Can they? What they will learn in the process of making quick big bugs? Watch the movie to know.

F3 Twitter Review: No Logic Only Magic

Performances: Venkatesh excels in few scenes like no one else can. He proved that his comic timing is top notch and his combination scenes with Varun, senior actors like Annapurna and Y. Vijaya work big time. But his night blindedness act went over the top like comedians and director should have taken care of that. Varun Tej did well for the material given to him. But his mannerism did not work at places that it should have brought the house down. Tamannaah, Mehreen and Sonal have been used to add glamour and did just that. Rajendra Prasad, Suneel and Ali sequences make you cringe at times. Murali Sharma was apt.

Technicalities: Movie bases itself more on worked out F2 formula than being its own film. When it is not a thorough sequel, you can deviate from the formula and create more fun too. But Anil tried to stick that F2 format and at times dejavu kills few jokes as we feel we have already seen them. Venkatesh saves some mediocre jokes while rest of the cast are not given the material that they deserve. Mainly, Rajendra Prasad and Ali scenes doesn’t really work as much as the director expected.

Writing from Anil Ravipudi could have been better but the director seems to have started sticking to some troupes that worked for him in the earlier movies. Audiences these days expect freshness more than tried and tested cliches. While he tries to deviate from them he just goes over board at times. Hence, the film ended up below the expectations and it requires some patience to sit through. If you like Venkatesh, you may give it a try.

Positives:
Venkatesh’s performance
Few comedy sequences pre-interval

Negatives:
Over the top and loud narrative
Some cringe jokes
Dejavu inducing writing.

Bottomline: Strictly needs patience
