Naruda Donaruda Telugu Movie
Infertility Specialist, Dr. Anjaneyulu is on a look out for a young man whose sperm has that 100% Strike Rate. He comes across Vikram aka Vicky, a young lad whom he feels will be that man he is looking man. After a lot of initial resistance, Vicky who hails from a lower middle class back ground, agrees to be the Sperm Donor for some quick bucks and as expected his Sperm Count is just perfect. Later he falls for a Bengali Divorcee Ashima Roy (Pallavi) who works in a Bank. Initially, both the families do not accept for the marriage but finally gives in. After months of wonderful moments, their life takes a sudden twists as Ashima has a health issue and Vicky's Sperm Side is revealed.
Tanikella Bharani and Sumanth (to some extent) have tried to infuse some energy into this movie but could not do justice to the tempo the subject commands. Pallavi is okay in her debut movie. Senior actress Sri Lakshmi as Sumanth's mother is good. Suman Shetty is okay.
Vicky Donor (2002) was a blockbuster back then for the way the subject of sperm donation is handled with dash of humor and emotionality. It is a difficult subject to be taken up in Telugu due to our society inhibitions about the topic. So, the makers should be appreciated for taking up the challenge. But then Telugu Version directed by newcomer Mallik Ram, could not be as efficient as the Original. The starting itself is a problem with its loud dialogues and cheap production values. Things fall in groove slowly and is enjoyable till the interval. But since the interval, things take a toss as story and screenplay goes ups and downs with many lengthy and unnecessary scenes. Some of the scenes like Bengali Vs Telugu, Marriage Scenes are dragged beyond the necessary limits. The confrontation scene between the couple after Vicky's past is revealed was amateurish while the black money episode is totally illogical.
Music by Sri Charan Pakala is a drab so is the back ground score. The writing is too loud at places and is good in some other places. Cinematography and artwork is plain. Production Values are worse than some of the worst Short films. Most of the film was canned in Annapurna Studios.
Finally, Naruda Donoruda is that kind of remake which is loyal only to the story of the Original but falls behind totally in the crucial execution part. Except for Tanikella Bharani's role, nothing is even close to the Original. The director's inexperience made sure that the essence is lost in the recreation.
