Ulavacharu Biryani does not have the ingredients in it to make the meal tasty. Its like you wake in to a restaurant and order a beautiful and end up with out finishing half of it.
Kalidasu (Prakash Raj) is a bachelor architect who lives along with his friends and Gowri (Sneha) is a dubbing artiste who is also unmarried. One day, a tried Gowri orders for a dosa to Kalidasu (Wrong Number). The misunderstanding later blooms in to friendship as they share interest in Culinary. Later on they fall in love. The entire sequence of events leading to their love and subsequently getting united forms the rest.
Prakash Raj is neat and elegant as usual as every time. He is good fit in to the role of an aging bachelor. Sneha is back with a bang after a long gap. She lived up in the role of Gowri. Tejus and Samyuktha Hornad make a good pair. While Tejus is okay, Samyuktha makes mark with her expressions. MS Narayana and Brahmaji are not of much effect due to the poorly written roles.
Ulavacharu Biryani is a remake of Malayali film, Salt and Pepper. The film is a very delicate love story with an interesting subject. However Prakash Raj failed to execute the subject properly. The movie goes on a dead slow pace and on expected lines.
Both music and background score by the Maestro remains as highlights of the film. Cinematography by Preetha, dialogs by Vallabha are impressive. Production values are decent.
Finally, Ulavacharu Biryani does not have the ingredients in it to make the meal tasty. Its like you wake in to a restaurant and order a beautiful and end up with out finishing half of it.
