Home videos are easy to make. One needs a camcorder, someone to wield it, and of course, a home. After a phenomenon called Hyderabad Blues, the addition of a random selection of faces to these necessities makes it a 'movie'.

Let's look at this one now. The camcorder ain't visible, though it makes its presence felt every time there are some inexplicable jerks. Applying some common sense to this brilliant deduction, we also managed to ascertain that there was someone wielding the aforementioned cam. And 'cos the Director is one ambitious chap, he has taken an entire apartment block as the 'home'. And lo! We have our 'apartment video' ready!

Now, this needs to look like a movie. So we have a story and all (not much of it, though), and actors... er, thingummyjigs who dress up (or undress) and mouth phony sounding lines.

Ravi (Naresh) and Aparna (Swetha) are childhood friends who do all the silly things childhood friends are supposed to do in Telugu films. Now enter one more girl, Ruchi (Neelambari), as love interest cum twist in non-existent story cum undressing backup for Aparna.

Now Ravi, a total dork who manages to be a nerd too when he finds the time, falls for Ruchi, and starts acting like a total jerk. Love, it seems, has its advantages. He manages to make a total fool of himself, which in itself is incredible. It's like a magician pulling a hat out of a hat.

Now Ravi has to patao Ruchi (hee hee haw haw!). Luckily for him, he is aided by Aparna, who writes letters with the eloquence of a sentenced man pleading for his life. The eloquence gets through to Ruchi, and she is all ready to neck with Ravi. The poor fish just doesn't get it though, as he thinks kisses are dry pecks on the cheek. God save Ravi.

Meanwhile, Aparna is revealed to be in love with Ravi herself. Goes to show the destructive tendencies of today's youth. She helps him nevertheless with his affair with Ruchi.

Finally the day arrives when Ruchi decides it's no use trying to teach the guy the basics of necking. So she decides that she might as well teach him the whole drill. But parents in movies have awful timing, and this bad timing saves Ravi's virginity and also makes the dolt realize it's Aparna and not Ruchi that he's in love with (no questions please).

The End.

We have already talked about the director and the camcorder (which goes under the title of cinematography). The songs are tolerable as long as you pretend you are seeing Necklace Road for the first time in your life. The hero does well as far as the total loser part is concerned. Looks like he's been practicing the part all his life. The girls look pretty and manage on clothing rations that may just have inspired the number 'Itsy Bitsy Teeny Weeny'. One could write a self-help book based on this one - "Do more with less... Hey! Who moved my camcorder?"

This movie just goes on and on. It tries to be a lot of things and fails. The comedy is substandard and so is the music. You haven't talked about the amateurish attempts at humour in this one at all. Especially the condom buying scene... It sux bigtime... when will Indian filmmakers grow up!

Awww.. c,mon guys, this is a shocker. Allari perhaps is one of the most entertaining movies released this year and who cares how the technicalities r? The basic funda of watchign a movie is to get entertained and thast exactly what this movie does. And another surprising things is that teh review doesnt mention anything abt. the picturisation of songs. Trust me, its nothing like u've seen on telugu screen before. It doesnt even point out the facts that the director is a famous ad film maker and has worked as a character artist in many amovie. Soorry man arpan, u goofed up this time around.

I did not like the review ,
some pharase like
'Itsy Bitsy Teeny Weeny'. may be thse are flashy , now a days
Who cares what kind of camera uses or what the angeles are, first of all, a review should be unbaised, I came here to read the reivew, but the review commented on techincal departments and some high figh english, which is hard to follow in a glance,
never mind , tried to be funny in the review like who moved my camery etc,
more pathetic is
using these lines
The hero does well as far as the total loser part is concerned. Looks like he's been practicing the part all his life
