'Guvva Gorinka' is now streaming on Amazon Prime. Here is our review of the latest OTT release.

Story:

Sadanand (Satyadev Kancharana) is allergic to any sound and therefore wants to invent a noiseless engine as part of his PhD program. He shared a partitioned flat with Sireesha (Priyaa Lal), who is doing PG in music. When the twain meet, petty fights ensue. By and by, they fall in love with each other even though they don't know how they look.

There comes a point when Sadanand comes to know that Sireesha may have other plans. Can they get married at all?

Analysis:

Twenty years ago, we were told India will be a Vishwa Guru by 2020. Cut to the year, the rich farmers of Punjab are making absurd demands and Tollywood is making awfully melodramatic films out of juvenile ideas that should have ideally been mindless comedy tracks in an Anil Ravipudi movie.

'Guvva Gorinka', directed by Mohan Bammidi, is a snoozefest where the writing department sensed that the lead pair's story is wafer-thin and infused two other tracks (one involving a live-in couple and the other one involving Priyadarshi, a philanderer).

Sireesha and Sadanand, who needs psychiatric help rather than a girlfriend, decide not to see each other's faces throughout the film for no plausible reason. It takes a 'Break the Berlin Wall' moment for them to come face to face with each other. Perhaps, the director wanted to tell a 'Veer Zara'-type story where the lead pair is separated by a colonial-era LoC. Due to budget issues, they rented a flat at Ameerpet, partitioned the room and waged a war on the audience.

The hero is a researcher trying to come out with a mechanical breakthrough but he spends most of his time in a low-end garage rather than in a University lab. The garage is infested with men who fool around and break into folk songs (courtesy 'RX 100' fame Laxman Meesala) at the drop of a hat. To be sure, these out-of-turn songs are the only reasonable thing in the movie.

The track involving the live-in couple comes undone by bizarre performances. The film is a factory of casting errors. If 'ETV' Prabhakar playing the heroine's father can give a heart-ache, you haven't yet seen who is the hero's father. Do you know which actor they roped in for the role? Fish Venkat. The hero's childhood is a parody, his parents are a parody, his slang is a parody, the film itself is a parody of a parody.

Satyadev, like composer Suresh Bobbili, takes the silly film way too seriously and delivers a Rajeev Kanakala-level performance. The only actor who sensed that the drivel needs to be treated without an ounce of respect is Bithiri Sathi, who repeats his 'Teen Maar' acts and fades out of the screen after getting bored.

Verdict:

'Guvva Gorinka' falls flat with a story that is shockingly childish. It's a run-of-the-mill, malnourished rom-com that hides its pointlessness behind lazy quirks and an 'Avunu, Valliddaru Ishta Paddaru!'-type premise.

Rating: 1 / 5.0
