Tollywood young hero Raj Tarun & Actress Hebah Patel’s latest film Andhagadu released worldwide on May 21st. The film is directed by Writer turned director Veligonda Srinivas and produced by Ramabrahmam Sunkara under the banners A.K. Entertainments Film. The film features Raj Tarun and Hebah Pate in lead roles, whileRajendra Prasad, Ashish Vidyarthi, Raja Ravindra, Sayaji Shinde, Satya and Paruchuri Venkateswara Rao in supporting roles.
Andhagadu is the comedy entertainer, Raj Tarun was seen as a visually challenging guy, He plays Love Doctor Goutham, a radio jockey. Hebah Patel is the love interest of Tarun. The film is the mix of comedy, action, romance and thrill. The movie’s story runs on a guy who falls in love with a girl and manages to gain her attention and also visually impaired.
Andagadu has a simple revenge plot in the end, but the way the director takes it to that point is superb. It is full of entertainment, and the narrative moves at a fast pace without stagnating at any point. Ideally, this is a perfect recipe for big success with good repeat value, but the director misses the bus due to the convoluted screenplay in the second half and lots of repetitiveness.
The scenes after the first song and before the pre-climax twist are stretched for too long. It almost could have killed the film with the second half curse, luckily that is not the case here. Once again after the pre-climax, the climax is not that strong. Overall due to the inconsistent narrative and recurring theme in the second half, Andagadu is at best a decent one time watch.
