Eedu Gold Ehe Movie Review

'Eedu Gold Ehe', touted as an entertainer with loads of twists and suspense, joins the Dasara race.  Here we tell you what to expect and what not to expect from the Veeru Potla film.

Story:

As the film begins, hi-tech offender Mahadev (Puneet Issar) makes his villainy clear, warning his son (Charandeep) that he won't be spared if he errs with judgement the next time.

Cut to curd rice boy Bangarraju (Sunil), who brings bad luck upon his employer with all good intentions.  After victimizing Prudhvi, he moves to Hyderabad to harass Prabhas Sreenu.  His life goes for a toss as one mysterious character after another (a half-naked girl Richa Panai, a violent blackmailer Posani Krishna Murali, and certain baddies) mistake him for Sunil Varma, who has stolen off artifacts from Mahadev's house.

Bangarraju has to race against time to trace Sunil Varma, who is on the run.  If he doesn't hurry up, he will lose his new-found non-mother mother (Jayasudha) and non-brother brother (Arvind Krishna).  In this, he has none to fall back on, except his guts which come out with gusto if and when he will run out of patience.

Hits:

All comedians (Sunil excluded) have done a good job (*conditions applied).  Prudhvi, senior Naresh, Shakalaka Shankar, Vennela Kishore, Prabha Sreenu and others elicit laughs wherever the writing is good.

Veeru Potla's dialogues come with some sparks.

The story line is OK.  The twist in the tale is well-executed.

The 'kodi' episode brings the house down.

Richa Panai and Sushma Raj do a good job.

Misses:

Veeru Potla pens a comedy of confusion with a good amount of focus.  Since the focus is too much, the noise also is too much.  (To be fair to him, the 'kodi' comedy track in second half is the only scene which is there for the sake of it).

While the screenplay should have been less convoluted, Sunil is forced to bear too much on his puny shoulders.  The idea of the male lead unleashing his potential for gravity-defying action only after much flirting with useless pacifism, borders on the ridiculous.

The mother sentiment is too cliched.  Jayasudha doesn't leave an impact.  Neither does Sunil, who does a tearjerker by going unmistakably overboard.

For God's sake, let Sunil's directors realize that he shouldn't be shown as both a decent Telugu cinema hero and a comedian with Mr. Bean-esque traits at once.

Much as Sunil gets to say many imaginative lines film after film, his comic timing has taken a beating either because he is confused which section of audience to cater to or because he has become narcissistic.

The climax portions, involving all the characters, could have been done better.

The songs are 'rolled gold ehe'.

Action choreography is ordinary.

Verdict:

'EGE' is louder than normal.  Sunil once again fails to make the cut.  Comedy works to an extent.

Rating: 2.50 / 5.0
