Kiran Abbavaram gained recognition with just three or four films. He has been churning out films one after the other. The latest release is “Nenu Meeku Baaga Kavalsinavaadini”.

Let’s find out its merits and demerits. 

Vivek (Kiran Abbavaram) is a cab driver. Teju (Sanjana Anand) is a software engineer and drinks a lot.

When Vivek saves her from her kidnap attempt, she tells him the reason why she became an alcoholic. Later, Vivek also narrates his love story to her.

Do their stories have a common element or thread? 

Artistes’ Performances:
Kiran Abbavaram is one of the best talents who got introduced to the Telugu cinema recently. He has an ease in acting. His dialogue delivery is also good. He has shown ease in mass steps and action but he should have not tried overt mass elements at this stage.

Sanjana Anand and Sonu Thakur lack the glamour appeal as well as the acting skills. Baba Bhaskar provides some comic relief.

SV Krishna Reddy in the role of the heroine’s father is okay.

Technical Excellence:
Mani Sharma’s songs are a major asset. Three songs are pleasant. The cinematography is decent. The writing (Kiran Abbavaram wrote the story and the dialogue) is nothing special.

Outdated plot
Silly Jokes
Poor direction
Second half

When an upcoming hero tries to move out of the image of boy-next-door and gain mass hero status, the films and stories invariably become bland. Many actors have done this in the past. With “Nenu Meeku Baaga Kavalsinavaadini”, Kiran Abbavaram does the same. 

We get to see the hero’s introduction as a cab driver, coming out of the shadows into the limelight. After his brief intro, he directly dances to an item song. When the item girl asks him who he is, we get the title - “Nenu Meeku Baaga Kavalsinavaadini.”

Such an outdated mass movie formula sets the tone for this film. But frankly, the first half of the film holds our interest. Twenty minutes after these mass moments, the film switches to a love story of the heroine. The heroine’s story is engaging. It episode has two lilting songs as well. The film goes smoothly till the interval. 

The trouble begins after the interval. The second half of the film eats a lot of time with the hero’s story getting unraveled and the conflict point coming very late giving a lethargic experience. The false drama, in the end, further mars the proceedings.

Even with the old story, the film could have been presented better way. Even if the director Sridhar Gade and writer Kiran Abbavaram recreated the same effect they did in the first half for the later portion, the film would have been different. 

Upcoming actors like Kiran Abbavaram needs padding from noted actors to hold our interest when the proceedings are not that interesting. 

All in all, “Nenu Meeku Baaga Kavalsinavaadini” suffers from the routineness and old wine in the old bottle approach to the second half. 

Bottom line: Old Wine
