Story: Jasmine Falguda alias JAFFA(Brahmanandam) is an expert in escaping from jail. He narrates his story to a writer about his experiences. Jaffa is a software engineer and he is tortured by his boss Melkote (Melkote). He gets arrested for being responsible for his colleague’s death (Dhanraj). How he escapes from the jail forms the remaining part?
Performances: Brahmanandam tried his best to pull the film with his typical repeated expressions but sad, he couldn’t do it. Vennela kishore, Dhanraj, Melkote, Thagubothu Ramesh, Ahuthi Prasad, Raghubabu and others played supporting roles and they have no idea what they are doing. Cinematography (angles) is okay in few scenes. Editing is jerky. Anup’s background score is pretty mediocre. There is no story and the screenplay is boring. The direction is amateurish. The production values are poor.
Analysis: Vennela Kishore who tasted a failure with his directorial debut “Vennela 1 ½” is back with another logic less and insane story. The movie raised expectations due to the stylish trailer and Brahmanandam factor. The movie starts on a confused note and after the first half an hour it becomes irritating and repetitive. The second half is very hard to tolerate. Brahmanandam who saved many films earlier could not save this as there are no proper scenes that establish his character nor entertainment. The Technical departments couldn’t save this content less film. Cinematography is okay in few places. Editing and Artwork are poor. Screenplay is boring. Anup Rubens came out with mediocre background score. The story, Screenplay, Dialogues and Direction are hopeless.
Vennela kishore hasn’t followed minimum basic rules which build a movie. Neither a Scene nor an emotion has worked well. Vennela kishore has failed out utterly. There is absolutely no entertainment. There are a couple of humorous dialogues/scenes but they are out of place. You can witness a couple of Facebook jokes which have been shared a hundred times. One cannot understand what church father ( Raghu babu) is doing there. Thagubothu Ramesh repeats his routine drunkard act and it’s horrible. The coffin comedy is unbearable. The only best part of the film is its short duration and it has no songs. It looks like a dragged short film shot on Digital Camera and watched on a big screen.
Poor Story telling by Vennela Kishore.
Reel guru Meter:
Minus: Story, Screenplay, Direction
Verdict: Horrible Torture. Keep away from this illogical short Film.
