After the runaway success of the film Vinayakadu in 2008, Krishnudu did a lead role in its sequel Villagelo Vinayakudu. Now, his latest movie Pappu has released. The movie also features Subbaraju and Deepika in the leads. The movie is produced by Nagesh Yadav and Praveen Reddy Nalla.
Pappu (Krishnudu) is a chap, whose luck always turns good for others and it backfires him. Slowly with the age, his subconscious rules his mind towards pessimism, as a result he loses his self confidence. Meanwhile, Radha (Deepika), daughter of his boss, enters his life. He falls in love with her, but he hesitates to propose fearing he might lose her. Once Radha gets kidnapped and her father gets an advice from an astrologer that her luck is not so good, so to deal with the issue, her father should send an unlucky person for her safe arrival. Her father appoints Ram (Subbaraju) and Pappu to search and bring his daughter back to him. What happens next is the interesting part of the story.
Krishnudu's performance in the film is excellent that is clearly visible in his acting, dance and fight scenes. Subbaraju, who has been doing negative role, has got a lengthy role and his performance is reasonably okay. Deepika has the talent and she has done justice for her role.
Phani Kalyan's music is not up to the mark. Only two tracks can be appreciable. Director Pasuparthi has failed in his screenplay. He would have tightend the screenplay in the first half, at times audience feel boring and story is predictable. Ram-Lakshman's stunts have come out very well and they have worked hard with Krishnudu. Editing and cinematography are average.
Verdict: The movie is a time pass movie and it doesn't offer anything new.
