Surya (Ravi Teja) is a happy go lucky guy who works as gymnasts coach. He is the friend of Sriram (Sriram). Surya falls in love with Sriram’s sister Meghana (Deeksha Seth). Meanwhile, Surya will have a riff with a local goon Raja Goud (Pradeep Rawat) and he seeks for taking a revenge on the erstwhile. Surya leaves to Saudi for his friend Sriram, who works for a company in the country. At the same time, the Saudi Police comes to arrest Sriram on the case of Vaishnavi (Bhavana) death. Vaishnavi is the daughter of Raja Goud and how does Surya solve the issue to save his friend Sriram forms the crux of Nippu.
Like every other film, Ravi Teja is energetic and has done justice for the role. His dialogue delivery, modulations in his gestures, hysterics were crowd pulling factors to the masses. His scenes with Brahmanandam were entertaining. However, Ravi Teja looked a bit old in the movie.
Deeksha Seth is hot and glamorous. She improved in acting by delivering a reasonable performance compared to her earlier outings. However, Deeksha needs to work on her expressions.
Rajendra Prasad and Sriram are good while Bhavana is impressive. Brahmanandam, Krishnudu, Dharmavarapu Subramanyam are hilarious. Pradeep Rawat is regular and Mukul Dev is okay.
Sarvesh Murari’s cinematography is the only aspect to boast of. The songs were pictured in beautifully. Thaman’s musical scores were mediocre while the background score is good. The normal fights were good but the visual effects played the spoilsport. It looked illogical and indeed was humorous. Dialogues by Akula Shiva were good at places
Though Gunasekhar’s story is decent, the screenplay is unimpressive while the narration is unconvincing. Editing on the other hand is pathetic. Better editing could have saved the film. Production values are standard.
Gunasekhar has penned the story with a friendship backdrop but the script is uninteresting and the screenplay is not gripping. The director failed to convince with his weak script which showcases neither the friendship scenes nor the family drama. The entire first half runs on comedy and only in the end of the first half the actual story begins. The second half of the film also moves at slow pace with hardly any intense or engaging scenes that keep audiences glued to screens. Nevertheless, the latter half is a bit better than the former. The action sequences especially the chase sequences were weak and illogical and there is a lack of quality comedy. Nippu might appeal to an extent to the formulaic movie lovers.
All in all, Nippu might open to good opening with the names like Ravi Teja, Guna Sekhar and YVS Chowdary, but the film do not have enough substance to register a hit at the Box-Office.
Nippu – Routine Formulaic flick
