We get the feeling that the movie is already out there. Shiva Nirvana fails to deliver after two excellent movies. The screenplay doesn’t allow his emotions to shine through. It feels forced and formulaic. Nani is a good listener and does the right thing. Ritu is able to do what she can, but it’s not a memorable part. Aishwarya Rajesh plays a small, but important role and she is able to live up to it with her acting. Jagapathi Babu is given a more meaty role, and she excels. Other roles get registered and they do justice to them. BGM is not a good idea and songs never get registered. It’s worth a shot for Nani and Jagapathibabu.
Nanis’s speech at the press meeting was clear. He stated that this movie isn’t new and that it is very similar to old family movies we haven’t seen in a while. It’s like a 90s film made to evoke nostalgia and family sentiments…not sure why people expect something different. Based on this, the movie was okay, but it lacked the comedy and entertainment that Nani Anna is known for. Although the writing could be improved and the background score could be better, it’s still a good drama movie. You may enjoy it if you expect something old-fashioned and nostalgic, as the movie makers clearly stated.
