Veedu Theda' fails is an excruciating experience
Haricharan Pudipeddi Mon, 21 Nov 2011
You love some films, you hate some films and you don't want to talk about few films; 'Veedu Theda' unfortunately falls in the third category. With no popular names associated with the film, VT boasts a bunch of small time artistes, whose presence only irks you throughout the film. Quite popular for his guy-next-door type of roles, Nikil Siddhartha returns in yet another meaty role in 'Veedu Theda'.
A happy-go-lucky guy is Katti Seenu aka Nikil Siddhartha, who accompanies his little older friend to a wedding to help him woo a girl. In the process, both friends fall for the same girl, Meghna. With a soul dream of becoming IAS officer and dedicating her life for the service of the underprivileged, Meghna loathes love. However, Incorrigible Seenu attempts to befriend her with his cheap tricks, eventually failing. Few minutes before interval, Meghna gets apprehended by some goons and our hero sets out to save her. What follows is how our hero saves the girl and wins her heart?
The film serves humor in bit and pieces, but overall the writing is loud but not witty. The presentation of the film is also below average, but at least the performance by Nikil is worth talking about and saves the film from a fatal fall. The story is boring and repetitive, and we have seen it a million times in Tollywood. Boy likes a girl, girl ignores him, boy saves girl from some kind of danger and she's all head over heels for him. I mean, we have seen so many films on the similar story line and 'VT' sadly has nothing new to offer.
The comedians, Ali, M.S Naryana, Brahmanandam and Master Bharath bring life in to the film by providing entertainment. These artistes provide some rib-tickling moments that would make you sit back and laugh it out loud. However, there are also moments that would make you curse yourself for having walking in to the theatre to watch the film.
Though the film has low budget written all over it, that didn't mean even the quality of the film would be low. You minimize your budget, but not the quality of the film. You have low budget for two reasons; firstly, if the film doesn't do well, then you'd have lost meager amount and secondly, if you have plans of making another film, then you can as well go ahead and make it. The direction was completely awful; it was as though you had handed over a camera to a school kid and asked him to shoot a film. It's hard to say which group/gang this film will attract because all that this film offers in the name of entertainment is some cheap, sick one-liners.
