Nara Rohith’s Savitri : Movie Review

Savitri (Nanditha) is crazy about weddings. She is desperate to get married to somebody as she can’t wait any longer and wants see her own wedding ceremony. When her elder sister gets married, her father (Murali) and uncle (Ajay) start scouting for groom for her. And they come across a doctor who they think could be a perfect match for Savitri. And as she heads to Shirdi, on the train, she meets Rishi (Nara Rohith), a doctor, who immediately falls in love with her. Savitri doesn’t reciprocate his love, but harbours a soft corner for him. Rishi professes his love for her, but she flatly rejects it and heads home. And it’s then that the drama shifts to her home, which makes up the rest of the film.

Nara Rohith dons the role of a lover boy, but it doesn’t go well with his body language. At times, he appears uncomfortable in his part, but comes up trumps in the action scenes.

Nanditha essays the role of Savitri with great panache. Ajay acquits himself very well in the film. Dhanya Balakrishna doews justice to her role, though a brief one. Vennela Kishore tickles your ribs, while Prabhas Seenu, Rajesh, Ravi Babu and other actors merely make the cut.

Though the film starts off well and the heroine’s obsession with weddings is portrayed well, the trouble begins thereafter, when she boards a train to go to Shirdi. From then till the interval, the drama unfolds during the train journey to Shirdi with silly jokes, meaningless scenes and many fights. This one and half hour episode bores the audience to death.

Posani Krishna Murali as Lord Krishna is frivolous and the character lacks sense.

After the interval, the drama shifts to heroine’s village near Visakhapatnam. Although the face-offs between heroine’s father (played by Murali) and hero are quite interesting, the story moves at a slow pace boring the audience to no end.

Apart from some sequences before the climax, even the second half doesn’t evoke any interest. But it’s worth watching.
