‘Where Is The Venkatalakshmi’ Movie Review
Lakshmi Rai’s Where is the Venkatalakshmi has been promoted since the movie launch and now, the film has hit the screens today. Let’s review it!
Cast: Laxmi Raai, Praveen, Madhu Nandan, Pujita Ponnada, Brahmaji and Others
Director: Kishore Kumar
Chanti Gadu(Praveen) and Pandu Gadu(Madhu) are brothers who are sluggards. They create a lot of problems in the village. One day, a teacher in the form of Gauri(Lakshmi Rai) comes to their village. The two brothers like her and try to impress her. One fine day, they will come to know that Gauri is a ghost who is trying to get a box from the baddies. She orders Chanti and Pandu to bring the box. How these two brothers manage the situation forms the rest of the story.
The film is a plus to both comedians Praveen and Madhu. Both of these actors performed well in their own way. Lakshmi Rai looks glamorous and performed well in her role, though there is nothing much for her to do in the second half. Poojita Ponnada is awesome in the film as she equally manages both glamour and performance. The first half has a good amount of emotion and fun.
The director disappointed people with outdated comedy in a few scenes. The film could be executed much better. The person who acted as a villain didn’t have a strong presence. His role seems silly. Overall, the second half could be improvised.
Director didn’t utilize the script in a proper manner. Production values are superb and Cinematography is excellent. Though music is good, BGM is routine.
- Praveen and Madhu performance
- Actresses Glamour
- Production Values
- Second Half
Verdict: Though Praveen and Madhu tried their best to support the film, the second half which has nothing, spoiled the film. Except for a few comedy scenes and actress’ glamour, there is no proper reason to watch the film.
