I honestly do not understand the logic behind Ravi Kandala's ratings. He has a peculiar taste in movies - neither is he inclined towards the arty films, nor can he be considered a part of the mass audience. This movie receiving a 6.5 is bizarre to say the least, considering Raghuvaran B.Tech., one of the best movies in recent times, received only a 5.5. Even movies like Manam, Oohalu Gusagusalade, Drushyam and Doosukeltha, which were were entertaining to say the least, recieved 5s and 6s from him.
On the other hand, a movie like Govindudu Andari Vadele, which barely had a semblance of a plot, received a 7! On top of that, the movie was universally panned by almost everyone.
Coming back to my rant regarding this movie receiving a 6.5, this is hands down one of the worst movies that has come out in the last few years. There is no plot, the songs pop up at all the wrong places and the screenplay is plain abysmal. It is sad that actors like Jr. NTR keep hamming it up instead of realizing that subtlety is their forte. His performance in Adhurs being a case in point. This movie also has that manadatory NTR scene where he assumes a humble posture and keeps lapping up all the blame for no fault of his. Lesser we speak about the "twist" and the ensuing "climax", the better. People seem to be shouting at each other instead of acting throughout the movie.
On a side note, how on Earth did this movie receive a U/A when a fun and a relatively lighthearted movie like Pataas received an A?
To sum up, this is not the elusive hit NTR is looking for, Puri Jagannath's Pokiri was a fluke, and this movie is a big crapfest. Stay away if you value your money.
Also, the management at fullhyd.com, if you see this post, please bring back Deepa Garimella, her reviews are the best.
Temper is NTR Jr's big comeback – or so said the director and the producer. The director talked about how you would forget NTR Jr from his previous movies and will see a new NTR. RGV went ballistic a couple of nights ago and tweeted something on the lines of how Sr NTR could learn a few things about acting from Jr NTR. If it were not for this hype, the movie would've probably gone down better.
Temper, like many other cop movies in Tollywood, shows a super-corrupt cop – Daya (NTR Jr). Daya is transferred from Hyderabad to Vizag at the behest of Valther Vasu (Prakash Raj), a ....
