‘Nani, who is on a roll with five consecutive hits in the form of ‘Yevade Subramanyam,’ ‘Bhale Bhale Magadivoy,’ ‘Krishna Gaadi Veera Prema Gaadha,’ ‘Gentleman’ and ‘Majnu’ is gearing up for a double hat-trick with ‘Nenu Local,’ directed by Trinadha Rao of ‘Cinema Choopistha Mama’ fame. The first time combination of ‘Dil’ Raju, Nani and Devi Sri Prasad and Nani’s blockbuster spree has set enormous craze for the movie. Let’s see if the movie lives up to the expectations or not.
Story: It’s the story of a vagabond Babu (Nani), a middle-class guy who gets immense support from his parents in all aspects. With no aim in life and clarity about future, Nani, however, manages to pass out his Engineering by the help of the Invigilator who gets vexed up by him and helps in clearing the exams.
After the completion of Engineering, he gets into the frustration of ‘What Next’ and in the process, he comes across Keerthy Suresh and falls in love with her at first sight. Though Keerthy hates him, finally falls for him and everything seems to be alright, here comes the twist in the form of Keerthy’s father who is none other than the invigilator who helps him in passing out the exam. He opposes Keerthy’s love and doesn’t want his daughter to get married to an aimless and careless guy. He instead prefers Naveen Chandra who too in love with Keerthy and becomes a Police Inspector. Whether Nani succeeds in impressing Keerthy’s father and marry her forms the rest of the story.
Analysis: Though the movie falls in close resemblance to Trinadha Rao’s directorial debut ‘Cinema Choopistha Mama,’ it has its own advantages. This kind of role is a cakewalk for Nani and he has proven once again why he is called ‘Natural Star.’ Naveen Chandra’s role gives the extra mileage to the movie and he has done a splendid job. DSPs music is the major highlight of the movie and so are production values by ‘Dil’ Raju.
Verdict: It’s Nani all the way in the movie and many youngsters can relate themselves to his character in the movie. On the whole, ‘Nenu Local’ is a decent watch and Nani would surely achieve the rare feat of a double hat-trick with this movie.
Rating : 3/5
