Verdict: Beautiful love stories between five hearts.
Naanna Nenu Naa Boyfriends starring Hebah Patel, Rao Ramesh, Ashwin, Noel Sean, Parvateesam and Tejaswi Madivada in lead roles is directed by Bhaskar Bandi and produced by Bekkam Venugopal. When Dil Raju announced that he will be releasing this movie across the Telugu states, expectations rose around this film. But were they justified?
Padmavati alias Padhu (Hebah Patel) is the only daughter of her parents, after five years of their marriage. Padhu’s father (Rao Ramesh) loves his daughter more than anything else; he will even sacrifice his MP’s seat to his brother for her. After learning from an astrologer that she will not listen to him, he starts loving her more and lives for her. Though Padhu fails in her engineering exam, her father lies to her that she has passed, and allows her to look for a job in Hyderabad as she requests. Padhu lies to her parents that she is in love with a person who is in the US and that he will be returning to India after six months. Her parents agree to the match and tell her that if there are any issues with her relationship, then they will look out for a boy for her. Padhu stays with her friend Maggi (Tejaswi Madivada) in Hyderabad and finds three boys Gokul (Noel Sean), Eela Nani (Ashwin) and Namo Sastry (Parvateesam). She decides to choose the best of them and convince her parents for marriage. Who will Padhu fall in love with? Will her parents agree to the marriage of her choice? Is there a twist in the tale? To find out, you need to watch Naanna Nenu Naa Boyfriends.
Rao Ramesh and Hebah Patel stole the show with their mesmerizing performances. Rao Ramesh as Padhu’s father is a treat to watch. Noel Sean as a basketball player did justice to his role, as did Ashwin as an up and coming police officer, and Parvateesam as temple priest. Tejaswi Madivada also got a decent role as Padhu’s friend and is good in her role. Dhanraj is seen in a few scenes and is able to evoke some laughter. Rest of the cast is adequate.
Direction by Bhaskar Bandi is good. Special credit needs to be given to Prasanna Kumar Bezwada for his smooth screenplay without any confusion, and the fantastic dialogues. The scenes between the father and the daughter are the highlight of the film. Cinematography by Chota K. Naidu is, as usual, excellent. Some care should have been taken for the initial part of the second half as it seemed a bit routine.
Why You Should Watch This Movie:
If you are a fan of clean and entertaining family dramas, then this one is for you. You can easily watch it with the entire family.
