Satyadev Kancharana holds the record for the maximum number of releases on OTT platforms as a solo lead hero in Telugu during the lockdown. In this pandemic period, his first movie to hit OTT space was Zee5 release 47 Days, followed by Uma Maheswara Ugra Roopasya, which streamed on Netflix. Now his third flick, Guvva Gorinka is streaming on Amazon Prime. Directed by Mohan Babu Bammidi, Guvva Gorinka features Priyaa Lal, Chaitanya, and Rahul Ramakrishna in prominent roles. Bankrolled by B Jeevan Reddy and Kosanam Damu Reddy, the music was composed by Suresh Bobbili and cinematography was handled by Maielsan Rangaswamy. The trailer certainly gave us a clue of what the film is all about, now let us get into the depths of it.

A love story of a couple who never met

Sirisha (Priyaa Lal), an aspiring graduate is obsessed with the violin. Though her parents want her to get married with the person of their choice and get settled, she promises to fulfill their request only after she completes a learning course in violin. She moves to Hyderabad to pursue her music learning where she happens to share a room next to Sadasivam (Satyadev). Sadasivam is a mechanical engineering graduate who is allergic to sound. The walls between their rooms are so thin that every minuscule sound is audible between them. In the process, they start talking with each other without meeting. They gradually get closer but decide not to meet. What happens towards the end is anyone’s guess.

Old-school romance is reminiscent of the 90s

The core plot is a hangover of the blockbuster 90’s movie, Kaadhal Kotai, starring Ajith and Devyani, where the boy and girl never meet each other but end up falling in love. However, director Mohan introduced a few contrasting elements between the lead pair and tried to convey a love story in the purest form. While his intent is good, the sluggish screenplay and flat narration mar the experience. However, if you are still a fan of 90’s based linear screenplay that has the main story and a comedy thread going in parallel, you might like this one. The majority of the movie is shot indoors and all the actors have played their parts well. The chemistry between Satyadev and Priyaa Lal is decent and worked in parts. While the comedy thread is dominated by Priyadarshi and Rahul Ramakrishna, Bithiri Sathi’s Arjun Reddy spoof is the best among the lot.

The youngsters may find it difficult to relate

While you decide to tell a story that is already told, you need an engaging screenplay to keep the audience glued. This is what was missing in Guvva Gorinka. Suresh Bobbili’s music is in sync with the plot. It is a challenging task for a cinematographer to showcase his talent when the majority of the movie is shot indoors. Mailesan passes this test with flying colors and his camera work is the best among the 24 crafts.

WATCH OR NOT

Guvva Gorinka is an amateurish love story that fails to engage once the main plot is revealed in the first 15 minutes. It drags here and there and the end is quite predictable. You may watch it once if you are a big fan of 90s romantic and films.
