Although Sunil recently delivered an average grosser with 'Jakkana', he didn’t do an out and out comedy in the recent times. He is missing out on comedy is the main complaint from the audiences.
To win back his fans and core audiences, he teamed up with Veeru Potla, the director known for packaging good entertainers like “Bindaas” and “Ragada”. Has the comedy worked out this time?
Bangarraju (Sunil), an orphan, brings bad luck to the employer he works for. One of his employers in Vijayawada sends him to Hyderabad just to avoid his presence.
As he steps in Hyderabad, he happens to meet a beautiful girl (Sushma Raj) and on the same day he helps a woman (Jayasudha) who starts treating him as her elder son.
A gang is after Bangarraju as he looks exactly like Sunil Varma, and they seek to know information about some idols that are hidden somewhere.
How Bangarraju lands in trouble due to his similarities with Sunil Varma is what this film is all about!
Sunil has been playing the similar roles recently. All his roles have turned out to be almost same and there is no difference in his acting.
Prudhvi has generated some good laughs in the second half when all the actors in the movie come to his farm house.
Shakalaka Shankar as a petty thief and Vennela Kishore as a Railway TC have done decent job.
Richa Panai and Sushma Raj have nothing much to do except exposing the skin. Naresh, Jayasudha, Aravind Krishna and Puneet Issar….all are just okay.
Sagar Mahati, Manisharma’s son, has come up with one catchy song that would appeal but on the whole the music is average stuff. Cinematography, editing and fights are just adequate. Production values are very bad. Writing and direction both are underwhelming.
Few Comedy Bits
Worst Production Values
Horrible Background Score
Director Veeru Potla is considered as a better filmmaker who could offer somewhat bearable comedies but he has come up with completely silly and outdated storyline. Logic has gone missing from the scene one.
By end of the interval, everyone’s feeling would be as clueless as the movie’s hero. All the scenes happen just for the sake of runtime.
The director has reserved some comedy (confusion comedy) and a twist in the later part of the movie. So till then he runs the film with songs, scenes that are too boring.
Hero who is orphan turns elder son to Jayasudha just because he helped her in one scene and he also starts calling her amma, and her son as his own brother.
A heroine who wants to settle in USA always meets him at a mall, or on road and falls for his love without knowing his background, also loves him for no reason.
Even the reason for a gang being after him thinking he is Sunil Varma seems a lame excuse to make him sing duets with two heroines. When twist about Sunil Varma is revealed in the second half, the total reason turns into a farce.
Then what works in the film. The movie becomes bearable in the second half. All actors board a train to catch Sunil Varma and the following scenes have evoked some good laughter.
The confusion comedy that arises from Prudhvi talking about hens with girls’ names and the people who are around assume he is talking about real girls and the situations that this leads to are hilarious. The farm house episode is a major relief.
There is plenty of glamour show by heroines. Richa Panai is completely seen in minis and the loud comedy is also aimed at B and C Center audiences. On the whole, “Eedu Gold Ehe” is loud and has old style comedy.
Bottom-line: Rolled Gold
