Sathi Gani Rendu Ekaralu, Aha’s newest movie, has finally debuted on the OTT platform after numerous delays. Jagadeesh Prathap, of Pushpa fame, plays the lead in the Abhinav Danda-directed film. So let’s check it out.
In Kolluru, Sathi (Jagadeesh Prathap) resides with his wife Andamma (Mohana Sree), and their two kids. He works as an auto driver and only has two acres of land. Unfortunately, his daughter has a heart condition, and the surgery will cost him a fortune. He sells his farm since he has no other choice, but one day he discovers a briefcase filled with priceless stones. Sathi approaches his friend and fellow burglar Anji (Raj Tirandas) for assistance in selling the stones. What took place next? Who is the true owner of these priceless stones? Did Sathi save the life of his daughter? The story’s core is in part comprised of this.
As a father trying to raise money for his daughter’s surgery, Jagadeesh Prathap offered a heartfelt performance. He has good looks and wonderful body language, and he seems quite natural during the entire movie.
Vennela Kishore, however, steals the night with his dry humor. His antics make people laugh and provide the audience with a little pleasure. Taj Tirandas, Aneesha Dama, and Mohana Sree all perform admirably in their respective parts.
The comic sequences in the opening hour of the movie work in certain places. The music composer did a nice job, and the background music gives off a peculiar sensation.
Due to the weak script, what would have otherwise been solid comic entertainment fell short of expectations. The writing prevented the story from becoming a fun and crazy journey, despite the fact that the story contains enough material to do so.
There are some really funny parts that will make the audience laugh, but as the film goes on, the entertainment value gets lower and lower. The second hour of the movie is entirely made up of dull scenes, and here is where the movie completely went wrong. The sequences don’t add anything to the narrative or delight us.
The even worse flaw is how horribly the climax is handled. Despite the fact that there was talk of a second installment, the movie’s ending left a lot to be desired. It conveys a sense of being lacking.
Jay Krish’s background music lends the proceedings a fun and whimsical feel. The production values and Vishwanath Reddy’s camera work are both acceptable. Editing is adequate. A handful of the dialogues are humorous and well-written.
Abhinav Danda, the film’s writer, and director, did a merely adequate job. His plot had a lot more promise for humor and excitement, but the film only occasionally manages to be entertaining. The second hour and climax could have been given greater attention by the filmmakers, and the movie might have ended up being a laugh riot.
Overall, Sathi Gani Rendu Ekaralu provides a few laughs and has Jagadeesh Prathap’s sincere performance. Despite Vennela Kishore’s strong performance, the screenplay prevents the movie from progressing further. Sathi Gani Rendu Ekaralu is therefore only a passable movie to watch this weekend.
