Naruda DONORuda Review, What’s Behind: Akkineni camp hero Sumanth’s re-entry after a 2 year gap with ‘Vicky Donor’ remake developed a buzz for this project starring Tanikella, Pallavi Subhash as other main leads. How far their effort to translate the essence in Bollywood sperm donation concept into Telugu worked? Let’s know it in following review.
Naruda DONORuda Story: Vicky (Sumanth), an unemployed young guy living with no big purpose in life has a widow grand ma and widow mother (Rajya Lakshmi). Family survives on a beauty parlor business to make both ends meet. Dr Aanjaneyulu (Tanikella) running an infertility clinic in old city searching for a super strong sperm donor comes across Vicky and his sturdy seeded family tree. In no time, Vicky starts selling his sperm to Aanjaneyulu filling the joy in lives of childless couples. It’s a win-win for Vicky and Aanjaneyulu as both grow rich.
In parallel, Vicky falls in love with a divorcee bank employee Aashima Roy (Pallavi Subhash). Hiding the actual sperm business, Vicky marries her and problems begin when Aashima gets aware of it. How Aanjaneyulu bought smiles back in Vicky’s family life is rest.
Naruda DONORuda Artists and Technicians: More or less, hero Sumanth and debutant director Mallik Ram remained sincere to ‘Vicky Donor.’ This sort of atypical films works only on writing strength and formidable performances from lead artists. Mallik Ram grasped the essence in original but hurdles in crossing nativity, transmutation without altering the heart and soul was real challenge which they failed to break. Kittu Vissapragada and Vidya Sagar Rachakonda’s dialogues are cheerful and lively yet missing in authenticity. Occasionally, their lines became the basic lifeline. Screenplay was altered here and there. Why Mallik Ram followed the Bengali backdrop for heroine family as it is from Vicky Donor and ill furnished clinic setup for Tanikella is unknown. There was scope for improvisation corresponding with Telugu nativity. Despite a few lengthy and boring occurrences in narration, Mallik Ram had the space to juice more on drawing subtle emotions which he does towards end. Shaniel Deo’s camera work is mediocre in sync with given production standards. Editing department from Karthika Srinivas could have done a still better job. Sricharan Pakala’s RR was more intriguing than main score on songs. Production quality from Rama Reels, Supriya is just middling.
On to performances, Sumanth tried his best to be vibrant raising his normal energy levels. May it be dialogue delivery or body language, he was irrepressible. At certain areas, it appeared vociferous yet overall does a good job. Pallavi Subhash is a misfit. By divorcee characterization, she might be a right choice with noticeable elderly age. When it’s a movie centered on romantic track, Sumanth got many alternatives. There’s no substitute for Tanikella Bharani because he stood on par with Annu Kapoor’s excellence. Again, Tanikella too sounded noisy with his booming voice but excusable because he stole with screen presence. Rest of the casting like Suman Shetty and others made their presence felt.
