Verdict: A complete package for the family audience.

Entha Manchivaaadavuraa, starring Nandamuri Kalyan Ram and Mehreen Pirzada in lead roles, is directed by Satish Vegesna who earlier directed the hit movie Shatamanam Bhavati. The movie is an official remake of the Gujarati film titled Oxygen. Among the rest of the cast include Sarath Babu, Suhasini Maniratnam, Venella Kishore, Praveen, Rajeev Kanakala and Naresh in prominent roles. The music is composed by Gopi Sundar and cinematography is handled by Raj Thota. Produced by Aditya Music’s, Umesh Gupta and Subhash Gupta, Entha Manchivaadavuraa is the last movie to release this Sankranthi season. While the rest of the released movies are doing great business at the box office, let’s see if this season ends on a great note for the Telugu movie Industry.

What’s Entha Manchivaaadavuraa About:

Balu (Kalyan Ram) loses his parents after they meet with an accident when he was a young boy. Being an emotional person who thrives on his love for his family, Balu starts missing them. As he grows up, Balu starts an innovative agency titled “All is well: Emotions Suppliers”, who supplies a family member when someone is in need. The concept is to provide a relationship on hire. Nandini ( Mehreen Pirzada), his girlfriend, is also a part of this agency. Balu takes up a job of being a son to Tanikella Bharani. The issues they face and how Balu solves the family matters form the rest of Entha Manchivaadavuraa.

What Works:

Kalyan Ram has been in the best of his form in Entha Manchivaadavuraa. It is something new for him and he has carried it with élan. Mehreen Pirzada is cute in the role of Nandini and fits the bill well, opposite Kalyan Ram. Venella Kishore’s comedy works well and has brought in the much-needed laughter while the movie heads towards an emotional zone. Suhasini and Sarath Babu are apt as the couple who celebrate a successful silver jubilee anniversary. The rest of the cast is adequate. Director Satish Vegesna has been mastering the art of telling a story intertwined with genuine emotions. He has proved it earlier with Sathamanam Bhavati and Srinivasa Kalyanam. Irrespective of the box office status, he ensures that he tells his story the way he wants to and Entha Manchivaadavuraa is no different. Raj Thota’s visuals are splendid and Gopi Sundar’s album and background score touch the right chord. Bikkina Thammiraju’s editing is good. Aditya Music, who has forayed to production for the first time, have ensured that the scale of their debut venture meets their standards.

What Could’ve Been Better:

While the plot is novel, the narrative seemed slightly overdramatic at times.

Why You Should Watch:

Entha Manchivaadavuraa is a decent emotional family entertainer that can be watched by all sects of the audience. This Sankranthi has proven to be promising for the Telugu movie industry and is a wonderful start for the year with every movie doing well with the audience as well as at the box office.
