to new heights. Lyrics by Bhaskara Bhatla Ravi kumar, editing by Marthand K Venkatesh are good and does a neat job.
N.Sudhakar Reddys cinematography is very nice. Especially, the light & shade effects that are featured in the songs look alluring.
Ravi Babu who learnt direction in Hollywood, has already proved himself with his first film 'Allari'. He later made films like 'Ammayilu Abbayilu', 'Party' and 'Anasuya'. Now the director has churned out 'Nachchavule' which makes the youth to ponder over the subject. He had succeeded in presenting the view point clearly on screen. Comprising of a myriad of new faces and no stars in the lead, Ravi Babu reaped the comment Nachchavule (liked U) from the audience.
The message of the movie relates that parents are a role model for their children and they naturally tend to adopt the morals exemplified by them. So, the child should be treated with love and affection, and also be guided in the right path. The movie is a mirror reflection of the attitude of present generation who misinterpret relations and people. It's a message aptly conveyed for the youth and parents alike.
Director Ravi babu deserves applause for choosing a contemporary script and making it entertaining. 'Nachchavule' will sure be a delight for the youth.
