Pandavulu Pandavul Tummeda Movie reviews
« on: January 31, 2014, 03:21:27 PM »

Pandavulu Pandavulu Tummeda is your typical time pass entertainer. The film delivers in the aspects it was meant to be.
Story : Told so many times before. The story of 2 big families of which 1 gets fooled by another in order to save the love birds.

Story & Screen Play : Routine story with entertaining screenplay. The film is hilarious in the 2nd half with in house comedy of errors. Don`t look for logic. On the other side, 1st half should have been better.

Performances : The film has wide range of actors and they have more or less managed decent performances. Manoj`s much publicised `Mohini` avatar stands out in the film!. It is the main source of entertainment in 2nd half apart from different other roles taken up by the .family`. Mohan Babu scores too in 2nd half. Vishnu & Hansika are apt. Rest are adequate.

Songs & Background Music : Music is average and Songs on screen aren`t any better. But they provide the glam quotient. BGM is a bit better than Music.

Direction : Mixed the Golmaal3 with Telugu style in-house drama. Okay.

Plus : Comedy, Mohini & Low expectations.

Minus :  Music & 1st half screen-play.

Overall Movie Rating : 3.25 / 5 ( Try it )

BoxOffice Verdict :

The film has been made and released by the Manchu`s themselves.  It should turn out to be profitable venture. Expect a minimum guarantee performance at the Boxoffice.

Pandavulu Pandavulu Tummeda Movie Review
PPT: Pitch-perfect comedy Timing!

Pandavalu Pandavalu Thummeda (PPT), touted as Manchu clan's multi-starrer, has garnered great buzz ever since it hit the floors. The movie marks the comeback of veteran actor Mohan Babu in a lead role, nearly after a decade. It also showcases Manchu Manoj in a never-before-seen role Mohini (draped in a sari). Director Dasari Narayana Rao donned grease paint after a while for a hilarious cameo. All these aspects created enough hype around the film. Let's sneak into the film to see how far they fetched!

Plot: Crisply, the movie is all about Naidu's (Mohan Babu) family and his five "orphan" sons Pandavalu- Vijju (Vishnu), Ajay (Manoj), Varun Sandesh and (Lucky) Tanish.

Mohan Babu (Naidu) is a foster, doting father to Manoj, Varun Sandesh and Tanish whereas Raveena is foster, caring mother to Vishnu and Vennela Kishore. With a sudden turn of events, both the two single families club to form a large family. Like any other family, it too goes through its rough phase. Yet, they brushes off their differences soon and gets united. Thanks to Honey (Hansika) who played pivotal role in family's union. Hansika has a troublesome background that pushes her into neck-deep difficulties. How Naidu's family steps in to save the girl (Honey)? What are the hurdles that come in between form the film.

Performances: The film's stellar cast-Mohan Babu, Vishnu, Manoj, Raveena Tandon, Hansika, Pranitha- is the big asset for the film. Of course, their pitch-perfect performances carry of the film totally. For Mohan Babu, Vishnu and Manoj essaying these characters is like a piece of cake. Everyone fit the bill and gave their best performances. After a longtime, one could watch Mohan Babu flexing his muscle and doing a jig. Yes, he enthralls us with his trademark acts and dialogue-delivery.

Vishnu is natural at his acting and does his best. One could watch the most stylish Vishnu as a gambler in the film. Vishnu's chemistry with Hansika worked out well and does magic again. Perhaps, it's a record that Vishnu-Hansika scored three hits in a row.

Manchu Manoj, who showcases myriad variations in his character, deserve a pat on his back. Especially, his lady getup Mohini steals the show. Manoj, who did it with so ease, bags extra brownie points. Pranitha's glam show, Brahmanandam's humour touch are icing on the cake.

Direction: Director Srivas has hit a jackpot with this out-and-out entertainer. With a good star cast , it's a cake walk for Srivas.

Music: Music by Baba Sehgal, Achu and Keeravani is soothing and easy on ears. Lyrics are equally good.

Technical aspects: Songs, scenes shot against picturesque foreign locales (Bangkok) are visual treat.

Thumbs up:

1. Ensemble cast
2. Title
3. Witty dialogues
4. Commercial elements
5. Cinematography
6. Picturesque locales
                 
Thumbs down:

1. Cliches
2. Minor editing errors
3. Predictable twists

Analysis:  After Denikaina Ready and Doosukeltha, Manchu Vishnu has clocked a hat-trick hit. The film is totally engaging and funny. Director and writers tactically got the nerve of Telugu audiences- the film tickles your funny bone to the hilt. After all, that's what common audience expect.

If director could have avoided few cliches, minor editing errors and predictable twists, the movie could have become a classic comedy.

On whole, the movie is a breathe of fresh air with right doses of comedy, sentiment, romance, action. But the only disappointment for Manchu fans is they will sure miss Manchu Lakshmi. Wish, director Srivas should have penned a well-conceive role for Lakshmi.

Bottom line: The film has all the elements to satiate your hunger. Watching PPT (Pandavalu Pandavalu Tummeda) is treating yourself as it gives you a new experience altogether.

Manchu heroes multi- starrer 'pandavulu pandavulu thummeda' was released on 31st of January. Having watched the movie, some of the audiences felt that the movie's story was a nice mix of Sobhan Babu's 'Devudu Mavayya'( Remake of bollywood's 'Dream Girl') and NTR's 'Narthanashala'. The love story between the hero and heroine who bring up orphans as their sons in the first half reminds 'Devudu Mavayya'.

On the other hand, Manoj's Brihannala kind of role, the characters of other star cast  of the film were very much similar to 'Narthanashala' in the second of 'PPT'. The movie was directed by Sriwass while it was starred by Mohan Babu,Vishnu, Manoj, Varun Sandesh, Tanish, Hanish, Pranitha and Ravina Tandon.

Release date : 31 January 2014
123telugu.com Rating : 3.5/5
Director : Srivas
Producer : Mohan Babu
Music Director : Bappa Lahari, Achu
Starring : Mohan Babu, Vishnu, Manoj, Hansika, Pranitha,..


The Manchu family has come together for the romantic comedy entertainer ‘Pandavulu Pandavulu Thummedha’. Bollywood actress Raveen Tandon is making a return to the Telugu screen after a long time. With a talented director like Srivas at the helm, this star studded movie has created a good buzz before release. PPT has released today across the world, so let us see if it can live up to the expectations.


Story :
Tourist Guide Naidu (Mohan Babu) operates in Bangkok. He stays with his three adopted sons (Manchu Manoj, Taneesh and Varun Sandesh). Naidu has a long lost lover (Raveena Tandon) and he keeps thinking about her quite often.
As fate would have it, Raveena Tandon is also present in the same city. Raveena has two adopted sons ( Vijay aka Vijju (Vishnu) and Vennela Kishore). Vijju is in love with Honey (Hansika), who stays with them.
Unexpectedly, Naidu and Raveena Tandon come across each other one day and decide to get married. While this is opposed initially by the kids, they come to know about the sacrifices made by Naidu and Raveena, so they finally agree.
But Honey has a secret flashback that is revealed quite unexpectedly. She is pursued by Suyodhana (Mukesh Rishi), the don of Kauravapuram. He wins Honey in a bet and decides to get her married to his son Gaja. When Naidu and his family comes to know about this, they decide to enter Suyodhana’s house in various disguises, to disrupt Gaja’s marriage with Honey.
How they achieve this goal is what PPT is all about.


Plus Points :
Dr. Mohan Babu is an accomplished actor with great dialogue delivery. He uses both attributes to great effect in this movie. While his performance as Tourist guide Naidu is good, he really comes into his own in the second half, as Graha Raja.
Vishnu and Manoj have done well in the roles allotted to them. Manoj has good comedy timing and his performance is a big highlight for this movie. Hansika and Praneetha add the required glamour quotient.


Raveena Tandon still has the good looks and she will be a perfect fit for roles that require a certain maturity. Brahmanandam entertains in the second half of the movie as Bapure. Vennela Kishore, Raghu Babu, Mukesh Rushi and Telangana Sakunthala have brief roles, but they have done a good job.


The second half of the film has good entertainment levels. The interval block has been conceived well, with the right amount of emotions.


Minus Points :
Taneesh and Varun Sandesh have been completely overshadowed in the movie. The comedy sequence involving M.S. Narayana is not every effective.
The story is quite routine and cliched. Movies like ‘Ready’, ‘Dhee’, ‘Kandireega’ etc. have the same formula of the hero and his family going to the villain’s place in disguise, to change the villain’s family. As a result, there is nothing to look forward to in the next scene. Regular movie goers will be able to guess what will happen next.
The pace of the film drops towards the climax and the movie has been wrapped up abruptly. Songs act as speed breakers and do not help the movie in any way. The length of the film could have been trimmed in the second half.


Technical Aspects :
Cinematography is very decent and visuals look rich and colourful. Editing is ok in the first half, but not very effective in the second half. Some dialogues are good, especially the ones written for Mohan Babu.
Srivas’s direction is ok in parts. He has shown his talent in few places like the interval fight sequence.


Verdict :
‘Pandavulu Pandavulu Thummedha’ is a decent commercial entertainer from the Manchu family. It feels quite good to see Dr. Mohan Babu, Vishnu and Manoj together. Commercially, this film should score well at the Box Office as the entertainment quotient is quite good.

Story

Pandavulu Pandavulu Tummeda reviewNaidu (Mohan Babu) is a tour guide in Payyata (Thailand) and is a father of three children (Manoj Manchu, Varun Sandesh and Tanish). He meets his old flame (Raveena Tandon) in Pattaya who is also a mother of two kids (Vishnu Manchu & Vennela Kishore). Meanwhile, a gang is searching for Honey (Hansika Motwani) relentlessly. Just as Naidu and his old flame clear up the misconception and unite themselves, Honey gets kidnapped. The rest of the story is all about how the pandavulu enters Kaurava’s place under disguise to get Honey back.

Artists Performance

Pandavulu Pandavulu Tummeda reviewActors: This film totally belongs to three actors Mohan Babu, Manoj and Vishnu. Mohan Babu plays the role of Naidu that has different shades like a doting father and a strategist. And has two different get-ups: a tour guide (first half) and an astrologer (second half). Vishnu looks very good in action episodes and his chemistry with actress Hansika is nice. It’s Manoj Manchu steals the show with Mohini character in the second half. He plays a character that has three different dimensions - a conman, a lady and a cop. He has shown nice variations in these three characters. His portrayal of Mohini character is superb. Varun Sandesh does a character who has the knack of coming up with hatke one-liners. Tanish plays the role of a mute guy and is alright. Hansika Motwani adds glamor with her looks. Praneetha looks good as modern girl. Raveena Tandon is paired up with Mohan Babu and made a re-entry into Telugu after a huge gap. Brahmanandam is entertaining as Bapure - a Telugu language/culture lover. Vennela Kishore had less screen space, but does well. Supreet will get a break as comedian with this movie as his character is well written for entertainment in the second half. Dasari Narayana Rao did a cameo as Raveena Tandon’s father in flashback episode. Telangana Sakuntala is good though she acted in a couple of scenes. Rukesh Mukhi, Shravan, Giri Babu and others are adequate.

Technical departments

Pandavulu Pandavulu Tummeda reviewStory - screenplay - direction: Story of the film is divided into two parts. The first half story of the movie is inspired by Golmaal 3 film. But the writer has added another element in the story which leads us to the part in second half. The concept of getting inspired by Narthanasala movie and enacting 13th year of Pandava Vanavasam in Kaurava’s place in disguise is a novel idea. The comedy of errors that are generated due to the screenplay of Manoj doing two roles Mohini/Mohan adds up to it. The director who didn’t show his grip of narration in the first half managed to get things right in second half mainly due to a good screenplay technique.

Pandavulu Pandavulu Tummeda reviewOther departments: Dialogues written by Diamond Ratna are partly good. Music scored by Achu and Bappa Lahari is okay. Chinna has effectively used a few nice old songs in background music to help the situations. Cinematography by Palani Kumar is fine. Some of the action sequences composed by Manoj himself are good. Editing is alright. Producer Vishnu is concentrating more on entertainment aspects in his films which is turning out to be a right thing to do.

Analysis

Pandavulu Pandavulu Tummeda reviewFirst half of the film is okay. Second half has some nice entertaining moments. Plus points of the film are main leads, screenplay in second half and the lady get-up of Manoj Manchu. Pandavulu Pandavulu Thummeda is a kind of film that caters to everybody. With entertainment as it’s strength in the second half, the prospects of Pandavulu Pandavulu are good at box office.

Manchu family burns hands with Golmaal 3 remake

Manchu family have burnt their hands with Golmaal 3 remake without taking remake rights and lifting the script illegally .

Raju shah owns the rights of Golmaal 3 earlier filed a case in Bombay High court against the makers of Pandavulu Pandavulu Tummeda, 24 Frames Factory and Sri Lakshmi Prasanna Creations, for illegally using Golmaal 3′s story in spite of their repeated denials.And now the case went for a out-of-court settlement as Mohan Babu agreed to pay compensation of Rs 90 lakhs.

Pandavulu Pandavulu Tummeda was reportedly said to be made with a budget of 30 crore and the movie has not even crossed 10 crore share till now , incurring huge losses for Manchu family as the movie was their own release in some regions.
