Varun Sandesh, who has faced series of flops after Kotha Bangaru Lokam is all set to strike the silver-screens to test his luck today with the film Kudirithe Kappu Coffee. The movie has been released approximately in 100 screens. KKC is a non-commercial urbane love story. Will Varun scores a hit finally? Here is the Kudirithe Kappu Coffee Movie Review. Check out…
Venu (Varun Sandesh) develops hatred towards love and love stories as his close friend Ravi commits suicide due to love failure. Venu’s father sends him to Coorg to improve the business of coffee shop, which he had given away to his close friend’s mother Malathi teacher. Venu however does not reveal his identity to them. Lasya, the granddaughter of Malathi completes Hotel Management and is also in plans to turn the Coffee Shop into a top class resort. She joins with Venu for their goal and in the process she falls in love with him. However, Venu who is in misconception about love shows disinterest towards her. How does Venu finally fall in love clearing his misconception is he rest of the story.
Varun Sandesh came up with a clean-shaved look in the film unlike his earlier ones, but has to say, it did not suit him to his best. However, compared to his earlier films Varun has been improved in his dialogue delivery. KKC did not give much scope for emotional scenes. So, Varun has justified to his role.
Debutant Suma Battacharya looked good in few scenes and performance wise, she is convincing.
Bhimaneni Srinivas Rao and Tanikella Bharani were fine. The lady who did the role of Malathi teacher gave a decent performance.
Director Ramana Salva has come up with a distinct storyline but somehow lost the grip on the plot. His screenplay and direction are the minus points for the film.
Santhosh Rai’s cinematography is an asset for KKC. The locales were fresh and nicely captured. Yogeshwar Sharma’s debut as a music director was appreciable. Back-ground score was praise worthy and Sirivennela’s lyrics are excellent. Dialogues by Abbur Ravi are okay in parts. Production values are good.
Though Kudirthe Kappu Coffee has an impressive storyline, it was badly dealt in its direction and screenplay. The movie moves on a very slow pace and you get a doubt if you are watching an art film at a point. It is hard to connect to the storyline as the director disturbs with the slow paced screenplay and misplaced songs. This non-commercial love story might be liked by the urbane audiences. But it’s hard to sustain at the Box-Office with World-Cup fever.
It’s not everyone’s cup of coffee!!!
