Nippu Movie Review

Director Gunashekhar and producer Y.V.S. Chowdhary were actor Ravi Teja's roommates during their early days in Chennai and for the first time in their career, the trio joins hands to make a film Nippu, which has been riding on high expectations around the film circles.


The film revolves around Surya (Ravi Teja) and his close friend Sriram (Sriram), who have migrated to Saudi Arabia. Sriram faces death sentence in Saudi Arabia as it is believed that he has killed his lover Vaishnavi (Bhavana). But the fact is Vaishnavi accidentally dies by falling from the roof top.

Sriram can be saved only if his dead girlfriend's parents forgive him and sign the mercy petition. This becomes Surya's goal. Vaishnavi is the daughter of Raja Goud (Pradeep Rawat), who hates Sriram for some reasons. Surya knows that it is difficult to get papers signed from Raja Goud. How Surya manages to get the signs forms the rest of the film.

Ravi Teja's films are neither pretentious nor have any semblance of a convincing storyline! But they are just mass entertainers. His sole strength is that he can excel in dialogue delivery, dance and fight scenes. But lately his formula has not been appealing to the audiences and Nippu is one more addition to the list of mediocre films from Ravi Teja.

As usual Ravi Teja is best in comedy and action sequences. Deeksha Seth is cute, but has nothing much to do. Pradeep Rawat and Mukul Dev's performance are on expected lines, however, Brahmanandam excels in a few comedy sequences. Talented artists like Rajendra Prasad and Sriram have little opportunities in the film. S.S. Thaman's music is also ordinary. Camera work is good.

It is surprising that Gunashekhar, who did some brilliant films like Okkudu, has written a weak script like Nippu. The narration in the first half is dull, but the second half generates some interest only to nose-dive in the climax. This is perhaps the weakest film from Gunasekhar. All in all, Nippu fails to appeal as it does not have a good script!
