Chandra Siddhartha has bagged two Nandi Best Feature film awards for his previous venture Aa Naluguru and Andhari Bandhuvayya. The director is now back with the family entertainer Emo Gurram Egaravachu starring actor Sumanth and Pinky. But this time, his tried and test story and uninteresting narration bores and test the patience of the film goers.
Emo Gurram Egaravachu is romance drama and Sumanth's performance is the main highlight in the film. MM Keeravani's songs and amazing background score, Chandramouli's wonderful picturisation, Thagubothu Ramesh and Kanchi's comedy scenes are other big strengths of the film. The stale plot, boring narration and a few over the top scenes are the big drawbacks of the movie.
Firstly, Chandra Siddhartha has failed to choose an interesting and fresh story. Secondly, he has ignored some entertainer values. Emo Gurram Egaravachu kick-starts well and keep you engrossed in the narration for some time. But the tempo of the movie loses grip on the viewers after half an hour and it could not retain their interest till its end.
Bullebbai (Sumanth) is a village guy, who has failed to pass his 10th Standard exam even after his 14th attempt. His maradhalu Neelaveni (Pinki Savika), who stays in USA, comes to her native for a visit. Her parents want her to get married, but she rejects all their proposal. To escape from their pressure, she decides to gets engaged to Bullebbai.
After returning to USA, Neelaveni finds her Mr. Perfect in handsome and rich Indian doctor and decides to marry him. The story takes an interesting twist when she realises that she really loves Bullebbai. What happens next will form the rest of the crux of the story.
Sumanth has given brilliant performance Emo Gurram Egaravachu, but due some of his over the top scenes, you might end up disliking him. Pinki Sawika has also done her best and she looks cute. Thagubothu Ramesh and S.S.Kanchi manage to keep you entertained with their humourous moments. Annapurnamma and Harshavardhan and others have also done their best.
Emo Gurram Egaravachu has decent production values Chandramouli's picturisation is the main attraction in the technical front. A couple of Keeravani's songs and background score are also among the big assets of the film. But the editing is not up to the mark. Overall, the movie is an average fare, which you can watch once and ignore it.
