Dil Raju, who earlier produced path-breaking youthful entertainers like Aarya and Kotha Bangaru Lokam, is again coming with a promising youthful flick, Kerintha. Let us see if his midas touch has anything to do with the film.
Well! That's exactly where the film failed. Kerintha is a story of few friends, who meet at their post-graduation level. The highs and lows of their friendship, love life and a chase for dreams forms the crux of the story. It lacks a refreshing plot and is highly inspired from Happy Days and 3 Idiots.
Sumanth Ashwin has put in his 100 percent to play a matured character but his boyish looks and body language played a spoil sport. Especially, he must take some extra care while dealing with the emotional scenes.
Sri Divya certainly has nothing much to do than throwing a sweet smile. The easiest way to impress right? Tejeswi Madivada has got a good role to play and was skilled enough to pull it off. The girl who played Bhavana is hear to stay and was pretty impressive in portraying the role she was offered. The one played Nookaraju did his job well though his character was too cliched.
Kerintha is a technically rich film and the cinematography takes the pedestal. Beautiful locales, eye candy colors and some attractive art work made the film look fresh in each frame. Music and background score by Mickey J Mayor surely enhanced the feel and setting of the movie.
Dil Raju made sure every penny he spent on the film appears on screen. However, the film must have had a script doctor. Director Sai Kiran Adivi was lucky enough to get a nod from Dil Raju for such routine script.
He was pretty perfect in execution but the content is what is lacking in the film. Rotten drama between the friends, monotonous conflict points, cliched dialogues failed big time in registering any impact.
Though the film has had its share of lows, it is surely entertaining. After all that complaints, that is what matters. Kerintha has nothing new to offer but it is a good mix of moments and hence the film might work well with its target audience.
Love At First Sight
Jai(Sumanth Ashwin) falls for Manswini(Sri Divya) at the first sight.
Sid And Priya
Sid and Priya ( Tejeswi) make a pair but will distance herself from him because of his rude behaviour in the later half of the film.
She played a matured character, who aims to go to Australia to chase her dreams.
Kerintha had its share of moments which will bring a sweet smile on your face.
The catchy and melodious songs were a major plus for the film.
On the whole, the film would work great with the college going audience, since they can relate to the characters very easily.
