After a disasterous Action 3D Minimum guarantee hero Allari Naresh’s coming forward with his new flick rom-com movie Kevvu Keka.
Storyline: Kevvu Keka about Buchhi (Allari Naresh), a salesman at Kalanikethan shopping mall. One day Buchhi attempts suicide and his uncle saves him. From then Buchhi starts expaining his uncle Magician Abrakadabra Appa Rao (Krishna Bhagwan) the reason behind his attempt.
In the Flash back, Buchhi falls in love with Maha (Shamila Mandre). Subba Rao (M. S . Rao) wishes to be rich over night by getting a rich son in law to teach a lesson to his owner Jagadamba (Kavitha).
Maha bluffs buchhi to be the owner of Kalanikethan shopping mall, but thinks turn around when facts are revealed. How Buchhi will marry Maha? Will his father accept his love? how Buchhi faces the challenges to get rich forms rest of the storyline.
Performances: Allari Naresh is fine in his role. Actress Sharmilla is disappointing. She looks fine , but somehow failed to pull the job. Krishna Bhagwan has major part to play and he does well. M.S.Narayana and Ashish Vidhyarthy are adequate. Jyothy and Kiran Rathod pleases with the meaty characterizations. Khayyum and Dhanraj characters are not fully developed. Mumaith Khan sizzles in the item number.
Technicalities: Kevvu Keka fails from the start as the comedy element dont work, the cast is imperfect and they don’t seem serious about their performances. It is so shabbily made that you will instantly feel that director Devi Prasad must have lost interest in the project in the beginning itself.
The technical department has done so badly in the film that not even one song is likeable. Mediocre efforts by the cinematographer A.Vijaya Kumar and the editor (by Nandamuri Hari) spoils the pace of the film. Dialogues by Satish Vegesna lack punch and there has been no rib tickling stuff. The main reason for this film’s steep fall can be attributed to the shabby work of the director and scriptwriter Devi Prasad. Even the plot is fairly predictable and there are no surprise elements to keep the audience glued to the screen.
Verdict: Within twenty minutes of the screening, Kevvu Keka makes the audience to scratch their head. It would be difficult to find some symmetry in the way the film moves on as sequence after sequence ends without an impact in the second half. Even the comedy sequences in the film involving bunch of comedians fails to provide any relief.
Overall, Kevvu Keka is a deadening watch, better avoid it.
Cinetara Rating: 1.5/5
