'F3' hit the screens today. In this section, we are going to review the latest box-office release.
Venkatesh and Varun Tej are in dire trouble after they lose lakhs and lakhs of rupees due to conspiracies hatched by Tamannaah Bhatia and Mehreen Pirzada. Pushed to a wall, Venky and Varun try to cheat a rich man without each other's knowledge.
'F3' is no sequel to 'F2'. Venky and Varun Tej are no co-brothers. Tamannah and Mehreen continue to be sisters. Director Anil Ravipudi spends the first 30-40 minutes setting up the story.
Venkatesh and Raghu Babu continue to share an 'F2'-level chemistry. Their scenes work really well. We enjoy Venaktesh's performance more in Raghu Babu's presence than in the presence of other major characters
Murali Sharma's character gets to essay a meaningful role. His character may not be novel, but his presence makes a difference in the plot events.
Devi Sri Prasad's music clicks. 'Life Ante Itla Undala', powered by the lead men and Pooja Hegde, is the best in terms of choreography. The other two major songs feel more like the climax segment where some elements are forcibly written to lighten the nature of the film.
Ali, Sunil and Srinivas Reddy got to play two-dimensional characters. Ali is elbowed out after a point, while Sunil is reduced to caricaturish expressions.
Rajendra Prasad plays a sincere cop, while Sampath Raj is his unscrupulous boss.
Varun Tej and Mehreen's space seems to be eaten into by the very many characters. Tamannaah's character shows a new shade in the second half.
'F3' is a watchable comedy that indulges in its eccentric elements with abandon. Able performances and funny situations do the talking.
