Fun and Frustration Review: Vintage Venky Back

Hyderabad, January 12: The Typical Director s Anil Ravpudi s latest flick Fun and Frustration, featuring Venkatesh and Varun Tej in lead roles has finally hit the screens here on today.

The Film got a positive response from the fans as well as critics.The film is tipped to be a perfect Sankranthi entertainer for audience. Tamannah and Mehreen Pirzada are the female leads.

Story of F2 :

Harika (Tamannah ) and Honey ( Mehreen ) are two beauiful sisters with attitude and high-handed characterstics. Venky ( Venkatesh ) who works as a PA to MLA , gets married to Harika in an arranged setup. Varun Yadav ( Varun Tej ) , who is a Hyderbad basthi youth likes Honey and engages with her.

Post marriage, Venky’s(venkatesh) life turns frustrating as milky beuaty Tamannah and her mom take over the proceedings at home. As soon as Venky finds Varun is his to be Co-brother , warns him not to join this family. But, Varun doesn’t gives an ear to Venky. After realising the mess they’re into, Venky and Varun , as advised by a neighbor ( Rajendra Prasad ) , goes to Europe trip. Knowing this Harika & Honey too go to Europe. All these characters end up at Prakash Raj Home in Europe.Rest of the story is about Why they join Prakash Raj Home , Did Venky / Varun succeed in their attempts to break the relation ? Who realizes first – the wives or the husbands ? etc. it on Big screen !

Performances :

Venky (Venkatesh) is the star of the film. For the generation who have grown up seeing Venky in Nuvvu Naaku Nacchav, Malleswari, F2 takes you to those days. Venky dialogues and comedy timing are excellent in the first half. Varun Tej is just par for the course as co-brother. For this movie Telangana slang used for him is artificial and doesn’t gel well. Tamannah is good and Mehreen mannerisms are over the board at times. Rajendra Prasad as the neighbor for Venky is good in few scenes. Prakash Raj appears in the second half as an affluent NRI and is wasted. Raghu Babu as MLA and Priyadarshi as Varun Tej’s friend are OK. Y. Vijaya and Annapurna play Grand mothers of the lead sisters.

Analysis :

We all knew that promotional videos hinted , F2 film is an out and out comedy genre one – which doesn’t mind about having story depth or logic etc. critics’ structure. Director Anil Ravipudi , as in his past films, shows strength in dialogue writing , generating situational comedy in first half. He picked up evergreen formula “ Bharyaa Bhaditulu “ and added contemporary treatment to it. What happens when our protagnists fall into all women dominant family ( of heroines ) context generates ample fun in first half which aptly backed by master of this genre Venky. Though slightly redundant , first half is full paisa vasool & attempts non stop comedy. Third song where two couples dance in intoxicated state, will be biggest commercial point with masses. As interval is done , the entertainment fizzled out though they keep on trying to make us laugh. Prakash Raj home episodes are pale , climax is farcical.

VarunTej’s forced telangana accent isn’t good, his characterization is okay.

Positives :

* Good comedy in the first half
* Vintage Venky is back

Negatives :

* Climax
* second half
* Songs by DSP could have been better
* Thin Storyline
