Nani who has been in bad phase, coming up with two of his movies today on the auspicious day of Ugadi, telugu new year, one of the them is “Yevade Subrahmanyam” which falls into the genreof interstitial comedy. Whether Nani achieved a hit with the new attempt of his lets see.
Plot: Subrahmanya@Subbu(Nani) is a person who believes in Ambition, Status and money, He plans everything ahead and follows it without a miss, and on other hand his close friend Rishi(Vijay Devarakonda) believes in being happy, adventurous and lives for the moments, his only aim in life is to reach Dudh Sagar which is in Himalayas.
Both friends part ways in childhood, Nani is now on the verge of marrying Riya (Ritu), only daughter of Pasupathi Industries Chairman, here comes Rishi again in Subbu’s life, in comes Anandi (Manvika Nair) too. In one of the incident after a heated conversation Rishi lefts subbu, he dies in an unfortunate road mishap.
Nani without Interest only to get the shares which are needed to own Ramayya industries owned by Ramayya(Krishnam Raju) sets to go to Dudh Sagar with Anandi who wants to fulfill Rishi’s only wish. What happens next is the rest of the story, does they reach Dudh Sagar, Does Subbu found himself.
The film is simply a wonderful ride, Director choosen the best Protogonist to narrate this story of realization. Nani’s Subbu role etched in a such a way that many can apply themselves, and Nani too ably represented many confused souls. Film is all about soul searching and realizing what is enough and subtly tells you the truth that we are becoming restless to achieve which is not needed.
Film’s first half goes off in a predictable way, but the way the director with his team brought richness to film is really good, It is story of two friends having contrastingly different personalities and opinions of life, film is out and out philosophical story told in a liter tone.
Director haven’t followed any template, but seems to have drawn inspiration from Kalki’s role in Zindagi na Milegi Dobara, to write Ritu’s role. Apart from that he has told what he wanted to within the premise of the film.
Songs are too good, and lyrics complimented superbly to the same, Locations all top-notch it is least expected when you are picturing 50% of film in Himalayas.
Nani, we know what a lovely artist he is and he doesn’t disspoints in the film. His expressions in couple of scenes mesmerizes, I won’t reveal those two scenes. He has done well in both shades as Practical corporate employee and as realized human being.
Rishi is surprise package, as a fresher he breathed the needed emotion in to the movie. Manvika Nair, she looks dazzling with her beautiful eye, she is natural, and her performance too adds value to the film.
Ritu as a rich arrogant lady did a good job, Krishnam Raju garu is apt for the role, Nazar is limited. The guys who acted in the role pemba did an awesome job. Shoukar Janaki and Prathap Pothan appears in guest roles.
Director Nag Ashwin did a commandable job, but somehow left some dragging moments but the beauty of Himalayas covers for that. Music by Radhan is Awesome, Cinematography is life for the film, Editing though there are jumps, understandable. Finally Kudos to whole team for executing such an UPHILL Task literally.
A Good Experience
