Vennello Hai Hai

IndiaGlitz [Saturday, February 6, 2016 • Telugu] Comments

If Vamsi is that celebrated director with rare sensibilities, D Venkatesh is that producer with a penchant for being the force behind sensible entertainment.  Vennello Hai Hai was released this week after so many obstacles.  Starring Ajmal and Nikita Narayan in lead roles, the film delves into the sacred contract called marriage and the various aspects of that relationship.  However, since Vamsi hasn't been in the know of the latest trends and tastes, he lags behind in getting his old-style narration across to the new generation.  Ironically enough, it is the young generation which might have been targeted!

For a director of his stature, Vamsi should have selected something excitingly novel for his 25th film.  As much as the premise is exciting, and there is a twist in place, along with a good climax, the film doesn't cut.

Susheel (Ajmal) is a software engineer working in Mumbai.  He meets Sathya (Nikita Narayan of 'It's My Love Story' fame) in a train and gets betrothed to her soon.  However, when an astrologer says that Susheel must have been married already, he is shocked.  When he remembers that he married one Tanuja as a child, he sets forth to trace her out after seeking one month's time, failing which he promises to get wedded to Sathya.  Sathya accompanies him on his journey.

The rest of the film is about whether Susheel finds Tanuja and what happens to his engagement with Sathya.

As with all of Vamsi's films, this one, too, has good music.  Late Chakri has belched out nice musical score for the different situations.

As someone on a hunt for his childhood 'wife', Ajmal does a reasonably good job.  Nikita could have been better; her lip sync could have been better.

Some of the comedy scenes present an outdated concept, not to mention those dialogues which are meant to be comical, but which are at the level of a sub-par tv show's.

Perhaps because of budgetary constraints, the film is very poor visually, barring one or two songs.  The cinematography could have been much better, nevertheless.  Although Vamsi sets out to convey a strong message about the greatness of marriage, he is not supported by props like cinematography.

Like in all 'journey' films, this film too has characters coming in and going out of the story as the protagonist learns his lessons as and when required.

Verdict: With some better technical inputs and good writing in terms of dialogue, the film could have scraped through.

Rating: 2.25 / 5.0
