'Nuvvekkadunte Nenakkadunta' is two plus hours of sheer waste of time and money. Releasing after much delay the film unfortunately has not even one promising element that is worth talking about.

Uday Kiran who rose to fame with Teja's 'Chitram' and 'Nuvvu Nenu' unfortunately didn't even have one big hit after that. In a career spanning more than a decade, Uday never was consistent; his frequent disappearance from the industry actually paved way for his downfall. To add to his long but unsuccessful career is his latest film 'Nuvvekkadunte Nenakkadunta'.
Set around a stereotypical love story, NN revolves around soon-to-be-wed Uday who is rejected by his future wife because he's jobless. Uday packs bags and shifts base to the city in search of a job, where he falls head over heels for Shweta Basu the minute he lays eyes on her. He comes to learn that Bhadra, a local rowdy also longs for Shweta. What follows is the cat and mouse game between Uday and Bhadra, and who finally gets Shweta.
The borrowed plot from 'Final Destination' fails to make much of a difference. It doesn't connect with the viewers and thus doesn't make any impact. Uday as usual fares well in his role however due to a sloppy plot, his efforts go unnoticed. Shweta Basu's brief role is not as bubbly and lively as it was in 'Kotha Bangaru Lokam'. Her role lacked the panache and energy with which most of her roles were designed in the past. Comedy by Ashish Vidyarthi stands out and manages to paint few laughable moments.
Direction by Subha Selvam was lackluster however his attempt to bring some novelty through the borrowed plot from 'Final Destination' deserves a mention. Unfortunately, his attempt only backfires and results in a catastrophe.
Music by Pradeep Koneru was definitely not one among the best albums of this but definitely worth listening at least once. Comedy could've been one element that may have saved this film, had the director taken little effort to chalk out few sensible comedy scenes. Surprisingly, dialogues by Janardhan Maharishi were unsatisfying and so was cinematography that fails to captivate one and all.
