One more low budget flick that skipped the theatrical release and took the OTT route is Buchinaidu Kandriga Thurpu Veedhi. Starring debutantes Munna and Drushika Chander in lead roles, the movie is written and directed by Krishna Poluru. The other supporting cast includes C/O Kancharapalem fame Subbarao (Raju), Prabhavati, Ravi Varma, Pavithra.
Will take you back to the 90’s
Balu (Munna) and Swapna (Drushika Chander) hail from a village named Buchinaidu Kandriga in Nellore district and live in the same street. Balu likes Swapna since his childhood and finally reveals his love to which Swapna accepts. While Swapna’s father finds a match for her, the couple elope to Mysore and get married. What hurdles they face after that forms the rest.
Debutantes and the supporting cast does it right
Munna and Drushika were apt teenage lovers and did their part well. Their chemistry worked pretty well and there is freshness when you see them together on screen. Subbarao was given a meaty role and was excellent in his act. Ravi Varma as the main antagonist performed well and the rest of the cast including newcomers were equally good.
The technical crew stayed true to their job
For sure, writer-director Poluru Krishna had a hangover of the 90’s and was able to effectively capture that era. The movie begins on a promising note with Pawan Kalyan’s dialogues from the climax scene of Suswagatham playing in a tape recorder. Subbarao’s character reminds us of Raghuvaran from Suswagatham who does anything for their son’s happiness and sees a tragic end. The interval shot was innovatively captured coinciding with the interval slide of a running movie. All the songs are melodious and don’t hinder the narrative. The visuals are captured pretty well and the editing is crisp in a runtime of just over 2 hours. In a nutshell, the technical crew stayed true to their job by delivering a decent product that was made under a restrained budget. All in all, this movie is yet another love story that we are used to watching in the bygone era.
WATCH OR NOT
While Buchinaidu Kandriga Thurpu Veedhi is a love story set in the 90’s, the narration and direction pattern reminds you of the love stories made during that time as well. If you want to reminisce the past time love stories, then this one is for you. Else, you may skip it.
