Right Right Movie Review

Have we reached a stage where someone thinks the 2012 Malayalam movie 'Ordinary' has something in it to be remade into a movie for the Telugu audience?  Is the Telugu film industry so starved of ideas?  Definitely not. Just that we have juvenile infatuation toward hits in other languages.

'Right Right' tells the story of one Ravi (Sumanth Ashwin) and Seshu ('Kalakeya' Prabhakar), a bus conductor and a driver, respectively.  New to the town of Gaviti, Ravi bonds well quite fast with Seshu.  Seshu doesn't hurt any, all that he knows is how to enjoy writing poetry (that is, drinking liquor.  Yes, at one point, JB's BGM when Seshu is drinking makes us wonder if he thinks Seshu is writing poetry).  While Ravi takes pleasure in simple things like joking with the regulars among the commuters in his bus (among them, Vishwanath 'master', played by Nasser, and a listless drunkard, played by Dhanraj), Seshu's favourite past time apart from boozing is courting beautiful girls in the town.

What disturbs their otherwise peaceful life (complete with Ravi's love affair with his sweetheart, played by Pooja Zaveri) is the shockingly gruesome murder of Nasser's son.  The needle of suspicion falls on Ravi and Seshu when circumstantial evidence works against them.

Ravi has only one choice left.  What is that?  How does he use it to uncork the mystery and prove his innocence?  That forms the crux of the second half. 

A remake of the Malayalam film 'Ordinary' (2012), nothing is right with 'Right Right'.  What is it with the screenplay?  Do you expect the audience to be excited by a hero who catches hold of the link man (the jeep driver) in a jiffy?  In real life, even an SI would find it more difficult to catch hold of a black tickets seller at the local theatre.

Sumanth Ashwin has accepted a story with no gravitas even when his character is staring at a life term.  Despite that, the actor does his job earnestly, with all sincerity.  The downside of acting in a colourless script is that ones acting talent doesn't come out fully.  He is not helped a bit by a director who is out of sync with the tastes of the Telugu audience.  Thus, he makes the hero act like a greenhorn actor of the '90s era.  Watch him say, 'Kani.. kani.. ee hathya chesindi', for example.

Dhanraj as a drunkard is seen in a least rib-tickling role.  Tagubothu Ramesh is beyond recognition.  Shakalaka Shankar is dumb.  Nasser is the only actor who acts like himself.  The others are not let to be themselves.  Bharat Reddy and the actor who played Bhadra's character are convincing.  Pavani Gangireddy once makes an impact after films like 'Malli Malli Idhi Rani Roju'.  Pooja Zaveri needs to glam up.

As for the technical departments, JB's songs, especially 'Penumantallo Chiruguvv' and 'Alli Billi' are nice.  As for the BGM, Manu doesn't let him dish out the prevalent style of music.

Verdict: The narration is milk and water.  Dramatized performances are the last straw that break the camel's back.
