Pavan Wadeyar debuted as director in Kannada with the movie Govindaya Namaha. Besides wonderful script and direction, his unique marketing strategy made this movie a big hit in the Sandalwood Box Office. After delivering another hit with Googly in Kannada, he is foraying into Tollywood with Potugadu, a remake of his first directorial venture, which is a comedy drama featuring funnyman Komal Kumar. The movie is sure to rock the Telugu audiences.
Potugadu is a romantic comedy with very high entertainment quotient. Manchu Manoj's rocking performance is the main attraction in the film. Pawan's unique script, interesting narration, funny dialogues, comedy stars' performances, Achu Rajamani's hit music and background score, Srikanth's stylish picturiasion and good choreography of songs and fights are other highlights of the movie.
This movie is about two dejected young men, who meet each other, while they are about to commit suicide and share love stories. When compared to Govindaya Namaha, the director has made several changes in the plot as well as characterisation in Potugadu to suit the taste of the Telugu audience. With its promos soaring up viewers' expectations to the sky high, the director has made sure that he will live upto them.
Potugadu is a roller-coaster ride right from the beginning till end and it tickles the funny bones of the film goers. The director has included commercial ingredients and has a good grip over the happenings on screen. The first half of the movie is quite racy, funny and entertaining with lot of comedy and romance. Pawan is successful in maintaining the pace of this joy ride in the second half too. The climax is also very interesting.
