Verdict: A cute teenage love story.
Nirmala Convent introduces several actors and technicians to Telugu film industry that includes the hero, the director, the supporting cast, the singer, the music director, the producer and many more. When a movie is made with many new talents, one can expect a feel of freshness. Added to it is the trailer that raised curiosity among the audience. Let’s see if the team has come out with a winner.
The movie starts with Shanti (Shriya Sharma) waking up at midnight and waiting for Samuel (Roshan Meka) to take her away. In the meanwhile, she starts narrating why he is the greatest lover in the world. Shanti’s family members are the feudal lords of their village Bhupatipalem. Samuel’s family are poor farmers in the same village. There are no good terms between these families from a few generations. Shriya and Samuel are classmates from childhood in the school Nirmala Convent. Samuel is very studious and as time goes, they both fall in love with each other. Will their parents agree their relation? What did Samuel do to win her lady love? Why is Samuel considered to be the most perfect lover for Shriya? All these factors form the rest of story.
For the first time, Nagarjuna and Nimmagada Prasad have jointly produced a movie and they didn’t leave any stone unturned to publicize the movie. Nagarjuna also turned singer for this movie and extensively promoted the song that, in turn, did good publicity for the movie. Roshan Meka, son of actor Srikanth, could not have asked for a more promising debut than Nirmala Convent. All things seem to have fallen in place for this youngster and he has excelled in his acting, thus leading to a promising debut. Shriya Sharma is familiar to people as a child artist and this is her first movie as a lead heroine. She has given a good performance and the lead pair looked cute throughout the movie. Nagarjuna’s special appearance acted as a catalyst to the movie and made the second half more interesting. The basic plot is inspired by Slumdog Millionaire.
Direction by G. Naga Koteswara Rao is good and didn’t look like this was his debut movie. Though the story is old, he succeeded in narrating the movie in a gripping manner. Music by debutante Roshan Saluri is nice. All the songs are melodious and the background score could have been better. Cinematography by Visweshwar is spending and all the frames looked colorful. Production values by Matrix Team Works and Annapurna Studios are praiseworthy.
Why You Should Watch This Movie:
Watch it for its freshness and the efforts put in by all debutantes. Overall, Nirmala Convent is a cute teenage love story told in a fascinating way.
