Review: Premalo Padite - Please do not
Hyderabad: 'Ee Rojullo' which proved to be a run-away hit at the Tollwyood box-office must have prompted producer Suresh Kondeti to present 'Premalo Padithe' besides the film being directed by Balaji Sakthivel, the man who directed Kondeti's first presentation in Telugu, 'Premisthe'.
Kondeti's last film, 'Renigunta' took some drubbing at the box-office and just because a certain 'Ee Rojullo' raked in the moolah it doesn't mean that you can cash in on the trend by forgetting that there is something called script which makes a film.
Venu (Sri), who has no other options left in order to free his family from debts joins a firm at a very young which specialises in making eatables. The owners of the firm fail to tell Venu that his parents are dead after he toils there for six years without having a glimpse of his them. He then runs away from the firm only to join as a boy who looks after a daily breakfast outlet.
Venu falls for Jyothi (Urmila), a maid in an apartment. He is desperate to propose her but lacks guts. Then there is another story which is interlinked to Venu's story. Son of a wealthy mother, Nitesh (Mithun Murali), smart and cunning woes young collegian Aarthi (Manisha Yadav) in order to make a video of her.
Posing as a decent guy he makes her to fall for him before accomplishing his task but Aarthi comes to terms with his plans and starts avoiding him. Nitesh has his workout against Aarthi and one of his actions affects Jyothi. What happens next?
Adjusting your seats for the first five minutes of the film, you are greeted with loud voice of the characters- dubbing of certain characters doesn't fall into place.
Director Balaji Sakthivel chooses a plot which addresses many issues- a firm which hardly lets teens get out of their organisation, police system favouring the rich and the affluent and teens who are keen on making videos of girls just for fun.
All this things fall on the heads of Venu and Jyothi, who are helpless and have no idea of how the courts function in the first place. You can symapthise with the characters but connecting to them is a difficult task.
Balaji's attempts might have taken the story forward but not a single moment of the film is outside the clich'd box. You can get a hangover of the things to follow. Slowly, the audience will sync with the soothing sad melody. With too many issues propped up too many problems for the maker.
To make the matters worse, it is the acting debut of Suresh Kondeti, sorry, dancing debut of the producer.
Expressionless and graceless, he dances to the title song, Premalo Padithe which is on the lines of 'Ee Rojullo' title song. Taking home, there are hardly any moments from the film except for the natural performances of the lead.
Rounding up, 'Premalo Padithe' is too pale an outing that can be avoided on the big screen. An example of not rushing in on the trend when you don't have solid content to back you up. Don't fall in love, not yet.
