Comedy king Allari Naresh, who is all charged up with Sudigadu success, is back with Yamudiki Mogudu. This time, the actor has borrowed the title from Megastar Chiranjeevi 1988 movie. Directed by E Satti Babu, the movie had created a lot of curiosity among the film goers and it lives up their expectations.
Yamudiki Mogudu is a socio-fantasy film with lots of comedy, and Allari Naresh's perfect comedy timing is the main attraction in the film. E Satti Babu's interesting screenplay, Kranthi Reddy's funny dialogues, decent graphics work, Koti's music, Ravindra Babu's cinematography and beautiful art work and costumes are its other highlights. The biggest drawback of the film is its slow-paced narration in the second half, which is the result of the overdose of sentiment scenes.
The first half of Yamudiki Mogudu is very interesting with lot of comedy, funny-one liners and a few romantic songs. But with everything revealed before the interval bang, the movie turns dragging due to more than required emotional quotient. But the climax of the movie is interesting and gives solace to the viewers. Continue to read the Yamudiki Mogudu movie review in slide show.
Due to the mistake of Lord Brahma (Chalapati Rao), Naresh (Allari Naresh) takes birth without Talarata (fate). The powers of Gods does not affect him. As he fails to succeed in studies, he settles as a drama artist. Meanwhile, Narada (Senior Naresh) decides to rectify his father's mistake. So he makes Naresh marry Yamaja (Richa Panay) the daughter of Lord Yama (Sayaji Shinde).
Upset Yama sends his son Yamaganda (Master Bharat) and Chitragupta (Krishna Bhagawan) to the earth to bring her back. Will they be able to bring them back? What happens next will form the crux of the story.
As usual, Allari Naresh has done his character with eloquent ease. He has maintained perfect comedy timing and shown equal ease in dance and love sequences and when it comes to the family emotions during the climax. His chemistry with the heroine works out well.
Richa Panay improved her acting skills when it compared with her earlier films. She is sexy and romantic in her appearance and perfectly suited to Naresh's personality and proved a correct selection by the director opposite the hero.
Though the characterisation of Lord Yama has gone overboard a little, the audiences take it for granted as it is a comedy flick. Comedy track between Master Bharat and Krishna Bhagawan is hilarious.
Ramya Krishnan has proved that she is necessary for the film and she appears during the last 10 minutes of the climax. Chandramohan, Tanikella Bharani, Jyothi, Raghu Babu and others have done justice to their roles.
Yamudiki Mogudu has sound production values and art work and VFX are the main highlight in the technical front. Koti's music, Ravindra Babu's camera work and Gautham Raju's editing are also good.
The best among all the departments is dialogues. Kranti Reddy Sakinela has penned beautiful one-liners for Naresh and some other characters and they evoked fantastic comedy and made the audiences to burst into laughter in the theatres and even after recollecting while returning home.
Director Sattibabu has failed to handle the subject properly and mostly depended on earlier films like Yamagola, Yamaleela and Yamudiki Mogudu. His screenplay in the second half is mediocre and there is no newness in the second half. Especially, the climax and pre-climax were absurd. The production values of Friendly Movies are superb.
Remarks: Watch the film till the second half and return home. The entire second half is boring but for a few scenes. Of course, to listen to Kranti Reddy Sakinala's one liner dialogues, you can stay back and nothing more.
